Due to a recent change in the ownership structure of our hotel, we can no longer make charitable donations of any kind. These changes have come about due to recent regulations governing grants and donations in the banking industry, and our hotel is now governed by these criteria.

We are finding new ways to give back to the community through Employee Community Engagement Programs and related activities. If you think that your organization could benefit from such a program, please let us know and we would be happy to consider the proposal.

This is the perfect hotel for a trip to Boston. Very beautiful. True colonial/Boston feel. Beautiful views from Sea Grille Restaurant and from those rooms facing the waterfront. Staff throughout the hotel were gracious and attentive. They know your name and anticipate your every need. The doorman, Joseph, by far really made our trip more enjoyable. He was knowledgeable on the area and extremely cordial. A very pleasant man. This hotel is a fabulous location for visiting other Boston neighborhoods and attractions within walking distance... Faneuil Hall, North End, New England Aquarium, Legal Seafood Restaurant, Ye Olde Union Oyster House (a long time Boston tradition). Another plus is it's convenience to the airport by taxi or water taxi.

Awesome Experience!


Everything was amazing. From the moment we walked through the doors we were welcomed and treated like special guests. The manager that checked us in at the front desk asked if we were there for a special occasion and I informed him that this was my wife's Christmas gift as well as her birthday which was this weekend we were there. 30 minutes after first being in our room, the manager had a special plate sent up to our room with chocolate covered strawberries, pastries, and specialty chocolates. On the plate was written HAPPY BIRTHDAY in chocolate and a cookie cut out resembling the hotel's shape outlined in of course CHOCOLATE. Anytime we walked down to head out we were asked if we needed anything or needed a taxi for our days adventure. The turn down service was great. Everytime we left to go out on the town for the evening, we would arrive to our room being picked up, straightened, special presents and our house slippers next to our sides of the bed. My favorite hotel I have ever visited.

Service is Impeccable


We had a wonderful stay at the Harbor Hotel - a christmas gift from some very dear friends. I have to say that Rafik went above and beyond in his role as bellman. He graciously welcomed us to our room and offered wonderful advice on where to go during our stay. Then to top it off he personally drove us, in the hotel car, to the restaurant where we had dinner reservations! Everyone at the hotel made our stay very special. We look forward to going back.

Perfect New Year's Eve Hotel


Everything about the Boston Harbor Hotel was perfection. Our room overlooked the harbor (worth the price) which allowed us to see the fireworks right outside our window. This room was huge and so comfortable. The New Year's Eve package included dinner and brunch. My four course dinner included shrimp, sauteed scallops, filet mignon, and dessert. Each of the first three courses included interesting accompaniments and were delicious. The brunch is not to be missed - Halibut en croute, lobster, sirloin and more desserts than you can imagine. This hotel is right near Quincy Market - an easy walk. The staff is very attentive to making your stay perfect.

Best place to stay in the city!!


Decided to go to Boston for a "last minute" trip to meet some friends and made a great choice staying here. I was welcomed with amazing hospitality and my room was great. The hotel concierge was very helpful and professional. I highly recommending staying with The Boston Harbor Hotel. I will be returning!

A Fabulous Hotel!!


I travel extensively and purchase +- 200 room nights a year, in 5* hotels accross Europe, Asia, USA and Africa and so when it comes time to spend some quality personal time with the family, I do my homework to try and ensure that our stay is a enjoyable as possible and with all of the "information" that is available at the touch of a button, it's so easy to make the wrong decision, due to clever / glossy marketing, where frequently the product you though you had acquired is nothing like it, but once you've paid for it and checked in, you are committed. 

I chose the Boston Harbor, after looking at the TripAdvisor ratings for hotels in Boston and almost booked another hotel that was ranked #1, I then proceeded to read the Travellers Reviews and saw that the #2 hotel (The Boston Harbor Hotel at the time, though it's now ranked #1) had extraordinary reviews and that the General Manager has taken the time to respond to each and every one of the reviews. I then called the hotel and spoke with Elaine (shoutout) at the hotel reservations desk, who was absolutely fantastic and that was it! She couldn't have been more helpful and even saved me some money, with a better rate, for my extended stay :-) 

From the moment we pulled up at the hotel front door, until we (sadly) left, two weeks later, we had a wonderful stay. As you will read from the other reviews, the staff at this hotel (each and every one of them) are extraordinary! I would love to give the various Concierge's each a shoutout, as would I like to do the same for each of the Doormen, across to the Room Service Staff that were marvellous (setting up a completely dressed dinner table in the room, for a private meal, was never too much trouble). 

I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough and congratulations Boston Harbor on your recently acquired #1 TripAdvisor position in Boston!!

Outstanding attention to detail


After staying at the Boston Harbor Hotel, I don't think I will ever stay at another hotel whenever I visit Boston. In fact, the service at every 5-star hotel that I visit(ed) from that point forward has been (and will be) compared to the Boston Harbor Hotel as the gold standard to beat. From the second you walk in, you feel the sense of pride the entire staff radiate, and they cannot wait to show you why they are so proud to work there. Not even the tiniest detail goes overlooked--the nightly turndown with lip balm/eye gel on your pillow, the fresh flowers, the complimentary fruit plate delivered every afternoon to the room...these are just but a few of countless details they observe to make their guests feel cherished and never, ever want to leave. The dining throughout the hotel was consistently flawless as well--even the food ordered from room service was beautifully cooked and presented (room service delivered some of the best scrambled eggs I've ever tasted for breakfast, btw!). We reserved a harbor-view room and, despite all the sights that Boston has to offer, we couldn't wait to get back to our room before sunset to watch it from our window every evening. The location was perfect as well--just a short walk away from the endless dining and sight-seeing options the North End and Quincy Market have to offer. The service and staff at this hotel define "class act" and world-class hospitality in every possible way.

Another perfect stay!


My husband and I decided to spend a weekend here to do some Christmas shopping and just relax. We live in MA but don't get to Boston very often. We had a room on the 10th floor overlooking the harbor with a king-size bed. It was just the perfect room and the beds/pillows are so comfortable. We ordered room service one morning, which arrived piping hot and delicious. Even the presentation was beautiful. It was raining and chilly one of the days we were there, but it was a quick walk to Quincy Market where we spent the day shopping and had lunch. That evening we had dinner in the Rowes Wharf Sea Grille; delicious meal and excellent service. I have to say the service was excellent throughout the hotel all weekend. The staff is the best. Just a fabulous,special place to stay. We've already decided we should make this an annual event. Can't imagine staying anywhere else in Boston!

Unbelievable Service, Attention to Detail


I have stayed at the BHH well over 10 times and enjoy a constantly exceptional experience. Rooms are always clean and spacious, which accompanies one of the most helpful staffs in the industry. You never see people leave (same bartenders, doormen for years) and there is probably a reason for that. A+ place to stay in Boston.
