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.

Perfect Location for Business!

It's a great hotel but even better, it's a short 8 minute walk from the train at South Station and then another short walk to get to any of the financial buildings around State Street. Plenty of easy places to eat all around it and the staff was great, they gave me an upgrade without my asking, room service was prompt and delicious, and for once it was a hotel where the wifi was free and fast. I would definitely stay here again as my first choice.

I just want to say that this is hands down the best hotel we've stayed at. The staff is amazing and went above and beyond our expectations. The food and facilities are hands down awesome! The views are amazing, the location is perfect. Very safe area. Close to everything you want to see and all attractions. You get what you pay for that's for sure and more!' Must stay at this hotel. You can't get any better than this.

Wonderful Hotel

We have stayed at several hotels in Boston over the years. I enjoy trying new hotels, but after the last two weekends staying at The Boston Harbor Hotel, I won't ever stay any place else. The staff was amazing. The hotel beautiful and the milk and cookies/cupcakes in our room daily were delicious. The staff went above and beyond multiple times. They forwarded a Federal Express package for me, surprised us with fruit in our room one evening, and our waiter John was able to get me a lobster roll for breakfast one morning. Truly a fantastic place with people who make a difference in your hotel experience!

Beyond Exceptional!

This hotel is beyond exceptional! Spacious, luxurious suites with beautiful views! The staff truly went Above and beyond to ensure our comfort and that we had everything we needed! My husband and I stayed here with out twin 1 year olds and upon arrival they greeted us with a basket full of teddies and gifted them each with one of their choosing! Room service, turn down service, they even provided us with Delicious complimentary cupcakes and milk for the twins each evening before bed. Felt a bit like royalty staying here! Cannot fault it at all! And you can catch a ferry from
The airport to the hotel dock! Now that's special!!!!!

Amazing location, views & service - 5 star experience

We had a connecting room with Harbor Views on the 15th floor. It was spacious and the view was fantastic. Housekeeping was wonderful; the room was very clean and their turn down service with slippers and bottles of water was a wonderful way to end the day. They even provided milk & cookies for the kids as part of their family package! The hotel was perfectly situated on the harbor, great for an evening stroll or to walk down to the Aquarium or Faneuil Hall area.The Sea Grill Restaurant had a nice buffet breakfast and the staff was lovely. The bar lounge, Rowe's Wharf, was a great place to get a drink in the evening with prompt service. Everyone from check in desk to the bell staff was friendly and accomodating. A five star experience!

Outstanding Experience

We only had the pleasure of staying here for one night and it was above our expectations. We have stayed at several other high grade luxury hotels in Boston and none of them exceeded the Boston Harbor Hotel. The decor, cleanliness and staff are all exemplary. The rooms are gorgeous, especially those overlooking the harbor. Easy acces to the business district as well as Quincy Market. We will return for sure.

Just beautiful

This place is one of the best! Fabulous service, beautiful rooms that were clean and well stocked with anything you might need, the WiFi is plenty fast enough to work with or to just stream a movie to your tablet when your spouse is sleeping (Dont forget your headphones!). The In-Room dining is really good and has prompt service for such a large property.

Wonderful weekend at the Boston Harbor Hotel

Our family of 5 attended a spectacular wedding at the Boston Harbor Hotel and spent two nights at the hotel. The entire stay was first class! The rooms were well-appointed, clean, and comfortable. Beds very comfortable, room(s) spacious. Our rooms had entry hallway with one double room on left and the other room double w/sofabed. Bathrooms had all you would need with plenty of space. We had City View rooms, other rooms have the harbor view. The lobby and lower spa/pool levels are beautiful too! Most of our dining centered around the wedding weekend and the food was delicious. The hotel is not short on staff and I could not believe how many employees they had tending to every detail. The property is located conveniently to financial district, South Station, Quincy Market, Harborwalk and the Seaport. I would love to stay there again and it is perhaps one of the finest hotels we have ever stayed with top rate service.

Luxury on Boston Harbor!

We have been coming to the Boston Harbor Hotel for at least a decade and a half. There are many lovely hotels in Boston, but this one remains my favorite for many reasons (water views, beautiful traditional furnishings, great staff, good food, etc.). On our last trip to Boston, we came with guests, one of whom was new to the hotel and the city of Boston. Needless to say, she was enchanted by her room with a view of Boston Harbor and the hotel's dramatic setting on the water. I want to thank the staff because they honored my request for adjoining rooms in a particular part of the hotel, which made our last stay convenient and more special. The Boston Harbor Hotel never disappoints!!
