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.

Excellent location and Well Appointed Rooms


This hotel is located by the water with great views and close to central Boston attractions. It is 10 min walking distance to the Aquarium and Fenuil Hall/Quincy Market. The hotel staff was great. Also got a free room upgrade when I told them I was with my wife on weekend trip in Boston celebrating our wedding anniversary. The room was spectacular with separate living room area. 

The hotel's Sea Grill restaurant offers outdoor seating facing the water where you can watch sail boats and yatchs drift by while enjoying superb seafood and drinks. 

I highly recommend this hotel.

Five Stars Experience!


Stayed for 5 nights with my wife. Hotel located at Rowes Wharf overlooking the harbor. Hotel is grand, with spacious lounge and sitting area. Staff extremely friendly & helpful. Always waiting to greet you & offer help. The room was grand & spacious. It comprised a large bedroom, a similarly large sitting area with desk, a walk in closet a good sized bathtub/shower separated from bathroom. Viewsover harbor were beautiful. Bed & pillows were comfortable. Location is strategic. You can walk by the harbor & take boats to various locations. It is also close to Boston city center which is full of shops & restaurants. We had a wonderful time & would definitely advise you to stay at this hotel if you are seeking luxury, comfort & in compromised service.

Beautiful Hotel and Staff


I had read all the great reviews on Trip Advisor, so I chose this hotel to visit Boston with my 69-year old mother. We both were very impressed by the beauty of our Harbor-view room and the friendly staff. Everything about the hotel really is beyond compare. 

The hotel is conveniently located near the heart of the city and it was fun to enjoy live music every night right outside of the hotel. The concerts end at 10 PM, so you can still have an early night. 

I would recommend this hotel to anyone who would enjoy beauty, luxury and extra-friendly staff.

Consistently Superb


We've been staying at the Boston Harbor Hotel twice a year for the past five years. When we pull up to the entrance the friendly doorman welcomes us like old friends, remembering our name, where we're from and that we're visiting our daughter. The excellent service continues through check in and bellman - accommodating, professional, helpful. The rooms are beautifully decorated in a classic, formally luxurious style. Many rooms have living areas with second televisions, sofas and chairs and all have lovely marble bathrooms. The buffet breakfast - from oatmeal to smoked salmon to eggs and meats to fresh berries - is beautifully served, Three cheers!

Wonderful hotel, Superb Service, Location and View


We loved Boston and the Boston Harbor Hotel was a big part of the reason why. The rooms were lovely, the harbor view was spectacular and we were within walking distance of most of the historical sites. The "Sea Grille" restaurant in the hotel was excellent and breakfast on the terrace overlooking the harbor was a special delight. The Sunset Sail on the Schooner Adirondack III was great and is available on Rowes Wharf right next to the hotel.

Boston at its Best


Our family of 4 recently stayed in a deluxe room with a harbor view. The hotel's location is perfect, and we enjoyed our daily walks along the waterfront to the New England Aquarium, Faneuil Hall, etc. Our room was very spacious, and very nice, with an incredible view of the harbor and sailboats. We found the hotel and Boston in general to be very family friendly. Everything was easy, which is rare when visiting a big city. You'll be hard pressed to find better service in Boston. The hotel restaurants were delicious. We had a great stay and would absolutely recommend that friends and family stay at the Boston Harbor Hotel.

Best Boston Experience Bar None!


The hotel staff and doormen are absolutely the best in Boston. Dave went out of his way to treat us like VIPs. The waitstaff accommodated our picky eaters, and also made sure that we had plenty of gluten free options. The rooms, beds, amenities can not be beat, and we have stayed in most of the luxury hotels in Boston. You truly know a superior hotel when you are greeted by name, and they say to you "Welcome Back".

No Finer Hotel in Boston!


The Boston Harbor Hotel is the finest hotel in my opinion. It's in a great location on the waterfront, has lots of places to fill your belly with good food and drink, and the staff is beyond superb. From the moment you drive up to the front door, you feel welcome. It's like returning home. Every member of the staff is friendly and attentive to your needs, even if you didn't know you needed it. We bring our 9lb Yorkshire Terrier with us everywhere we can, and it's immediately apparent that not only does BHH allow dogs, they welcome them. Lenny (said yorky) loves staying here because when he gets up to the room with us, there's a doggy bed awaiting him, a full bowl of BOTTLED water with a couple of spares, and of course, a bunch of doggy bones ready for his pleasure. Needless to say it's a race to ensure we get to the food before he does so he doesn't eat them all at once. Oh, did I mention that if you don't feel like getting up and walking fido, that the concierge will arrange to have someone walk fido for you?? GREAT SERVICE. 

For us (including Lenny) there really is only one hotel in Boston to stay in, the Boston Harbor Hotel.

Luxury on the Harbor


Everything about this hotel was wonderful, beginning with a delightful water taxi ride from the airport to the hotel. What a view coming upon our hotel and the Boston skyline from the water. Our room was quiet and spacious, with the most comfortable king size bed. What a delight to wake each morning to the sun glistening on the water with view of the harbor, complete with a variety of boats and planes taking off from Logan. All of the hotel was very elegant and pristine. And every person we came in contact with couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. The concierge desk got us Red Sox tickets, offered many suggestions, and assisted with transportation. The location offered a great spot to walk everywhere, along with the South Station T just two blocks away. We spent a lot of time just meandering along the harbor walk along the back of the hotel. The area was quite lively on a Saturday night, but not too noisy, just fun. We enjoyed a lunch and lite supper at the Sea Grille outside- fabulous food. I am trying to replicate the crab salad. The pool offered a quiet retreat to sooth after so much walking. This was our first trip to Boston and as I looked around at other hotel choices, I could not have been more pleased with our decision.
