I loved this hotel in Boston. The location makes it perfect for eating in the north end or Quincy market. Because it is on the blue line you do not need a car to get around the city. The harbor is across the street and walking is a must to visit all the area landmarks. Hotel is clean and has...

Amazing added amenities such as free wifi, free use of computers and printing and tea and coffee all day in the lobby. Is very easy to get to hotel as its only 2 stops on...

We stayed here to see a concert and we got a great deal! The price for the location was beyond value. I think we booked the room at discount, $89 (Not including tax, $113) for one night near the harbor in Boston?! Even places miles and miles away from the commons were way over $100. The bathroom was pretty cool,...

Room was clean and warm with a nice view of historic Boston. Front desk staff was friendly and helpful in suggesting a few places to eat as well. The perfect location for a game or concert at TD Garden or just a night out in the North End/Quincy Market area.

I considered trading in the room or reporting a complaint; this was for the first hour, where I had a scarf over my nose to muffle the smell. Then I discovered I could open the windows, and aired everything out! Slept with the window open; heating was very good.

Best value in downtown Boston. Great "Boutique" Hotel VERY close to everything in the downtown core. Many Irish pubs with in a few blocks. Only drawback is no one answered inquiry via website so had to call with questions. Best downtown parking rate we could find.

I recently stayed here with a friend for 3 nights. The lobby was beautiful, with computers and printers for guest use as well as 24/7 free coffee and tea. The room was good size with a small table and chairs. HDTV, surround sound, small fridge and safe. We got an atrium view room which took a little getting used to,...

Recently stayed for a weekend. The highlight of this hotel is the location. It's extremely easy to get to if you're driving into Boston. There is a blue line T stop right outside, and an Orange line stop 2 minutes up State Street. Quincy Market and Fanueil Hall are 3 minutes away walking. There are unlimited pubs and restaurants all...

We spent 2 nights here recently. Loved the location as we could walk to so many attractions. Amazed to walk out the door and look at the Old State House and the Marriott Custom House. Had lunch at Durgin Park and strolled though Faneuil Hall for supper. Starbucks and Dunkin close. It was so quiet there that I wondered if...

This was our second stay at the Harborside Inn and we will definitely be back. In Nov 2011 we stayed in an 'Interior Skylit Atrium View' room. In Nov 2012 we decided to pay extra and stay in a 'Cityscape Outdoor View' room....HOWEVER,despite,the heavy,dark, wooden binds,the room was quite bright (morning) and noisy- due to the busy road nearby- so...

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where, during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting children and eager tourists through the pond. Have your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
