  • We arrived about noon in early October under blue skies and a temp in the upper 70's. The area lends itself to most anyone's tastes for dining and shopping, or just strolling and relaxing along the ha...  more »

  • Take a seat on one of the many benches after walking to city for hours and get lost in the Wharf. Boston harbor is beautiful to begin with but this location is extra special when you watch the sunset.  more »

  • We took a water taxi over to Long Wharf from the airport. We dealt with the door men to store our luggage and they were phenomenal; very friendly and helpful. The lobby was well air conditioned and featured a Starbucks. There's also an outdoor restroom. It's fairly dirty as would be expected from a public outdoor toilet, but they allow everyone to use it. Overall, it was a good experience.
  • I stayed overnight for a wedding, which also took place inside the hotel. Room was solid, great view from our window, and hotel staff were very nice. Delicious breakfast too (they had smoked salmon!). It is a high profile hotel though due to its location, so it can often get crowded and noisy once you step outside your room. My room was well air conditioned, but the lobby and halls were pretty humid and somewhat uncomfortable to hang around.

  • Some of the very best staff in the industry. From the doormen, to the hostesses and bartenders the service is exceptional. The on site restaurant is ever evolving bringing delicious options for every palette. The brownie sundae in a pan is not to be missed! The rooms are nice and the club lounge offers nice views of the wharf. The location is hard to beat located in the heart of the tourism section of Boston. The hotel is directly across the street from Quincy Market and seconds from the Italian North End. *Pro-Tip* Check out the other bakeries other than Mike's. Give Modern Pastry a shot, you'll thank me! Happy Travels! Timothy OLA Travel & Leisure "Traveling The World, Together"
  • Stopped in for a drink on a hot day. Bartender was fantastic, knowledgeable and offered to make a drink no longer on the menu, very good experience. Bar is not set up well, the back of the bar covers most of the view of the water, only disappointing part.

Where to stay in Boston

To stay close to where most of Boston's tourist action is, book a room at one of the many hotels located downtown, near the center of the city and state governments, businesses, and shopping. For a more affordable option, consider a budget-friendly boutique hotel or small bed and breakfast in one of the city's diverse residential neighborhoods. If you plan to stay longer and need a real home away from home, explore Boston's short-term rental options, which include private villas, waterfront lofts, and luxury apartments scattered across the city's historical districts.
