Why we choose Boston Harbor Hotel

Boston Harbor Hotel is a landmark urban waterfront resort

  • Dive into the indoor, saltwater, Olympic-sized lap pool
  • The Fitness Center offers complementary workout attire
  • Let the hotel’s House Car transport you in style

The Boston Harbor Hotel—the only five-star luxury property on the Waterfront—delivers a unique combo of history, location and top-notch service. It’s impossible to separate the hotel from its distinctive Rowes Wharf’s location, a revitalized brick-street area sporting quaint shops and lovely restaurants. The sight and sounds of swaying masts in the harbor and the refined, modern destinations merge the waterfront’s colonial past and its vibrant present right before your eyes.

What you need to know about the hotel

A picturesque location, indulgent amenities and unexpectedly thoughtful details make this hotel a winner

Built on the site of a 17th century battery, Boston Harbor Hotel has 230 rooms and impressive spaces with hand-carved wood and Italian marble. The accommodations start at a spacious 500 square feet, and each is equipped with a flat-panel plasma TV, Bose Wave radio/CD player, marble bathroom and views of either the cityscape or harbor.

The hotel has racked up an impressive array of awards, including the Forbes Travel Guide Five Star Award, and is one of Condé Nast Traveler’s “World’s Best Places to Stay.” Not surprising when you consider facilities like three award-winning restaurants and lounges, a deluxe spa and state-of-the-art fitness center.

Where is it and what's nearby

This Boston hotel is situated on one of the oldest wharfs in the country

  • Grab some greenery in 50-acre Boston Common, the starting point of the Freedom Trail and the oldest park in the U.S.
  • Part of Boston life since 1742, Faneuil Hall’s first floor is a lively marketplace, while the second floor still hosts political debates
  • At the Boston Tea Party Ships and Museum, you’ll meet “colonists,” explore the ships and dump tea overboard

Boston is one of the most historic cities in the country, and the attractions here reflect that storied past: many museums, the John F. Kennedy Library, the Old North Church, Bunker Hill Monument, Freedom Trail, Paul Revere House and much more. But it’s also a very cosmopolitan city, with upscale shopping, hot restaurants and a thriving theater scene. Old or new, Boston has it all and then some—and the waterfront Boston Harbor Hotel puts you in a scenic position to access whatever appeals to you.

How to enjoy Boston

Go visiting your neighbors in this city of neighborhoods. There’s Paul Revere’s house in North End and Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s house in Old Cambridge. Or you could take tea in Boston Harbor

  • See where The Scarlet Letter and Walden were published; the Old Corner Bookstore – today it is a jewelry store, but the building is still there
  • Lose yourself among the brick sidewalks and gas lamps of Beacon Hill, the former home of Louisa May Alcott, Oliver Wendell Homes and Robert Frost
  • Sample the After Hours program at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum to enjoy art, poetry or the bar; visit during the day to see Whistler, Rembrandt, Sargent, Botticelli and more

Words like ‘birthplace’, ‘America’s first’ and’ America’s oldest’ abound in this city of history and culture. Head to Lexington to stand on the place where the first shot was fired in the War of Independence. Browse the shelves of the country’s first public library. It’s not a museum; it is the Boston Public Library. Or grab a breath of fresh air at Boston Common, America’s oldest park.

And then, there’s Cambridge. Technically it’s another city, but really it is just a hop across the Charles River and is home to some of the world’s most renowned universities (Harvard and MIT) as well as one or two students. It’s also an excellent shopping destination with enough boutiques offering haute couture and off-the-rack to keep the most dedicated follower of fashion happy. Not to mention great funky world cuisine venues.
