Staff was very friendly and had a shuttle pick us up at the airport which is very close. Manager who check us in was very nice, friendly, quick and even upgraded our room to one with a nice view of the harbor. Room was very nice and clean.

This is no chain hotel, by any standard it is professionally managed as a boutique offering in a quaint tucked away location but still in the middle of everything. Rooms of generous proportion, delightful bedding, utterly quiet rooms, off-the-charts professional staff from door man to room service. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay

We stayed at this beautiful hotel in December 2016, right after Christmas. Loved everything about it. Location was superb, right next to Quincy market which had the most amazing selection of food. It was like a big food court, but elevated 100 times. The lobster rolls and clam chowders and lobsters bisques were all amazing. The hotel was only .82...

My wife and I stayed there for one Friday night with a number of co-workers to have our firm Holiday Party in the Hotel. The room in which we slept was very well appointed and comfortable. The bar was quite raucous with people celebrating the end of the week while waiting to take the ferry home. The private room for...

The staff are efficient and genuinely friendly, not fake friendly! Views are superb (opt for harbor view if at all possible). We come back here at least once every year and its just gets better every time. The rooms have been recently refurbished and they are comfortable but stylish. We thought the food in both restaurants was excellent, in fact,...

What an amazing place with a great location. Had a room on the top floor with a view of the city, it couldn't have been nicer. It was a mini suite, had 2 tvs, large bathroom, parking and many more amenities. Highly recommend well worth the price.

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.
