Very pleased with our stay. It was for our Anniversary and it could not have been better. Spacious room, city view and short walks to Fanueil Hall and the North End. Great breakfast the next morning at the Sea Wharf Grille.

We recently had three nights at this marvellous hotel and wish we could have stayed longer. Nothing was too much trouble. We've stayed at some pretty good hotels all over the world, but this was the best. Particular mention of Molly (concierge) and Jimmy and Joseph on the door for their help. Wonderful rooms and magnificent views. Expensive, but well...

We stayed here for one night - our last night before we headed back to the UK. The staff were excellent and friendly, Joseph and Frank were good. We did get a free upgrade to a deluxe room which included a lounge. The room was beautiful and excellent.

This hotel exceeded our expectations in every way. Beautiful and classic. Excellent location right on the harbor, providing not only excellent views, but a quiet oasis away from the bustling center of the city -- yet within walking distance to most of the historical sites and tours. The room was elegantly appointed, yet very comfortable with lots of space. All...

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.
