I have walked past this hotel so many times and admit to being curious about the interior decor since the building is a old brick building. Last week I had the opportunity to stay and I am here again this week. I am very impressed with the hotel overall. The rooms are clean and spacious. The bathrooms have tiled showers....

We really enjoyed our stay at Harborside Inn. It was our second visit, but it has been expanded and improved since our previous visit. The personnel were courteous and accommodating. We arrived very early, expecting to just drop off our bag, but were allowed to check in early in an available room. The room was clean and modern. The location...

The location is definitely ideal if you like to walked around the downtown. The staff are very helpful and friendly. The room settings are kind of strange, a huge mirror against almost entire wall doesn't seem fit the design in the room. I often feel it could slide down any moment....

We wanted a place to crash for the night, near, but not at Logan Airport. Harborside Inn fit the bill. Our room was very dark; the window looked into what seemed like a giant elevator shaft, so effectively, there was no light except the bit that emanated from a skylight high above. But it was quiet, clean, and well managed...

This was probably our seventh stay at this hotel. My last review I gave five stars, this time not so much. You cannot beat the location of this hotel. Check in was friendly and quick. The smell upon entering the hotel is an over powering scent of a strong perfume. We got a city view room. The room had an...

If you travel during weekends, this is a terrible place because you cannot get to sleep with all the people screaming and cars horn outside till 3 am. It is closed to Quincy market, but too close to it. The traffic is bad and cars jammed on state street all night. The noise is so loud and hotel's windows don't...

My daughter and I traveled to Boston for the first time and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Harborside Inn. The hotel is very well located and the employees are very friendly. It is 2 blocks from the Aquarium, Freedom Trail and very close to Common Boston We highly recommend it.

Absolutely loved this place! Only a few minutes journey from the airport and within walking distance of most of Boston's landmarks. Our room was great as was the bar and the staff were always friendly and polite. Will have no problems recommended this to anyone who wants to visit Boston!

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
