This is a nice place. Looks great with lots of exposed brickwork and a cool atrium. Exposed brick in my 5th floor room too. Beds nice, plenty of hot water, linens were middle of the road. There is no restaurant or room service, you have to call out if you want delivery. And no gym or bar either. No coffee...

This hotel was prefect for our family in every way. The location of the hotel can't be beat and it was great being in walking distance of everything. The train is also two stops away from the airport which also helps with the convenience. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful which also added to the experience. Our room...

My husband and I just got back from spending two nights at the Harborview Inn and had a very nice stay. Here are the pros and cons of staying at this facility: PROS: The location simply can't be beat. You're close to great resturants, a block from the Freedom Trail, all the wonderful attractions and it has a subway stop...

This hotel is located right next to Faneuil Hill and the Quincy Market. You also have the harbor at a few steps, the freedom trail and best of all, a subway station right on the left which is just two stations from the airport so the location is worth the price. The hotel is clean and nice, staff is friendly...

There is no pool, no spa, no restaurant, no fitness centre, but all that means that they charge a far more reasonable rate than other downtown hotels. The location was great for us. It is within walking distance of the New England Aquarium, Quincy Market, Fanueil Hall, Hard Rock Cafe, Old State House, etc. The hotel is tastefully decorated, not...

I just attended a conference at the Boston Convention Center and this was a great location. It is 1.7 miles from the center. There is a Panera about 1/3 of the way and I picked up coffee and a bagel each day saving many $$. The inn is two blocks from Fanieul Hall which insures good dining and shopping. The...

We were pleasantly surprised to find this hotel for such a resonable price, right next to Quincy Market. The hotel was easy to find and is right next to the subway that will take you to the airport (confusing buying tickets on the subway, but that is another story). We were delighted to find ourselves right next to Quincy Market,...

The Harborside is a nice, smaller boutique hotel that is literally a few steps from the Aquarium Subway stop, no need to cab it from the Airport. The rooms are spacious, well appointed, and clean. As others have noted, if you get an interior room, they are very dimly lit and don't get any sunlight, but are really quiet at...

My wife and I spent a weekend in Boston and stayed at the Harborside. It is near all the major downtown attractions so it is an ideal spot for a short trip. The room was comfortable and clean. We were on the 6th floor on the front of the building but there no street noise. The Harborside is somewhat offbeat...

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.
