Having worked in Guest Services at a high end hotel, it is always wonderful when a hotel lives...

Repeat visit to Boston Wine Festival with Chef Daniel Bruce for the Battle of The Cabs weekend event. Spent time in the hotel and enjoyed the ambience, and also the Meritage Restaurant and Conference area for the event. Can't say enough about the high level of service, food and wine.

Would stay here anytime I am in Boston, for both business or pleasure. Highly recommend. My only "complaint" is that there is no bar to speak of,...

I attended a Bridal Tea Party at the hotel this past weekend. I took the water taxi from the airport which docks right at the door of this beautiful hotel. Check-in was quick and easy. I had requested an early check-in and was accommodated. My room had a city view. It was spotlessly clean. Very upscale amenities including thick robes,...

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.
