The front desk staff was pleasant and helpful; the room was expensive, but not surprising for its big city location; mattress was comfortable; I think all guest rooms have only a Queen size bed, but I'm not positive because I am not on the website; location was walking distance to the subway (the T), which was just several steps outside...

This hotel is conveniently placed and the room is lovely. It is a block away from the Quincy markets and just over the road to the harbor .Trolley tours is next door and the hop on hop off bus is great. They even left a Boston travel book in the room for you to read. It is right next to...

I am currently staying at The Harborside for business for a few days. Check-in is not until 3, but we were able to check in early. The hotel is chic and in an area of downtown Boston that is right in the middle of all the things a tourist would be interested in! Within a block, all the shopping and...

I was very pleased with the room and its facilities, fridge, iron, big TV and DVD player :-) The location for the Hotel is perfect. We took the subway from airport and straight to the Hotel, very easy. We could always get coffee in the lobby and an access to computers. The staff was very helpful and friendly. We got...

For the price of this hotel, the location truly cannot be beat. It is a stone's throw away from Quincy Market (where you will find an awesome food hall and lots of shops) and just round the corner is the Trolley Tours where you can buy tickets to take the hop on/off trolley tour. The New England Aquarium is a...

I have to say this was a great find. It is across the street from the water, near many bars and places to eat, a couple blocks from Quincy Market and in walking distance to the North End and Boston Common.The room was nice, very large by city standards. It was pretty clean (and I am very picky) and the...

They called it a 'courtyard view' room, but really it was a dark room with bad lighting looking out on an air shaft behind the elevator. The air was thick with construction dust, in the lobby and in the rooms (the entire ventilation system). I found myself wandering around outside as long as possible so I would just fall asleep...

At least six of us attending the same meetings were transferred to the Harborside Inn, the day after Boston bombings from the Charlesmark on Boyelston, (the Harborside Inn's sister hotel). We stayed at the Harborside during a very difficult week, during which time the Harborside staff was beyond helpful. Even when short staffed, (due to a city wide police lockdown),...

I am so glad we took the chance on staying here. The location cannot be beat! We were steps away from Fanueil Hall/Quincy Marketplace as well as the waterfront. Walk to Boston Common and Public Garden about 10 minutes. Parking for the night only cost $12 with validated ticket. 24 hour market a couple of doors down, as well as...

Reviewed 18 April 2013

One reason the rates here are comparatively good, is that management has invested in excellent amenities, but avoided the sort of ego-satisfying fluff that make a lodging place a monument. The unassuming entry tells you this immediately, as the friendly and very helpful staff welcome you, promptly take care of business and get you on your way to a nice...

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.
