"When in Boston, None Bettah!"
Quite frankly, we had never heard of this hotel prior to our making reservations. It was based on the photos and waterfront location. It certainly could not have worked out any better! We drove to the hotel and upon pulling up to the entrance, were greeted by the 'biggest' smile in New England. The doorman, impeccably dressed, wished us a warm welcome and directed us in while he handled our luggage. In taking us to the front desk, he introduced us to his colleague, wishing us a wonderful stay. She was quite welcoming herself and made sure to review the details of our stay as well as the surrounding area and its various attractions. Lastly, she directed us to concierge to discuss dinner arrangements (throughout our stay they recommended several restaurants, all amazing in their own right). Our room was simply outstanding; elegant and well-appointed and remarkably spacious. It made us feel 'pampered' to be staying there. Especially enjoyable was having in-room breakfast at our window, overlooking the harbor. Service was of the utmost standards. Anytime we interacted with staff, it was a warm and well-received conversation. Any and all requests were accepted with delight and honored. Concierge was completely engaged in our needs and desires. And everyone seemed to know our names. Though we did not dine in, the hotel's restaurant was visually stunning, with food to match according to some fellow guests. The hotel's location is virtually perfect, as it is a short walk to 'anywhere and everywhere' be it the financial district, the Freedom Trail (a must!) or through the heart of the area featuring countless cafe's/bakeries and small restaurants/eateries. Even an evening walk to Legal Harborside (a different review- pls read) was exceptionally enjoyable as your cross a bridge over the harbor. Checking out was bittersweet, though as seamless as checking in. And when they wished us safe travel and hoped to see us soon, they REALLY meant it! None bettah, indeed!
"YEA, BOSTON HARBOR HOTEL’S SUMMER SERIES IS BACK"
If you are visiting or live within driving distance of the Boston Harbor Hotel, treat yourself to one of their free outdoor summer music events offered Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings from 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. It is a relaxed atmosphere where one can sit (cushions are provided) on the steps casually or enjoy one of their tasty menu items, while sitting at a small round table. Whatever your choice the entertainment is outstanding. We listened to Steve Mammolo and his talented musicians last Wednesday. This is always a great take for those, who enjoy Boston, The Boston Harbor Hotel, and music. Hotel underground parking is discounted after 5:00 p.m.
I have visited Boston many times over the years, but this is my first stay at the Boston Harbor Hotel. The location of the hotel is great. Right on Rowes Wharf on the harbor front. It is within easy walking distance of the Financial District and many historic sights. The hotel is very elegant and simply decorated. Service is top notch. Particularly the concierge - Molly. Our room was a little small but in excellent condition and well appointed. The swimming pool was a little cloudy, but this is my only complaint. The Sea Grille is an excellent place for lunch, particularly if you sit outside on the terrace.
I would HIGHLY recommend BHH for any special event !! We have stayed at this hotel many times, in the past, and have always had a great experience. So, it was a natural choice when planning our daughter’s 16th birthday. We wanted a special experience for our daughter and her friends and BHH did not disappoint. The plan was for the girls to have dinner nearby, then go back to the hotel…swim, relax, spend time on the terrace of their room. With the help of everyone at the hotel, particularly Rachel in reservations and the concierge, Nathan , the girls had an experience they will never forget. From the moment I called the hotel, to discuss my plan, Rachel was amazing. She helped me plan how many rooms I’d need and where they’d be located. She was friendly, helpful and genuinely seemed interested and excited to help make this work. In fact, upon arrival, my daughter learned that Rachel had created a special geo-tag for snap chat, just for her. That was an amazing touch, first because my daughter and her friends loved it, but also because it showed that Rachel had actually listened when we spoke and paid attention when I talked about the girls. After booking, I worked with Nathan to arrange flowers and balloons. It was all PERFECT… the room looked amazing! He also took delivery of the cake and made sure it was set up in the room for when we returned from dinner. Nathan made check-in a seamless experience and made us feel so welcomed and relaxed. The hotel even sent up fruit, popcorn and root beer for the girls to snack on before dinner. EVERYTHING was spectacular. It seemed as though the entire hotel knew it was my daughter’s birthday. As with every stay we’ve ever had at BHH, the doormen, bellman and front desk were so friendly and helpful. Room service was wonderful. All in all, it was an AMAZING weekend thanks to the entire staff at this hotel. When my daughter got in the car, as we were leaving, she looked at me and said, ”It seemed like everyone who worked there knew who I was and that it was my birthday. Everyone I saw (staff) said Happy Birthday to me, even if I didn’t know who they were” She ended with “that was the best night EVER”…enough said!
"All is good"
Although I've been to Boston a number of times this is the first time I stay at this hotel. The location is superb, the service impeccable, the rooms classy, comfortable and very attractive. The view from the Bay View rooms is fantastic and watching the ships coming in and going out is a pleasure in itself. Breakfast is excellent and the amenities as a business hotel are first class. The outside walkway is an excellent place, specially in a good weather day, where to enjoy lunch or dinner, listening to one of the local bands featured on a daily basis. The location of the hotel allows for great access to Liberty Trail, the historic district and many other points of interest in the city of Boston. Don't forget to make your way to Newberry Street, you will not be disappointed.
