Boston Harbor Hotel

Refined comfort on Boston's waterfront
VERIFIED LUXURY
Boston Harbor Hotel is a beautiful blend of Boston’s colonial past and chic present, down to the American flag hanging under an ornate rotunda, waving in boats from their day at sea.

Every traditionally decorated, brocade-bedecked room at the Five-Star Boston Harbor Hotel features a skyline or water view, plasma TV and down-to-the-details provisions (including collar stays and stain-removal wipes).

Every service imaginable is available, from same-day dry cleaning to auto detailing, and all are delivered by an affable, professional staff that almost make you feel like a celebrity guest.

Dining options excel, too, from the impressive wine list at Meritage to the fresh seafood creations at Rowes Wharf Sea Grill. And the water taxi from Logan airport to the hotel’s own marina is the savviest way to get from touchdown to cocktail hour without delay.
