When looking for luxurious accommodations in the heart of Boston Harbor, one need not look further than Boston Harbor Hotel. The hotel has arguably the best location in all of Bean Town, right on historic Rowes Wharf Harbor. Families are given premiere access to all of Boston’s best family-friendly attractions, shops and restaurants, and each room offers breathtaking panoramic views of the harbor or city skyline.
Each room also includes at least one king bed, complimentary Wi-Fi Internet, a fully stocked mini-bar, a flat-screen TV, Bose Wave Sound System, a full bath, a large work area and 500 square feet of space.
Onsite dining options are plentiful and include the Meritage, Rowes Wharf Bar, The Alley Bar and, our personal choice for families, Rowes Wharf Sea Grille. The Sea Grille’s indoor and outdoor dining and casual atmosphere is ideal for families, and menu items include things like New England clam chowder, Atlantic halibut, a variety of lobster dishes, boneless rib eye, baked cod, filet mignon and more. The children’s menu includes peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, chicken fingers and fries, pasta, macaroni and cheese, cheeseburgers and other typical children’s fare. While the Sea Grille is on the pricier side of the spectrum, there are many more budget-friendly alternatives within close proximity of the hotel.
There’s also an onsite 60-foot salt water lap pool, training classes, gym and full-service spa.

We love this hotel! The location is great. The view of the harbor is so pretty. You feel like you are in a home away from home. The rooms are awesome and the staff is terrific. We were so well taken care of, it felt great and relaxing to stay there.

Excellent service, attentive staff, good food options, ambiance to spare, and comfortable beds. This is where to stay in Boston. Convenient to fine and casual dining within walking distance, as is the Aquarium, Faneuil Hall, and entertainment venues.
