If you are going to Boston and want to "do it all," you cannot beat this location! We were right on the water and had easy access to all the popular water attractions (whale watching, Duck boats, ferry to Salem, etc.). It's also an easy walk to all the Freedom Trail sites and the North End (where we love to eat). The Aquarium is also right across the street. The staff (especially the guys working the breakfast buffet) were top-notch and super friendly and helpful. Just be prepared, though, that this is a pretty typical Marriott. The rooms are clean, bright but not big. We upgraded to a suite (the "second best room" in the hotel according to the front desk) the day after we checked in and it was much bigger with a huge balcony but no extra closet space, only one bathroom on the other side of the suite away from the bedroom area, and no extra amenities (i.e., we still only had a small frig and coffee maker-- no microwave or extra space for food/drinks). There is only one restaurant/bar combo at the hotel and a small indoor pool, which were perfectly adequate but was surprised given how big the hotel is, there wasn't more (I think it caters to a lot of business meetings as there are a lot of boardrooms/meeting spaces on the lower level of the hotel). So the cost and pricing of the hotel is really based on how close you are to everything, which was worth it to our family and what we were doing on our trip. …
We stayed for one night with our toddler. Rooms were nice and clean. Service was fantastic. Location was the best - beautiful views of the harbor and walking distance to everything we wanted to do during our short stay. Would definitely stay again. We had a roof rack on our car, so we were worried we wouldn’t be able to park in their garage. No problem - they parked us (and others with the same issue) right outside the front door.
You definitely can't beat the location, right on the water, one block from Quincy Market. We got a free room with my Marriott points so they tucked us away in the far corner of the 5th floor with literally NO windows. That stunk but we were only there to sleep so who cares. Staff was friendly and helpful and advised us to take the train that is literally right outside their front door and is only two stops to the airport and $4 for two tickets instead of a $20 cab ride.
The room was nice although for a harbor view , it was hard to see the harbor from the windows. There was a nice Starbucks right in the lobby. Hotel was close to many attractions which is the good and bad of the location- very very busy area. Inside hotel was very busy too sometimes hard to get an elevator. But people who work there were extremely nice and helpful. Nice hotel but if you’re an older couple like us, might want a hotel a little less busy. Great hotel for families ! Which there were a lot of.
Stayed in the hotel this past Saturday night, overall an excellent stay, all the staff were very helpful and accommodating from door staff to server in the restaurant during dinner. The one anomaly would be Marc H. at the front desk, who was not like the other team members. Maybe because we checked in at a reduced rate and that is why we were not treated well; ultimately his supervisor came over to help. After that was resolved, we were not even given directions to the room by Marc (which was off the lobby and we went to the elevators), he didn't ask about our reason for being in Boston , did not orientate us at all, and generally was dismissive. That was not a great start to an otherwise wonderful stay in Boston. I would stay here again based on the rest of the staff and the location, and hope that everyone gets trained at the same level.…
We chose to stay here because we were taking a cruise to Provincetown from Boston Harbor and the ferry leaves right outside the door of the hotel. Loved our day trip and returned to dine in one of the many great restaurants by the wharf. We ate at the hotel for breakfast and dinner, to get back the 25buck hotel daily fee. It’s a cheap shot, but we probably would have eaten there anyway as it was just so easy. The food was very adequate, so no complaints. As we were checking out, a manager quizzed us about our stay and he seemed to genuinely care. I give a place extra credit when an employee has a genuine interest in service. As for the room, it was quiet, the bed comfortable and the layout fairly spacious for a city hotel. Great scenery by the waterfront, the area also felt safe. Yes, our stay was pricey, but worth it.…
Hotel is very centrally located and all you need is nearby. Rooms are average, but luckily we didn’t spend much time there. Views of the marina are gorgeous. Ayana the front desk rep was amazing and very nice. Thanks for making our anniversary memorable
I visited Boston for the first time for a 3 day trip with my family of 5 and this was EXACTLY the right place to stay. We got a water taxi from Logan Airport right to the hotel. The harbour location is beautiful, buzzy and airy. The hotel rooms are functional but very clean and comfortable and the whole experience was relaxed for children. The food options and room service offered by the hotel are rather limited but there are some decent restaurants in close walking distance. The duck tour and aquarium were super for the children. Have fun! :)
Located right in the heart of the tourist area, and along the waterfront, this hotel did just about everything well. Room was quiet and the property is well maintained. For Marriott Elites breakfast is offered a separate lounge. However, food comes from the same buffet as the regular restaurant guests
We recently canceled our trip to Spain due to Covid restrictions and settled on Boston. When I called looking for advice from a concierge, I was pleasantly surprised to have our entire 6 day trip planned by Lisa. She asked what our family liked to do and took it from there. Her restaurant selections were outstanding and my family had a blast on Segways, boats, trolleys, walking tours and day trip to Martha’s Vineyard. She seemed to know everyone, including on Martha’s Vineyard. Loved having Ghosts & Graveyard tickets come with our room. We wanted to do the free bike tickets, but ran out of time. Our room was great - clean and spacious. We cannot thank the staff, including Lisa, enough for the hospitality. We will be back.
