Location, location, location just may be the best way to describe The Boston Harbor Hotel. Situated at bhhextRowes Wharf overlooking the ocean, this landmark five-star hotel is just steps from Faneuil Hall, the North End and the Rose Kennedy Greenway. Be sure to request a harbor front deluxe room (with separate sitting area) for a beautiful view of the private boats, yachts, dinner cruises, and party boats pulling in and out of the wharf.

The waterfront hotel offers 230 guest rooms, including one- and two-bedroom suites as well as a luxurious Presidential Suite with butler service upon request. Award-winning Chef Daniel Bruce (the mastermind behind the 20-year-old Boston Wine Festival) offers small and large dishes paired with wine at Meritage The Restaurant. From its attentive service to the elegant accommodations, The Boston Harbor Hotel remains a standout in the city.

Insider’s Tip: Don’t miss the Summer Series here, which runs from June to September and includes Tuesday night R&B and soul bands, Wednesday night classic entertainment, Thursday night blues barge (complete with floating stage) and Friday night outdoor Movies by Moonlight series.
