This morning we shuttled back to Boston Airport and collected a rental car. We had booked a Toyota Corolla but came away with a Dodge Challenger, a very sinister looking black beast. The drive to Plymouth, about an hour south of Boston, was an easy one with little inner city traffic on Sunday morning. A lot of the freeways out of the central Boston area are tunneled underground. This was done in the 1980s, a project called 'The Big Dig', to rid the cityscape of the ugly two ...
The weather has turned a little cooler this weekend, bit the sun is shining again and it was a lovely spring day to visit Boston. I took in a quilt exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art which featured quilts made from 1870 to 1920. Really interesting use of colour to provide pattern. The rest of the day was spent browsing through the Faneuil Markets and a lovely late lunch on the ...
... before a short film on his early life up until he was voted as representative and presidential candidate for the Democratic Party. He said he wanted to make his inauguration speech very short because it was freezing and snowing the day he entered into power. For the occasion Robert Frost was commissioned to write a poem for but due to the reflection of the sunlit snow being so bright he couldn't see the page in front of him and so he had to recite a poem from memory. ...
... and MIT. I feel right at home - I completed a Rubix cube once, perhaps my proudest moment as it came in front of my amazed nephews.
We arrived in Boston keen to get back to enjoying the US, after a tough week in the capital region. Unfortunately the continuing government shutdown had claimed one thing from our to-do list, the witch-trial museums and monuments in Salem, but plenty more remained in town. We began, after the obligatory ...
... week at a cultural proficiency seminar with Primary Source. I soon learned that the organization would be running a study tour to Peru. Machu Picchu! Why hadn't I ever considered this remarkable destination?
I started with some simple research regarding the itinerary. Lima, Cusco, Machu Pichu, the Pisac Market- all of the history I had somewhat neglected to present to my students over the past few years was suddenly at my finger tips.

Historical Traveler Reviews Harborside Inn Boston
We paid $185 for the night (plus $20 for off site parking) and didn't get to sleep until 4 a.m. We were on the second floor across the street from a bar. It was last month (October) and the Red Sox were in town so there was a party going on in the street outside the bar until after 2.
Be very careful
I am planning on visiting Boston next week. I made my reservations by calling the 800 number to the Harborside Inn. I received a confirmation number as well. Well, I called this week to confirm my room and was told my reservation was made at another hotel-Newbury House. I was very upset. That was not where I made my reservations and I was not told they were bookig me a room at another location. The manager was very unsympathetic and offered no apologies.... she kept telling me I knew this... which I most certainly did not. Be careful, make sure you confirm where you are staying when you make your reservations with Harborside!!!

A great find and a charming little hotel in Boston. Location is perfect, all the things you'll want to see and visit are within walking distance and the T stops right outside. Rooms are a little small by US standards but very clean and everything you need. Staff were very helpful and friendly. I'd definitely stay here again. Great value for money!
Very nice place. I would recommend it to anyone. The only thing I would say is to book a room on the 8th floor because it gets kind of loud on the weekends. All and all it was a good experience.
This was our first stay in the US, and we were very impressed with our hotel - the Harborside Inn, in Boston. The staff were very friendly and helpful with our questions, regarding train travel to Salem and Plymouth. The room was lovely and was kept clean and spotless throughout. We were impressed with Boston as a whole, friendly 'natives' and the smoke-free bars and restaurants were an added bonus. We would definately visit the area again.
I stayed there in July and used a reservation service through the Greater Boston Convention & Visitors Bureau. It was at least $100-200 off the rack rate! It is a simple and clean hotel - with charm and exposed brick. There is no doorman, but what does he really do anyway. The desk staff was very friendly and was helpful with recommendations.
Everything was OK till my last night it rained. The ceiling leaked, later I found out it had done so before, and I was up part of the night changing trash pans to keep the water off the floor. The water also got on one of my sport coats. The next morning they offered me $20 for my troubles. I had to complain and get on the phone with the manager and he offered me 50% of for that night only. I was up part of the night, I saved damage to their floor, and he offered me $70. I will never go back or will my reps who frequent that city.
My husband and I went to Boston for our 1 year wedding anniversary and stayed at the Harborside Inn. We could not have been happier. The location was perfect. Only a block from Quincy Market. It was also very close to the waterfront, little Italy, and Boston Commons and the Public Garden. The only area we had to travel to see was the Prudential Skywalk, the Esplanade, and the original Cheers. Everything else was very close. The rooms were very charming. A bit small but very comfortable. We opted for a city view room which was really unneccesary because there wasn't much of a view. Not like you're looking at the skyline or anything. But this is Boston, not the Bahamas so what do you expect. I just prefer an outside room but for a little less you could have an interior room with views of the atrium. There is no bell hop or concierge or room service. But the people at the front desk are more than happy to help you with anything you need. The hotel is very basic in the way of amenities. The restuarant was a bit disappointing. Fine for a nice lunch but too informal for dinner. However, there were so many great places to eat within walking distance, we only ate there once for convenience. Overall, the place was excellent. If you care more about the location and charm of your hotel than you do about luxury and pampering, this is the place for you.
It's a charming hotel with attentive service. Excellent location! Maro Bistro is deelish!
