Back to Boston

So an early start as we had a 7am Flight from Raleigh to Boston, so Hotel shuttle at 5:30am.

We arrived in Boston around 9am, and headed for the Hotel to our surprise they let us check in - which was great, so after a couple of hours we headed out.

First stop was to find the Cheers location, then we moved on to the JFK Museum, …

Well we are one bus trip away from NYC, 4-hours and we will have reached city number FIFTY, our final destination before home. Our journey to Boston was not one of my favourites, consisting of a freezing 8-hour bus trip and 3 subways. We finally reached Boston (Massachusetts) late on Wednesday evening, and have spent a fun-filled 3-nights/2-days …

It's Baah-ston not Boss-ton

... time. One thing that struck me right away about Boston was that the city provided a "union station" for the bus companies that operate in the metro area. Creating a space for buses to board and disembark elps make sure that bus travel is convenient, safe and clean in a major city when air travel may be out of reach for many people.

But once I got into Boston I realized that it was going to be colddd (but not as bad as Chicago). ...

Did the harbour front walk today which was lovely, the sun was out and we had a lovely walk around the waterfront of boston, the trail starts in Charlestown and goes all the way down to the site of the boston tea party, and further beyond into the industrial districts of Boston. The trail weaves and winds through the multitude of ...

... come out of our mouths was whether we brought our sunglasses?

Overcome with feelings of satisfaction and enthusiasm, we continued our journey to the hostel. My first impressions during the bus ride from the airport to South Station were even better than I had imagined. Cruising through the outskirts of the vibrant city, getting closer and closer to downtown Boston, while warming my face in the sun and trying to take pictures with my frozen fingers, ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Harborside Inn Boston

    One of the most disappointing hotels

    from

    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

    from

    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!!!

    Charming!

    from

    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!

    Great Experience!

    from

    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.

    Excellent hotel

    from

    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.

    Simple Hotel, Great Value, Excellent Location

    from

    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.

    Dissapointed

    from

    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.

    Location, Location, Location!!!

    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.

    Lovely!Charming!Convenient!Affordable!
