All in all; quite some exciting events have been going on in and around BC and the summerlike temperatures are making it a lot more pleasant. However, the most exciting is yet to come: in only 4 days, I will be picking up mom from the airport and we will be exploring the east coast together like no one has done before! Can’t ...

Today, I learned how to measure someone’s pulse using the necessary equipment and how to integrate the corresponding data into several computer programs. After two hours of intense lab work I decided to go look for the famous campus coffee/chocolate bar and treated myself on a chai tea latte and a chocolate chip cookie the size of my face. ...

... as long as you are learning and feel comfortable, who cares! From that point on, I was determined to learn and have as much fun as possible. At the end of the day, those were extra credits and I was in Spain! When my time was ending in Granada, I had mixed feelings. I didn’t want to leave, but it was time for me to come home. Home to what though? A job I slowly started to resent and a life that held no happiness for me. I immediately had to jump right back ...

... Toscanini's to anyone travelling to Boston...not least for its adorable plastic polar bears which dangle from the ceiling as adorable Christmas ornaments. Christmas! It's just around the corner now and has somehow snuck up on me. Normally by this time I would have nativity songs stuck in my head on a permanent loop, glitter stuck to every item of clothing and a wild look in my eyes any time any one mentions the end of term. Feels very strange not to be working in a school right now!

    Historical Traveler Reviews Boston Marriott Long Wharf

    Disappointing...

    from

    Pros: Very nice setting & location, great views, nicely appointed (but small closet and only 2 small drawers for clothes), most staff was generally pleasant tho not quite as pleasant as one might expect for the price.

    Perfect spot!

    from

    Great hotel, perfectly situated for seeing boston, fenial hall, etc.

    Will be staying there again!

    Very nice place

    from

    Great place to stay in Boston while touring around. The location is convenient, the hotel staff was great. We stayed on the concierge level, which is well worth the extra $'s. You get continental breakfast, snacks in the afternoon, desert in the evening. The staff in there was excellent! Great view of the harbor from up there too!

    Bed, Breakfast and Beyond!

    from

    I loved this hotel! Great rooms with a fantastic view of Boston and the harbour....out of this world breakfast buffet.....walk to many attractions, historical sites, fabulous shopping and dining. The architecture of this hotel is awesome!

    Great Hotel!!!!!!!!!!!

    from

    The Marriott Long Wharf is a great hotel. The location could not be better. Fanueil Hall is two minutes away by foot, the Aquarium is literaly across the street, and the ferries all leave from Long Wharf. It is a very kid-friendly hotel that has a great indoor pool and a health club with great locker rooms. The rooms are very clean and offer views of Waterfront Park or the Aquarium/Waterfront. This is definitaly much nicer than the three-diamonds that AAA has given the hotel. We would definitely stay there again!

    Great Location, location, location

    from

    We spent a long, rainy weekend in Boston, camping out at the Marriott Long Wharf. A terrific location with friendly, helpful service. We took the water taxi from the airport directly to the hotel. The "T" (Boston's subway) was a block away, making travels around the city easy. The aquarium is a block away, Fauneil Hall three blocks, the North End (the Italian neighborhood) about 5 blocks. We used the T for the Public Gardens, Fenway, Harvard, Boston College and the JFK library and all within a quick walk. Must admit -- we like to walk and we don't mind old subway systems. We always felt safe and the concierge at the Marriott was always willing to provide easy instructions. Want great seafood? -- try Skipjacks across from Trinity Church. Not cheap but the finest preparation of fish I've ever had! Boston and this Marriott location are great even in the rain!

    Great Hotel, Fantastic Location!

    from

    I just read a pretty comprehensive review of this hotel by someone that was there in March, and I just had to echo those sentiments. We were at the Long Wharf for 7 nights in mid-April 2003 and we thought it was a great hotel. The service was wonderful, the rooms much nicer than average, the breakfast buffet every bit as good as described and the location is unbeatable. I wanted to add that, in addition to the New England Aquarium, the Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, the Old Town Trolley is located practically outside the front door of this hotel, and for $25.00 you can ride all over the city all day long. There are 16 stops, the tour guides are very knowledgeable, and you can get off at any of the stops at any time and get back on at any time (trolleys come by about every 15-20 minutes). It was a fantastic tour and a great way to get to any part of town without walking, driving, or hailing a cab. The subway trains are also another great and inexpensive way to get from here to there, just $1.00 each way. Also included in the price of the trolley tour is either a multimedia presentation at the Bunker Hill museum or a Boston Harbor Cruise. Highly recommended! The Marriott Custom House is also right up the street and a great low-key, clean, comfortable & historic place to get a drink. This hotel truly is within walking distance to almost everything and anything that's a little further is easy to get to by trolley, train or taxi. Additionally, the hotel is only a few miles from Logan Airport, but we heard no noise (due in part to the famously abrupt takeoffs and landings required at Logan). A+!

    Excellent Stay, Location at Long Wharf

    from

    We (family of four, children 16 and 9) had an excellent stay at Long Wharf in March 2003 weekend. We wanted to stay in Boston so as to be able to walk to places and this hotel sure fit this bill. We were just steps away from the Aquarium and a few blocks away from Quincy Market. An unexpected bonus was being only a 10 minute walk away from North End (Little Italy) and we walked there one night and that was very enjoyable--a very bustling, energized neighborhood with restaurants galore. We didn't have a formal meal, but snacked on some pasta, pizza and gelato which were excellent. I am told that anyplace you go there is very good. Hotel is also a short walk to the T to get to other Boston destinations and is also in walking distance of the financial district which has many modestly priced eateries (wrap places) during the week (but which were closed on weekend). As for the hotel itself--we found it to be very lovely and classy (but not snooty) and the staff exceptionally helpful and pleasant, without exception. We had a weekend AAA rate at $155 which was very much worth it. Parking was steep ($32) but also worth it, it is valet parking, unlimited in and out (in case you do have to go somewhere) and secure. (There is a public garage a block away which is probably cheaper by a little). The beds were uncommionly comfortable and they provide a very decent rollaway for no charge. The food: the breakfast buffet was terrific. It was $15 for adults, $6 for kids (also available in packages) and was realy, really good. Highlights were malt waffles, cheese blintzes, a small tray of lox (but always refilled), real OJ, thick strawberry sauce for waffles and blintzes--don't laugh, it was that good!!-- full array of other breakfast items. (They also ahd a Sunday brunch which we didn't try). The buffet was well worth the price. The restaurant itself is very nice overlooking the harbor, and the club lounge (adjacent) is very nicely decorated in a ship motif. We had a light meal there one evening which wasn't bad (but not great), but if we had more energy we would have gone (back) to Quincy Market for dinner. (Yes, even though it is a short walk, our kids were THAT pooped!!) That's another advantage of the hotel--you are close enough to Quincy Market, etc. so that you can get reasonably priced food and are not stuck with high priced restaurant. (Regina Pizza at Quincy is excellent). Plus, there's a 7-11 a block away. They have a great health club--separate rooms for weights and aerobics, which is free. And a very nice pool. Not large for swimming, which is fine, but great for hanging out with the kids and the water happened to be quite warm (88) which is even finer. I reiterate that every satff member was polite, friendly and helpful--from when we drove in, bell staff, desk staff, restaurant staff, concierge--everyone! That makes a difference. A very excellent stay on all fronts. Being able to walk really made it an enjoyable experience and the hotel was excellent all around. Will definitely return and heartily recommend.

    HUGE hotel

    from

    We had a great stay, and as advertised, the views were fabulous from the hotel room. The room itself was impeccable. We were surprised, however, at the noise generated from the open lobby. I'm not so sure it's a great idea.

    Brilliant Accommodation

    from

    An absolutely fabulous hotel with super views no matter what side you are on. Fantastic service and close to all the attractions of downtown boston... boat tours to USS Constitution just a few yards from the front door.... highly reccomended
