Travel Blogs from Boston
Late at night London time , 3:18 am but am experiencing jet lag while in Boston it is just after 10pm. So getting ready for at least a nap.
This is from the day before where received a wake up call, although not needed. There was a time when the desk clerk actually was on the phone to make sure you awoke. Now, a computer rings and no …
Up and out the door by 9.30am.
We decided to utilise the Boston Upper Deck Trolley Tours, a hop-on and off bus tour, to give us a quick understanding of Boston's key attractions. One of the stops (Charlestown Navy Yard) was only 500 metres from the Hotel so we jumped on. It was a good time to utilise the tour bus as it was fairly chilly in …
We woke up to heavy rain and it still hasn't stopped!!
We apologise for not taking a single photo today. However, we have included a photo of the greenback in honour of the strong Aussie dollar.
We had to take a taxi downtown due to the shocking rain and we took shelter in Macy’s Department store. We had a browse around and …
So the adventure begins!
Our one full day in Boston was spent doing the one thing you must do if you're in Boston - The Freedom Trail. It's a walk around the city which takes on 16 historical landmarks. Without a doubt Boston is steeped in the history of the United States of America, and that's made it a great place to start our trip. …
Kids were up at 7am. We weren't that concerned about the noise level considering our friend next door.
We enjoyed a normal breakfast – cereal and toast for a change. Then we were off to see some more of New England……but first we had to drop by Ben & Jerry’s for a tour. The staff were fantastic with the kids, …

TravelPod Member ReviewsResidence Inn by Marriott Boston Harbor on Tudor Wharf
A well planned, decorated and staffed hotel. The room is welcoming, plenty of space and provides all a weary traveller requires. Kitchenette well stocked for snacks and coffee. Restaurant food well prepared and very tasty. Breakfast more than enough choice to satisfy morning requirements. A 5 out of 5.

Historical Traveler Reviews Residence Inn by Marriott Boston Harbor on Tudor Wharf
There are many positives about this hotel.
Did not live up to reviews
We did an East Coast college tour and Boston was our last stop. This was the most expensive and the least pleasant of the hotels we stayed in (DC to Boston). Water view was over a parking lot, not really a true water view. Linens and furniture were very low end. Location was good and people were nice however. Parking is an extra charge; other Residence Inns are free. We were disappointed.
WOW, great new addition to Boston!
This hotel is such a special addition to Boston! Great views from most of the rooms and every room is actually a suite with kitchen. The free breakfast and internet access is nice however the service level is exeptional for this type of limited service hotel.
It is a Residence Inn however it has a restaurant/cafe, little bar in the lobby and room service. I usually like to stay at full-service hotels....Marriott, Hilton, Wyndham, this Residence Inn is an unexpected treat. In a little historic neighborhood close to all the tourist sights and some great restaurants out the back door, Olives, Meze, Warren Tavern etc.
Great hotel! EXCELLENT location - really a short walk to North Station on the Green line, or for ~ 1.50, take a water taxi near the Constitution to the Long Wharf/Aquarium - an absolutely beautiful ride! There is a small but pretty park nearby, and actually lots of restaurants within walking distance as well. It's very quiet, about a 2 min walk to the USS Constitution, and about 10 minute walk to the North End. Rooms were neat and clean, I agree with all other reviewers that the staff were extremely helpful and professional. You can catch a water taxi from Logan for $15 in nice weather - and call a shuttle/airport transport company (find one in the yellow pages) - my husband and I paid $10 a person. MUCH prefer this location to the Sheraton at the Pru or the Westin Copley Plaza....
My wife , son and I visit and stay in Boston frequently and this is definitely one of our favorites. The staff is always friendly and helpful , the rooms neat and clean , the beds comfortable. They have recently added a restaurant which we think is great addition as there are limited casual dining options close by. Pay lot and Valet service is available with only limited free parking.
We stayed at this hotel in October 04 and it was FABULOUS! I have nothing but great comments to make about this place. Contrary to another review, we had 3 children, ages 6, 9, and 12 and the location was perfect. A short walk to almost everything or even better, take the water ferry (something like $2.00 per person) over to Long Wharf and walk from there. Short walk or quick cab ride to North train station where you can get to anywhere from!!! The breakfast buffet was outstanding and a great way to fill up 3 boys! The room was great. The view was incredible. We looked out onto the Old North Church steeple from our bed every night. We stayed there 7 nights and had a great experience. The rooms were quiet, temperature control was great. Pool was fine...as I said, nothing but great things from us! Would definitely stay there again. Also, the staff was so so helpful and friendly. Two thumbs up!
An absolute MUST!!!! This hotel is fabulous. You will not find a friendlier staff in a 5 star/diamond hotel. I travel one week out of the month, and Marriott can be proud of this property. The service is remarkable. Always on hand and eager to answer and advise directions, restaurants, "must sees" and how to get there for the least amount of money. The hotel is only a 7 minutes walk to the subway. If you get a room with a view, you get a room with a VIEW, the inner harbor is beautiful. The security is out of this world. You have to have a room key to access the elevator. Be sure you ask for a key for each person in your room. The complimentary breakfast is nice. The only negative is the hotel doesn't offer airport shuttle, and cabs are HIGH!!! You can take the water taxi from the airport to the hotel, about $10 per person. I've been to NY, LA, San Fran, DC.....Boston has the highest cab fares of any of those cities. Before I knew the subway was only a 7 minute walk, I took a cab, it was $7....a dollar a minute. Take the bus or subway when at all possible. I will never stay anywhere else when visiting Boston.
We just returned from Boston and enjoyed our stay at this Residence Inn. We were on vacation with our two college age children and our younger son and this hotel met our requirements for two double beds with a living/kitchen area and location (near subway, Freedom Trail, USS Constitution,etc.). Its in a nice area of Charles Town and a short walk across the Charles Town bridge to North Station subway station. Its on the water, has several parks nearby, easy access to Logan (water taxi is provides a nice skyline view of Boston), a good breakfast bar (hot/cold) and an evening "snack" Monday - Thursday is included, and hotel staff is friendly and helpful. The only negative was that we were expecting two split rooms with double bed and full bath (with two college age "kids" that would have been great) but didn't know we needed to specify this in our reservation. The staff tried to accomodate us but had non of these rooms available (I'm not sure how many of these they do have). Anyway, we would recommend this for family or business just make sure you specify the room you expect.
We reserved a two bedroom suite at this facility for the amount of space that was provided along with the price. We were not staying but one night and although it is off the beaten path felt we could manage it. Overview: The location is not one for families wanting to explore Boston and its sites especially with children. The Hotel staff is INCREDIBLE. They try so hard to please, they all should be given conceirge jobs at the Four Seasons. The front desk staff is efficient, helpful, they have all the restaurant guides and are careful not to recommend something that they have not have experienced themselves. The suites are very clean but meager and small. Equipped but for a facility that is relatively new, their linens and blankets were very worn. Any request (for additional towels) was dealt with quickly and in good fashion. The indoor pool and hot tub are small but at least they exist.
Brand new Residence Inn located in Charlestown, MA
Cross the Charlestown Bridge and you are in the North End! We had cousins from South Carolina visiting and we couldn't have picked a better hotel for growing teenagers who can eat around the clock. The breakfast buffet and evening snacks helped keep expenses low and the suites were spotless. Indoor pool was a bonus. Excellent service all the way around.
I travel often for business and I highly recommend this Residence Inn for business and family travel.
