Hotels in Boston combine the city’s colonial past with its vibrant present. Stay at a Boston waterfront hotel and enjoy luxury on the Boston Harbor, or choose a chic boutique hotel in Back Bay and be just steps from world-class shopping on Newbury Street. Boston is a walking city with all of its main historical sites connected by the Freedom Trail, so wherever you decide to stay you’ll be close to some of the city’s oldest landmarks like the Boston Common, Paul Revere House and Old North Church. We’ll help you find the best hotels in Boston so all you have to worry about is where to get the best chowder.
Best Rooms: For the best river views, the Deluxe rooms (or the Executive Suites, if you don't mind spending a few extra dollars) are your best bet.
Best Rooms: The Skyline Suite has floor-to-ceiling windows that provide incredible views of Boston's cityscape, especially if you're on a higher floor. If you don't feel like shelling out for the Skyline Suite, the Traditional Rooms with city views are a great option.
Best Rooms: River High Floor rooms are on floors 16 - 25, and offer lovely views of the river.
Best Rooms: Rooms at the front of the hotel have the best views of Newbury St., and these rooms can be booked in a variety of categories. The higher the floor, the better the view will be.
Best Rooms: For the best water views, be sure to specifically book a River View room, and keep in mind that getting up to at least floor 25 will be ideal for these views. For city views, request any even-numbered room.
Best Rooms: Located next to Berkeley St., Berkeley Residence is surrounded by equally tall buildings, so you won't find any great views.
Best Rooms: You won't find much in the way of views, because the building is only six stories high. However, rooms facing Tremont St., on floors 5 - 6, offer nicer views of the city.
