Best Rooms: The Harbor Suites may be a bit steeper in price but are surrounded on three sides by views of the Boston Harbor. The Sara Josephina Hale Building has rooms with better views of the harbor, but keep in mind that the rooms in this building are reserved for those who book Fairmont Gold rooms.
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.
