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 views of the waterfront, be sure to specifically book a Harbor View room.
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 on the back side of the hotel have the best city views, especially from floors 7 - 8.
Best Rooms: For the best views of Faneuil Hall, try to get up to at least floor 7. In particular, the best rooms are 735 (which has a fireplace), 741 and 742.
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.
