4 star hotel
Area: Financial District
0.43 mi from Paul Revere House
Best Rooms: The hotel is flanked by tall buildings, but if having a view is important to you, be sure to request a city view and stay away from inner-facing rooms with a view of an adjacent guest room.
Best Rooms: The hotel doesn't offer much in the way of views, but a room facing Merrimac St. will give you more to look at.
Best Rooms: Deluxe Rooms have lovely city views. You can also enjoy views of King's Chapel, King's Chapel Burying Ground and partial views of Boston Common, so be sure to get specific about what type of view you'd like from your room.
Best Rooms: Rooms facing Washington Street on floor 17 and higher have wonderful views of the city skyline and Boston Common.
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.
