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: Views from this hotel are of the city or the water. For the best of both worlds, request a room with a combined city and water view, on floor 10 or higher. Some guest rooms are interior-facing, which means they face towards other rooms in the hotel.
Best Rooms: The west side of the building offers the best city views, from floors 8 and up.
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.
