Built above a magnificent double-arch waterfront portico that straddles part of the historic Rowes Wharf Harbor, The Boston Harbor Hotel is in a league of its own. Check-in here for sumptuous accommodation, world-class dining, and a dreamy waterfront location.

There aren’t too many cities on the east coast where you can dock a yacht, throw the keys to a porter and retreat to a palatial suite for the night. Thankfully, at the Boston Harbour Hotel, you don’t have to be a yachtie to enjoy oodles of luxury and a prime waterfront location. Combining a refined, nautical ambiance with an easy elegance, the 232 rooms are furnished in beachy blues and almond beiges and all have Nespresso machines, Frette linen and marble bathrooms with rain showers and Diptyque toiletries. Views – of the marina and harbour or city – through picture windows, are sensational. The opulent Rowes Wharf Bar has one of the best whiskey menus in the city there’s surely no better place to sample catch-fresh New England seafood than in the light-flooded dining room or the sunny terrace at Rowes Wharf Sea Grille (there’s a cosy fireside lounge during the cooler months). The Boston Harbor Hotel takes good care of its younger guests, too, and as well as being close to historical attractions the hotel is well located for the New England Aquarium, the Children's Museum and Boston Trolley and Whale Watch tour departure points. Did we mention a stunning 60-foot lap pool in the health club? Oh, and if you are headed for the John Adams Presidential Suite – it’s nice to know that the 38-slip marina is there.
