Fodor's Review

Boston has plenty of iconic landmarks—the "salt and pepper" bridge, Fenway Park, the Public Garden ducklings—but none are as synonymous with über-hospitality as the Boston Harbor Hotel, with its 80-foot-tall outdoor archway and rotunda and classic city and harbor views. The splurge-worthiness continues inside, thanks to smaller marble arches, framed antique maps, and an ample placement of fresh flowers. Marble bathrooms, custom-made desks, Frette linens, flat-panel TVs, and laptop-size safes give the guest rooms a leg up on other city lodgings. And amenities abound—there are even complimentary daily shoe shines. The hotel's older, well-heeled clientele has been coming here for ages. The excellent on-site restaurant, Meritage Restaurant + Wine Bar, offers some of the city's best views of Boston Harbor and a unique Vineyard to Table concept, and a menu that pairs dishes with appropriate vintages. Eat up and worry about working it off later—the health club will lend you athletic gear if you forget yours.
