With rates that are considerably lower than most Waterfront hotels—as low as $119 in the off season— this hotel with an understated charm is an exceptional value. Unlike its hip sister property The Charlesmark, the Harborside is anchored throughout by a modern maritime theme that includes a generous use of teak and classic maps of the Boston waterfront. Many of the snug rooms have windows overlooking an interior atrium, which extends eight stories up to the roof. Some rooms and common spaces have exposed brick. Amenities include flat-screen TVs, surround-sound stereo, and complimentary Wi-Fi. Faneuil Hall, Quincy Market, and the North End are all short walks away. For a great view, request a room overlooking the city; for a quieter stay, book a room that faces the interior atrium.
