Club Quarters vs Harborside Inn - Boston

Hi everyone! I'm new here but have received so much info from reading the boards. My husband and I are taking a 5 day/4 night trip to Boston in October and we have reservations as both the Club Quarters and Harborside Inn. Can I get anyones opinions on which of these two you would pick? Also, we want take a couple of day trips and was wondering if anyone had suggestions.

Thanks so much and I look forward to reading your responses.

These are two completely different places!

Harborside Inn (which is not actually harborside, there's an interstate highway in between) has a country inn feel (and service) and is nicely located only steps from Faneuil Hall/Quincy Marketplace and the waterfront.

Club Quarters is a very "business traveler" sort of place with the same sort of atmosphere. Everything is "electronic". Check in/check out, and you even have to use your room key for the elevator to operate. Front desk has very limited hours. It's also not very well located - in the financial district where nearby restaurants close early and are not open weekends, even Starbuck's! From there, it's a hike to Faneuil Hall or Copley Square or the Waterfront.

My pick would definitely be the Harborside of those two.

That's probably too late for foliage.

Our favorite places to visit near Boston are Plymouth, Salem, Newburyport, Rockport, Marblehead in MA, and Portsmouth, NH.
