Fodor's Expert Review Custom House Tower

Downtown Boston Notable Building
One of Boston’s most recognizable buildings, the gorgeous 1847 Custom House resembles a Greek Revival temple and features an iconic tower that was added much later, in 1915. This addition gave the building notoriety at the time as the city’s tallest. Where the skyscraper once operated as a federal building, today, Marriott owns it as a hotel and vacation club. The public is invited into the Custom House’s recently renovated 26th-floor observation deck—for unparalleled views of Downtown and Boston Harbor—on a guided tour for a small fee. Call ahead for a ticket, but you still must arrive promptly to be admitted.
