At the cross point where the sun sets over the city and boats pull up to dock for the day, you’ll find the Boston Harbor Hotel. Sprawling next to Rowes Wharf, one of the oldest in the nation, the iconic building serves as a beacon for sailors, fisherman and (of course) sea-loving travelers. The luxury hotel’s extended building spans an entire city block, thanks to its shared space with nearby office buildings, residential towers, conference facilities, small restaurants and shops. It’s all a five-minute stroll from the ever-bustling Faneuil Hall Marketplace and the famed New England Aquarium, and within easy walking distance to the Financial District and historic North End (Boston’s Little Italy). It’s also mere steps from ferries that run to great day tripping destinations such as the inner islands and Provincetown, plus whale boats and yacht rentals. The hotel sits right on the newly renovated Rose Kennedy Greenway, so you’ll have plenty of idyllic outdoor lounging space should the water views get stale after a while — though we’re sure not that’s possible.
