We arrived in Boston on the all-nighter. It was 8am when we arrived at the hotel, and there was no way I expected our room to be available. The room was ready, but when the desk clerk saw we were a family of four, she upgraded us to a suite at no additional charge.
We loved our room. It was a two-room suite, with plenty of space. The furniture was all very traditional. However, what we all loved most was the view. Our room looked across the harbor to Boston's Logan Airport. We could watch jets land and take off all day. In front of us was the harbor, with lots of water traffic. We even got to see Old Ironside one day from our room. Below us were parked yachts and even a tall ship from Denmark. I could have just sat at the window and watched the harbor all day long.
The hotel focuses on details. The turndown service also included the laying out of your robes and the placement of slippers on the side of your bed. However the biggest treat came the moment we returned from sightseeing. There was a knock on our door and there room service was, delivering freshly baked cookies and cold milk for the kids. It was not requested, and it was a treat that came at the exact perfect moment. The Boston Harbor seems to understand the perfect moment.
The hotel has a great location. It's walkable to The Freedom Trail and is one of the few hotels right on the water. Rowes Wharf is popular in the morning, as this is where most of the commuter ferries empty office workers off for a day at the office.
We loved our stay here. The rates are not cheap, but we felt it was worth every penny. The service level here was above and beyond what was expected. There is a feel of elegance everywhere, with fresh flowers and fresh baskets of apples in all the halls. I am already looking forward to another visit--they won me over.
