A good thing got a lot better in 2016, when the luxurious, waterside Boston Harbor Hotel renovated all 230 of its guest rooms and suites. In addition to a new nautical color palette, each room now features an in-room iPad with hotel info from which guests can also adjust the AC and lighting and change the TV stations (this on top of digital wake-up calls and international radio stations). Then there are the little touches: in-room amenities like a personalized wine and cheese plate or your own private bartender. The health club and spa were also majorly upgraded and the Meritage, BHH’s in-house restaurant, now features more expansive wine offerings and a “vineyard-to-table” menu. The hotel’s location is still as enviable as ever: right on top of the Boston Harbor (duh), with immediate access to the Boston Harborwalk, many waterside restaurants and various boat cruises (which the concierge is happy to set up). But one of BHH’s unique charms is that it hosts so many events right on site, from weekly alfresco movie viewings in the summer to outdoor fires and cocoa in the winter—plus the Boston Wine Festival, held every year from January through March. You’ll be hard-pressed to leave.
