Best of Boston

2002 BEST Hotel, General Excellence

The Boston Harbor Hotel

This 230-room palace has bragging rights locked up, thanks to its flawless waterfront view from Rowes Wharf. The whole scene—billowing sails, bright blue slices of sky and harbor, and a breathtaking panorama of the cityscape—is straight out of a postcard fantasy (and will even make you forget the chaos of Big Dig construction out front). The interior views aren’t too shabby, either: luxuries including a plush spa, gracious suites, experienced concierges, and a terrific restaurant.
