Beautiful setting, TERRIBLE food

We went to this restaurant for a birthday celebration on a beautiful evening. The view of the harbor was spectacular, but the meal was truly terrible. First, I was served a bottle of luke warm beer and given a just-washed wet glass. The entree of fresh-fish-of-the-day (grouper) was very dry, the vegetables were virtually inedible, and we had to ask for rolls to go with our dinner. Would not recommend eating here even though the outdoor setting was so pleasant.

Overall, we really liked the Boston Harbor Hotel. It is apointed well, with all of the amenities. It is pricey, especially room service, but usually, you get what you pay for!!

Location! Location! Location!

You certainly can't beat the location. The Rowe's Wharf Sea Grill is one of Boston's only waterfront locations. Be Sure to check out Live Soul Music every Tuesday night this summer, Timeless Tunes on Wednesday evenings, Blues night on Thursday and Hollywood Classics for Movie night on Fridays.

Fresh Seafood, Live Entertainment, Cold Beverages and a beautiful view.

One of the Best Hotel in Boston

The hotel was great! The rooms are great and the bed's are so comfortable. I would recommend the room with the view of the harbor if you can afford it.

POOR service and customer service on Jazz Thursday Nights!!!

Talk about your major cluster! We went to see the weekly Jazz performances that take place on a floating harbor raft. The hostess can't control the crowd, service is slow, and the food was cold. Music good, service horrible. No management in site.

Outstanding Concierge & Bell Service!

Celebrated Our Anniversary In The City This Time. Typically don't stay in town because of traffic and prices. A rainy day arrival met us with an outstanding Valet (Dave) who greeted us with an umbrella and took care of vehicle, luggage, etc. Front desk staff was thoroughly professional and met our every need. Harbor view room was great. Chef Concierge (Nathan Goff) made my wife and I feel like we were the only guests in the hotel. Nathan arranged a reservation and transportation (due to rain he offered the hotel car/driver) to a great North End Italian Rest. (Cantina Italiana) the first night. Nathan also assisted us with several other concerns/questions throughout our stay. Jose (chauffeur) offered his direct cell number and returned to pick us up after dinner. My wife said she felt like she had been treated like Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman (Barney's service was great in that movie) mostly atrributable to Nathan. Pampered in the spa with a massage on our anniversary afternoon before dinner. Great Svc!! The food and service at the lobby dining room was perfect. Both of us are typically critical having spent many years in the tourism industry. We could find only great things to admire and remark about at this hotel. Close proximity to Aquarium, Quincy Mkt. Fan. Hall , etc. make this location very convenient for a nice weekend get-away. A great anniversary and we will certainly return for a repeat visit.

The Best Hotel I have been in

The hotel was great! When I went to the hotel it looked okay on the outside but it's like living luxury. The rooms are great and the bed's are so comfortable. The bathrooms were clean and the showers were great. The room was calming except and the view of the Harbor was fabulous. The water and food that was in the room was quite expensive. No one would charge seventeen dollars for water in a fancy glass. Anyways I would recommend the room with the view of the harbor if you can afford it.

Promt curtious service with a great view

If any other restaurant would go out of their way to make my day I would like to see it happen. Intrigue was one of the better three meal restaurants I have encountered in a hotel. Eating nearly fifteen of my meals there while staying at the Boston Harbor Hotel allowed me a great chance to see how curtious a staff can be. The staff very quickly knew me by name and consistantly went out of their way to make my stay more pleasant. A fantastic job by the entire staff. I recommend it to anyone who likes to be well taken care of.

to boy

Luxury and can't beat views

We had two rooms connected by a small hallway both were very spacious and had sweeping views of the harbor. Very comfortable and elegant decor. Lunched on the outside patio overlooking the water, and it was very enjoyable. Downstairs bar was very low key but had excellent martini's. It is pricey so expect to pay.

worst ever

For such an unbelievably beautiful hotel, we had an ugly time. It started off with the 1 hr and 45 wait when we were told no more than an hour. The hostess gave us the worst attitude and might as well thrown our menus at us. Even though we had a great server, the food took FOREVER to come, because they try to cook for 500 ppl with a small kitchen. We actually saw our server getting yelled at by their managers for dancing (we went when there was live entertainment) which was completely unneccesary and totally set the mood for the rest of the night. The business-suit clad managers stood there and looked around like idiots the whole night and set an uncomfortable atmosphere while they pretty much watched us eat our food and drink our wine. We wont return!
