"Quiet boutique hotel with a great location."
The location of the hotel was ideal for my husband and I to walk everywhere, including all the great Italian restaurants, cafes and bakery's while still being centrally located to all the sites. The feel upon arriving was just a little confusing with check in being in one building and our room being across the cul-de-sac. The harbor view room was clean […] and decorated nicely. Two minor complaints, there were no ice machine located on our floor (call the front desk/housekeeping) and WiFi is $15.00 a day . Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Difficult to leave the room."
Superb room with very high end decor and furniture. Loved the bathroom with the speakers that sync to the TV or your iPod. The only thing missing is a pool for this to be one of the top hotels in all of Boston.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great view on the water - beautiful hotel"
They did a great job! Very nice place right on the water.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to the water"
This was a nice hotel in a good location. We were able to walk many places, easily found the subway, and used the trolley. There was no need for a car while we were in Boston. The proximity to the North End was beneficial as there was an outdoor festival going on at the same time. THe hotel was quiet, the security was good. The room was very comfortable […] and the service was great. The breakfast was hot and varied. I would recommend this hotel to other travelers. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel with superb location"
Great location, great staff, great room. We were very pleased with the Fairmont in all ways.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel for couples or business."
I thought the staff was very helpful and accomodating to anything we asked. I thought the room was great and kept clean. Right in the Italian district and was a great time. Would recommend to any couple visiting Boston.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Wonderful location in Italian North End"
Had a great time! Friendly and helpful hotel staff.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Best hotel in Boston"
This is by far the best hotel that I've been at in my travels. I have stayed in hotels all over the world and my treatment at Fairmont was exceptional. The staff at the hotel was very helpful and curteous. When we arrived, our room wasn't available yet, but the staff quickly upgraded us to a "Junior Suite" (very nice). They offer complimentary gourmet […] breakfast, H'orderves and deserts. We are talking about gourmet hams, eggs, juices etc...for breakfast, gourmet hams and salami, oysters on the half shell one day etc., and cheescake, cookies etc.. for desserts. Their sodas and waters are free when you get them in the lobby. Their rooms were clean and contemporary. We are on the bay but close to "Little Italy" on the North End. This area is preferred to the "Back Bay" due to its more peaceful surroundings. It was always relaxing sitting on the bench overlooking the Charles river. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely come back. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Fun time in Boston"
The hotel was in the best location for touring, eating, people watching, catching a water taxi. We will stay there again when we go back to Boston. The people were friendly. It was our first experience with a Fairmont hotel, we usually stay at Marriott or Kimpton hotels, I will try them in other cities after this. The exhale spa is such a nice perk. […] I used it for a massage one day and went back and did a yoga class and facial. The only complaint that I have is that the doors in building four are very loud (if you like to sleep in) and they don't close all the way unless you pull them shut. Otherwise a perfect visit.

Nice jr suite, TV, music and bed. Included breakfast was a plus with some good choices. The only frustration was getting a cab hailed when in a hurry. That part of the service needs help. Most hotels have cabs standing by, this was never the case over a 5 day stay. Most mornings I was unsure whether I'd get the cab on time. Finally solved the problem […] by using Uber Cab (iphone app). You might consider using it for your guests Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"great north end hotel"
great hotel- wonderful view of harbour. Front desk staff were very helpful arranging for dinner reservations at a good restaurant in the North End, I wish they had a pool.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Luxury on the waterfront"
Great location on the wharf, but pricey for what you get. Ask for a high floor.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful Harbor View location"
We loved our stay at the Fairmont Battery Wharf Boston. Enjoyed the sights and sounds (i.e. Odyssey dinner cruise, Freedom Trail, Blue Man group, Improv Assylum, Fiore's, Mike's Pastry Shop, etc.). All were within walking distance (15 to 20 minute walk). Needed the exercise after all the fine dinning. The hotel had great food both for breakfast and […] appetizer hour. We were out late so never got to try the desserts offered later in the evening. Definitely plan to visit Boston again and the Fairmont Hotel. The deal with Hotel.com was really great. The hotel personnel were really helpful and knowledgeable about local things to do, places to eat and other details. Overall, had a great trip and experience and hope to do it with the kids next time. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Luxureous and modern hotel. Well worth the price. I wish there were more stores and resteraunts closer to the hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
Great staff. Friendly and always helpful. Superb location and excellent building, rooms, etc.Genuine Expedia guest review
Not close enough to the "T" The staff was excellent. We took the breakfast option which was excellent including snacks in the eveningGenuine Expedia guest review
I booked the hotel for family for a graduation. It's a very beautifully decorated hotel right on the boston harbor. our rooms had great views. Staff was attentive and not snooty. I didn't eat a meal but one of my family members did and loved it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This was a new, very clean hotel with great bathrooms, in the north end, very near the Paul Revere house and the Historic Trail. The Italian food on the North End is amazing!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great value for the money."
I thought the location, cleanliness and customer service were outstanding. It truly was a deal. Room should have been double the price...Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I am a fan of the Fairmont brand but was extremely disappointed with the cleanliness of my room at the Battery Wharf location. We had to call housekeeping three times during our overnight stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Memorial Day Weekend in Boston"
I was a little disappointment when they put us in a handicap room without a bathtub. With the high rate that we are paying per night; they offer no complimentary breakfast to their guest. It was a pleasing stay, but with that rate I rather stay at the Sheraton or Lenox Hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
Exceptional service generally and the quality of room service in particular was outstanding. The hotel makes DVDs available to President's Club guests and it would have been nice to have more family-friendly options. But that's just a mild suggestion. We had a great stay and were very impressed.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Five minute walk to Fanuill Hall, Quincy Market and the north end!! Beautiful Hotel and location was perfect! Worth the price which was nothing at all compared to what a great stay we had. If you can, enjoy the spa, Exhale, made our trip absolutely fantastic!! Our room was not ready when we checked in so they ended up offering us an upgrade for half […] the price which included concierge and free breakfast plus other great amenities in the Gold Jr. Suites. When visiting Boston, stay here!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Beautiful hotel, wonderful staff! The room was very nice including the evening turndown service. Hotel was within walking distance of things to do. Only downside, you can only valet park and it was a bit pricey.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Recommend to Everyone!"
After paying for the hotel not knowing what it would be (one of those deals from Expedia!) we were pleasantly surprised with the location and we got an upgrade from a two-double bed room to a nicer room with a large bed. Staff is really friendly, room was perfect! In a great historical area, it was close to our favorite restaurant.Genuine Expedia guest review
"I'd stay again in a flash."
A great location and a wonderful hotel. Close to the North end (2 minute walk), a great harbor view, and all in all a wonderfull spot to stay. The only problem was a cabbie who managed to charge 36 dollars from Logan.Genuine Expedia guest review
"great place for travel"
very good view and great location! close to quincy market and bunch of delicious food : )Genuine Expedia guest review
Take a $10/person water taxi from the airport. Stroll down Hanover through the north end for great pasta or to the Union St Oysters. Close to the Aquarium, Freedom trail, trolley tours. Friendly staff! Great stay!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Stayed there while taking son to Boston Children's Hospital, and the hotel staff was very accommodating for special needs due to his leg injury. Beautiful hotel. First-class espresso maker in the room was also a nice little plus since I'm a coffee drinker. And quite a shower and bathroom; very modern fixtures, 'rain' shower. Room was very quiet and […] peaceful even though hotel is in downtown Boston; no traffic or street noise since hotel is on private street and sets on a section that extends out into the bay. Nice to look out on the water. Security also seemed to be high. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Great, except that the spa charged an extra $$$.00 to our room which we did not catch until we arrived home. upon calling the hotel, they promptly credited our card after checking with the spa.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Our new favorite hotel in Boston!!"
Didn't really know what to expect, but we wanted to stay near the North End and saw "most" of the reviews were very positive. We had a great experience. Stayed in the "Gold" building, thanks to the available upgrade. Well worth it for more personal service, afternoon wine and very nice appetizers, and exceptional breakfast buffet. Room was spacious […] and well furnished. Staff outstanding. We will return!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"North End treat"
Arrived at check in time. The gentlemen at the front desk told us our room would not be ready for 30 minutes. He was very matter of fact and not too apologetic. I think someone may have overheard this dialogue and we were soon offered a room upgrade. After that it was smooth sailing. Everything was great. Room upgrade was excellent. Based on our overall […] experience we would return. Great location near the North End restaurants. Nice Bar. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Hotel was very very nice. The beds were so comfortable...only thing is its a little pricey for just one night!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
beautiful room, very comfortable and classy - only an overnight stay but we loved the space and decorGenuine Expedia guest review
Nice Staff, large comfortable quiet room, perfect locationGenuine Expedia guest review
I have to spend the night in Boston 2x a year for a layover. Checked out this hotel on tripadvisor thought it looked good. I love being in the North End. I was not impressed by the quality of the rooms. I was given one room, but then needed to switch. The bathrooms are not very private. The first room had pocket doors at the bathroom which did not close […] completely, the second had one big bathroom with no cubicles ( please do not have a toilet without walls around it). Also the shower had no door or curtain. Did not feel like a luxury hotel, but like a Comfort Inn. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great location, fails as a Fairmont."
My wife and I went to the Fairmont Battery Wharf to celebrate New Years Eve. I picked this hotel for the location: North End, great restaurants, business district, and Back Bay shopping. I have stayed in 3 other Fairmont hotels and I wanted quality service and staff, and a luxurious room. Before going to Boston, I went to Maine to do work on my 77 year […] old mother's house for a week. I therefore brought my older pickup truck. When I arrived at the Fairmont, the valet repeatedly asked me to use a local parking garage instead of using the hotel's valet service. On my insistence, the valet finally agreed to do his job. The rooms were so poorly constructed that anytime a guest closed their door, the walls and our door shook. This occurred throughout the night. There is very poor sound insulation between rooms, so I had the pleasure of listening to all that entails, including the apparent chest cold of the woman next door. (I went for NY eve celebrations, so I was not looking for silence, returning to the room sometime after 2 a.m.) I brought the valet and noise issues to the attention of the front desk who replied, "Yes, we have gotten a lot of those complaints." I have stayed in cheap motels that left the light on for me which had better staff. I cannot recommend this Fairmont to anybody. The hotel also only has one dining option. Major disappointment. Hospitality staff was very good. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
good location if looking to be in Boston, especially near the North End. Great rooms very quiet, nice beds. open windows a plus.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
First rate accomodations, new modern hotel, friendly (for Boston) service, extremely comfortable bed, Excellent coffee in the room, superb cuisine, the only negative is that the towels could have been better.Genuine Expedia guest review

Would not recommend there are other places around the area which are much nicer for the same price.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Just make sure u keep a map of the hotel"
Overall was ok, good service, clean and modern - but just make sue u keep a map of the hotel as many taxi drivers didn't know where it was - and actualy never heard about itGenuine Hotels.com guest review
""amazing view-great staff""
Although my daughter has lived in Boston for several years we, for some reason, never tried the Fairmont at the Wharf. This will be our new hotel when visiting Boston. We were able to get a room with a beautiful water view AND breakfast in our room as a package. We were very satisfied with the service and the price. We have found the price for four […] star(and plus) hotels in Boston have become ridiculously high, and usually have small rooms and lackluster service. We ate at the hotel for dinner, as we arrived late, and found it to be excellent...I had an italian entree and my husband had the special scallops....some of the best we have had including in many fine dining establishments. This is great hotel don't overlook it! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Fairmont Batter Wharf in Boston"
Nicest hotel I've ever stayed in! And the price was right, too!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This was our first trip to Boston and we weren't sure what to expect from the hotel and neighborhood. What a pleasant surprise! The hotel is in a great location, just steps off the Freedom Trail, on the water and right in the Little Italy area. The room was perfectly lovely, with upgraded ammenities, walk-in shower and plush bedding. The staff couldn't […] have been more accomodating. We will definately return to the Fairmont on our next trip to Boston. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Fairmont battery Wharf"
Great Hotel, new and if you like the Italian section of Boston...look no further. We were upgraded to a suite and that was perfect because we had our 10 year old with us. Lots of room. The bar and restaurant were a bit pricy, but there are are so many options right around the corner. Try Mike's pastry!!! Service was very nice and the regular rooms […] looked nice. Great views and you can get a water taxi from the airport right to the hotel. Overall, great property and good value on hotels.com Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect Except . . ."
This hotel has pretty much all the perks that one could imagine EXCEPT they charge a hefty fee per day for wireless access in your hotel room. In a high end hotel in the perfect location on the harbor, why would this be so? Why would they assume that, after paying a hefty fee for the lovely room, a client would be pleased to have to go to the lobby […] to have wireless access? We simply don't get it and may entertain the thought of staying at a cheaper place with better access to wireless. Should we really have to sit on Boston Common to acquire free internet?
