Opened in December 2008, the Battery Wharf Hotel is a swank addition to Boston’s HarborWalk, a series of interconnected paths lined with benches, viewing points and small parks along the waterfront. The 150 guestrooms start at a generous 380 square feet and feature a cream palette and mod cons such as 42-inch flat-screen LCD TVs, Nespresso machines and iPod docking stations. Views from rooms vary between a U.S. Coast Guard station, the harbor and the hotel courtyard, but a pillow concierge, white European bedding and down duvets ensure a restful night’s sleep. The bathrooms offer Antica Farmacista toiletries and robes, and slippers are available on request. Carve out an afternoon at the award-winning Exhale spa before heading to Aragosta Bar and Bistro for New England classics with a Mediterranean twist (think hand-cut potato gnocchi with bianco garlic and cheese sausage, heirloom baby tomatoes, grilled artichokes and spinach).
In the Area
Stroll over to the North End, Boston’s Little Italy, to visit the landmark-turned-museum of Paul Revere’s House. Then stop into homey Assaggio for Boston-style classics, from veal parm to chicken marsala. Or try something new at Taranta, where a Peruvian chef uses South American ingredients in Italian standards (think cassava gnocchi). Continue on to Faneuil Hall Marketplace for shopping and multilevel bars, such as Ned Devine’s. On Fridays and Saturdays don’t miss browsing the Haymarket, an open-air produce market that’s been a city tradition since the 19th century.
How to Get There
Kudos to the Battery Wharf hotel and especially Myron at the front desk. He was very helpful and extremely professional when dealing with the volumes of clients due to marathon weekend. The rooms are clean and service staff was very attentive. We loved the location- so close to the Italian section of town, bakeries, the markets and the metro. I would absolutely stay here again!
Great hotel, wonderful staff. This hotel is in a beautiful location - walking distance to the North End and Faneuil Hall. Highly recommend this. Beautiful furnishings, comfortable bed, and attentive staff
Quiet location, beautiful view, professional staff. Very nice place to stay away from the city but very close to everything. We had unexpected stay after a family member was admitted to Mass General and we were close by and very satisfied with location, room and service even checking in at 3am. Loved it.
Having flown in and out of Boston five times over the last three years to visit our daughter and son-in-law in Connecticut, we decided that it was about time to spend a couple of days in Boston. The hotel was recommended by my daughter who had stayed there previously. We originally booked a queen room but on arrival we discovered we had been upgraded to a suite. This was unexpected but absolutely fabulous with every convenience we could ask for. The huge, extremely comfortable and massive bed was particularly welcome after a long flight and I had the best night's sleep I have ever had in a hotel. The staff on reception were excellent and responded to all our queries including supplying us with a charger for our phones. The hotel is ideally placed for exploring Boston and we were able to walk to restaurants and places of interest. I would not hesitate to recommend the Battery Wharf Hotel to anyone visiting Boston. One tip - rather than getting a cab from the airport, take the free shuttle bus to South Station and take a cab from there. It's only ten dollars!
A very nice property with great service. It is located within walking distance of some nice Italian restaurants and local attractions. The hotel has space for smaller meetings and these are spread among several buildings The views of the harbor are very pleasant.
