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
Good location and great service. Staff are very welcoming and always ready to help! Rooms are very clean and well presented! We had breakfast at the restaurant every morning which was delicious and the service was outstanding
Excellent location, excellent rooms, restaurant ok but no need for it since you are at North End and the neighborhood is full of cozy restaurants, all of them walking distance. The only reason for low points on service is that the gym is in a building adjacent to the hotel and walking to it in the cold winter mornings is not the best experience.
I was so impressed with the Battery Wharf Hotel that I will stay there whenever I am in Boston. Everything was impeccable, from the impeccable cleanliness and amenities provided to the service of the staff. There was not one bit of dust or area in the room that was unattended to with a vacuum or a cleaning cloth. I ALWAYS check. My room was made up each day early in the day so i never returned from an appointment to an unmade bed. I was not waterside (my choice) but I imagine the view of the harbor must have been lovely. Also, since my stay was in December I was unable to enjoy the landscaping or the river walks. I will definitely return to get the whole picture. This hotel is a gem, and i recommend it to everyone!
Always stay at the Battery Wharf when we come to Boston for Bruins games. It’s a short walk to all the great restaurants in the North End and then another quick walk to and from the TD Garden. The staff is always friendly and helpful and the rooms are wonderful with great views of Boston Harbor.
I did book hotel through a 3rd party. When we arrived I asked if we could have a room with a view. It was a Sunday night. I was told no, they were booked. When we came back later to check in, I asked again. Jay was very responsive and gave us a room with a limited water view. The carpet had a huge stain which was set in. It could not have been overlooked by maid service.(animal?) We usually stay at Boston Harbor Hotel, a true 5 Star hotel. We will not be staying at Battery Wharf again.
