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
Family trip to Boston for the weekend. Hotel is centrally located in the North End area. Walking distance to sights, restaurants and shopping. Close to subway lines for traveling throughout the city. Staff is friendly and accommodating.
The room was beautiful, and they let us do a late check out, so my three year old could get a bit of a nap in before catching our ride to the Cape. Great location, walkable to the north end restaurants, and to many of the Freedom trail sites. I would definitely stay here again!
We knew nothing about this hotel, which was part of a pre cruise package. It proved to be a happy surprise. Rooms, both public and guest rooms (with the exception of the dining room), very attractive. The food in the d.r. compensated for its lack of charm. Location on the water, lovely. Personnel helpful. Only axe to grind. We did feel some sort of breakfast should have been included in our package. This should be negotiated with the cruise line.
We stayed at the Battery Wharf Hotel on either end of a Boston to Quebec City road trip. We loved our rooms. They were spacious, clean and smartly decorated. The Frette sheets on the ultra comfortable beds were a particular luxury. The service was outstanding. We were greeted by Aaron on both stays. He remembered us and greeted us with genuine warmth. His care and professionalism will bring us back. Highly recommend this hotel.
My husband & I recently returned from spending 3 days in Boston, staying at the Battery Wharf Hotel. Everything about it was wonderful. The staff was helpful, the room was large with a view of the harbor, the beds were very comfortable and we never heard any noise at all. Very spacious bathroom, too. The location was perfect. We were able to walk to the North End in less than 10 minutes. Tons of restaurants and close to the subway. Would definitely recommend this hotel.
