Battery Wharf Hotel
One of the newer entries to Boston's luxury hotel scene, the Battery Wharf first opened in 2008 as a Fairmont property and rebranded in 2015. The wharf itself dates back to the 1600s, when it served as a gun battery positioned to defend the Colonists against water attacks; history buffs can learn more at the hotel’s own Maritime Museum.

Today the waterfront hotel offers 150 classically styled rooms, with Egyptian cotton bedding and high-tech amenities; many also feature incomparable views of the Boston Harbor. An Italian restaurant, and late-night jazz bar mean you never have to leave the hotel, but some of the city’s most bustling shopping and dining districts are just a stroll away.

Neighborhood Vibe
Located on the cusp of the North End, the hotel grants waterfront walking access to one of the most vibrant and historic neighborhoods in the city. The area is chock-full of intimate Italian restaurants and bakeries (a cannoli is a must) plus a handful of independently owned clothing boutiques. No visit to the North End is complete without a stop at Pizzeria Regina, the city’s oldest pizzeria, but the area has also seen the recent introduction of new fine-dining spots like Neptune Oyster, Ward 8, and Mare Oyster Bar. Those itching to shop can also head across the Rose Kennedy Parkway to Faneuil Hall Marketplace.
