Check In: Boston Harbor Hotel at Rowes Wharf

Rowes Wharf Bar at the Boston Harbor Hotel has one of the most extensive scotch menus in the city. Categorized by Scottish geography, the menu (or a bartender) can help you to differentiate between the flavors and distilling processes. Address: 70 Rowes Wharf, Boston

There’s something quintessentially Bostonian about this 230-room hotel situated directly on the waterfront. Perhaps it is the elegant marble lobby with crystal chandeliers, the attentive staff, or the spacious rooms decorated with comfortable armchairs, polished wood desks, and smooth Frette linens on double and king-size beds. Whatever the reason, it’s a terrific place to stay.

The hotel offers two dining experiences that showcase the talents of chef Daniel Bruce. For casual fine dining, indoors or out, the Rowes Wharf Sea Grille features simply prepared and locally sourced seafood, shellfish, meats, and salads. Or try the artful creations in its upscale sibling, Meritage. A spa and fitness center — with 60-foot lap pool — offers pampering and exercise opportunities.


Enjoy special events all winter. Commuter boats, ferries, and water taxi airport service are just outside the door, and Amtrak at South Station is a 10-minute walk away.

Boston Harbor Hotel  Rates from $320, 70 Rowes Wharf, 617-439-7000,
