The Boston Harbor Hotel has closed its doors until May due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“As concerns over COVID-19 increase, our team has arrived at the most difficult moment we have ever had to navigate since opening our doors 31 years ago,” the celebrated hotel wrote in a closure announcement on its website.

The hotel closed Saturday and its expected reopening date is May 18.

Suspending its services is the best way the hotel can support efforts to fight the pandemic, according to the statement, and the community will get through this “as long as we put the good of society before the good of ourselves.”

Hotel officials said they are “dedicated to doing everything we can to help our employees and our communities.”

The Boston Harbor Hotel recently earned AAA five-diamond status and was named among the 10 best hotels in Massachusetts in 2020 by U.S. News & World Report.

Boston’s Seaport Hotel also closed due to the pandemic, as well as Mandarin Oriental. Other Massachusetts hotels that have closed include Marriott Boston Long Wharf, Encore Boston Harbor in Everett, and Great Wolf Lodge in Fitchburg.


“There is no economic recovery without public health,” says Walsh
