From the Charles River to the Boston Public Garden, Boston is such a pretty city that you’ll want to take it all in from a space of your own. So we’ve rounded up the best hotels with balconies, leaving you to simply sit back and admire the city at your leisure.

The Bostonian Boston

Relax on your balcony and enjoy the view over historic Faneuil Hall and Quincy Market at the Bostonian Boston hotel. Rooms come in soothing earth tones, with plush sofas and deep carpeting. Several have wood-burning fireplaces, and those without balconies have full-length windows. It’s an easy walk to the harborfront, the gold-domed State House and one of the classiest neighborhoods: Beacon Hill.

Go on – spoil yourself. Rooms at the Boston Yacht Haven Inn and Marina have linens with a high thread-count, marshmallow-soft down comforters, exposed wood beam ceilings and stylish coffee makers and generous charging stations. The penthouse, superior and deluxe king rooms have private balconies where you can relax – snacks and continental breakfasts are complimentary – while watching the boats bobbing in the harbor as the sun rises on the horizon.

The Boston Harbor Hotel

There’s a lot to be said for luxury – and the Boston Harbor Hotel says it very well indeed. Rooms are huge, and that’s putting it mildly. They run the gamut from 585sqft to 4,800sqft (54sqm to 446sqm) in the John Adams Presidential Suite, and that’s not including the brick outdoor terrace. Bathrooms gleam with Carrara marble, deep soaking tubs and rainfall showers. You’ll overlook either the waterfront or the city skyline. The best thing? The in-room Nespresso machines.

Hilton’s DoubleTree brand is all about making guests feel relaxed – even if they’re staying for business reasons. You can’t beat idling here at the rooftop bar after a busy day of back-to-back meetings, looking at the Charles River over a glass of wine. Rooms are pale, simple and spotless, and standard king rooms have private balconies, while all have generously sized workspaces. Grab a coffee from Made Market Pantry in the lobby first thing, and you’re good to go.

    Grab a seat near one of the several toasty fire pits on the outdoor terrace of the Hyatt Regency Boston Harbor for magnificent views over the city. Located on Harborside Drive, the property is every bit as serene when you step inside: the 270 guest rooms are almost meditative spaces, decorated in tranquil earth tones. The large windows are perfect places to linger and watch the comings and goings in the harbor before enjoying clam chowder in the Harborside Grill.

    The Liberty Boston

    This charming base occupies a neoclassical building that, from 1851 to 1990, was the Charles Street Jail. The decor reflects this throughout: bars on windows and mosaic tiles depicting cells and prisoners in black striped garb. Guest rooms are no hardship, though, with teak flooring, architect-designed furnishings and full-length windows overlooking Beacon Hill and the Charles River. Suites have private year-round balconies with all-encompassing views over the city.
