Chances are high that you’ll pay a visit to Boston Harbor so why rush it in an afternoon when you can stay a while and savor the location? The Boston Harbor Hotel is a beautifully designed luxury waterfront hotel on Rowes Wharf. There’s no better way to embrace Boston’s Revolutionary roots than by reserving the John Adams Presidential Suite. But don’t worry, a lobster roll from the Rowes Wharf Sea Grille tastes just the same even if you’ve booked into one of the hotel’s entry-level superior rooms. They’re bouncily comfortable, and beautiful.

    Staying in a brownstone of your own is one of the best ways to experience Boston, which is where Oasis Guest House comes in. With its fantastic location in Back Bay, it reminds you that Boston is America’s most walkable city. There are only 31 plain, simple and brick-wall-stylish suites (across two brownstone buildings, in fact) and, as a result, the Oasis feels more intimate than the bigger, busier hotels downtown, with a delicious breakfast (eggs, pastries, bagels, croissants), to get you started each morning.
