    Great location with spacious rooms

    Our stay was just for 1 night. The staff were helpful when we checked in and the room was spacious and clean. For the same price most other places we have stayed have not been as good as the Harborside, mainly in respect of the space in the room and the location. The bed was very comfortable and we both got a good night's sleep. My only request would be for some black out curtains rather than the blinds over the windows onto the internal atrium as quite a lot of light got through the blind.

    The Harborside is a really good place, I've stayed many times before, but this time the staff at reception were not very helpful at check in. They could not find the info. on my booking for 3 nights though Expedia. Unfortunately I could not make the first night because of travel problems but my son phoned to give this message. EventuallyI was given a rhombus was made to feel it was all my fault!

  • 6.0.Good

    It was ok. The room had very little natural light. The lights were not as standard I.e. dimly lit. Bed was comfortable. Bathroom was modern. But the floor in the shower was old and worn. The hairdryer was burned out and didn’t work. Had to ask for that to be replaced. Which it was done that day. Would have been good to have the basic tea, coffee, kettle. But nothing like those extras are included. Toiletries are in the bathroom. The air conditioning is noisy. I switched it off at night. The empty fridge was noisy too. Luckily the weather was good so I didn’t spend a lot of time in the room.

    One to avoid!

    One of the worst hotel rooms I've ever stayed in dark and dingy with no windows! Definitely not the room I had viewed on it was expensive but provided no comforts they didnt even change the plastic cups in bathroom! No complimentary breakfast or coffee available and a poor Starbucks on site. I would recommend the 2nd hotel we stayed at in Boston, The Verb is fabulous much better choice with complimentary breakfast and water with nice pool to chill round. I wouldn't stay in Harborside again even if it was free !
