The first thing you'll notice about Fairmont Battery Wharf Hotel is its spectacular location - a prime waterfront perch overlooking the Harbor. 

The Battery Wharf offers luxurious accommodations similar to what you'll find in other Boston luxury hotels, including those on the Downtown Waterfront.

But if you stay here, you'll quickly appreciate the Battery Wharf's unique value-added bonus:

You're in Boston's famous North End neighborhood, home to some of the best Italian and seafood restaurants in the city, along several Freedom Trail sites.

You can practically smell the delectable aroma of espresso from the neighborhood's small bakery/cafes, where you can sample cannoli and other fresh-baked pastries.

The Fairmont Battery Wharf is the only hotel in this popular and picturesque neighborhood, and is the perfect place to stay if you want to experience this special historic neighborhood fully - plus be close to TD Garden, Faneuil Hall Marketplace, and the lively downtown waterfront.

More about the Fairmont Battery Wharf

Battery Wharf Boston Hotel - Boston's North End - room photoWith only 150 rooms, including 42 suites, the Battery Wharf Boston almost could be considered a boutique hotel, especially because of the personalized service.

As you can see from the photos on this page, many of the spacious rooms offer fascinating waterfront views and some have balconies.

In the rooms, you'll find luxury linens, flat screen TVs, iPod docking stations, and laptop-sized room safes.  You can also work out in the hotel's fitness room. 

For the ultimate luxury experience, stay in the Fairmont Gold building and enjoy the complimentary breakfast, dedicated concierge services, complimentary cocktail canapés, and a dessert buffet.
