Boston's Financial District hotels offer top convenience for business travelers seeking central downtown accommodations, but may not seem like the obvious choice if you're visiting Boston for a vacation.
However, if you will be here for the weekend when most business travelers check out, you may find excellent deals on rates, and you can't beat the location.
Bordered by Boston's Waterfront, Theatre District, Freedom Trail, and Faneuil Hall Marketplace, the Financial District gives you easy access to some of our top attractions and restaurants.
If you fly into Boston Logan Airport, getting to most of these hotels is easy assuming your bag has wheels: just hop on a water taxi to Downtown, and then walk to your hotel.
Here are our top recommended Financial District hotels, in a variety of price ranges. You'll find everything from sophisticated elegance in iconic historic buildings to sleek decor and waterfront locations.

Encased in glittering reflective glass sides, the 424-room InterContinental Hotel is one of Boston's most dazzling structures. You'll smile when you see it.
Asian-inspired luxurious decor, top-notch service, and a lovely indoor pool give you a serene and comfortable stay in Boston. Ask for a higher floor to experience sweeping views of Boston Harbor.
The InterContinental's waterfront location can't be beat: the hotel overlooks Fort Point Channel and beyond that, the Harbor on one side. On the other side, it borders the lush Rose Kennedy Greenway, putting about a 2-minute walk from the Financial District.
Walk up the Greenway to Faneuil Hall Marketplace and the Freedom Trail, explore the vibrant waterfront along Harborwalk, and enjoy dining and nightlife along nearby South Boston Waterfront.
Hyatt Centric Faneuil Hall
68 Devonshire Street, Boston's Downtown Financial District
A superb Financial District location close to Faneuil Marketplace, top visitor sites such as the historic Freedom Trail, and the Waterfront, Hyatt Centric Faneuil Market is ideally situation for both business and leisure travelers.
TD Garden is only about 8-10 minutes away on foot, plus several nearby T (subway) stations give you easy access to other parts of the city.
The 163 guestrooms and suites offer free wifi, smart TVs, bluetooth speakers, robes and slippers, and all the other amenities you'd expect in a high-end business hotel.
The hotel's onsite Bar Mercato gets high marks for its small plates and relaxed ambiance, and many other terrific restaurants are nearby.
The Langham Boston
250 Franklin Street, Boston's Financial District
An extensive 2-year, $200 million dollar renovation has left The Langham Boston more luxurious and more gorgeous than ever.
Located in an ornate Renaissance Revival building overlooking the lushly landscaped Norman Levanthal Park at Post Office Square in the heart of Boston's Financial District, the Langham offers numerous amenities for both business and leisure travelers.
To name just a few: there's a new private guests-only Club Lounge with multiple food and beverage options on the 8th floor, a dazzling indoor pool and health club, and a spectacular art collection of 268 pieces on display to gaze upon throughout the hotel.
Enjoy your favorite beverage in The Fed, the hotel's new bar styled like a 1920s cocktail lounge, and savor the Italian specialties in Grana, the onsite restaurant.
For a special visit, reserve one of the 2-floor lofts or even the Chairman's Suite, complete with a grand piano and a dining room with seating for eight.
And don't be surprised when you see the Langham Hotel Boston on all the latest "10 Best Boston Hotels" lists.
Hilton Boston Downtown/Faneuil Hall
This is not your usual Hilton, despite its Financial District location and popularity with executives who love the spacious rooms, high ceilings, and posh public spaces.
Located in a 1928 Art Deco skyscraper, the Hilton Boston Downtown/Faneuil Hall doubles as a business hotel during the week, and a favorite of savvy leisure visitors during weekends when you can sometimes find great bargains - look for packages and special deals.
Crown moldings, waterfront views from some rooms, and terrycloth robes all contribute to the upscale ambiance.
You'll also love the Hilton's quiet location just a few blocks from the Waterfront, Freedom Trail, and New England Aquarium.
Club Quarters Boston caters to business travelers who want to be right in the middle of the Financial District. Based on a "members" concept, the hotel's private entry is restricted to guests only.
Although you can often find low budget rates at Club Quarters, especially on weekends, the compact rooms offer lots of nice amenities and luxury touches you normally find at much more expensive hotels.
The drawback? The relatively (for Boston) cheap hotel rates here are not exactly a secret...so book as far in advance as possible.
More Hotels in Boston's Financial District
Located just steps from the Financial District, luxurious Boston Harbor Hotel overlooks the waterfront, giving you convenience as well as fabulous views.
You'll enjoy personalized service plus the hotel's lively waterfront bar and other activities, especially if you happen to stay during the 3+ months of Summer in the City, when events take place almost every night from Memorial Day to Labor Day.
The boutique Hotel AKA Boston Common is renowned for its friendly and helpful staff.
The top Downtown location at the edge of the Financial district positions you between Boston Common and Faneuil Market - an ideal location for sightseeing, exploring the historic heart of the city, and shopping.
Beacon Hill, TD Garden, the Theatre District, and the Financial District are all within a short walk.
Located at the edge of the Financial District and only a block from the Waterfront, the Harborside Inn is one of Boston's often-overlooked bargain hotels.
With only 98 rooms, this is truly an inn - no onsite restaurant, no swimming pool, or other big-hotel type amenities.
However, you will find a flat panel TV, CD/DVD player, and complementary WiFi in your room. You'll get discounted passes to a health club with an indoor pool just a couple of blocks away. The area around the hotel overflows with a huge variety of places to eat and drink.
From its location between the Financial District and the downtown waterfront, Marriott Vacation Club Pulse at Custom House offers an unbeatable location and stunning views.
The club's 1-bedroom suites with fully-equipped kitchenettes fill one of Boston's most storied historic buildings, the 26-floor Custom House Tower.
Accommodations feature charming but comfortable furnishings including Chinese-inspired blue and white ceramic lamps that give a nod to the time when Custom House officials counted whaling ships returning with treasures from the Far East.
Because the Marriott Custom House is a time-share resort, only a limited number of units are available for rent on most days - so if you want to stay here, book as early as possible and have a second choice in mind in case nothing is available.
