Lovely hotel with exceptionally helpful staff (though American customer service is generally excellent anyway). You can have breakfast in your room but there isn't a specific dining area for breakfast. Two nice restaurants within the hotel and that lovely Lindt shop on the corner! You're in an expensive part of town but there are ample reasonably priced restaurants within easy walking distance and the red line T stop is a two minute walk. We stayed twice within one holiday breaking in the middle to go to New York. When we checked back in for the second part of our stay at the Lenox there was homemade cookies and milk for us in our room as a welcome back. Lovely gesture. The Flour Bakery is nearby and excellent for breakfast. Overall a great hotel.

Hotel staff was exceptional fro check-in to check-out - engaging and helpful in every respect. Room was a bit underwhelming given its cost. Location is very good with easy access to older part of the city, to the Common and Public Gardens, Beacon Hill and to shopping on Newberry and Boylston streets. All are within easy walking distance.

We only booked a city side deluxe room, as we weren’t expecting to be in it much and ended up in Room 651, which was a great spacious room. It was situated on a corner towards the back of the hotel so it was quiet and had a partial view of the harbour.
There was a sliding frosted glass divider between the bedroom and the bathroom which I can understand why some people think this isn’t very private but it didn’t bother us. It was nice to open it up while in the bath so we could watch TV! The room was spotlessly clean; the bathroom was lovely and had a huge bath, separate shower and loads of toiletries.
The best tip I can give is to join the Intercontinental Hotel Group rewards scheme, which is free and only takes a few moments to sign up to. We gave our membership number at check in and this entitled us to free Wi-Fi (instead of £14 a day each) and also gave up automatic late check out at 2pm, well worth it.
The pool and gym were great, loads of towels, water stations, iced lemon water and various complimentary toiletries in the changing rooms.
The hotel is walking distance to all the tourist sites, is smart and spotless clean and a fantastic place to stay in Boston. All the staff we met were so lovely and polite and we feel really fortunate to have booked here.

This was our second stay at The Battery Wharf Hotel. I love the location near the waterfront in Boston - I t feels like a quiet respite from the busier parts of the city, yet its downtown. Transportation may cost more - We did take more taxi's than would be necessary in other locations in Boston - For us, the ambiance is worth it. Very close to the North End. No longer owned by Fairmont - Our experience seemed the same. Pretty, comfortable rooms. Right next to the Harbor Walk.
