About this Hotel

Price From $129

'Hood In a quiet waterfront Charlestown neighborhood, right on the Harborwalk pedestrian trail and just a short stroll across the bridge from the North End, TD Garden, and Faneuil Hall Marketplace.

The Vibe Though popular with business travelers, this hotel has the feel of a leisure resort. Along with a pool, there's a pier—from which a water taxi serves the airport, Long Wharf, and other harbor destinations—plus a marina (not affiliated with the hotel) just outside.

Rooms All studio and one- or two-bedroom guest suites feature full kitchens and a standard Marriott decor, with views of Boston Harbor on one side and the Leonard P. Zakim Bunker Hill Bridge on the other.

Plus The harborside location, and amenities such as a pool, fitness room, convenience store, free full hot breakfast, full kitchens, and free newspapers.

Minus Valet parking is $32 per day (a surface lot next door charges $22, but ins and outs cost extra); luckily, this is not really a neighborhood where you need to have a car.

Free Wi-Fi? Yes.

Credit Cards Accepted Yes.

Details A studio with a queen bed and a sleeper sofa from $129; a one-bedroom suite with a queen bed and a sleeper sofa from $149; a two-bedroom suite with a queen bed and a queen-size sleeper sofa from $169. Breakfast is included.
