When we decided to downsize our initially larger, traditional wedding to a 10 guest affair (thanks to covid-19) it was important to us that we maintain a unique, classic, and a once in a lifetime atmosphere. And we could not imagine a better experience than the one we had at the the presidential suite at the Boston Harbor Hotel! Every aspect of our experience, from the planning process through the entire event, was absolutely perfect. The catering manager, Ted, made booking and planning a breeze. He helped guide decisions from food to room arrangements, which took all the stress out of the wedding planning process and allowed us to just sit back and enjoy (something we very much appreciated after such a stressful un-planning process of the first, larger wedding). Once we checked in, the staff were incredibly attentive, kind, and anticipated/created details that we hadn't even imagined! They went above and beyond - even helping to decorate the space without us asking (creating an adorable bar set up with a sign that my cousin had gifted and placing additional flowers that had been leftover from the cake in display bowls around the room)! The chef and housekeeping managers regularly checked in with us throughout our stay. The food was delicious and we had multiple guests comment that it was some of the best food they have ever had (the truffle tater tots were SUCH a hit!) Between the stunning backdrop of the suite itself, the harbor views, the service that I wish I could rate more than 5 stars, and the quality of the food, we could not give a strong enough recommendation for the Boston Harbor Hotel. We only wish we could have stayed a few more nights!!
P.S. The technology set up made streaming our event so easy. We simply set up a laptop the face the aisle that was DIYed by our friends and the wifi was never an issue (and we were out on the balcony!). We also recorded the event on an ipad staged on a tripod. The bluetooth speakers throughout the suite made it easy to stream music before the ceremony and for the party after!
P.P.S. the master suite's bathroom and dressing area deserves it's own 5 star review!Sent on 10/14/2020

My husband and I hosted our "micro-wedding" at the BHH. Their service was exceptional. Ted was accommodating and responsive from our very first meeting. Andrea did an outstanding job coordinating room reservations for our guests.Sent on 09/28/2020
On the day of the wedding, you would have thought we were the only people staying at the hotel. If we needed something, it was immediately delivered to our hotel rooms. Ted coordinated with all of our vendors, so they knew where to go, when to arrive, etc. We rented a trolley and the concierge staff made sure all of our snacks and beverages made it on and off the trolley.
The food was incredible. The menu was totally customizable and putting a menu together during a pandemic is not the easiest task. Ted was there to help give us ideas. We ended up with plated appetizers, a choice of soup and salad, a choice of entrees, ice cream sandwich sliders for dessert along with red velvet cake (I am a total sweets person and the cake was absolutely delicious).
The ceremony and reception were both conducted at the hotel. The view is breathtaking, no matter what room you are in at the hotel. The staff truly helped everything flow perfectly. There was no down time and our guests are still raving about how much fun they had.
Thank you BHH for making out micro-wedding a success!

A Magnificent Venue - an exceptional events team
Mr. Ted Daniels was an exceptional Catering Manager.Sent on 09/28/2020
We owe the success of our event on September 28th at The Boston Harbor Hotel – the wedding of our son and son-in-law – largely to his creativity, knowledge, and ability to plan and execute a formal, complex event.
I’ve had the opportunity to work over the last 20+ years with many wonderful and experienced Catering Directors - for both personal and corporate events. Ted is by far the best and most capable that I have worked with.
Our wedding team – I (as the mother of one of the Grooms and the Event Planner/Manager), my son's in laws, the various outside vendors (florist, photographer, band, lighting expert, invitation company etc) greatly benefited by his ability to create, plan and execute. There was no requirement or desired outcome that could not be met.
My son and son-in-law's wedding was a dream come true. There were absolutely no issues. Many of our guests have contacted me to convey that the wedding was beautiful, wonderful and perfectly carried out. They all remarked that The Boston Harbor Hotel is a gorgeous venue.

Ted graduated from The Culinary Institute of America and has taken his experience and knowledge from the back of the house to the front of the house by creating exceptional weddings for over 30 years.
Each wedding is different as it reflects the couple’s style; be it, the time of year, set up and décor of a Ballroom, food and beverage selections, to how they end the wedding. “Don’t tell your guests about the wedding details. Let there be suspense as your guests will enjoy the wedding more and you will enjoy seeing their reactions that much more.
