I could not have dreamed of a better venue.
It’s impossible to capture in a single review just how outstanding our wedding experience was at Boston Harbor Hotel. Michael Boivin and his catering team exceeded expectations over and over and over again, and I could not be more grateful for their hard work, efficiency, and talent. They made us feel like our wedding day was the most important event of the year and that energy translated into one giant, happy celebration!
Following our church ceremony, we had cocktail hour along the Harborwalk, a reception in the Wharf Room until midnight, and ended with Karaoke after party in the Foster’s room. The venue location speaks for itself – the views of the harbor are breathtaking – but it is the service and delicious food that really make this venue “beyond compare.” Countless guests have told me that it was the most delicious wedding food that they ever had (people were losing it over the fried scallops at cocktail hour) and everyone’s drinks remained full throughout the night. The staff met all of the needs of our 209 guests, including those that had very specific dietary restrictions or allergies. They also worked with us to make special requests possible – like two flavored wedding cake and cava instead of champagne.
Michael Boivin is a host in himself. We did not have a wedding planner, which made him the most critical contact of our entire planning process. This was the first wedding for both our families, so we appreciated his expertise and honest opinion throughout. He recommended countless vendors that had successfully worked at BHH before, responded to email instantly, and kept everything running on schedule on the big day. From our initial walkthrough to the tasting to the wedding day, he made sure all our questions were answered and our needs were met. An absolute delight to work with.
Thank you to Michael and the entire BHH team for the perfect wedding!! I could not have dreamed it better.

Dreams Do Come True
Can't say enough about my daughters wedding at the Boston Harbor Hotel. Ted Daniels and his team made it a night we will never forget.Every request we made was delivered. The food was absolutely delicious everything was hot and served exactly as specified. Ted's recommendations turned out to be the highlights of the night. The New England station during the cocktail reception and the ice cream station for dessert were huge hits that our guests are still talking about. Service was outstanding led by the room captain Daniel, it was the best I have ever experienced anywhere.Sent on 10/24/2019
We heard over and over again how the service was impeccable . The entire team catered to our guests every wish and request. Georgia who handled our room block was outstanding and went over and above to make our guests happy. The team at valet as well as concierge and housekeeping were all fantastic. We felt like VIPS for the entire weekend . We wish we could do it all again!!! It was a night we will never forget.

My husband and I got married at the Boston Harbor Hotel this past June and it was the most magical weekend of our lives! We hosted our rehearsal dinner, welcome cocktails, ceremony & reception and brunch at the hotel. All of our guests were from out of town and we wanted to ensure that everything was taken care of for the entire weekend. The Boston Harbor Hotel was the most perfect venue for our wedding, from the guest accommodations and event venues to the staff and food (oh yeah and THE VIEW!!! ☺ ) To say I was a nervous bride is an understatement but Michael and his team was so easy to work with, they could not have put me more at ease.Sent on 09/10/2018
The different event venues offered at BHH are unparalleled, each with their own unique style and view of the Boston Harbor. We hosted our ceremony and reception in the Wharf room, which meant that the staff had to flip the entire room during our one-hour cocktail party. I continue to hear from guests about how impressed they were with the absolutely FLAWLESS transitions from one location to the other.
The food at BHH was also top notch. Since we had so many events at the hotel, we literally went though every item on the menu. Michael and his team set up a private area for my husband and I to take a break after the ceremony and try all of appetizers our guests were having at the cocktail party. I was always told that on your wedding day you won’t be able to eat any of the food, this was not true at all! The food was so good that I ended up trying a little bit of everything. We had steak and lobster for our wedding dinner, which was perfectly cooked for all of our 180 + guests and I continue to receive praises from guests about the Peking duck carving station at our rehearsal dinner.
We are looking forward to returning to BHH for our anniversary!
