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.
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!

A Perfect Wedding Experience!
Having stayed at the Boston Harbor Hotel previously, my husband and I were very excited to tour this location when searching for a Boston wedding venue. We knew from prior visits that the setting is beautiful, the service is top-notch, and the food is beyond compare. Upon deciding to book the BHH for our wedding, our high expectations for this venue were well surpassed!
Our experience began with Michael Boivin, our wedding coordinator. Michael was with us from our first contact with the BHH through the wedding evening, even taking care to deliver my heirloom veil safely to our room. This small detail exemplifies the service at the BHH. Michael is well known throughout the Boston wedding industry as the best in the business! On top of everything he coordinated within the BHH, he was able to put us in contact with high-quality vendors for services including flowers, lighting, etc., which was immeasurably helpful. From the second you pull up to the hotel until the moment you leave, you are greeted by the friendly faces of employees who want you to have an amazing experience. Michael Boivin, Jennifer Lammers, Laura Furfaro, and everyone we worked with consistently went above and beyond to make our dream day a reality.
The setting of the Boston Harbor Hotel is a truly unique one. The backdrop of the harbor is beautiful, and our guests enjoyed watching planes, boats, sunrises and passers-by throughout their stay at the hotel. The central location makes it easy to visit other Boston attractions, catch a game at the Garden, or eat at one of Boston’s famed restaurants.
For a fantastic meal, however, you need go no further than the BHH itself. We wanted our wedding guests to have a delicious meal at our wedding. Months later, we are still hearing from friends and family that this was not only the best wedding meal they have eaten, but one of the best meals they've ever had in general! The wedding menus are filled with so many mouth-watering options that it was difficult to choose just a few for our menu! We were pleased to find flexibility in the menu options as well – unlike other venues we had toured.
From the service to the ambiance to the food, we could not be happier with our choice to host our wedding at the Boston Harbor Hotel. The motto of the BHH is “Beyond Compare,” and throughout our wedding process – from initially reaching out to Michael, until we checked out as newlyweds – our dreams for a perfect experience were exceeded. We are so grateful to everyone who helped us throughout the process, and are looking forward to visiting again soon!

Our wedding was tiny, compared to the grand events this hotel usually hosts, but every single staff person at the Boston Harbor Hotel provided outstanding service, treating us as if our wedding was their number one priority and we were distinguished guests.
Our wedding coordinator, Ted, and his assistant José each surpassed excellence in the care and attention they provided us on the day of our wedding. They were enthusiastic, cheerful, calm and extraordinarily helpful to us, making our ceremony a beautiful, intimate event. Our servers were polished, attentive and just absolutely lovely. Not one person's glass ever reached half-empty. They were kind and a true pleasure to have at the event.
On the day prior, of, and after the wedding, we were in awe of the deft work and friendliness of the every one of the doormen, valets and attendants who transported plants and decorations for us after a mishap with the florist. There was a miscommunication with our florist (who had left for vacation) and not all of the flowers and plants were delivered; I was frantic but, because of their expertise in these matters, Ted and José saved the day. We couldn't have been surrounded by a better team of people on our wedding day. Our wedding party stayed at the hotel for our wedding weekend. Everyone raved about every aspect--from food to service, to amenities, during the entire stay. Staff even found a beloved necklace our daughter had lost. If I could give them 10 stars, I would.
