A beautiful hotel in Boston where you can toast s’mores!

When planning a trip to Boston, stay at the Fairmont Battery Wharf!  Beautiful waterfront location, exceptional service, modern rooms and even a terrace where you can toast your own s’mores (in season)!

To celebrate our first wedding anniversary, my husband and I returned to the amazing Fairmont Battery Wharf in Boston’s North End, where we were married last year on September 24.

The hotel upgraded us to a Fairmont Gold room which was absolutely beautiful!   

Plus, we had access to the Fairmont Gold Lounge, where we enjoyed complimentary breakfast, assorted non-alcoholic beverages and an honor bar and a "Sweet Dreams" buffet featuring local desserts.

And the best part of the Fairmont Battery Wharf?  The service!  Never in our lives have we experienced such friendly service, so professional and eager to help.  The service really makes this hotel special.

We also really love the hotel’s restaurant, the Aragosta Bar and Bistro.  Incredible service here as well – everyone really made us feel special.  For dinner we split the following:

Tomato, watermelon and feta salad
Roasted PEI Mussels, Harissa Basil Brodo, Cherry Tomatoes
Linguine and Clams, Fried and Roasted Clams, Parsley, Parmesan
Veal Cutlet “Alla Milanese” Saffron Corn Risotto, Shaved Root Vegetables

For dessert, our server brought us to the restaurant’s outdoor terrace, where we ordered s’mores and then toasted them over the outdoor fire pit.  We sipped wine and snuggled and it could not have been any more romantic!

 Here's the outdoor terrace in the daylight, where folks enjoy cocktails and great cuisine!

After dessert, we enjoyed one last drink in the Battery Jazz Bar in the lobby lounge, where we listened to live jazz, which is offered on Friday and Saturday evenings.

On Sunday morning, we were anxious to return to Aragosta for its AMAZING blueberry pancakes, the best I have ever had!

Two more great things that this hotel offers:

·         Located within walking distance to Boston’s Italian North End, financial district, Freedom Trail, Faneuil Hall Marketplace, and TD Garden (for the Celtics, Bruins, concerts and other events).

·         A water taxi will bring you to Logan International Airport. One-way fare to/from the airport is $10.00 or $17.00 round trip. Much cheaper than taking a cab!

During our wedding weekend, I had the pleasure of staying on the first floor of the Sea Cloud building with my maid of honor the night before the festivities.  On our wedding night, Jason and I stayed in a 1,400-square foot Presidential suite which offered panoramic, three-sided views of Boston Harbor and a furnished private outdoor terrace overlooking the water.  This was the most amazing hotel room I have EVER seen!  And the view was spectacular as well!

I highly recommend the Fairmont Battery Wharf for anyone visiting Boston (for business or pleasure) or planning a wedding!  You will love this hotel!
