The Harborside's location, near Faneuil Hall Marketplace and right alongside the Rose Kennedy Greenway, sounds expensive, but it's actually an affordable alternative. Some of the 98 guest rooms even have water views, though be aware that others look inward, cruise-ship style, onto an eight-story, skylit atrium. Rooms got an upgrade during a 2006 renovation and have teak platform beds, flat-screen TVs, hardwood floors, and, in some cases, exposed brick. Set in an 1854 granite warehouse, the Harborside is also just a short walk from the North End Italian district, the Financial District, and the hopping Seaport, meaning there's a wide choice of close-by restaurants, bars, and shopping. That also means that the neighborhood can get noisy after dark, with crowds waiting to get into the area's rowdy bars.—Jon Marcus
