As many of you know, my dad recently moved to the outskirts of Boston and I’ve been experimenting both with methods of transportation to visit him (car, train, plane, etc), and with the hotels in the area.
Most recently, I stayed at the Hyatt Regency Boston Harbor. I liked the hotel a lot and made a reservation to stay there again on my next visit.
Succinctly stated, the Hyatt Regency Boston Harbor is a very nice Hyatt Regency airport hotel. It reminds me of many other Hyatt Regency hotels that I like (such as the Hyatt Regency Jersey City and the Hyatt Regency Long Island). This is how close the hotel is to the runway!
Staying close to the airport worked well for this trip as we flew Saturday Morning to Boston Logan Airport and rented a car for the day to visit my father. After dinner with him, we drove back to the airport and returned the car. The hotel shuttle picked us up at the car rental location and took us to the hotel.
Our return flight was at 6pm on Sunday, so we were able to spend a leisurely morning and early afternoon at the hotel and surroundings before heading over to the airport and jumping around a few airport lounges.

Although the stay was only for one night, I used a suite upgrade certificate as I had a few expiring certificates.
The suite consisted of two adjoining rooms with two separate entrances. The living room area had a couch and a dining table as well as a nice console and television. There was a wall unit that I think was a Murphy Bed (but I don’t know for certain as I didn’t try to open it). Each room had a coffee machine, a bathroom, a closet with a safe. There were two bottles of water in each room that were complimentary for World of Hyatt members. Surprisingly, there were no refrigerators in either room, but there was a locked wine cooler in the living room.

The bedroom was fairly large. In addition to the typical furnishings, there were two armchairs nicely positioned by the window where you could sit and gaze out at the truly beautiful Boston Harbor.
The bathrooms were rather small and plain. However, we learned that the hotel is in the middle of renovating all of the bathrooms. I was shown a completed renovated bathroom on the 15th floor.
After arriving at the hotel at around 9 pm, we went to the hotel bar and had a drink. The employees were very friendly.
In the morning, I woke up, and right from my bed I saw the most amazing view of Boston Harbor right out the window!
I worked out at the hotel gym (separate hotel fitness center review), it was time for breakfast! The hotel had a very nice buffet.
Rather than the buffet, I chose Lobster Eggs Benedict from the a la carte menu. At my request, the hotel substituted salad for the home fries. It was all delicious.
To summarize, our stay at the Hyatt Regency Boston Harbor was very pleasant. I recommend it as an airport hotel, and it works perfectly for my Boston visits when I travel by plane. Others tell me they enjoy staying at this hotel also for business or leisure stays because it is convenient to take a water taxi back and forth to downtown Boston.
