  • Our wedding reception at the Bostonian exceeded all my expectations. From our first visit to our wedding day, our coordinator Nicole Stone, was incredibly helpful and made us feel like we were the only wedding all fall. The hotel, right in the heart of Faneuil Hall, has old Boston charm while being also having a city sleek vibe. The ballroom has a fantastic view of the skyline which helps bring the room to life once the sun goes down. There were numerous options for food and drink packages and Nicole helped guide us to what would fit within our budget. The food was outstanding and we have had many guests rave about their meals. I was happy that there were so many options to chose from as we are not chicken/filet people and were able to offer our guests fresh New England seafood. If food is one of your top priorities for your wedding, as it was for us, the Bostonian will not disappoint. The staff was incredibly accommodating as we had quite a bit of decor to drop off and there were zero... Read more

  • We only held our ceremony and happy hour at the location but it was beautiful! Nicole and her team were on top of the game, and because we chose to have the ceremony at 2pm on a Friday it was a STEAL for a ceremony, open bar and happy hour! The ballroom is foreground with fantastic city views.

  • 5 stars doesn't even seem to do the Bostonian justice. TL;DR: If you're looking for a fantastic venue with an even better value and want to work with best of the best, book the Bostonian immediately! The Bostonian was the first venue we saw and knew that it was likely to be the one. We knew that we wanted to be in the city, but didn't want a stuffy hotel ballroom. Although it is a hotel, The Bostonian was far from a standard ballroom. We immediately fell in love with the amazing giant windows, incredible staff and the location. We did our due diligence and saw countless other options, but in the end, The Bostonian offered everything we were looking for and more for way less than the competitors. Not to mention, Nicole is a goddess among mortals and I wasn't going to pass on the opportunity to work with her! Before booking, we had decided to have dinner at North 26 to get a sense of the food. The food was very important to us and while they are different menus, the same head ch... Read more

  • If you want to feel like King and Queen on your wedding day then you should have The Bostonian to be your venue. Not only this place is affordable, their packages are incredible and its in a great location but their service and attention that you will get throughout your planning, during the wedding and even the next day is INCREDIBLE. When I say that my wedding went without a glitch I mean it. It's been over a month and we still can't believe how perfect everything went. We had Nicole as our event coordinator, she was there with us all the way, and understood exactly what we were looking for. Nicole was on top of everything OH! and the food?? also INCREDIBLE Stop thinking about it and reach out to them and have your perfect big day at the Bostonian

  • If you plan on getting married in Boston you HAVE to check out the Bostonian. The venue is beautiful, the food is delicious, and the staff are AMAZING!

I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking to get married in Boston!

  • When looking at venues, my husband and I knew we wanted something in downtown Boston, but didn't have a major budget. When we found the Bostonian, the choice was clear. The venue is a lovely glass atrium, in an amazing location right next to Faneuil Hall. The best part is the amazing package deal at a variety of price points depending on your budget and each package is fully customizable. Nicole Shapiro was so helpful in coordinating everything and making us feel secure in our decisions and plan for day-of; we didn't even need to hire a coordinator because she handled everything from helping us select the menu to telling us when it was time to cut the cake. She's also a delight to work with and superstar at her job -- even while she was planning her own wedding! When it came to day of, the entire staff was super attentive and all of the guests raved about how caring everyone was. When I walked in to the cocktail hour, one staff member immediately offered me some of the passed hors d'oe... Read more

  • As soon as we saw the Bostonian, we knew it was the perfect place for our wedding. My husband and I wanted a city wedding with skyline views. The Bostonian has such a prime location, right across from Faneuil Hall. You can walk to so many beautiful places for photos from here. I truly don’t think you can beat the location. The Seasons Ballroom has a unique vantage point of the city. You get skyline views without being 50+ stories high. Right out the window is Faneuil Hall & Quincy Marketplace, the clock tower, and some other beauties! We had our ceremony and reception in the ballroom and the setting couldn’t have bene more dreamy. The Seasons Ballroom has modern and clean feel, perfect for any decor you want to add. Most hotel ballrooms have bold and busy rugs, dated light fixtures, and feel overly stuffy, but this space is so modern and fresh. We worked closely with Nicole (and Rachel was great too, who we talked to a few times!) and she guided us through the whole process. The... Read more

  • I could not recommend The Bostonian or Nicole enough to other couples. The location was simply perfect and they really made the entire experience feel special and enjoyable. Nicole was so responsive and amazing, it was such a comfort to have her handling everything and doing an amazing job. Compared to other venues we initially looked at, the Bostonian seemed to go above and beyond to include everything that we may need. Can't wait to visit again!

  • We are so happy that we chose the Bostonian for our wedding! We had both the ceremony and the reception there, and Nicole was a pleasure to work with throughout the whole process. She was incredibly responsive to questions and helped us with all the planning. The location is perfect, and allowed us to take really great photos on the Greenway and in Fanueil Hall prior to the wedding, all within an easy walk. The Seasons Ballroom is a beautiful glassed-in space (not your typical hotel ballroom at all, which we were thrilled to find!). The food was delicious, people were complementing us on the appetizers and dinner the whole evening. Nicole dealt with all the little details for us on the wedding day, the service staff provided wonderful service, and overall we were just thrilled with how everything came together. We would highly recommend the Bostonian to anyone else looking for a beautiful wedding venue in Boston!

  • I can't thank The Bostonian staff enough for the wedding of my dreams. I was convinced I had a venue picked out but my mom forced me to look at another for comparison. I picked the Bostonian because it was closest to my office, so easy to go tour but the second I met the staff and saw the space I fell in love - not to mention how reasonably priced the packages are compared to anything else in the city. Our whole theme was downtown Boston, and this is as downtown as it gets. I was very anti-hotel ballroom, but The Bostonian's ballroom is anything but traditional, with the floor to mid-ceiling windows and balconies. Plus they included space for the after party and the brunch. The only hiccup we had was staff turnover - my hotel planner left about 3 weeks before the wedding. I was petrified at first, as we had many non-traditional elements that we had very carefully choreographed with her over the past 10 months - our ceremony was in the ballroom, we were the largest wedding they had ev...

  • Our wedding reception at the Bostonian was so incredibly wonderful and the staff was simply the best! All I can do is sing their praising, especially Nicole, the catering sales manager that we worked closely with leading up to our wedding and on the day of the reception. Every time we met with the Bostonian, they treated us like family and showed genuine interest and passion in making our wedding day perfect. Nicole would respond to all of my questions and requests within a day, if not within an hour. I was planning form halfway across the country and the Bostonian made that seamless and easy. I did not have a wedding planner, but the Bostonian staff made it so easy that I wouldn't have ever thought of needing one. The food was also delicious and the location is absolutely ideal - it felt like we got such a good value for everything. It was truly an exceptional experience having our wedding with the Bostonian and I would whole-heatedly recommend the venue and their staff to any bride!

  • Truly a hidden gem in downtown Boston. We wanted a wedding that encapsulated the city we love and the Bostonian hit the nail on the head. Everything was easy and accommodating from the first visit, all the planning, to the day of execution. The weekend of the wedding we were treated like a kind and queen by every hotel employee and our coordinator Ashley was amazing! She helped us every step of the way and allowed us to enjoy the day since we were confident she would execute everything perfectly. Our guests are still telling us about the amazing views, food and service. I would recommend this venue to anyone and every one looking for a Boston wedding venue. Hands down amazing!

  • I don't think I could say enough good things about our wedding at the Bostonian! The venue is visually stunning - the backdrop of the statehouse was gorgeous for our ceremony. The food was absolutely delicious as well! The whole staff was so accommodating, but especially the wedding coordinator Lindsay who was absolutely wonderful to work with. Also, our guests staying at the hotel loved how it was in the center of Boston. And we all went out after the reception - it was very cool to be so close to so many great bars. Everyone had a blast!!

  • My review was too long to fit here so to sum it up - we were billed thousands of dollars in excess of what was agreed upon prior to the wedding in writing, When the fire alarm went off in the middle of the ceremony - when there was no fire - not a single member of staff notified any of the 105 guests in the ceremony room of what to do or whether it was an actual fire or not. The hotel would later claim it was a natural disaster.... despite there never being an actual fire. Disappointing to say the least.

    Dear Ariel, Congratulations! We wish you all the happiness and health in a lifelong marriage. Thank you for your posted review and we understand that not every detail was to our mutual service expectation, and I offer a sincere apology for what was in our control. As one can see from a long list of past favourable reviews, yours’ is an anomaly and not in keeping with our standards. Boston has some of the strictest fire codes for public buildings in all of the United States and anytime an alarm sounds, it is mandated by policy and equipment settings. Truly, we are happy that it was a false alarm regardless of reason and agree that timing could not have been more inappropriate. As for your guest safety, our public address identified for all guests to remain in their current location until further notice, and once cause was determined, this was communicated and we avoided rushing your wedding out of the building. We realize that this interruption was extremely upsetting, especially for a bride and I know my team did all possible to relinquish your angst. For your inconvenience our Banquet Manager, Stephen, and your personal Wedding Planner, Nicole, allowed additional time to your Open Bar as a gesture of goodwill. Your statement of a billing error is accurate, and, yes, great hotels make mistakes and we acknowledged this with a full adjustment, and as well waived your contracted additional $400 bar tab as an ‘olive branch’. This type of billing inconsistency should not have occurred and we have evaluated protocol to prevent any further inconvenience. We wish you a wonderful first year in your new life together and look forward to your return, on your anniversary, with your Complimentary One Night Stay. Thank you, Robert Rivers General Manager
