BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - Dec 27, 2013) - New Year's Eve parties have come a long way from tame sing-alongs of "Auld Lang Syne." And as cities across the country prepare to welcome 2014 in a variety of ways, the exciting, high-energy events in Boston make the city one of the most popular destinations in which to celebrate, especially when visitors stay at the ideally situated Boston Marriott Long Wharf hotel.
Premier among hotels near Boston Harbor, the property sits serenely along the water. Its picturesque position, however, translates to more than enviable seaside views during the day: It also puts guests front and center to the midnight fireworks display over Boston Harbor on New Year's Eve. Additionally, the hotel's proximity to downtown and Boston Harbor boat cruises means visitors can easily get around to all the best events in town from their Boston North End hotel.
Before the fireworks and festivities, however, guests can enjoy the last meal of the year at the hotel's dramatic new Waterline restaurant. Against a striking backdrop of vaulted ceilings and expansive windows that drink in harbor views, this sleek, contemporary restaurant specializes in traditional New England fare. Yet the tapas-style portions and local ingredients make the menu feel both modern and relevant. Additionally, the full-service bar features a wide variety of local microbrews, and the private dining room affords one more way to make New Year's Eve extra special.
At the end of the night, no matter how guests choose to celebrate, everyone can look forward to returning to some of the finest Boston, MA hotel accommodations available. The recently renovated guest rooms and suites include 300-threadcount linens, in-room refrigerators and safes and the same contemporary aesthetic that flows throughout the rest of the property. The in-room coffeemaker and Waterline's tempting breakfast buffet make the post-party morning considerably more palatable. And as one of the best hotels near attractions like the New England Aquarium and Faneuil Hall Marketplace, the property ensures that there's plenty to do during the rest of the vacation. Boston, after all, is as appealing on New Year's Day as it is the night before.
