Located in the heart of Boston's historic North End, Mariners House underwent a complete renovation in 1999, adding modern amenities, elegantly-appointed common areas and four floors of unique guest rooms. The rooms, furnished with antiques and all with private baths, start at $65 per night including a full breakfast.
All rooms at Mariners House are air-conditioned and have private baths. The rooms are furnished with large work desks and custom furnishings. All rooms have a TV-DVD and WiFi.
Founded in 1847 by the Boston Port and Seamen's Aid Society, Mariners House was and remains a respite where seafarers and their families can find comfortable, affordable lodging and meals, professional guidance and religious counseling. In addition to the inn itself, Mariners House offers a breadth of services designed specifically to address the needs of professional mariners.
Guests must produce proof of active maritime service or maritime retiree status in order to book a room.
The common areas of the inn have been restored to their original state, combining nautical artifacts and authentic antique furniture with the modern necessity of a public computer with Internet access.
The Parlor: For watching TV and visiting with other guests.
The Library: For reading, playing cards or chess, and book swaping.
The Galley: Whether a guest is staying on board, a member of a ship's company on liberty, a retired seafarer or a U.S. Military veteran, our galley serves them breakfast and a complete entree for lunch and dinner in a clean, comfortable and modern dining hall.
The Chapel / Meeting Hall: For private meditation, or to gather with 40 of your shipmates for a reunion.
The Garden Courtyard: In warm weather, the courtyard provides a green respite from the city streets - you can "picnic" in the sunshine or just relax in a peaceful outdoor setting.
Shopping, entertainment and restaurants to suit every taste are available at nearby Faneuil Hall Marketplace, the Boston waterfront and the surrounding North End neighborhoods. Mariners House is located adjacent to the Paul Revere House on the famous Freedom Trail, and convenient to the waterfront, theatre and retail districts, as well as most of the union halls and the U.S. Coast Guard Regional Exam Center.
