    Custom House has bones going back to the mid-19th century, though the tower wasn't plunked there until the 20th. Perfect for business travelers in town for a while or those relocating to the region. Read more

    Most recognized building in Boston skyline. When built it was erected taller than legal city limit; allowed because it was a federal bldg. Observation deck but tours only 1x/day. More info in our blog Read more

    The observation deck at the 26th floor offers a stunning view of downtown Boston but is not accessible, except each day at 2pm. Come 10 minutes before & ask the reception for it. Only 3$ per person.

    If you are staying here, you have to go to the observation deck. Top floor outdoors. Amazing views!

    Walk around inside, it's open to the public and the vibe is so cool. Love the 2nd floor rotunda.

    One of Boston’s first skyscrapers, you may recognize the Custom House from it’s popular culture lead-ins on TV shows like Boston Legal, Crossing Jordan or the Practice.
