Best On-the-Water B&B
GREEN TURTLE, Charlestown
Set in the historic Charlestown Navy Yard, the Green Turtle makes its home on a pier that extends right out into Boston Harbor–which means tugboats chugging by and, of course, that magnificent Boston city skyline. Want a little piece of the urban life? Hop on the water taxi that comes straight to your door. Shipyard Quarters Marina, 13th St. 617-337-0202; greenturtlebb.com

Best Room with a View
The most swoon-worthy thing about the rooms at this waterfront high-rise are the views that nearly every room rolls out–whether it’s one peering over the harbor or across the city. 510 Atlantic Ave. 617-747-1000; intercontinentalboston.com

Best Boutique Lodging
Some hotels are historic, others are hip. Rarely do the twain meet. Not so at the Liberty, a restored jailhouse that tastefully highlights the architecture of its former incarnation. Layered balconies look down to a sweeping lobby (where champagne is poured at check0ib), while the spacious rooms and suites are decked out with amenities and sublty chic accessories. 215 Charles St. 617-224-4000; libertyhotel.com

Best City Lodging
Few things can match the mix of charm, romance, and elegance of Charles Street, but this jewel box of an inn has been doing just that since it opened 10 years ago. This nine-room townhouse melds luxury (Frette linens, marble fireplaces, garden views) with history (the house was a Brahmin fixture built in 1860). the meticulous staff goes beyond the call of duty to accommodate requests. 94 Charles St. 877-772-8900, 617-314-8900; charlesstreetinn.com
