Best Hotels for July 4th Fireworks

Royal Sonesta Boston, Boston

Royal Sonesta, Boston

Ask For: Charles River views.

Boston easily qualifies for the Big Three of July 4th shows, alongside D.C. and New York City, and may rule the day thanks to its trump card: the Boston Pops. But since the pyrotechnics over the Charles River shoot from a barge, the best spots for viewing shift slightly from year to year. The Royal Sonesta Boston can’t guarantee a view from specific rooms, but it does claim a pretty consistent success rate. At the very least, a short walk will lead you to the walkway along the Charles River’s edge.

Bonus Views: A postcard-worthy scene of the city skyline, the landmark Longfellow Bridge, and Beacon Hill neighborhood.
