The Custom House in Boston, Massachusetts, was established in the 17th century and stood near the waterfront in several successive locations through the years. In 1849 the U.S. federal government constructed a neoclassical building on State Street; it remains the "Custom House" known to Bostonians today. A tower was added in 1915; the building joined the National Register of Historic Places in 1973 and was designated a Boston Landmark by the Boston Landmarks Commission in 1986.Put Marriott's Custom House and other Boston attractions into our Boston itinerary builder tool , and watch your holiday take shape.
1674–1786The Royal Commissioners of Customs administered customs in Boston during the colonial period. In the late 17th century, the customhouse was located at the waterfront, on the corner of Richmond St. and Ann St."
At the time of the Boston Massacre in 1770, it was located on King Street, very near the Old State House. Private Hugh White was on sentry guard duty. Paul Revere's illustration of the massacre depicts the customhouse (along the right-most edge of the picture).
1786–1849After the revolution, the customhouse remained on State Street. Employees included Thomas Melvill (1786–1820). In 1810 it moved into a new building on Custom House Street (between Broad St. and India St.). In the 1830s American author Nathaniel Hawthorne worked there.

酒店的位置很好，楼下是昆西市场，走路去波士顿市中心的各个地方也很方便，风景也很好，能看到波士顿的海，外形是一个城堡还是塔的建筑，很有历史的感觉，可能这就是老楼独有的魅力吧，酒店基本上都是套房很适合家庭度假。 more »Hotel location is very good, downstairs is Quincy Market, walk to boston downtown all places is also very convenient, the scenery is also very good, can see the sea of Boston, the shape is a castle or tower building, very historical feeling, perhaps this is the unique charm of the old building bar, the hotel is basically suites are very suitable for family vacation.
