On our 11th wedding anniversary, the Marriott’s Custom House surprised us by having us stay at the Eagle Suite on the 21st floor. The view of the Boston Harbor and the city up there was spectacular! Our suite was just below the face of the iconic clock and as an added surprise, we saw where the Peregrine Falcons nest on top of the building thru a camera that was focused on them. Did you know that since 1987, there has been consistent pairs of Peregrines nesting there and since 2007, there had been 64 chicks banded from this site and they have been found nesting as close as Quincy, MA and as far as New York? Although we did not encounter any falcons (thank goodness), our stay on top of this iconic Boston building is such a beautiful experience; something out of the ordinary… more like fabulous!
