We have stayed at the other Marriot brand hotels in Boston several times over the last couple of years. This was our second time back the Renaissance, and twice now it has far exceeded the level of service at the others. We still enjoy the other hotels, but the Renaissance staff is different. Each person is committed to making your...

The hotel is in a great location. Lots of wonderful places to eat all around if you want to get out of the hotel. Quick drive to the airport and just as easy to get "downtown". The rooms are very comfortable with a modern feel, but still somewhat of a nautical theme. I've stayed here a couple of times. It's...

We keep returning here despite other well known and well respected hotels in the vicinity. We have been to the others and they are very good as well, however, the Renaissance Waterfront is the most consistent. We have never had to call because of a problem or concern. The staff is always very accommodating, the rooms are always clean and...

Walking distance to conference centre. Comfortable room, very clean. Did not have enough towels etc even though we had reserved ahead for 4 people. Could be better if continental breakfast...lounge on site was not open often and had minimal food

My boyfriend and I stayed for just one night at the Renaissance. Beautiful hotel, modern/contemporary, updated rooms, very clean! Within walking distance to the harbor and so many great restaurants! Surprisingly, we didn't hear too much noise from the airport despite how close the hotel is. Loved the hotel's restaurant, dinner and breakfast were delicious. Well worth the money!

I ended up arriving early. The trade show I was attending was already in full swing. The staff worked hard to make sure to get me a room right away. They were of the nicest Marriott staff I have dealt with in years. My one suggestion is leave the bar open later when it's packed.

Love this hotel. Short walk. .5 miles to convention center. Love getting fresh air before long indoor winter days. Close To great restaurants as well. Easy in out car delivery. Right off I 90. I drive ..from vermont . Easy accessibility to Boston sights. But best if you are at the convention Centre.

I was disappointed with my two-night stay at Renaissance and checked out early (was supposed to stay a third night.) For the most part, the staff I encountered were unfriendly and disengaged. They failed to execute on any of my requests (could I please have a restaurant menu for room service? Could I please have these items for breakfast? Can...

Dear Heidi T. Thank you for taking the time to review my hotel. I am deeply concerned that your experience here was not up to your, or our standards.

This hotel I stay at on a regular basis if the rate is reasonable. The service level from the moment you walk in the door has always been great. People at the front desk are friendly, accommodating, professional. Nice rooms, great food, and Location.
