This hotel is located by the waterfront with very convenient access to public transport. I took the free shuttle bus Silver Line from Logan Airport direct to hotel in less then 10 minutes. I get the room by the corner with partially waterfront and city view for 4 nights stay. The room was great and it's big enough and come...

We needed hotel for one night before early train and I wanted to check out this newly-developed area on Boston’s waterfront. We were able to check in early in a nice but basic room w/ fabulous views from 28th floor – really enjoyed watching the boats. We had rollaway brought up for no fee. There was plenty of room for...

We just returned home from a 4 night stay in Boston July 17-21. The hotel is in a beautiful location in Boston's new and expanding Waterfront Area. The staff was fantastic. A special thank you to Mariano for acknowledging our gold membership and upgrading us to a beautiful junior suite. It was beautifully decorated and had a very comfortable bed....

I've stayed here a couple of times, both times on weekends. The property has a great location in the new / ever expanding Waterfront area. It's an easy walk to most places, or a quick cab ride to the Garden or Fenway. Last weekend when I stayed, they had a one man musician in the lobby bar (RLife) and he...

I was pleasantly surprised at this hotel. The rooms are beautiful, comfortable and quiet. It's set up quite nicely for a business traveler, and is quiet for sleeping - two of my most important features! The hotel is located a short block from the Silver Line, so no need to get a taxi from the airport. There are several nice...

Our family of four stayed at the Renaissance Boston Waterfront in the recent heatwave July 17, 2013 when we needed a one-night extension and our other hotel couldn't accommodate us. We arrived after midnight, hot and exhausted and found a cool and elegant lobby and a very nice room waiting for us. The room decor was contemporary with a mild...

This hotel is close to the convention center - about a 5-7 minute walk. The hotel is nice updated and kept, clean, and the rooms are fine. The staff were very helpful and generous. For business travel though, the food options at the hotel itself were very limited. They had a restaurant and a bar, but just a few food...

This hotel is a short walk from the Boston Convention and the Seaport world trade centre. The rooms are a bit small, but clean and functional, and has a lap pool and a small exercise room, which is adequate, since not many people use it. Parking is valet only, and very expensive, so if you can use the public transport,...

I really liked our room and the location of this hotel is OK, but the staff gave me the impression that they could care less if we had a good stay or not. We had just come from a Marriott in Toronto where the staff went above and beyond, so the staff here was quite a contrast. They didn't greet...

This location is really good if you are going to the new convention center or you want to be close to the cruise ship or the airport. However, there are not too many restaurants nearby and the walk to downtown is 15-20 minutes minimum. Its actually a bit isolated. Taxis are easy to get, though. The lobby is trendy and...
