    "Wonderful stay," "clean modern and fresh," and "nicely apointed" are some of the adjectives recent guests used to describe the Renaissance Boston Waterfront Hotel. The Renaissance has several features working in its favor. For one, it's location places guests within walking distance of the convention center and the Boston Children's Museum and just across the harbor from Boston Logan International Airport. And for another, the Renaissance boasts spacious, tranquil accommodations. Each room features an LCD television, a marble bathroom and a calming aquatic-inspired color palette, filled with orange, blue and beige hues. Plus, guests have access to complimentary amenities (like a gym open 24/7 and free Wi-Fi in the lobby and public areas). Factor in the delectable bites served at Capiz Bar, and you can see why most recent visitors give the Renaissance two thumbs up. If you participate in Marriott's rewards program, you may receive freebies, like extra nights and priority check-in, by choosing to stay here.

    4.0-star Hotel Class
    Like most Westins, The Westin Boston Waterfront works hard to make your stay as comfortable as possible with a large indoor pool, a fitness center and delectable bites served at on-site dining venues, Sauciety and M.J. O'Connors Irish Pub. However, while many previous business travelers said The Westin Boston Waterfront suited their needs, the hotel's location (connected to the convention center, south of the city center) isn't the most convenient for sightseers. Recent travelers say if you're looking to explore Boston, you should stay somewhere else. As far as accommodations go, you can expect clean, comfortable rooms filled with signature Westin amenities, including plush Heavenly Beds, Wi-Fi access (for a fee) and sleek flat-screen TVs. If you're a Marriott Bonvoy member, rest assured that you can receive extra perks, such as free room upgrades, by choosing to stay here.
