    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 4525 reviewsTripAdvisor (4525)

    Westins carry a reputation for excellence and, according to recent guests, this Copley Place branch meets those expectations. This property serves as an ideal choice for luxury seekers thanks to its prime location near the Newbury Street boutiques, its Grettacole Spa, and its variety of stylish on-site dining venues. Those of you traveling with children should also consider the Westin Copley Place, as it's just a few blocks from the Boston Public Garden and about a mile from Fenway Park. After a day spent exploring town, retreat to your spacious room, furnished with a Westin Heavenly Bed and linens, a large workspace and Wi-Fi access (for a fee). And because this hotel is part of the Marriott hotel family, Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and use points here.

    The Westin Boston Waterfront

    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 3068 reviewsTripAdvisor (3068)

    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.

    Perched on the edge of Boston's Chinatown district, within walking distance of the Boston Public Garden and Boston Harbor – the Hyatt Regency makes an ideal choice for travelers looking to dive into the city's eclectic culture. Previous visitors agree that this hotel serves as an excellent home base for exploring the city's diverse neighborhoods like South End. When you're ready to call it a day, head back to the Hyatt Regency for a dip in the pool or a flavorful meal at the hotel's contemporary restaurant, Avenue One. Afterward, retreat to your room, furnished with simplistic decor and upscale amenities like an iPod docking station, a coffee maker, a flat-screen TV and Hyatt's signature Grand Bed. Factor in the friendly staff and more affordable rates compared to other downtown hotels and you'll see why most recent visitors are raving about their stay. However, some do say navigating the property is a bit strange as you need to take separate elevators to get to the lobby and the rooms. Rest assured that if you're a Hyatt Gold Passport holder, you can redeem extras like free nights by choosing to bed down here.

    Set about 20 miles west of downtown Boston, The Westin Waltham Boston garners high praise from most recent visitors, though some caution that rates are slightly high for what you get. This hotel underwent a multimillion dollar renovation that was completed in September 2014, and brought updated accommodations, new check-in kiosks in the lobby and improvements to the gym and indoor pool. Recent guests compliment the ample hotel amenities, which include the spacious fitness center, business center, multiple event rooms, contemporary dining at Relish Burger Bistro and signature cocktails in the Lobby Lounge. Most cite a satisfactory stay overall thanks to the comfortable accommodations, stamped with signature Westin amenities like sleek flat-screen TVs, Heavenly Beds and simplistic decor.

    "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.

    If you're looking for a new, trendy hotel in Boston's up-and-coming Seaport District, you can't go wrong at The Envoy Hotel, according to recent visitors. Plus, since it's part of Marriott's Autograph Collection you can earn and use your Marriott Bonvoy points here. Situated on the waterfront, just blocks from the Boston Children's Museum, the Massachusetts Convention Center and the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston, The Envoy offers unbeatable skyline and harbor views –particularly from its Lookout Rooftop + Bar. Though the lounge is only open seasonally, it's quickly become a favorite among both locals and guests. Another hit for travelers and Bostonians? The property's lobby-level restaurant, Outlook Kitchen + Bar, which offers a seasonal menu made from locally sourced ingredients. Recent visitors said they were equally impressed with the rooms, which they described as large and spotless. Each boasts a harbor or city view (harbor views are worth the splurge, according to recent visitors) and a bright feel thanks to the large windows, white bedding and furnishings, and pops of yellow. Aside from the boutique-like touches, accommodations also feature complimentary Wi-Fi access and 32-inch flat-screen TVs, which are equipped with an Internet connection that allows you to sign in to your Netflix or Hulu account.
