Overview

Comfortable Westin Heavenly Beds
Some recent guests reported lackluster customer service
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. And because this hotel is part of the Marriott hotel family, Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and use points here.
