    While not my first choice of Boston hotels, seems to be a great place for an event. #CEBSummit has been remarkably well run. Lobster rolls, crab cakes & airy sweet potato pastries--great event food.

  • Greg G.

    Great stay. All the staff I encountered from the doormen to front desk were friendly and helpful. Loved the bed and shower. Parking was expensive (even self parking) but would stay here again.

    An exerciser's haven. They have exercise clothes you can borrow for $5 if you forgot yours. Includes New Balance shirt, pants, and shoes with socks you can keep.

  • P.Diddy D.

    Only thing that's free here is bottle water and in-room Starbucks. The bed is amazing with decent amenities, but skip food or drinks. The waterfront has much better and less $ just a 5 min walk away

  • Taryn F.

    Great hotel with super-friendly staff right by the convention center and a quick walk to good restaurants and bars. The hotel lobby bar is perfect for solo travelers looking to unwind!

    Taryn F · January 24, 2012
  • Sarah B.

    First room smelled strongly of cigarette smoke. After I complained, got upgraded to a room on a higher floor with city view. Super comfortable beds! Didn't hear my neighbors, as others have complained

    Sarah Baldwin · March 13, 2013
  • Alexander W.

    Standard Westin, yes the walls are paper thin and yes the parking it insanely overpriced, but all Westins are - it's what it says on the can! Breakfast SHOULD be included for $385/night - but it's not

    Alexander Ward · October 20, 2012
  • Verna

    They still charge you for wifi (almost $20/day for "high speed") and walls are REALLY thin where you'll hear every moan and groan of your neighbor so ask for a room at the end of the hall.

    Verna · May 26, 2012
  • Ryan B.

    Sure, the price you pay is a little steep for the size of your room, however the hotel is located right next to a convention center and it is also pretty nice. Good beds

    Ryan Ball · April 7, 2015
  • Bear D.

    A lot of haters on this thread. I slept just fine walls no thinner than any other hotel. And yeah it's expensive but it's Boston it always is. Rooms n common areas lovely.

    Bear Dog · April 29, 2014
  • Claire

    Very poor to have no wifi in room unless you pay for it. Even worse when it's broken & they won't open the meeting room wifi. Rubbish for a business hotel. £1.5k + for 5 nights at a discounted rate.

    Claire · October 9, 2013
  • Alyssa K.

    Lovely room. Awful service. Desk would not issue me room key as my husband's wife, despite 17 points of ID including social security card and military spouse ID as we were both on orders. HUGE F.

    Alyssa King · October 6, 2012
  • Crystal B.

    There is meter parking about half mile walk, right on the bridge. Free after 8pm. There is also an attached garage, but it's pricy. They do validate.

    Crystal Beauchemin · January 10, 2015
  • Yousif D.

    View is good!! But the charge of the parking on your room's card.. So you can pay only $36/night and you can get your car as much as you can.

    Yousif D · May 26, 2015
  • Jackie C.

    Rodney is the nicest bellhop ever! Told us all about the hotel and the rooms features when we entered and said to call him personally if we needed anything.

    Jackie Campbell · July 9, 2012
  • Peter M.

    "Hybrid cars only" section has no outlets that support charging a car at 110v/15a much less NEMA 14-50. Price gouging on Wifi in 2014 should be against the law. Really crappy AT&T LTE coverage.

    Peter Marreck · August 18, 2014
  • Brad S.

    They do guided runs (about 3mi) every Mon, Wed, and Fri. Great way to start your morning. The guides are knowledable and very friendly!

    Brad Sukala · April 2, 2012
  • Alexander W.

    Oh, and don't bother with the wifi - it's not very good signal, and when you do get 'full service' on the gold package for $20 it's no faster than 3G.

    Alexander Ward · October 20, 2012
  • Denny M.

    Don't eat at sauciety for breakfast. The prices are ridiculous, the service was bad and the food was easily subpar and the quality could be found at any buffet style restaurant

    Denny McDonald · September 18, 2011
  • sergio

    Wifi should be free access in the rooms. Breakfast menu for the crew members limited :-( Nice hotel, rooms and gym with swimmingpool.

    sergio · February 20, 2013
  • Tobias K.

    Fitness center opens up at 5 am, but ask the reception and they will send someone to open up for you even earlier.

    Tobias Kurol · September 12, 2014
  • Elizabeth S.

    Be forewarned business people. Walls are less than paper thin. Do not speak private business in hotel rooms. Heard my neighbor sneeze. Sounds like he's in my room.

    Elizabeth Smith · January 24, 2012
  • Cat L.

    Great hotel and heavenly beds. I checked in with a loud baby crying next door and the concierge was able to change my rooms to a corner room. Had a great stay! Thanks

    Cat Lo · September 1, 2013
  • Dan W.

    Nice hotel, but you have to pay almost $20 for Wi-Fi. You can get it for free at Seaport Hotel across the street.

    Dan Waldron · May 9, 2013
  • Camilla V.

    No wifi downstairs. $5 incentive to forgo a room cleaning, which is lovely, except that breakfast costs $30.

    Camilla Velasquez Wolf · August 7, 2012
  • Michelle A.

    Beautiful and clean hotel. It's in a nice area away (but not too far) from downtown Boston.

    Michelle A. · August 3, 2011
  • Vanessa H.

    park across st on summer, use the meters if you are just doing a biz mtg or meal, or you will pay $30 in the parking garage.

    Vanessa Helmick · November 4, 2010

    Don't miss the hotel's Birch Bar and Patio. They make great cocktails here. · May 3, 2012
  • David A.

    On Mon, Wed, and Fri mornings at 6:30a the hotel sponsors a 30 minute jogging group that tours Boston's waterfront sites

    David A · May 9, 2011
  • Brendan O.

    BEWARE: No microwaves in basic rooms, and food/etc horribly overpriced ($3 sodas for starters)

    Brendan OSullivan · March 13, 2011
  • AJ T.

    Summer Salad in the lobby cafe is really good. Add chicken to it.

    AJ Triano · September 30, 2011

    Avoid the back parking lot at ALL costs unless you want to park in Uzbekistan!

    Derek K · January 14, 2012
  • Michelle A.

    The doormen have ice cold water and a towel waiting for you when you come back from a run. Now that's service!

    Hotel is beautiful but $35 to park for hotel guests is insane

    If you're lucky, they might upgrade you to a room with an AC vents view.

    Naquie Green · April 20, 2011
