    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

    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.

    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.

    "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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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

    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.
