    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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 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

    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.

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

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

    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

    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

    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.

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

    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

    Love that it's close to downtown and also 6 minutes from the airport. Newer hotel, not one that's been refurbished. The rooms and beds are comfortable. The restaurant is mediocre and expensive.
  • Alexander W.
    Alexander WardOctober 20, 2012
    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.

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

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

    "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.

    Sterile and expensive business hotel far enough from everything to require a ride-share app. Unless you have to stay here, don’t.

    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.

    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.
