    A hipper member of Boston’s higher-end, the W’s 235 rooms can actually start in the relatively affordable $200s, so long as you book at least a few days in advance. The hotel portion on floors 3-13. Read more

    The room was cozy, with a modern twist. They are accommodating, and the hotel staff were polite, and friendly. The food was also good, and more than worth the price.

    The beds are comfortable and the location near theater district is great. The rooms are small and the tiny chocolate chip cookies in the mini bar are $10.

    Terrific hotel for the business traveller who doesn't like business hotel chains in Boston. NYC/SF vibe, cool, edgy location walkable to the Financial District, Chinatown and the Theater District.

    Nice hotel for 1-2 people. More than that is crowded. Lots of Euro youngsters in the bar at night, when the lobby basically becomes a night club.

    If there's a line at the W Lounge, check out DESCENT run by W too and located downstairs! Tell them Max sent you.

    Rooms are comfy and if you have time, stop in the breakfast room in the AM just past the bar.

    Great hotel, except the surrounding clubs create mini street riots at about 2:00am. Ear plugs...

    Don't stay here if you plan on getting any sleep. Cheap construction quality and a location in the nightlife center of the city provide plenty of noise.

    If you stay here ask for as higher room as possible. The road outside is incredibly noisy in the evening.

    Be careful. Not for everyone. When we came, there were couple serious conflicts at the next table, so police came by. But overall, drinks were ok, food wasn't good, but it was strdy.
