This is a nice property located very conveniently for Boston. Downtown is only 15 minutes away if traffic is light. The property is very attractive, all glass and curves. The hotel itself inside is oddly shaped. The lobby is narrow and curved but attractive. This is where it got weird. We arrived late, and the place was crowded. Outside in... More

I lived in Boston from 2002-2007 and am very familiar with a number of the Back Bay and Waterfront luxury hotels. However, my boyfriend and I chose to stay at the Westin Waltham during a recent weekend getaway. I have to say that in comparison, we were pleasantly surprised by the hospitality, comfort and accessibility of the Westin Waltham. Not... More

The person at the check in desk was friendly and got us checked in with no delay. The rooms were okay, but we could hear noise from the construction going on at the hotel. The construction made it difficult to even access the hotel. We gave up trying to drive near the door and just parked in the garage. Luckily,... More

Service is generally slow and rude (definitely not up to Westin standard), they charge a ridiculous amount for Internet access (didn't know that any first class US business hotel chain did that any more), and the place is a construction site . None of this is disclosed on Orbitz. Spare yourself the extra stress (you likely have enough already if... More

This was not a planned trip. While on vacation last week, my husband became ill on Cape Cod and was rushed by ambulance to Beth Israel Deaconess in Boston. I contacted Hotels.com and they were wonderful. They got me a fantastic deal for Friday night of the Labor Day Weekend at the Westin in Waltham, Mass. They told me the... More

Nice room and nice hotel. Nice and safe area. A bar and restaurant within walking distance. Lots of added rates for wifi, not free, parking, $15 a day, a tray of snacks on dresser that is sensored and charges you even if you knock into it. The bar is a joke and the restaurant is expensive and not very appealing.... More

I’m glad you enjoyed the service and the hotel rooms. Our renovation is complete and we are now excited to serve all of our guests in our new lobby, restaurant and bar. As the only 4 Diamond hotel in the area we do charge a minimal fee for some of our amenities including internet, parking and the minibar. Although, internet... More

usually a good hotel for waltham right off 95 but didn't know there is rampant construction. Lobby is totally blocked, elevator took 20 minutes up and 20 minutes back down. I don't know how long it will last but if a hotel is this impacted by construction it'd be nice if they'd just take the hit and not book guests.... More

The construction is over. It was certainly not an easy time during the renovation and I’m sorry the disruption impacted your stay. We are thrilled to reveal and welcome all our guests into our new lobby and restaurant. If you decide to stay with us again, I’m certain your feelings toward the hotel will be reversed! The restaurant is amazing;... More

I was a part of a dance event that was held at the hotel this past summer. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I worked with the events coordinator that helped me organize the space perfectly for all our needs. They were very accommodating and flexible.

Stayed here over Labor Day weekend for a wedding as this was the choice for out of town guest. I had reserved 1 Jr. Suite and 2 Kings. Fast and efficient check in and clean rooms.
