Cashed in some points for the weekend, and John at the front desk was especially helpful and professional. When I came home later he was at the front door, and he remembered my name. It was a nice little touch.

Honestly, a little disappointed given how expensive it is. Great location and friendly staff. But room very minimalist (I know that's their style but furniture didn't feel as nice or comfortable as other W or Westins we've stayed in), no view, bedside light didn't work, noisy (next to ice machine), issues with my bill (which they did quickly resolve). Bar... More

Have traveled to different parts of the world on both business and pleasure and with over 30 years of travel I found my best hotel experience at the W in Boston. From the multiple greetings when we arrived, the special touches in the rooms, the availability of staff at every turn, it made for a wonderful and relaxing visit.

We stayed here for the marathon this year and really enjoyed it. Great location, very convenient to all of the marathon activities and the service was excellent. We used the valet parking and found it very convenient. I'd definitely stay here again.

On a recent visit to Boston for Business, I stayed at the W. I had stayed the previous night at a hotel half the price but 10% of the value. I was feeling miserable, slightly scared by my location and having the experience of missing out on this beautiful city. I called the W and checked in. Within minutes, my... More

I had the opportunity to stay at the W for the Boston Marathon this year. I was expecting the usual W hospitality but really was blown away with the service and how special they made all the runners feel! It started with unexpected, complimentary power parfaits for breakfast. After the race (for which it was 40 degrees and crazy wind... More

Was in Boston for a graduation with my two older sons. Having just stayed at the W in Chicago had expectations the hotel would be great. Should be as the price was! Not so. The room was dusty and carpets were not clean. The extra cot was terrible quality and seemed to have a right side up, which was not... More

This hotel does it right! The thoughtful touches are everywhere. From the time you check in, everything is taken care of. Fantastic staff. Large rooms and well-appointed. Coffee in the morning. Free wifi for SPG members (free). I was here for the Boston marathon and for runners and guests alike, it was a fantastic experience. Champagne when you arrived. Water... More

Stayed 3 nights. While located near th restaurants, theaters, etc. it is very problematic if you room looks out on Stuart street since each night from after midnight until 2:30am there is a lot of street noise as people, cars with horns blaring, etc. seem to result when theatre events are over. So, do not get fooled by location. More... More

From the moment you arrive (thanks Juan, Nick & company) you never have to open a door. Beautiful lobby, nice desk staff. Rooms are spectacular. Great beds, bathrooms, amenities. Perfect location, couldn't ask for more.
