5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

One of my favourites in the Starwood system, and my go to hotel in Boston. Fantastic SPG recognition, awesome gym and convenient location. Having a 7/11 across the street is also very convenient. This was my first SPG Keyless experience - I expected it to be clunky but with an iPhone 6, it worked great and was fun to use.

We spent the weekend in Boston at the W Hotel. It's located towards the Back Bay. Upon our arrival, we were greeted by Gildas at the reception desk. He was more then helpful suggesting places to go & things to see. Our first day we walked to Boston Common, Newberry St & Boyleton St. It was a nice day &... More

As per usual with the W brand, this hotel was hip and trendy. Great service as usual. Nice bar but no large restaurant here, which was fine. Good gym facilities. Some street noise was audible. I did not try the spa facilities but they looked very nice.

I have stayed at the W Boston several times and it only gets better. I stayed there for the Boston marathon weekend and the whole staff were totally outstanding. My room was perfect and the staff did all they could to ensure the athletes felt special, with free goodie bags , a nice breakfast, champagne on arrival, party after the... More

Don't be fooled by their claims of "fabulous" or "spectacular" rooms. I decided to book the "spectacular" level - expecting a minimum of space and a decent view. What I received was a room next to the elevator, looking out at the back wall of a Doubletree hotel, and a room where you could barely walk between the end of... More

Booking: straight forward and easy online. Check-in: Frank and Danielle(I think) helped me out - they were super pleasant and patient - gave me an upgrade I presume for my Gold status and spent quite a bit of time trying to get my Keyless card (using my phone) to work. They said it was new and I was a willing... More

My wife and I stayed here while in town to run the Boston Marathon, and we couldn't have had a better experience. The staff was friendly and always willing to help out, no matter what the request. The room was spacious and yet cozy. We felt at home during our 4 nights, and I don't know what else you could... More

Looking back at holiday photos prompted me to write this article albeit rather belatedly. My wife and i visited the United States of America last September and our first port of call for a few days, was the city of Boston. Travelling independently, we selected the W hotel for our stay, and many weeks before our arrival, we exchanged emails... More

I stayed at the W Boston using 20,000 StarPoints/night for the Boston Marathon weekend. Unfortunately, I was not offered an upgraded room even though I'm a 100-night Platinum member, but the hotel was 100% full due to the marathon. The staff did a great job accommodating the extra people and offered several complimentary amenities for the marathon including water/towels in... More

I stayed at this property for one night. I booked through expedia and reserved a larger room with two queen beds. The check-in staff were friendly and efficient and the doormen were friendly if a little too familiar. The room on the 7th floor was ok, a little on the small side and the decor is beginning to look a... More

GurkiSinghGM, General Manager at W Boston, responded to this review

Hi Ilovelinux, Thank you for taking the time to write your review. W Boston is located in the heart of the city, in the middle of a thriving nightlife scene. While many of our weekend guests enjoy the close proximity to everything Boston's nightlife has to offer, those looking for a more quiet experience are better situated on the other... More
