I was here for a work trip in late September. Kudos to the staff here. All of the little things that made my stay that much better. The room was quite spacious for a city hotel. The Bliss products too were amazing. Great location, although since it's near the theater district and a bunch of bars, it was a bit... More

I got an email last Thursday, October 17th for the grand opening of Tunnel at W Boston. It said it was free to get in before midnight, so I went to see what it was all about. You walk in, down 3 flights of stairs, and there was Tunnel. It really did look look and feel like you were indeed... More

Service. Polite and fast, concierge seemed to know the city well. Rooms. Wonderful room. Spacious, nicely decorated. Good shower, no handset. Little street noise, street view. Lobby bar is popular in theather show nights. Good coctails served. Closeby chinatown & theather districts. Lively area. Breakfast at the hotel is poor, I highly recommend trying Mike & Patty's close to the... More

Thanks for the props, LittleFox77. Our Concierges know all the hottest spots so I recommend that all guests stop by for the inside scoop. Market is a great spot for breakfast, dinner, and drinks but we dig Mike & Patty's too. See you again soon. More

W Boston is centrally located and walking distance from many historical sights. The hotel is vintage W with a contemporary decor in common area's and in the guest rooms. The room layouts are a bit awkward and inefficient, however the floor to ceiling windows bring in naural light and great city views if on an upper floor. The staff is... More

Really enjoyed our stay. Easy walk to Boston Commons, Back Bay, Northend and Southend. Close to the subway (known as "the T") so we could get around town and to the airport. Also close to theaters and shopping. Our fifth floor room didn't have a view but it was big. Wi-fi worked perfectly. (Free for SPG Gold or higher status.)... More

The W Boston is in conveniently located. Boston Common close by, lots of shopping and restaurants within quick walking distance as well. For great pastries and breakfast, Flour is also a short walk from the hotel! Service was especially great as they were accommodating with late check-in as well as late check-out. Minor feedback is that it is pricey, and... More

Just stayed here for two nights, booked in by a client who was doing an event here. Please please note that I am reviewing this as a luxury property- if it were a Holiday Inn it would get four stars, but it's not- and the prices reflect that, so the review does too. First the good: - Location- theater district,... More

Great location! Right in the heart of the theatre district, very close to Newberry St. Easy access to great shopping, restaurants and bars. The bar and restaurant in the hotel were spectacular! Great service and style! Love this hotel and would highly recommend!!!

When we stay in a boutique hotel and drop that kind of money, we expect all the amenities and service to be extraordinary and small details a standard practice. The rooms were very basic; had to sign up for wifi; bathroom lacked basic toiletries (only one bar soap, no q-tips, cottonballs, shower cap, etc), housekeeping awoke us at 9:00 am.... More

The W is well located right in the middle of the theater district, surrounded by a variety of restaurants of varied cuisine and cost and near public transit. The staff were very friendly, helpful and quick. The rooms are presented in European clean lines and the bed and pillows were very comfortable. The restaurant at the W is a bit... More
