Standard room which has lovely beds to sleep in, full bath amenities and good view from our room. Dining choices at the hotel, Starbucks and pool/fitness area. All were very crowded, hotel was full up with conferences.

Hassan is AMAZING. I love this hotel, its personnel, its feel. The lobby is an excellent place to gather, and there is plenty of room for all sorts of activities throughout the Lobby level. The people, though, are the best part of the hotel. We are here at least once a year for a convention, and the personnel remember my... More

While vending at the Arisia 2016 convention, we used the hotel's facilities. As usual, the staff at the Westin Boston Waterfront was super. They saw to our needs and responded in a very quick and professional manner. The hotel, as usual, was very clean and well appointed. Kudos to the valet staff for finding a space for us even though...

Stayed one night at Westin Boston Waterfront after learning my BOS-NYC flight was cancelled. The hotel is very close to the airport (about a $20 cab ride). It doesn't seem there is much in the area of the hotel, but cabs were easy to get. Since it was a short stay, I didn't use the gym or pool but did... More

I stayed here for a couple of nights while attending an event at the neighboring convention center. The easy access to the convention center, plethora of meeting rooms, onsite Starbucks and a pub-style restaurant made this the ideal location for business. The rooms were modern and efficient, albeit lacking charm. In addition to the convention center proximity, the Harbor Walk... More

Had dinner with a couple of friends at the Birch Bar - the food was excellent. We tried several appetizers which were all full of flavour and tastefully plated. I highly recommend the Ceviche, Seared Scallops Provençal and the Meze Plate. We were not disappointed by the entrées either. The Pan Seared Red snapper was flavourful and just as delicious... More

Very nice. Staff helpful without being intrusive, everything as it should be. Large bright bathroom, curved shower curtain gave plenty of room. Big rainshower head, and powerful handheld shower. Staff knew about allergy, and had a room prepared without feather pillows.

So, as a SPG Ambassador member, I travel a lot and with my experience having stayed at various properties. I prefer SPG and I have to say this is the best in Boston. Great location and for a business traveler like me I need good options when it comes to proximity to airport, downtown and yes - choice of restaurants.... More

I attend the Science Fiction / Fantasy / Costuming / Gaming / etc. fan-run convention called Arisia every January. For the past several years we have been located at the Boston Westin Waterfront hotel over MLK weekend in January. This means that the Westin is for four-plus days inhabited by (among others): wookies, aliens, knights, damsels, goblins, steampunk adventurers, Princess... More

I spent 5 nights in a one-bedroom hospitality suite on the 15th floor for the American Library Assoc meeting in January 2016. The suite bedroom was much larger than other Westin bedrooms, and I received free bottled water every day of my stay. The view of the Boston skyline was awesome! The Westin is attached to the Boston convention center,... More

Staying in Seaport District / South Boston Waterfront

Neighborhood Profile
Seaport District / South Boston Waterfront
This area has been expanding and becoming more and more popular, for good reason. Not surprisingly, the seaport district of South Boston is located beautifully along the water. The area is designed for easy strolling along the HarborWalk, and there are bars and restaurants for all ages and budgets. The Institute of Contemporary Art is located in this area in a contemporary building with an absolutely stunning deck overlooking the water. In the summer time there are Friday music concerts on the deck of the museum. Nearby, there are many green spaces to enjoy.
