Really average and really pricey--perhaps because its next to Convention Center--feels like an airport--not an airport hotel, an airport---rooms are okay and for 4 bills, yikes!

I was very disappointed in this hotel. Considering the rooms are 400 dollars a night on a weekend during the summer, I expected much more. The lobby and pool area was nice, however the rooms were very small, yet the bathrooms were large. Yet, what I hated about this hotel is the LOCATION! It took about a half hour to... More

Perfect location for conventions - a bit of a walk to the financial district but a short walk to public transportation. it was a $20 cab ride from the airport but it would have been $2 by The "T" if I had researched how to get there from the...

Nice Hotel, but they charge you $30 a day to park, it's a hike to get to almost any attraction in the city, they charge you hourly for internet access, and the front desk/concierge is so busy that service requires a fair amount of waiting. All in all, Westin is a good chain of hotels, but this Westin was far... More

My husband and I stayed at the Westin Boston Waterfront from August 1 to August 3, 2008. We booked our trip along with airfare through Travelocity Last Minute trips. Because of this, I can't exactly say how much we paid for our room at the Westin -- we chose it soley on it being a 'luxury' hotel and because of... More

WIth some re-thinking of its customer service approach, this hotel could easily go from just OK to excellent. The facilities are by far the high point. Our room was spacious, clean, attractive, and modern with comfortable beds. The bathroom was larger than expected, well-lit, and very tastefully decorated, with a Heavenly Shower that lived up to its name. The hotel... More

a great place to stay if you are going to a convention which I was, very clean and wellkept rooms. The flat screen t.v. was a plus, as was the bathroom.Location was the only problem with the hotel. Costly breakfast ($23.00) we found a deli across the street which was more reasonable. Location was far away from everything but within... More

This is a beautiful hotel, with very luxurious rooms. The beds are very comfortable. I have never experienced such great lighting in a bathroom EVER! The staff was very friendly, even when my husband dropped our car keys down an elevator shaft. Maintenance was called immediately, and our keys were returned within 10 minutes. (much to my husband's relief) We... More

We had a excellent stay on our Boston vacation. The staff were always available when we had a question. Check in was fast despite a convention registering just before us. This hotel is not located in the city center. However we had no problem navigating with our car or on mass transportation. A good GPS. is a must for Boston.... More
