The Westin lobby is impressive. The high atrium filled is bright and tastefully decorated with stone and birch trees (too bad they're not real). When we arrived, it was bustling with people, most of whom were at the hotel for conferences and meetings. Besides a restaurant and lobby bar, there is a Starbucks and gift shop tucked in the lobby.... More

Flew transcontinental and wanted a layover in Boston, but near airport. This hotel fit the bill, and came up at $139 on Priceline. Got a great room - which to me means quiet and clean. Front desk staff were helpful and competent. The irish pub and the hotel's lobby restaurant were both ok (not great) but reasonably priced (pub) and... More

I had a conference here and invited my husband and 1 1/2 year old son to tag along. My husband and son had a blast swimming in the pool and walking/taking public transportation to downtown. They have developed the area since I last visited with new restaurants (we loved LTK and Papguayo) and had kid-friendly options at the hotel too.... More

My wife and two children stayed here for a night prior to going to Los Angeles. This is a great hotel that is close to the airport. For us it worked out well because we had a very early morning flight and the hotel is literally 5 minutes from the airport. The room was clean and spacious and we had... More

I first want to say priceline and Boston don't work hand in hand. Booked on priceline for the cheapest rate and resting either waterfront or downtown they gave me the Western Waterfront. You'll need to take a taxi into town $20 the T station is a 15min walk. Not easy. Selfpay parking $32 you'll need your room key to swipe... More

I stayed at the Westin Boston Waterfront because it was attached to the Convention centre. Our Convention had a negotioated rate of $200.00 and when I booked the best rate they could give me was $410.00 PER NIGHT as our block was full....a difference of $210.00 a night. I own and operate a hotel and was shocked at the price... More
