Stayed at this hotel for a business meeting last week. The service was attentive and efficient. The rooms were nicely appointed and very clean. The bed was comfortable and the TV channel offerings were adequate. Room service took a long time to answer, but their 45 minute delivery time turned into 15 minutes instead. The food was excellent.

Hotel is on the new side and comfortable and the service was excellent. I was meeting my daughter in Boston and they allowed her to check in super early (8 AM). Enjoyed the complimentary upgrades to concierge lounge and free internet that comes with Marriott Rewards Gold. There are a lot of dining options nearby and the central part of... More

Our recent trip to this hotel was a pleasureable one. The front desk staff was curtious and attentive and provided us with a waterview room. The colors of the carepet were a little "bright" but overall the room was nicely decorated and updated fixtures/bathroom. There was no tub, only a stall shower but it was modern and clean. We had...

The Renaissance is a relatively new hotel taking advantage of the economic revival occurring along Boston's waterfront. It has excellent accommodations, first class bar and restaurant and a well equipped gym/spa. In short everything you need for an enjoyable stay along the harbor. That said, the area is still growing and while there are several hotels and fine restaurants, there... More

The location was really good, close to both the airport and a short walk/cab to the core. The room was comfortable, but for my stay the wifi was a bit spotty. The staff were very responsive and fixed a maintenance issue quickly. The lap pool was awesome to exercise enough and offset the great food Boston has to offer.

From the nice man who took our bags at the front door, to the nice man who hailed our last cab, this hotel has the very best staff I have ever met. I want to especially call attention to Kaitlin Sampson at the front desk and to Bonnie Latty, the concierge. These two ladies are so professional, gracious and helpful.... More

Great spot! Rooms are nice, bar and restaurant serve good food, and the location is just a few blocks away from other great bars and restaurants. Would stay here again! The only downfall, we were there Friday through Sunday and the maids never came to clean our room, but not a big deal, everything else was good!

We had a lovely view of the bay from our huge room. We went to the restaurant for breakfast. MC Speido was lovely except the ketchup! Breakfast is delicious with... More

Nice room, good view, good lounge, AMAZING Italian restaurant. Nice helpful staff. Starbucks in lobby. Immediate access to airport and downtown Silver and Red lines. Around 30 restaurants all around the hotel. Fives stars except for Marriott's $15/day Internet charge. That's wrong -- and if they don't change that policy, I'm going to quit their chains.

I have stayed here in the past many times but I never needed anything more than a room. This visit I needed laundry service so I personally handed my laundry to a bellman in the morning BEFORE 830am. Returned to my room at 630 pm needing to change for dinner and no clothes returned to my room. I called "Delighted... More

Dear Raymond, Thank you for reaching out to the hotel. I apologize for the disappointing situation with our dry-cleaning service, and regret that we were not able to come up with a solution prior to your departure Friday morning. I have reached out to you privately through the email address on your reservation to hopefully continue this dialogue. Thank you... More
