Renewed neighborhood. Great to see positive development here. Excellent location to nightlife. Closed club lounge on weekends continues to concern me at marriott properties. Great bar service. Restaurant breakfast very good. Loud children in adjoining room could easily be heard through adjoining door.

My boyfriend and I decided to do a couples weekend in Boston and recalled that this was a good property so we stayed there and were not disappointed. You can't beat the location! When you walk outside there a many fantastic restaurants just steps away all along the waterfront. You are also a very quick cab ride to the North... More

Loved every aspect of staying in this hotel - friendly staff, good food, convenient location, good nearby dining and entertainment options and nice rooms - except for in my opinion it's overpriced (compared to its neighboring options that would provide similar or slightly lower value proposition for quite lower price).

Stayed here for two nights. Although the hotel is outside the city centre, I chose it as I had an early morning flight out of Logan. The silver line stops just across the street from the hotel and I found it to be more convenient than staying at an airport hotel and relying on the hotel shuttle. The front desk... More

This hotel was in a great location. It is away from the touristy areas. It is where the locals come and hang out. There is a restaurant named Yankee Lobster a block away with great prices on lobster and lobster mac and cheese oh so yummy. 1 1/2 block away is a bike hub station. For $6 you have 24... More

My husband & I lucked out with landing a room for a 2 night stay in Boston via Priceline last minute. We normally try to stay near Copley area, but ventured out a bit further with our bid which was pleasantly accepted the morning of our trip. (under $200 per night) Hotel is conveniently located to MBTA stop (Silver Line)... More

We stayed with our family (boys age 9, 12 & 1) for 3 nights over 4th of July weekend. The hotel is very modern and clean and the staff is exceptionally friendly and helpful. The room was larger then most standard hotel rooms and kept impeccable our whole stay. The Starbucks - real Starbucks in the lobby, not just "we... More

The Renaissance Boston Waterfront Hotel proved to be a very nice stay. The hotel was very New, modern, elegant and the rooms were quite nice - as was the price for a Boston hotel. It was also off the beaten path, not in the center of the Boston activities, but in the up and coming Seaport area. Taxi rides into... More

Loved the location. Beautiful view from 8th floor. Beds were very comfortable. Every staff member was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast in adjoining restaurant was very diverse and concierge lounge also had great breakfasts. If you are vacationing in Boston the concierge desk was very helpful. There are several restaurants within walking distance. When we used a cab fees from... More

I've stayed here many time before and find myself looking forward to each new visit. This time got upgraded to a room on a high floor with a great view of the waterfront. The beds are comfortable, the property is beautiful and the staff are very helpful. The concierge was able to confirm last minute reservations for a restaurant that... More
