I stayed here with two friends during a convention so the location was perfect even though it was pretty expensive. The room itself was pretty roomy and very clean, the pool/fitness center was open and fully operational which was a nice surprise. There's a starbucks right in the lobby as well. Overall, convenient, clean, comfortable accommodations which was a nice... More

This was my 3rd stay at the The Renaissance Waterfront. The difference between my first stay 3 or 4 years ago and my stay this and last stay is the amenities and services available to me as a Marriott Platinum Member. I've spent the last 5 years or so on the road for work hustling and gathering points and stays... More

I stayed here for a work event but it was a lovely hotel. Very sleek and modern and the rooms were spacious for a city hotel. The artwork inside the hotel was very nice. Very large work out room (at least 10 treadmills) and small pool. The bar was comfortable with great access to TV's but cozy enough that you... More

We just returned from a Saturday night stay and the hotel was gorgeous. Although check-in isn't until 4pm we were happy to have rooms ready at 12pm after traveling 2 hours in a snow storm. The service is fantastic!! The rooms were really spacious and modern with huge, comfy beds, flat screen TVs, marble counters, glass showers etc. The pool... More

We stayed at the Renaissance while in town for a concert. Room was ready for early check in on a Friday at about 1 pm. Lounge is closed on the weekends, but was offered choice of breakfast vouchers or bonus points as a Gold member. Upgraded room on 21st floor included a large window overlooking the water, couch and coffee... More

I stayed at the Renaissance Boston Waterfront earlier this month with my sister for leisure purposes. The hotel is about 5-6 minutes (driving) from the downtown area, and there are almost always cabs lined up in front of the hotel. I don't think we saw a fare higher than $8.00 before tip - not so bad, as far as these... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It was our first time at a Renaissance property. We were able to get an early check-in as I was attending a meeting and that saved me from hauling my stuff around all afternoon and evening. I was also able to freshen up. The room was very clean and had a nice view. The king... More

This hotel is very nice and the staff is friendly. They have a great little bar just off the lobby that had live music and the decor is earthy and urban. The restaurant was fantastic at breakfast, however not that great at dinner. I recommend taking a walk down the block to The Test Kitchen. This hotel has a wonderful... More

Stayed at the Renaissance because I'm a Marriott rewards member and this hotel was the best value during the summer months (still a little pricey, but it's Boston). Valet parking was fine. Check-in hit a snag when they couldn't find our reservation (was using Rewards points), but it all worked out. There were plenty of restaurants to eat near the... More

Hotels can sometimes be hard to review because they can be so alike, but this one stood out to me. It is clean and well kept. There is a pool and a hot tub which kept the kids occupied. The wi-fi there is really expensive though.
