Fabulous beds and great rooms but the plumbing in next room super loud. If your neighbors get up early so will you. Great room and fantastic breakfast. Housekeeping quick to attend to requests. Beautiful lobby and nice business center with personal computers

Great location with several restaurants and the Harpoon brewery nearby. It's in walking distance of these places, and a couple mile walk to others. Staff was very friendly helpful when checking in and out, as well as asking for directions. The view from the room is great, and the rooms themselves were pristine--extremely clean, up-to-date. There's a Starbucks in the... More

We picked this hotel for its location to our daughter's college graduation ceremony the next day. Took the Silver Line from the airport for free. Close to T. The only suggestion to the hotel would be to add a continental breakfast. The price of the room would certainly warrant that, and it would make things more convenient. I have no... More

I had an error in my reservation and reached a day earlier. To add to my problems the hotel was all sold out. In comes Jieling from front desk to my rescue...She was outstanding in ensuring the Marriott reputation of customer service was delivered. She started calling neighboring properties and this happened at 12 midnight and you may also want... More

Good location in Seaport area, with lots of restaurant options within two blocks. Front desk staff were very friendly and efficient. The room was wonderful, although I may be biased because I was upgraded to a suite (as a Marriott gold elite) without even having to ask. I did not try the lobby restaurant, but the breakfast lounge on 20... More

This hotel was an extremely pleasant surprise. I was expecting a run-of-the-mill hotel and instead found it to be quite nice with a large, spacious room, nice decor, comfortable beds and a nice bathroom, with a great view of the waterfront. Desk agents were very friendly and helpful. We also loved the location as it was extremely easy access to... More

I'll admit I am not docking this hotel because I chose a hotel in the historic area. You can walk there in about 20 minutes or so. The hotel location is great if you want t be in the Seaport area and there is an abundance of very good restaurants in the area. The hotel, rooms and staff were all... More

I stayed here for a recent conference. The amenities service restaurant check in and executive lounge are all top notch. All without the boom boom boom wherever whatever whenever of the W. Highly recommended and I would most definitely stay here again.

This review is a little late. My Husband and I had our wedding reception at The Renaissance Hotel in 2012. From the time we first toured the hotel as a possible wedding venue right up until today The Renaissance has been nothing short of Amazing. They are classy and they really know how to treat their customers. Hospitality at it's... More

I stayed at this hotel for a business trip in late April/early May. Although I arrived very early (before noon), my room was ready. Front desk staff very pleasant and professional, but down to earth. Their Navigator staff was very helpful, since this was my first time in Boston, I needed some help! Maid service was excellent, everything looked great... More
