This hotel is very conveniently located and within longer walking distance to the downtown area / Freedom Trail walking tour. Parking was very close by (ramp entrance was around the block from the hotel) and the cost was about $70 for two nights. The pedestrian entrance/exit is shared with a condo residence, but it was open 24 hours so there... More

Stayed here one night on a business trip for a conference in the Seaport area. First, realize that Boston has a limited number of hotel rooms so expect to pay a premium for above average rooms. Some aspects I liked: - Fast check-in. The reception desk was well staffed. - Modern room, well appointed, clean and comfortable. - Location. In... More

The room had everything we needed - a comfy bed, a nice sitting area by the window which had a great view of the harbor, a mini fridge & a... More

We stayed here for two nights at the end of August prior to departing on a cruise to New England and Canada. This hotel was perfectly situated for us. We took advantage of the FREE transportation via city bus from the airport that dropped us off 1/2 block from the hotel and found that we were no further than 1/2... More

We were very well taken care of by Kristen at the Renaissance. When we arrived a bit early she found a room available for us and when we needed to check out a little later she accommodated us as well. The concierge helped us book a bus tour. Room was comfortable with a great view of the water. We had... More

this property was great. So close to the convention center and there are some great places to eat within a short walk of the hotel. The staff here was so helpful and I look forward to returning here to stay again when at the convention center.

friendly employees and good service. It was an easy walk to the convention center from the hotel. If you aren't traveling to Boston for a convention, this one is a bit off the beaten path. Hotel lounge and restaurant were both good and there's a full service Starbucks in the lobby. LuzLondono :)
