Stayed here during a conference which was taking place in the convention centre. It's only a 5 mins walk over the bridge to the convention centre and was worth the discount than the adjoining hotel. Had a nice clean gym, welcoming lobby with very courteous and friendly staff. The major impressing factor for me were the Aveda toiletries! The room... More

Thanks to our Marriott status, we were upgraded to a junior suite upon check-in. The suite was roomy and clean, with a lovely modern bathroom and oh-so-comfortable king-size bed. Aveda products in the bath were also a nice touch. Some of the furnishings were worn, but I imagine this can be expected of any large hotel in a city setting,... More

All of the staff was very friendly! Room was average size but had great views of the waterfront. Room service was decent. Location is perfect for conferences at nearby hotels and convention center. A bit "far" if you want to be in Downtown Boston.

Great location, friendly staff. Nice restaurants within walking distance, and the Silver Line stop is right outside the door, so getting to & from the airport is a breeze. I would definitely stay here again when I am back in Boston.

I'm a Marriott Gold member. I used points to reserve one night at this hotel for my parents before they departed on a celebratory retiremnt cruise through New England. I sent an email to the hotel telling them it was for my parents and if there was any way they could upgrade them to a nice room for the night... More

Stayed here for a conference and the location is perfect. However, the check in people didn't go out of their way to welcome us when we arrived. The gentleman at the door did a better job. the room is not my taste, not quite sure what theme they are going for but the decor is not my cup of tea.... More

after a long flight from Arizona we were settled in for the night. I was sound asleep, then at 1:30 in the morning I was blasted out of bed by a blaring alarm, the decibel level was crazy high, my ears were ringing, I actually screamed as I awoke, I didn't know where I was, I could barely here the...

Great rooms, ok but not great room service menu but the towels are like they are from Motel 6. Stayed there twice hoping the first time was a fluke but the second time was the same. Not sure how they can be as rough as they are when the rest of the hotel is great. For $299 per night I... More

I stayed at th Renaissance Boston Waterfront for a few days for a conference. I wasn't very happy with the hotel and must say the best thing about it is that it is was a 5 minute walk from the Boston conference Center where my event was. But I wasn't motivated to write a review just because it is a... More
