We were forced to stay in this overflow hotel to attend the NEAA convention held at the Westin because the Westin did not allocate sufficient rooms for the event. The location was several blocks from the event. The lobby had no seating or area to meet associates. There was only a offensive smelling Starbucks creating the sensation it was not... More

Look - this is an expensive place, and relatively NEW. The traveler has a right to expect everything to be good. Superficially - it is...but once one sees one defect, then one starts noticing a LOT more. Maybe it's worn from the season, but there were a lot of dings and scratches on walls & furnishings. Every time i entered... More

Excellent nearby restaurants and walking distance to fabulous shopping. The area felt safe to walk on the street after 10 p.m. The staff was courteous and accommodating. We were able to check in early.

My husband and I stayed here for a conference last month, and were very comfortable here! We arrived to find out that valet parking was really the only option (and a bit expensive) but not being locals, we at least didn't have to worry about parking. The beds were very comfortable and everything was always clean. We visited the fitness... More

A lovely hotel located in the Boston water front close to the World Trade Center. Staff are friendly, food is good, gym well equipped, great indoor pool and rooms are comfortable. The only complaint I had was that the front desk collected a $5 fee to collect a small A4 sized package on my behalf. I agree the fee was... More

My visit to Renaissance Hotel in the Seaport was for a conference. Parking was valet only, and expensive at $46 daily as is common for a hotel in the city, but our host provided us with a parking validation sticker which took care of that. No signage directing me were to be found in the lobby, but a simple asking... More

I work in Boston and I've had to stay here twice this summer as I've had to either work very late or be in very early. Both times I've checked-in fairly late and been in an exhausted state. Check-in is literally less than 2 minutes, which I love. They are very professional and organized at the desk. The rooms I've... More

Average room, nothing out of the ordinary. Pros: Early check in Late check out Bag storage Location Cons: Dirty bathtub in need of a deep cleaning Ill-fitting bathroom door hard to close Paying for wifi in 2015 is insane Overpriced Would not stay there again.

great location, steps to the harbor, waterfront, great dining. the nautical theme is fine, but the decor needs updating, feels like the 80s. the pool was a disappointment, small and old, and the hot tub was not operational, even though I called the night before to ask about both. we were not sure if the bed had been changed. it...

Room was extremely clean. Front desk very friendly. Stored our luggage when we got there early and called on my cell when room was ready. They gave us a nice room with a harbor view. Room service tray did not include salt or pepper and food was bland. The bathroom amenities were equivalent to a category 3 hotel. The bathroom... More
