The Westin Waltham is convenient, clean and actually a very well designed building. The amenities were adequate, room service spot-on and all of the staff (except for the coffee shop employees) were very nice. We arrived early and they let us check in at 10 am...and for that we are grateful; driving all night from Pittsburgh was killer.
The shower had no pressure behind it whatsoever but maintenance was quick to fix it.
My BIGGEST complaint, and frankly this is what ruined the hotel, was the lack of noise reducing fixtures. We could hear all of the loudmouths on our floor and their children. We had an adjoining room with strangers who apparently liked to talk as loud as they could...oh wait there was a reason for that...THE BLARING TELEVISION THEY HAD ON. And then there was the mystery vent. There was a vent that was over the bed and we could hear every word from what I am assuming was the room above us. While noisy, disrespectful guests aren't the hotel's problem, the fact that there was no attempt for aural privacy in the rooms is inexcusable. I didn't call the front desk because frankly I didn't want to move rooms, I was exhausted from traveling around to see family and driving constantly. I had to turn the fan on to drown out the noise and catch some zzz's.
Other than that, it was a great hotel and I would reccommend it to anyone who wants a good location and a quality hotel.
