On our first stay at the W Boston, we were warmly and expertly greeted by Lenny at the curb. All the staff, from the curb to the room were friendly and professional. We really enjoyed the beautiful, modern, clean design of the hotel and our our room specifically. The terminology took a day or so to get used to (call "wheels" on your room phone instead of the valet, and find "wired" on the mezzaine level, instead of the business center), but it was cute, so we went with it. They also roll up the floor mats in the public areas mid-day to go from ones which say "good morning" to "good afternoon". It was walking distance to many things like shopping, certainly theatres if you're coming for any show, and easy to get their by car of the highway. I wish that we could have seen better pictures of the rooms from their website, because I might have splurged for the studio suite versus a roomy king room. Just getting square feet measurments from the central reservationist didn't give perspective.
Now, the lobby bar is a happening place come 6pm, and the perfect place for drinks with friends before a show or a night out. The cocktail waitresses are smoking hot in their littel black dresses (It's OK, I'm a gay guy), and just lend to the young, hip, sophisticated feel of the place at night.
I'm sure we'll be back, because they are opening a spa and a nighclub in the hotel (they opened in Oct '09). I'll probably spring for the suite during a spa weekend when everything is at our finger tips.
