Although Westin Boston is quite far from the touristic places it is a good hotel choice for Boston! The place is quite clean and staff is nice! It's close to a metro station, around 5 minutes from downtown!

The hotel is very convenient, staff is very professional and helpful but the King Bedroom accommodations need extreme improvement. Our room accommodation was horrible. No sleep for two nights. The bathroom is very small, toilet seat needed repair, the tub/shower area would not drain (4 inches of water accumulated when taking a shower), the night stand light did not work...

This is your typical hotel. CLose your eyes and you wouldn't know if it was any different than other chains. The Starbucks in the lobby is nice alogn with the gym. The rooms were a little small but overall fair place.

The communication (emails) with the hotel is great, always a prompt and kind reply. We were very tired after a 7 hour drive and waited over 15 minutes for check-in. Lots of people and only 2 counters open. When it was our turn, service was perfect. Room was nice but nothing special. As expected clean, quiet heat/ac, good shower pressure,...

I stayed at the Westin for when I ran the 2017 Boston Marathon. It was a truly great experience. There was a shuttle the morning of the race to take me to the bus pickup location. This was very convenient and lessened race day stress. Additionally, there's a Starbucks in the lobby, which is open early enough in the morning...

The Westin hotel is very nice and exciting to stay in, it's huge and you can stay there for many nights without getting tired of it. It's in the center of Boston, so you're around everything, walking wise. Very expensive hotel, rooms, and food. Only flaw.
