We arrived at 9 am, after having had to get up at 4:30 am to catch a flight to Boston. While check in time is clearly listed as 3pm the wonderful desk clerk found us a room we could get into immediately ( at no extra charge for early check-in as we have experienced on a number of occasions elsewhere)....

Maybe this is now a thing but I've never experienced my in room dinner served in a bag with plastic cutlery. Weird. Cost cutting has reached new levels and for a high priced hotel it's very disappointing. It's a taxi ride to the centre of town so quite far out. Overall it's a typical chain hotel where the prices hike... More

I stayed here for a business meeting. The room was clean and spacious. The location is right by the harbor and many restaurants. The staff was accommodating and professional. I would highly recommend the Renaissance Waterfront Hotel.

I'm picky about hotels, and a bit of a germaphobe. But this hotel room felt relatively clean, bright, and in good condition. The conference rooms were nice as well, and the meals provided were fresh/decent, if not particularly healthy. Staff members were uniformly friendly and seemed happy to work here. I'd stay again without hesitation. (Only reason not giving 5... More

Attended a two-day conference and was impressed by the venue, rooms, sound, layout, etc. Conferences can be quite demanding so I always get the breakfast room service so I can be mentally prepared with a healthy start. I was quite surprised to see that the room service choices have drastically changed. Food items were not customized and from what I... More

Impressive hotel, just minutes from Boston Logan airport. Quick efficient checkin. Clean, well appointed room. The bathroom has Aveda products (very nice). Down side was the amount of time I had to wait on concierge. Even though she took her time with each guest, it took a long time to get a question answered. She was very knowledgable, but she...

I like higher-end Marriotts and thought I was booking this type of hotel experience. That is not the case. As a matter of fact, the Marriott logo is nowhere in evidence, although it is a Marriott and you can get Marriott points. Pros: Room and bathroom were large, large window with side view of waterfront, very pleasant check-in staff, mini-fridge.... More

I have stayed at this property for ten years in a row while attending an annual conference. While all venues in this area are spendy I have found in the past - that my stay was superb. I looked forward to room service for breakfast - a needed meal before a long and intense day. Each year - this was... More

Stayed here because it is across the street from John Hancock home office. Very nice hotel. The best thing was the bed. It was the most comfortable I have been on in a while. I had a king bed room. I liked the lounge type couch in the room. It made relaxing very good. The bathroom was a walk in... More

I have stayed at this hotel many times over the past 10 years (we hold an annual conference here.) They have recently, completely done away with their tray service room service, so now anything ordered comes to you in disposable take away containers with plastic. The dinner food was average to say the least. Breakfast the next morning - I... More

Staying in Seaport District / South Boston Waterfront

Neighborhood Profile
Seaport District / South Boston Waterfront
This area has been expanding and becoming more and more popular, for good reason. Not surprisingly, the seaport district of South Boston is located beautifully along the water. The area is designed for easy strolling along the HarborWalk, and there are bars and restaurants for all ages and budgets. The Institute of Contemporary Art is located in this area in a contemporary building with an absolutely stunning deck overlooking the water. In the summer time there are Friday music concerts on the deck of the museum. Nearby, there are many green spaces to enjoy.
