4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The hotel was lovely. On arrival you were handed bottled, iced water, which was very welcome as it was in the grip of a heatwave. The staff were very attentive and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble. The room was on the 7th floor with a waterfront view. It was clean and smart. Any problems we did have were dealt... More

I stayed in the hotel for 9 nights to attend a course which was held in the same hotel. The location is excellent as it is of walking distance to a variety of restaurants and the waterfront. There is a nearby stores and hubway bicycle station. Reaching the hotel from Logan airport is easy and free using the silver line.... More

I usually think of Renaissance Hotels as having their hey-day in the 90s, and I thought the hotel would be tired and outdated. I was pleasantly surprised to find a vibrant hotel. The Good: The staff is extremely nice and accommodating even when we were running late and in need of a late check-in. I also like the location. Oh,... More

We stayed at the Renaissance for one night to go to the Boston Comic Con. We liked the location--we were within walking distance to a lot of restaurants and the Comic Con venue. The room was nice and we had a great view of Logan Airport--I think watching the planes come and go was our favorite part. The bathroom was... More

So let me start with the good parts of this hotel. The staff is super friendly and helpful and the rooms clean, ok in size and fresh. The bar was cool, serves food late and the bartenders are awesome. My hold ups are these: paying for WiFi. Really? In today's day, this should be free. I get the exorbitant charge... More

I recently stayed at the Renaissance for a conference and I had a great experience that included supreme service, awesome food, and very good conference facilities. The conference held 200 people and the hotel hosted another small conference, the same time. The hotel is in a great location in the Seaport district. While here, try Legal Harborside for a great...

Spent 2 nights here, & must say that I have few complaints ( if any). Very clean, modern hotel, within walking distance to the Seaport district. Rooms were spacious & updated, & I never heard any noise coming from other rooms, which is a plus when traveling. The bathrooms are a bit small, and the lighting could be improved, but... More

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.
