this property was great. So close to the convention center and there are some great places to eat within a short walk of the hotel. The staff here was so helpful and I look forward to returning here to stay again when at the convention center.

friendly employees and good service. It was an easy walk to the convention center from the hotel. If you aren't traveling to Boston for a convention, this one is a bit off the beaten path. Hotel lounge and restaurant were both good and there's a full service Starbucks in the lobby. LuzLondono :)

We do not normally stay in the South End, but this was an overnight trip to take our daughter back to college, and the Renaissance offered the best price anywhere in Boston for a four-star hotel for the weekend, so we gave it a try. I am sorry we are not staing longer! The property itself is wonderful - stunningly...

After a long day of sightseeing, I planned to go to bed around 11 as I had an early flight the next day. My room, 516, was over the ballroom, which had a wedding. I felt like the band was in my room. They played until 12:30. The front desk was highly unresponsive. When I asked for the manager, they...
