Stayed here for two nights with some friends for a guy's weekend. I had a really good experience from start to finish. Actually, probably one of the best hotel experiences I have ever had. Nothing extraordinary made my experience so go well, but everything just 'worked'. No surprises, no problems, and no complaints whatsoever.
We had two "Wonderful" rooms, each with two queen beds. The rooms were big, clean, had the familiar W style, and everything else you would expect being at a W.
The bathroom was great - plenty of room and very clean. The toilet is in a separate "room", which I don't understand why more hotels don't do that. It is a great feature. My only semi-complaint is that there is only a perforated screen between the bathroom and the room. So there was really very little privacy once you got out of the shower. Not a huge deal, but could be awkward under some circumstances.
I'm definitely not very familiar with Boston - but I can get around. So, from my relatively limited point of view, I thought the hotel was in a great location. Close enough to walk to Newbury Street, Boston Common, etc. There is a little food court across the street that had some good places to grab a bite, too. The bar in the lobby is pretty cool and has plenty of scenery, but bring your wallet.
Although I didn't use it, the fact that they charge $14.95 a day for WiFi is insane. The cheaper Starwood properties have free WiFi, but the nice (expensive) ones overcharge you for it. And don't even get me started on the prices for the minibar.
