The W is as you would expect. It has a modern feel in both the lobby and rooms, as is usually the case. The concierge were very helpful in recommending restaurants and things to do. I also heard, but have not tried, their restaurant Market is supposed to be excellent.
This is generally as far as it goes. They do not offer a pool or other amenities that would make it a more enjoyable stay, like the Westin does with their new balance rental program. Im not sure why starwood has not rolled this program out to every hotel, allowing a workout no matter if you planned one or not.
The W is near the common and theatre district if youre looking for a close hotel to this area. I think staying closer to back bay would be better as there are shops, restaurants and a more lively crowd walking the area.
Overall it's a good hotel but nothing really stands out. If you want a trendy hotel near the common and theatre district it works well as a crash spot.
