“Great Place for Touring”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2011

We stayed at the Renaissance Boston Waterfront the week of July 4th. It is very convenient because the Silver Line transit authority bus from the airport stops a 1/2 block from the back of the hotel, and it's quick. And it's easy to take this into the city for all your siteseeing. Very nice, newer hotel. Great location for foodies as there are a couple of terrific restaurants nearby, and an ice cream shop in the park across the street. The have very knowledgable concierges (they have a different name for them) right in the middle of the lobby to help with all your questions to get you started on where to go and what to do. It's a little farther from the action than the big downtown hotels, but you save on the rate, and getting to the subway line is easy. You're a block from the waterfront, with restaurants, etc. There's a great breakfast place around the corner that does take out. And a 7-11 and Duncan Donuts down the street. We could see the Roseway Schooner in the harbor from our room, which we toured on that night to watch the fireworks. Check them out, it's in town during the summer, and the crew will answer all your questions.

Room Tip: We had a water view room, which was pretty cool.

I had the pleasure of spending time at one of Marriott's elite hotels and I must say I was not desappointed with my stay. The hotel is beautiful and located around some great restaurants. The bedding at this hotel was one the most comfortable ones I have stayed. If there is down side to this hotel I would say it's the price of things like: Parking was $42.00 a day and the internet access in the room was another $12.95 If you stay for a week, it get to be expensive. The bar at the Hotel was very lively but the Hotel staff could stand to smile a litle at the frontdesk. I will stay there again if im ever in Boston again.

The hotel is nice, modern and clean. There is not much to do or wealk to in the area though. Leage Seafood was good, but not much else to see

The hotel is upscale and most convenient to restaurants and particularly the convention center, where the conference was held. While everything is done to accommodate guests, the $16.95 fee for an Internet connection in the room is really exhorbitant. Also, skip the $42 valet parking and park around the corner for $30.

Everything in this hotel looked brand new and it was spotlessly clean. The rooms were large and bright with wonderfully comfortable beds.

We stayed at this hotel after a 7 day cruise that ended in Boston. The hotel was very close to the port which made it easy to drop off our bags before venturing into Boston. Our room was a corner-unit and was nice, big, bright & clean with excellent city & bay views. The hotel is close to the Silver Line (public transportation) which takes you into the city and airport. Nice restaurants nearby with a Starbucks inside the hotel.

Room Tip: request corner-unit
