“Cool decor and great location”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

I didn't stay here but attended a conference. Really courteous and helpful staff and great amenities. Food they served for lunch and snacks was delicious. Looks brand new; well maintained and fun decor! I'd definitely stay here if I didn't already live in Boston!

I recently had my wedding at this location. This hotel is perfect! I wanted a wedding on the water but didn't want to break the bank. Ashley was the coordinator and she was outstanding! She helped us every step of the way! If anyone is looking into a Boston Wedding, I HIGHLY recommend the Renaissance Boston Waterfront Hotel.

stayed here for a conference that was held in the hotel. The room was large and comfortable. We were on the 6th floor -- very quiet.

Pleasant surprise -- no minibar. This was good because we had dinner at Legal's Test Kitchen next door and had room for the left overs in the small refrigerator.

This is a high end neighborhood, consequently the prices are all inflated. There was a starbucks in the hotel lobby as well as another starbucks in the lobby of the office building across the street.

Comfortable, high quality 4 star hotel with very helpful staff Breakfast was outstanding but very expensive ($50 for two of us) with no local alternative. In terms of dinner there are only sports bars locally. You have to pay for WiFi but could use a computer in the bar area. Within easy public transport of the town centre and the airport.

Room Tip: The higher the better. Best with a view over the harbour.

The hotel is a typical Renaissance, 4 stars, outside the city but with easy access to anywhere. In any case 20 minutes walking to Quincy Market area and other central areas. The restaurants around are funny and good ones

Room Tip: Do not stay in the 20 floor in the room behind the launge, is to noicy at 11:00 and at 06:00

Hotel was what you would expect from Marriott/Renaissance. Good service, nice amenities, up to date, clean. I stayed for 5 nights while attending a conference at the convention center. The room was nicely decorated, with a partial view of waterfront/bay, but nothing spectacular, view of most of the city is blocked by another building. Walking distance to the convention center, and several nearby restaurants. However, if you want to see the sights in town it will require a cab or some other form of transportation, and with a city like Boston, I doubt you would want to spend all your time in this rather isolated area of town. Room service was good and prompt, and as others have indicated, Starbucks on first floor for coffee and quick breakfast. I would stay again, if going to a conference at the convention center, but there are many more convenient nice hotels to stay at if you want to get a better feel for what Boston has to offer.

No complaints at all about this hotel. My wife and I arrived at the hotel after a long flight from England. At the airport we boarded a "T" bus which took us to within 100 yards of the hotel and the ride was free! Check in was straightforward and we had a room on the 11th floor which was spacious and clean. Spa and gym were excellent. Location is a 30 minute walk from the centre. Breakfast was excellent particularly the cold buffet and service was good. It is easy to get around and I would definitely this hotel.
