If you have the money, stay there....If you don't wan to spend the money, find something else!
It's a nice hotel, but definately over priced. Not even the internet was included in the 260 USD / night (special show rate). Nor the breakfast.

Granted, it is not in the middle of the thick of Boston's best, but I do like it's location, the fact it is quiet, it overlooks the water, and it gives me a reason to walk everyday to get to where the real deal is. It is very convenient to the Convention Center, which is the real reason I enjoy using this hotel when I am in town for a meeting.

The staff is always courteous, I have always been pleased with the fitness equipment/facility and the breakfast is good. Not a big fan of the dinner menu at 606, but this place is close to a legal seafoods, a legal test-kitchen, salvatores and a sports bar. A 10 to 15 minute walk (or longer) can put you across the water and into some really great restaurants as well.

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
