“Nice Hotel Experience”
Reviewed April 16, 2014

Hotel is on the new side and comfortable and the service was excellent. I was meeting my daughter in Boston and they allowed her to check in super early (8 AM). Enjoyed the complimentary upgrades to concierge lounge and free internet that comes with Marriott Rewards Gold. There are a lot of dining options nearby and the central part of downtown is a short (approximately $10) cab ride away. For proximity to downtown and the amenities, it was very reasonable.

Our recent trip to this hotel was a pleasureable one. The front desk staff was curtious and attentive and provided us with a waterview room. The colors of the carepet were a little "bright" but overall the room was nicely decorated and updated fixtures/bathroom. There was no tub, only a stall shower but it was modern and clean. We had a problem with room service and after several calls it was resolved and taken off our bill so I can't complain, only wish they had gotten it correct the first time. It was a little further than I realized from the theatre distric but we were there in just a short cab ride. We would certainly return next time we are in if there are any specials going on.

The Renaissance is a relatively new hotel taking advantage of the economic revival occurring along Boston's waterfront. It has excellent accommodations, first class bar and restaurant and a well equipped gym/spa. In short everything you need for an enjoyable stay along the harbor. That said, the area is still growing and while there are several hotels and fine restaurants, there are also warehouses and open space and you're a good hike to the downtown. Still plenty of cabs and the"T" is a quick step away, so you are well connected. The staff was friendly and professional, really no complaints, just a great hotel.

The location was really good, close to both the airport and a short walk/cab to the core.
The room was comfortable, but for my stay the wifi was a bit spotty.

The staff were very responsive and fixed a maintenance issue quickly.
The lap pool was awesome to exercise enough and offset the great food Boston has to offer.

From the nice man who took our bags at the front door, to the nice man who hailed our last cab, this hotel has the very best staff I have ever met. I want to especially call attention to Kaitlin Sampson at the front desk and to Bonnie Latty, the concierge. These two ladies are so professional, gracious and helpful. They made everything so easy, so personal and very pleasant. We are so grateful for the wonderful care they took of myself and my mother. My 80 year old mother had never been to Boston, so she was very excited to see all the sights. Bonnie arranged everything, gave us excellent tips and smoothed the way. Kaitlin was there everyday of our stay and we enjoyed checking in with her - we had questions or small problems and she consistently took care of everything with a smile.

One of our sightseeing trips was an all-day adventure. We did not stop to eat or drink while we were having so much fun. When we got back to the hotel we were a mess! Kaitlin sent us to your bar, where a very kind young lady got us water and lunch and was just so very kind to us. She was working there late in the afternoon of Sunday April 6th, but I did not remember to get her name.

I was there for the eCW Enterprise meeting. There again, the accommodations, food and staff were excellent.

The food was delicious, the beds are wonderful, the room was very clean, and all the staff was so courteous and pleasant. We could not have asked for a better experience. Thank you so very much for all the attention to customer service that your hotel provides.

Room Tip: We asked for a view of the water - it was lovely.

Great spot! Rooms are nice, bar and restaurant serve good food, and the location is just a few blocks away from other great bars and restaurants. Would stay here again! The only downfall, we were there Friday through Sunday and the maids never came to clean our room, but not a big deal, everything else was good!

We checked in early our room was huge, and the room & bathroom were spotless! We had a great cocktails at the bar by the lobby. We enjoyed the atmosphere. We had a lovely view of the bay from our huge room. We went to the restaurant for breakfast. MC Speido was lovely except the ketchup! Breakfast is delicious with Heinz 57! They make their own ketchup it was pink! All vinegar and sugar. Not smooth but chunky! I ordered the Lobster Benedict. My poached eggs were way over cooked no runny yolk. The lobster, potatoes, hollandaise sauce and polenta were cooked deliciously. The pancetta was supposed to be served with the meal it came out on a separate plate halfway thru the meal. The coffee was good and the place was slow so we had servers every few minutes seeing if we needed anything. The decor & atmosphere were amazing! Very fun big booths and lovely ambience. The hotel as a whole was great but the restaurant is a different story!

Room Tip: The corner rooms were a little bigger not by much though.
