My family and I spent several days as tourists in Boston. The Renaissance provided a great experience. The concierge lounge was great, the staff was very hospitable. Our room was great-spacious and clean. The only area that was less than perfect was the pool/hot tub. The hot tube was not hot at all. I was also hoping the pool was...

This was the second time we've stayed here for the Boston Marathon, and again it was wonderful. The atmosphere is upscale and the staff is the friendliest of any place we've ever been. The rooms are very nice and spacious. They provide transportation to Boston Commons the morning of the race, which was perfect. And, they allow us to shower...

Well appointed room with view over the harbour. Bed comfy (for me) and a/c worked perfectly. Staff friendly but this is a really busy hotel. Found the bar and breakfast expensive. There is a Starbucks on-site and a really great breakfast place just around the corner with excellent choice and free coffee. Ask the guy on the front door where...

The room had a good view, was clean and the hotel was located in the Seaport district, which makes it close to all the harbor related destinations and activities in Boston. But, the people on the front desk and concierge were not very helpful, the towels were the roughest ever seen and felt, the beds uncomfortable, the room service awful,...

Have stayed here several times and this has become a new favorite. Good selection of restaurants nearby and staff is friendly and efficient. Bell hop offered a bottle of water while I was checking in. Little things like that make the stays enjoyable and earn a positive recommendation.

Stayed at the Renaissance Boston Waterfront Hotel to attend the (lackluster) Flower and Garden show at the nearby Seaport World Trade Center which was just a short walk away. .The room was typical, very clean and the beds were a bit firmer than we are used to in hotels but not uncomfortable. Hallway chatter came through the doors but no...

Located in the Seaport district, this hotel isn't in the traditional tourist areas of Boston. If your looking for downtown, Quincy Market or the TD Garden, this hotel is at least a mile plus away or about $8 or $10 Lyft. However, the Seaport is becoming a Boston business hub and the hotel is within walking distance of the Boston...

I just spent five nights here, and greatly enjoyed my stay. My room was large, very clean, comfortable and quiet. Wi-fi is very good, and it's not one of those annoying systems that makes you log in again every day of your stay. The lounge on the 20th floor had a nice breakfast. The hotel is a very short walk...

I recently had a conference at the convention center, so I stayed here for work and absolutely loved it. First off, they gave me a corner room with really nice views of the water which was great. Secondly, the rooms were fairly large and the bed was comfy. A lot of hotel rooms are so dark, but this room had...

The Renaissance Boston Waterfront remains the best Marriott property in the city of Boston. The room decor is modern and comfortable. There is a sitting area with enough room to actually walk in the room. The bathrooms have a large standing shower vs. a bath tub/shower combo. Housekeeping does a great job keeping the rooms nice and clean. The recent...
