To be a full service business hotel, you need to offer real room service. After a long flight, ironing for the next morning, and I can pick from is a handful of items that get delivered in a paper bag with plastic utensils. Sorry, but I expect more for a hotel next to a major convention center. Sure, there are...

Was here in October 2016 for a four-night pleasure stay. Great hotel. Check-in was easy (though the line was a bit long). If you're a Marriott Rewards member, Wifi is complimentary; otherwise, one must pay a daily fee for it. The concierge upgraded me to the higher-speed internet for free. I had a room on a high floor so there...

There is a nice gym, restaurant and bar area. we ate in the restaurant twice, each time it was good! The rooms are a nice size with comfortable beds. I found the air to be very dry, I wish...

I stayed here over the weekend with a few friends who were in town visiting. The hotel is beautiful and in a very convenient location. Ilda (I think that was her name) checked us in at the front desk. She was the first person we spoke to here and she was wonderful. She was friendly, personable, and extremely professional. I...

Just got back from a wonderful stay at the Renaissance Boston Waterfront. I booked online through the Marriott site. I requested 2 double beds and this when I made my reservation. But when I got my confirmation it was no longer guaranteed. One call to the hotel and it was fixed. Open arrival I asked if I could be upgraded...

I stayed here with my bridesmaids and friends for my bachelorette weekend. It was the perfect location for everything we did. We either took a cab or short uber to everything that we didn't want to walk to. The hotel was clean and comfortable. I would stay here again.

I would recommend this hotel for anyone looking for a room in the Seaport District. Great location close to all restaurants. The checkin was smooth and everyone was friendly. The room had a great view of the water and airport. Clean and comfortable beds. It is not a 5 star hotel but it is nice. There is valet service along...
