Never stay at this hotel. The valet crew took my car to park and when I went to get it back, it wouldn’t move as they busted the emergency brake. Hotel manager and valet crew would not taking any responsibility even though it’s clearly their fault.

I’m titanium elite with Marriott, this W Hotel doesn’t care about anyone. Stay somewhere else- anywhere else! Read less

The concierge was great and made fantastic recommendations. The gym is nice and the location is close to the parks and only a mile walk to the north end. The hotel and hallways were dark and could use a refresh.

I love the location of this hotel it’s very central in Boston walking distance to many attractions. I’m a bonvoy platinum member and I love the credit for breakfast you can choose to have it from room service! Had a little issue checking in they put me in a lower category than what I paid for and when I got to the room I realized it then I spoke to the front desk manager after we already moved and she said don’t worry will move you to the new room . But what if I Didn’t realize it?? They need to train the front desk staff! I didn’t use there parking garage because it was a rip off $60 plus tax a night when you can just download SpotHero and book much cheaper there . I parked at the ritz Carlton for 3 nights it was $54 ! One of the nights that we stayed unfortunately there was an incident with somebody pulled the fire alarm and woke the whole hotel up at 2 AM. Loved my suite I was on the 14th floor And it had an amazing view! The housekeeping staff is absolutely amazing they go above and beyond during your stay! Read less

Didn’t care for the coffee from the Nespresso machine in room, lobby coffee excellent. Get… Read more

If you want to sleep before 3 am do not stay here! Ridiculous priced over $700 and “the clubs let out” and there is music blaring and people are screaming for hours outside. They say the cops try to move them along but apparently that does nothing. Beyond horrible experience.
