Stayed one night with my husband. Very nicely appointed room (I think they upgraded us when we checked in) on the street side, which wasn't as noisy as I'd anticipated. The only thing missing in the room was a box of tissues (there was an empty box cover, but no tissues) and a shower cap (I had brought one with me, so problem solved, but still).… Read more

The only thing missing in the room was a box of tissues (there was an empty box cover, but no tissues) and a shower cap (I had brought one with me, so problem solved, but still). Right near Chinatown so food choices were no problem. Staff was super friendly and knew my frustration at the whole Game of Thrones thing but tried suggesting different ways to access, which I appreciated (I did manage to stream it eventually). And the bed was super comfortable. Really almost a five circle review. Read less

Let me preface this review by disclosing that I am Titanium Elite in the Marriott rewards program, so that may have factored into my experience. I stay at Mariott portfolio hotels across the country on a frequent basis, and W Boston has turned into one of my favorite to visit. I don't leave glowing reviews at most hotels I stay at. I've stayed at W Boston several times. No property is perfect, but W Boston has made any shortcoming right. Julian at the front desk is excellent; his customer service is on point, and he went above and beyond on several occasions to make sure my stays were the best they could be. Breakfast at the Gallery beats most hotel-associated breakfasts hands down. Not the cheapest breakfast if you're paying, but their Huevos Rancheros is excellent. Saturday night DJ is actually quite popular at this property, unlike my experiences at W New York Times Square. Read less

The rooms at the W have just been completely renovated and they are great. I also enjoyed the gym and it has a lot of cardio machines yet few others. There is a full set of free weights and two benches. The restaurant was perfect for breakfast and the staff is very pleasant.

We had our wedding reception at the W Boston and it was an incredible experience from the urban, modern hotel decor to the W team, to the food and beverages. No need to upgrade any of the decor because it is all chic and modern. My husband and I did not have a traditional wedding, we got married in a small family ceremony and then met our 120 guests at the W Boston, Mezzanine level for our wedding reception which was basically a big party. We had food for guests from the minute they waled in at 7 PM until they left at Midnight. No seated dinner tables, it was station after station and open seating. We had DJ and open bar all night. BIG SHOULT OUT to our chef who held an amazing menu tasting for us and helped to customize every item on the menu and BIG SHOUT OUT TO our wedding coordinator Brianne who is so so good at what she does. From the moment we met her we knew we were in good hands and she did not miss a single detail. The W also recently renovated all guest rooms so our wedding guests had new updated trendy rooms to stay in. The quality and service of this hotel is unmatched. If you are looking for a 'New York' style not-basic vibe, the W is worth exploring. Read less
