Westin Boston Waterfront

Boston, USA

The hotel

In the thriving Seaport District, this feature-packed hotel’s just steps from one of neighbourhood’s biggest draws, The Lawn on D. The outside comes in at The Westin Boston Waterfront too, with its lobby greeting you with natural stone and wood, a vertical garden, and leafy trees. Delve deeper and you’ll find 4 bars and restaurants, each sharing its own take on all-American dining: there’s the contemporary slant at Sauciety, the Irish-American pub twist at MJ O’Connor’s, American grill favourites at Birch Bar, and local light bites at City Bar. When you’ve had your fill of the food, the Westin’s Laugh Boston comedy club presents local and national acts. And, if Boston’s sightseeing highlights don’t eat up every second of your trip, there’s always the indoor pool and whirlpool, fitness studio, and group runs guided by a ‘RunWESTIN Concierge’.

It's rare to find a hotel where slamming doors in the hallway don't wake you up, but this one is really not obvious. The city skyline views are gorgeous as well. The bed/pillows are comfortable. Plenty of places to charge phone, smart watch, and laptop. One lamp required the light switch on to charge, lesson learned day 1. :) My first… Read more

Plenty of places to charge phone, smart watch, and laptop. One lamp required the light switch on to charge, lesson learned day 1. :) My first day, I realized I didn't bring a brush, as my hair was soaking wet the first morning. I called the concierge, and Debra was super helpful, got me one from the gift shop, and delivered it to my room. I like the soda water/water and ice machines on each floor, easy to find and a great option. The staff were friendly that I interacted with. It was an easy walk to restaurants, and the driveway into the hotel is long, allowing safe dropoff and pickup. Read less

The Westin was alright. First entering the lobby was beautiful. What a entrance! Check in was a breeze, we had booked through hotels.com and everything was ready to go. 13th floor 😐 but all was good. Pretty decent view however lots of construction so that’ll change I’m sure soon. Beds were TINY! That was disappointing, comfortable but very… Read more

Pretty decent view however lots of construction so that’ll change I’m sure soon. Beds were TINY! That was disappointing, comfortable but very small. I found the hotel to be very clean and convenient to our needs for the weekend. Read less

We came to stay at this hotel for the night. We drove and the parking lot which is under the hotel was quite worrisome. First the parking lot does not have any security and it was dark. When we arrived we were unsure if there was sufficient spaces for the guests. As a woman with travels the parking should have better lighting and security. I felt… Read more
We came to stay at this hotel for the night. We drove and the parking lot which is under the hotel was quite worrisome. First the parking lot does not have any security and it was dark. When we arrived we were unsure if there was sufficient spaces for the guests. As a woman with travels the parking should have better lighting and security. I felt quite unsafe and I did make a comment to the worker who checked us in but nothing was done. In addition the bed had ripped sheets, which was very distasteful. I would not go this hotel, I do not think the location was helpful in sightseeing nor did I enjoy the hotel. Read less

This was our second visit. Stayed two nights this time. Had a great stay. Rooms were ready on arrival. We parked on the street first night since we arrived after 8 to save on parking and used their garage for the second night.

We parked on the street first night since we arrived after 8 to save on parking and used their garage for the second night. Hotel was very clean, however we did see a mouse scurry in the lobby our last night. I wouldnt say they have a rodent problem and probably a one off as we spent a good amount of time in the lobby. But management should be aware. I would stay here again but they do need to address that. Read less

Stayed here after a Celtics game. It's kind of off the beaten path (can't get there by public transport). But overnight parking was included and what a value! Lovely room, super clean. Easy check-in and check-out. But most of all... the most comfortable beds ever. I slept nearly ten hours and my son slept nearly twelve! Fantastic bedding as well.… Read more

Only thing that let it down -- and this is a really small thing -- is the bathroom toiletries... the shampoo & conditioner are poor quality. Still, would go back there again (& again). Read less
