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’.

My only real grievance is that the hotel's restaurant is open only for a very basic breakfast currently. There are other options on site that are perfectly acceptable not to mention you can get nearly anything delivered If you don't wish to venture out. Read less

Just a bit out from the central area. New building and comfortable cleaned rooms. No noise and very close to the exhibition center where I was attending an international meeting. The gym easy to be found and equipment was perfectly working and cleaned. Just the general atmosphere was a bit cold, in other words soulless. Check in very fast and… Read more

Mar 12, 2020 Pathfinder476103 Spokane, Washington

The Westin Boston Waterfront property is located walking distance to Old Boston waterfront where many restaurants & bisto's are located and near the Black Falcon Cruise Terminal. The hotel's well appointed spacious rooms are an added plus. The coffee shop and fine dining restaurant located in the hotel has something for everyone.

We payed about $200 a night for a king bed 15th floor room at the Westin during February/March 2020.

We payed about $200 a night for a king bed 15th floor room at the Westin during February/March 2020. The real selling point for this hotel is that if you are attending an event at the BCEC during the Winter, the Westin has a bridge to the convention center so you do not have to go outside. Our stay at the hotel was below average, which is why I gave it two stars. Check in is pretty late, check out is at an average time. Has a nice lobby. Our room was very basic, but clean for the most part, however, I called the front desk on our first night and requested an extra blanket - two hours and three phone calls later I was told, "we have no more blankets, or towels." I understand that it was a busy convention weekend but the hotel wasn't blindsided by this, they knew the hotel was sold out and they didn't have enough blankets or towels. I was just really appalled and unimpressed by the lack of amenities. My friend who stayed with me said he had better experiences at the Holiday Inn. Read less
Image of the Tripadvisor rating Great hotel, ridiculous parking cost

Feb 29, 2020 drgreeley Belchertown, Massachusetts

The hotel and guest room was as expected, very nice. Comfy bed and pillows, very clean. Overnight parking for guest was $44 which is ridiculous. Although we were there for a conference, we received a discount voucher for $32, IF, you used valet. I’ll look to park, and maybe stay elsewhere next trip.
