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’.

We just stayed here this past weekend as a little getaway with our teenage daughters. (They were in a separate room, lol). It was a terrific weekend, and we enjoyed our time at the Westin very much! Given current covid travel restrictions, it was nice to escape (even locally) for a weekend of good food, good weather and a change of scenery! We would definitely return, and the few folks with whom we interacted were all exceptionally helpful and kind. Insider Tip: The family were huge fans of the baked everything pretzels available from the bar as a late-night snack! ;) Read less

I always look forward to staying at this hotel because the bar staff is so friendly and articulate, especially Colin, As a wine drinker, I'm happy with their selection of both red and white wines at reasonable prices, and the wines pair well with the bar menu items. Also appreciate the relaxing ambiance in the bar area and the attentive service.

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
