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 girlfriend and I decided to visit Boston to relax during her spring break since it was a very nearby location. For the extremely affordable price we paid, I am in awe at how incredible this experience was for the two of us. Not only is the lobby so colossal as you walk in, but it's breathtaking; the room we had was spacious and clean as well. Something I really appreciated was they had enough seating inside the room so that my girlfriend and I could actually eat at the desk together without me having to sit on my knees so my girlfriend could take the seat like at other hotels that we've visited. It was also nearby the aquarium, the Boston Common park, the Del Frisco's restaurant, and the Boston Tea Party Ship Museum, so we had a lot to do! Once our trip was coming to an end, my girlfriend and I continually found ourselves wishing we could return back; they even gave us complimentary early check-in AND late check-out, you really can't get better than that. The ONLY nitpick I could possibly have is that the pandemic caused a lot of their amenities to close like their Sauceity restaurant and their in-house Fedex, but that's not their fault at all and should in no way affect how you perceive your stay in my opinion!

The only thing missing was I thought that there was usually bottled water in the room??? We would definitely return. Read less

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.
