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’.

I liked this Westin--even more than Copley where my partner and I stayed the next week. Great location to the piers--which was critical for us. Right next door to the Convention Center, and near quite a few restaurants in an expanding area of town. Food at the bar was pretty good for a late night snack.

Bed (and pillows) was fantastic--even better than Copley in my opinion. While if you want to "see" Boston, it's not really in the most central place, but a comfortable walk or short Uber ride to the sites. Read less

We had a great stay at the Westin; great service, clean rooms and very comfortable stay. Great location and easy access to everything in the seaport. We have stayed here multiple times and will continue to book our future visits to the area here.

This isn’t the newest Westin, but it was still a great place to stay. The room was nice and clean. The bed is so comfortable. The hotel was fairly quiet when you are in your room, but there is a lot of activity in the lobby. I highly recommend it to folks staying in this area of Boston.

If you are attending a conference at the Boston Convention and Exposition Conference this hotel has an enclosed bridge to the center. The rooms are updated and well appointed, the staff is pleasant but given the location this is a busy, very active hotel.

I did last minute to get away with my fiancé for the weekend and we could not have chosen a better place. The room was clean and the views to the harbor was incredible, so the service. We will definitely be back. Thank you for your great service.
