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’.

If you're staying here for a convention, ok - after all, it is a convention hotel. It's really big, decent lobby, decent staff, decent rooms. But, it's very cookie cutter, and nothing special. If not traveling for a convention, you can likely find much better. Oh, and it is close the airport, so plus for that.

Loved the lobby area and huge screen with nature scenes - so relaxing. The indoor trees were beautiful. The staff was amazing and the beds so comfortable I slept very well. It is not in the hub of the city but there is a hop on hop off trolley stop in front of the hotel.

I had an awesome experience. The staff emailed me a few days prior to my arrival to welcome me and introduce themselves. They offered to help with anything I may need during my stay. They invited me to a happy hour while I was staying at the hotel. The staff were super nice. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay.
