The hotel is beautiful and the location offers plenty of lunch and dinner options. The subway is close. One sightseeing bus parks a side of the hotel. Good morning running area (not as Commonwealth or the river). They will charge you a resort fee and parking fee that will add up more than $50, but there is good service in...

pretty basic for a Marriott Renaissance yet clean, convenient location and a professional staff . The seaport district location is excellent for business or pleasure. Do wish they had a shuttle though.

Nice hotel, bar was fine downstairs. Staff was good. Near airport. Clean room. I don't have anything to complain about for a one night stay. South Boston has a lot of constitution right now so not a ton of walkable stuff

The staff and the level of service provided at the Renaissance is the reason we returned for our now-annual trip to the Boston area. From the moment you arrive, you're treated like royalty, and the staff will do anything within their power to take great care of you. A standout on this trip was the bartender, Allan. An Ireland native...

We found the restaurant delightful, just off the Boston harbour waterfront , unfortunately no direct views over the waterfront. The cuisine is Italian style but other tastes are catered for. The service was prompt...

Room has very comfortable beds and very inviting shower in bath. Great large flat screen TV with accessible streaming built in (including direct Netflix...

The room was very comfortable. We were on the 7th floor with a view of the city and harbor. The staff was very helpful giving ideas to see the city and made sure our taxi was there for our early departure to the airport.

A simple hotel, close to the Boston Convention Centre. very few amenities for the rate charged. Simple lobby, Starbucks on site. Rooms are of decent size and comfortable. A couple of resturants / bars available.

Two night stay here for a business meeting in the Seaport district. The hotel was very nice. The lobby was nice. Great drinks. The hotel was walking distance to a lot of great restaurants. Plenty of places to eat and drink within about a half mile radius.

Nice open lobby and bar space for evening drinks. Rooms are average, but great location within walking distance of everything. Check in was easy & staff very friendly. Great hotel for a quick weekend girls getaway in the city.
