My first trip to Boston in over 10 years, we were very fortunate to have booked accommodation in The Renaissance Boston Waterfront Hotel, what a wonderful hotel with excellent facilities including an excellent Restaurant and also surrounded by excellent Riverside Restaurants, most within walking distance from the hotel, a novelty we thoroughly enjoyed was the River Taxi into Boston City...

Great hotel in "Financial area" of Boston. Obviously new and thus clean with all modern amenities. Very simply chic. However, it is the personnel that set this hotel apart. Everyone from the check-in clerks to the consierge go out of their way to accommodate your personal needs. Do not miss the Italian restaurant, Spiedo, in the hotel lobby - awesome,...

Never stayed on the waterfront and was pleasantly surprised how much I liked it. The waterfront is a mix of mostly very new hotels and restaurants but you can also easily walk across the bridge into old Boston (which we did several times). You really can't beat this location and I was happy to pay $30 per 24 hours for...

I really enjoyed staying at this hotel despite it's expensive parking, however it's nothing outside of the norm for a large city. Great location and I particularly liked the waterfront view from my room. I stayed in all executive suite which was very spacious and had a sink and refrigerator. I ordered food from the bar downstairs several times and...

I am currently sitting on the window ledge of my 20th floor room overlooking the water and the beautiful city of Boston. I just completed my second night here and will very sadly be checking out.

Plus points: 1. Proximity to convention center, 2. Silver line (SL1) bus stop right behind - free transfer to Logan Airport, 3. Great view of the waterfront - the rooms with smaller number are nearer to the waterfront side of the hotel, 4. Executive lounge on the 20th floor is fantastic! Great staffs, nice drinks & snacks - Hors D'oeuvres...

You can get a pretty good bargain here if you pay in advance: for us it was about half the standard rate. Hotel is very well located, quiet, good service. We didn't eat in the hotel, so can't comment on the food service, but otherwise very nice. 5th floor lap pool is a unique feature and a well-run and equipped...

Great location with city and harbor views, helpful and friendly staff, delicious food onsite and in nearby restaurants, clean and attractive rooms and common areas, not as close to historical sites but taxi cabs and tour buses abound.

This area has been expanding and becoming more and more popular, for good reason. Not surprisingly, the seaport district of South Boston is located beautifully along the water.
