I'm a Marriott Gold member. I used points to reserve one night at this hotel for my parents before they departed on a celebratory retiremnt cruise through New England. I sent an email to the hotel telling them it was for my parents and if there was any way they could upgrade them to a nice room for the night...

Stayed here for a conference and the location is perfect. However, the check in people didn't go out of their way to welcome us when we arrived. The gentleman at the door did a better job. the room is not my taste, not quite sure what theme they are going for but the decor is not my cup of tea....

Dear Scott, Thank you for taking the time to review your recent visit to the Renaissance Boston Waterfront.

Great rooms, ok but not great room service menu but the towels are like they are from Motel 6. Stayed there twice hoping the first time was a fluke but the second time was the same. Not sure how they can be as rough as they are when the rest of the hotel is great. For $299 per night I...

I stayed here for a business meeting (others were at the Westin across the walkway - about 10 minutes) and had a small but comfortable room with a harbor view. I didn't get upgraded to the Club level as a Platinum member but did have key access so it was fine. Wi-fi was fast and free as an elite member....

This is a nice hotel and the concierge Eisha is one of the best we ever encountered. Very nicely appointed and clean rooms. If you are in town for a convention or other business in this area it's a great location. However, for vacationers, you are at least one mile from anywhere in the downtown area, so unless you are...

We stayed at this hotel for a wedding on the Boston Harbor. Great location, staff was very friendly, and our room had a great view of the wedding venue. Many hotels within walking distance and very convenient to the airport. Another great Marriott experience.
