Very nice hotel in an excellent location adjacent to the Boston Convention Center and waterfront. Staff are courtious and always willing to assist with travelers needs. Also a short walk or taxi ride to downtown.

I stayed two nights in the Westin Waterfront, after staying with a friend in Boston for the first 4 nights of my trip. This hotel was very up to date and clean. The front desk staff gave me an early check-in (9AM) and a room on the 10th floor facing the downtown skyline. The bathroom soap left my skin feeling smooth, clean and moisturized. The pool was a little weird, housed in a humid and warm pool room. The hotel is a little off the beaten path. If you stay there, you should walk to the silver line T station to start out your day, rather than making the trek to the south station T line. I unfortunately learned this on my last day. Overall I rate this hotel with 4 happy faces....I almost forgot, the bed was amazing!!!!

I stayed her for 4 days in August 2008. Here's my summary: Good Points: Easy access to/from Logan Airport on the T's Silver Line for $2. One block walk to hotel. Heavenly Bed. Heavenly Bath. Excellent access to Boston Convention and Exposition Center (NOT the Hynes Convention Center) via covered walkway. Hopping evening happy hour and cocktail scene in the lobby. The White Birch Martini is AMAZING! Fitness center is nice...pool is too small for laps though. Spacious rooms Not so Good: Forget the renowned Westin service. If you're a business traveler paying a pre-negotiated rate you won't receive anything but bare bones service. I asked for wake up calls for 4 mornings. I received one in return. Charge for high speed internet. I get it for free at Omni hotels just for signing up for their customer loyalty program. Get with program Westin... There are no amenities or entertainment nearby...A couple of restaurants in the area, but not really a safe area to walk in at night...Perhaps in a few years. Food prices are outrageous. I know it's a hotel restaurant, but for the quality, it's not worth it. Finally...RUDE staff. I guess they thought I was rude for having the temerity to ask to check my bags for a few hours before I left for the airport. The front desk clerk literally rolled her eyes and huffed when I asked. Housekeeping is sloppy. I left the room in better condition when I left each day then it was when I returned. No joke.
Westin provides a consistently excellent environment. pool was closed. fitness center is basic. could use tvs for individual viewing.

The hotel was nice and clean, organized. We did not eat in the restaurant, because there is too much good food and restaurants to be had in the city. I would have liked for the concierge desk to have had longer hours. 9-5 didn't always work for us. Some mornings we were up and gone before 9 and did not return until after 5. A stand in the lobby with pamphlets available on city attractions would have been nice so we could help ourselves to information. I like the shuttle to and from town. We used it several times. There are drinking glasses in the room, they are in the cabinet next to the refrigerator in the room - there was even a wine glass. No need for a cab. There is van transportaton every morning and evening. We are walkers and the Silver line of the MBTA is a very short walk [less than 5 minutes]. This gives you access to the entire city. Buy a City Day Pass or a Week Pass for unlimited rides. I was traveling with my adult daughther and we felt very safe walking from the Quincy Market/Faneuil Hall area at night.
