Great location just a block from the harbor. The hotel is clean and has a friendly staff. The lobby bar does not open until 5 pm which pushes you to the adjacent MC Spiedo restaurant for a drink. Also nice folks but not as nice of a bar. When the Ren's lobby bar does open it is staffed by some...

We checked into hotel and had no problems, Didn't get name of person at desk. Room was handicap accessible. Spacious beautiful room. It looked like it was recently refurbished. The room did not have view, but, you could see the water reflected in the adjoining building. It sounds strange, but it was really very nice. We were surprised when we...

Not only is this hotel extremely comfortable with generous room sizes, the restaurant serves excellent food with topnotch service by staff. After a fire alarm at 3am, the entire staff including the manager Ken Lavigne was available at the lobby next morning to answer questions, discuss events, and offer any help to guests. We were offered complimentary breakfast, and gratefully...

Located conveniently close to the congress center this clean and modern hotel comes with a decent bar, a good breakfast selection (on the weekend) and a great view if your room is facing the right way. However, the ~25 m pool is not deep - actually a stretched bathtub & the sauna does not really get hot. Also the basic...

Stayed here during a conference which was taking place in the convention centre. It's only a 5 mins walk over the bridge to the convention centre and was worth the discount than the adjoining hotel. Had a nice clean gym, welcoming lobby with very courteous and friendly staff. The major impressing factor for me were the Aveda toiletries! The room...

Thanks to our Marriott status, we were upgraded to a junior suite upon check-in. The suite was roomy and clean, with a lovely modern bathroom and oh-so-comfortable king-size bed. Aveda products in the bath were also a nice touch. Some of the furnishings were worn, but I imagine this can be expected of any large hotel in a city setting,...

All of the staff was very friendly! Room was average size but had great views of the waterfront. Room service was decent. Location is perfect for conferences at nearby hotels and convention center. A bit "far" if you want to be in Downtown Boston.

Great location, friendly staff. Nice restaurants within walking distance, and the Silver Line stop is right outside the door, so getting to & from the airport is a breeze. I would definitely stay here again when I am back in Boston.

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....
