We stayed here for two nights at the end of August prior to departing on a cruise to New England and Canada. This hotel was perfectly situated for us. We took advantage of the FREE transportation via city bus from the airport that dropped us off 1/2 block from the hotel and found that we were no further than 1/2...

When we arrived a bit early she found a room available for us and when we needed to check out a little later she accommodated us as well. The concierge helped us book a bus tour. Room was comfortable with a great view of the water. We had...

this property was great. So close to the convention center and there are some great places to eat within a short walk of the hotel. The staff here was so helpful and I look forward to returning here to stay again when at the convention center.

friendly employees and good service. It was an easy walk to the convention center from the hotel. If you aren't traveling to Boston for a convention, this one is a bit off the beaten path. Hotel lounge and restaurant were both good and there's a full service Starbucks in the lobby. LuzLondono :)

We do not normally stay in the South End, but this was an overnight trip to take our daughter back to college, and the Renaissance offered the best price anywhere in Boston for a four-star hotel for the weekend, so we gave it a try.
