"A very nice hotel overall"
The hotel is not directly on the water. It is about a block away but it is still a very nice hotel. The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. I was running a little behind and was not able to check out at the designated check out time. The hotel did not charge me anything additional for late check out. Parking in the area is very expensive. […] I had to park about a half mile down Congress Street to find parking that was a bit more reasonable but it did not bother me much.

Parking fee is high at $44.00. Room was average for such a high price!Genuine Expedia guest review
"good place to stay for conventions"
Like most Boston hotels, it is overpriced for what you get. In comparison to the Westin Copley Place, the amenities at the Renaissance were superior at a considerably lower price. However, they are fairly basic amenities for a mid-grade to higher end hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beautiful Hotel, Excellent Location!"
Stayed here for the extended Memorial Day Weekend to celebrate an Anniversary.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great place, convenient to the waterfront"
Another great stay at the Renaissance. Running 1/2 marathon the next morning started at 7:00, and being comfortable, and close, to the starting line was a win. Bar is very good, with knowledgeable and friendly servers.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect location for the personal event"
Everything was perfect--We found the hotel staff to be helpful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We'd never stayed at this property before but was so satisfied with the quality of service and overall cleanliness of the room & public areas that we'd definitely stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was just beautiful. It is located in a very nice part of the city close to a few good places to go eat and drink. The staff was very nice, and extremely willing to help. When I plan my next trip to Boston I will not think twice before booking with the Renaissance Boston Waterfront Hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"close to harbor sights and restaurants we wanted"
the room was spacious and clean with a lovely view of the harbor. Did not use bar or restaurant so can not speak to these amenities. Location was within walking distance of aquarium.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel for all with nice relaxing atmosphere."
Great hotel near the water. You can easily walk to wonderful restaurants nearby - just a few steps to Legal Seafood, which is a great place to eat with all kinds of fresh seafood entrees and also a delicious skirt steak. If you valet park, make sure that you call down and request your car be brought up before you go down stairs, otherwise you have a […] 20 minute wait till your car arrives from the garage. Other than that, beautiful hotel with a nice bar area and live music at night. They also have a great gym facility open 24 hours. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Can't imagine they did not serve a complimentary breakfast . Was a bit disappointed that.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Have your reservation confirmation info with you"
Everything except check-in process was great. At check in they attempted to put me into an inferior room from what I reserved. Took some forceful insistence and handing them my copy of my reservation confirmation before the, "I'm sorry we don't have any of those rooms available, all of them are already reserved" became a "I was able to find a room for […] you." Weird that one just happened to suddenly become available like that. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We had an awesome time. Everyone in the hotel was really nice and very accomidating to all of our needs and wants. We very much enjoyed our stay and look forward to coming back and staying here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It was in the perfect place for the St Pattys Day parade. We used the concierge 3 to 4 time each of the three days that we were there and they were right on steering us to super fun things to do. We loved the Irish pubs!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Another great weekend"
The front desk was superior. The navigator was so professional and helpful. Tracey is perfect for the job.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good to excellent but pricey hotel and dining"
This is a very good hotel, which it should be for the room rates and the cost of the meals in the dining room. Definitely not a bargain hotel by any means, but service was excellent, the room was clean, and reasonably quiet (the heating unit worked well and was quiet, which is rare in hotels). The bed was comfortable and room amenities were fine. Help […] from the staff was excellent. The dining room was good, clean, and well organized. The meals were very good, including the breakfast buffet, which had a large selection, including omelettes made to order. Dinners were very good to excellent. The only annoyance was, strangely, the flatware, which was oddly designed, heavy and uncomfortable to use. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great Getaway weekend!"
My Fiance and I where looking to getaway for a weekend and enjoy another city. We went to Boston, who knew the city has become so beautiful. We had dinner at Del Fricos, which is a little pricey, but trust me you get what you pay for. The food is delicious! If you love seafood and steak, that is the place to go. We also took a walk and went to Quincy […] Market and enjoyed all of what it has to offer, Shops and nothing, pleanty of minnie shops of restaurants to choose from. Try something small from all of them. They have a navigator by the name of Winnie, who goes the extra mile to make sure you have a good time. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"close to many top shelf resturants"
outstanding room and view....Gina was the best receptionist I've seenGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Can't beat the location. The hotel is always top-notch. Walking distance to convention center and seaport world trade center.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"High Quality, Not The Best Location"
I stayed here based on the recommendation of a few friends for a long weekend. It so happened to be during the weekend of the February 2013 snow storm that shutdown Boston. The hotel was prepared as all the amenities (including the Starbucks) remained open throughout the storm. The hotel itself is excellent, very well maintained with professional staff. […] The room was spacious and well appointed. The only downside is that the location is very close to downtown, though there is a Silver Line stop nearby. If you are going to be attending a function at the convention center then this is an excellent place to stay. Otherwise if you don't mind a bit of a walk to the key locations of Boston then you can't go wrong with the Renaissance. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to Convention Center"
Overall it was a great hotel a little disappointed for the rate we paid per night the hotel room doesn't come with a microwave or a fridge that stays running more then 2 hours at a time. However, service and cleanliness of hotel was great!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very nice view, great staff"
We spent one night at this Renaissance hotel and, overall, were pleased. The room was on the 14th floor, at the end of the hallway and non-connecting (no door between rooms) with a nice wall-to-wall window overlooking the harbor, modern and well-maintained furniture and fixtures. Comfortable king bed and pillows, excellent -very quiet- central air […] conditioning system. Even though this room is advertised as having a "marble bathroom," its bathroom actually had a granite counter and tiled shower stall and floor. Pristine condition, snow white towels. Not a small room, but we've stayed at Renaissance hotels in other cities that had larger rooms. Maybe the fact that this one is in Boston has something to do with that. The only negative was that hallways did not smell fresh, the carpets needed vacuuming and the elevator doors and panels needed cleaning. This really surprised us because the public areas of all the other Renaissance locations we've stayed at have always been pristine. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great location for business and family"
Very helpful staff from front desk to housekeeping everyone was smiling and willing to answer questions about the hotel and surrounding area.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great price for a very nice room."
The room was very nice and clean. The bed was very comfortable. Upon check-in I think the employee was new as she couldn't answer some of my questions and had to ask another staff member. I didn't get to see much of the hotel other than my room and the lobby so I can't comment on anything else.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Paper thin walls make a poor value"
One set of neighbors had a perfectly civil (if boring) conversation until 1am. The other neighbor's alarm sounded at 5am. I felt as if we were all in the same room. An otherwise nice hotel, but at this price point one should be able to get a decent nights sleep.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Don't hesitate to stay here"
This was my first vacation where I was traveling alone without ever meeting up with friends or family. It was pretty intimidating to try to find the best places to stay in the various cities. I took the recommendation of the cruise line and booked my nights in Boston here. I'm so glad I did. Don't be afraid to stay in the south shore area. There are […] restaurants galore, it is convenient to the downtown area via the many trolley tours and it is very convenient to the airport. I booked a two day pass through a trolley tour company that came down in this direction and enjoyed two days in "Beantown" prior to my cruise. The hotel itself is close to lots of restaurants, convention center, entertainment venues and a deli. Being close to the deli saved me some money. I shopped for my breakfast there.

"Nice hotel but not close to most sights"
Very nice hotel overall. But I like to be nearer to shops and sights so when not at the conference I can quickly get out and about. Also, I found the hotel pool too cold.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Enjoyed the hotel and the Seaport is a great location. Booked two rooms and requested 2 double beds in each room and one room had a king bed instead. I called ahead of time to make the request so was disappointed to find the request was not handled. The hotel is beautiful and well appointed. Room service was timely however, the desserts did not match […] the description on the menu! The pool area is also nice and you can't beat the location as you can walk to a variety of places.

"Great Hotel, Convenient to Harbor & BOA Pavillion"
This hotel is right off the "T" Silver Line Way stop which makes it an excellent alternative to staying at the airport. It was 1 block from the harbor front which makes dining convenient. Also 1 block from the BOA Pavillion! 10 minute bus ride to Terminal E at Logan!!! It's not convenient to downtown so if that's what you're traveling to visit you […] may want to look at other options. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a place to stay in Boston.

"Best weekend hotel for the money."
First I would say that I would stay here again on a weekend. They (most hotels in this area) really fleece the business person during the week. The hotel is new and the rooms are really comfortable. The hotel service couldn't be better and the location is perfect if you're going to the Fleet Boston Pavilon, Convention Center or a few local bars and […] restaurants.. My only gripe is that I asked for a view of either the city or harbor when I made the reservation. I asked again when I checked in and the person just noded. We'll I ended up getting a view of the backside. The third option I didn't want. Not happy with that! I stayed at the Westin next door a few weeks earlier and they gave me a room with an outstanding view of the city. This is a weekend mind you and they were not full.

"i luv it"
i luved itGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We were really pleased with the quality and service of this hotel. The staff were friendly and helpful and the room was clean. The location worked out well for us as we didn't mind walking to get to museums/restaurants, etc. We were able to pick up the trolley that took us downtown just down the street from the hotel. The only complaint we had was that […] on Saturday night you could hear the beat of music coming from somewhere in the hotel (wedding? bar?). It didn't keep us awake but we were surprised to be able to hear the music while staying on the 10th floor. Despite this, we would definitely stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Terrific for the Business Traveler"
I had a lovely stay. The hotel staff was cordial and very helpful and I felt comfortable in their knowledge. I was surprised at the high level of sophistication in the gym. Most hotels will throw in a few tread mills and elipticles, with a multipurpose weight machine. I was relieved to see the dumbbells plus the exercise benches.Genuine Expedia guest review
First time in Boston and would definitely stay here again. Great location to food and drinks and nice walk to Long Wharf.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"The Annual Girls' Reunion Group"
What a wonderful stay we had! One night there were 3 of us and the next night there were 4 as a friend was flying in to join us. The staff was accommodating for the change in reservations. We were extra pleased w/ the location and helpful staff upon arriving. The room was bright and inviting w/ a wonderful view of the city. Couldn't have been happier […] w/ our stay. We loved how easy it was to navigate from the hotel to sites we wanted to visit. Thanks for the wonderful experience. We'll be happy to rebook at the Renaissance should we visit Boston soon again in the future. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Boston; family of 4; 4 days wasn't enough time."
great hotel; would go back in a flash. Rated "condition and upkeep" as a 4 because one bed sank in the middle; Wonderful decor, design, gym, lovely lap pool, little fridge perfect for our family of 4 who wanted a quick cheap healthy breakfast before we left for the day's sightseeing. Check out Legal Seafood one block away, also the Fish Pier was fun […] to explore and watch a fishing boat unload. We wanted to be closer to Freedom Trail, but saved on the hotel at this location and took the bus/subway all over Boston. Our 7 day train pass included ferry to the USS Constitution. Highlights: JFK Library, Giaccomo(?) restaurant in North End (yes, it's worth the wait!!), Freedom Trail, tour of State House,. Would do it all again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"I rate this hotel as lass than average."
The service fromn the concierge was efficient but often hurried. They didn't seem to want to hear all I had to say and what I needed from them. They wer ein a hurry to finish and get to the next person. Also, one day it was raining and I had appointments in another hotel nearby. I asked to borrow an umbrella, somehting I have done many times at other […] downtown hotels around the country. I was told I had to buy one fromt eh gift shop. It was $40! I told this sotry to my customer staying in another hotel. He told me there is an u7mbrella in his rom's closet for hi suse for free. When I suggested this might be good cusotme4r service to this hotel, they said that was not their policy. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The hotel was very nice. It was clean and service was always prompt. Room service was great. The restaurant, on the other hand, would beneft from better management. Long delays in service and there were empty tables while guests waited to be seated. There also weren't many other food options in the area on Sunday morning. It was like a ghost town […] outside. So if you're looking for local flavor, it's probably not the place for you. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
