Connected to the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center (BCEC), The Westin Boston Waterfront makes the most of its harbor location. Receiving an eco-rating of 4 Green Keys from the Hotel Association of America, the green-friendly vibe continues at the innovative Vertical Garden in the lobby-designed to de-stress-as well as the airy, terrace-style Birch Bar. Dine on classic American grills and New England lobster at Sauciety, or grab a quick Starbucks on your way to a meeting. Feel like sampling Boston-Irish traditions while in the city? The Westin Waterfront has its very own on-site pub, M.J. O'Connors, where you can swig draught beers in honor of the Emerald Isle.

Neighborhood
From their central location in the bustling Seaport District, Westin Waterfront guests don't need to go far to visit Boston Harbor. It's only a two-block walk to view 20th and 21st century names like Louise Bourgeois at the Institute of Contemporary Arts, and less than a mile to the New England Aquarium. Take the T train to city financial district, The Loop, or hop aboard an on-call water taxi at Fan Pier or Liberty Wharf when you're headed the three miles to Logan International Airport (BOS), and leave the traffic behind.
Hints and tips
There are plenty of well-connected transport options in Boston, but fitness enthusiasts should take advantage of the Westin Waterfront hotel's New Balance Gear Lending Program, which saves guests the trouble of packing athletic shoes when traveling to the "Walkable City."

Quiet, convenient and great price

My wife, myself and my parents stayed here for a quick one-day trip to boston over the holidays. Booked it last-minute for a great deal. Room was as Westin standards always are - perfect. Staff was very accommodating and this location offered New Balance work out wear rental (clothes, shoes) for $5! Next to the convention center and Starbucks in the hotel, although it was closed for the weekend during our stay. Otherwise, great value.

Boston Weekend

A huge group of us stayed at the Westin for a wedding. The bar was very nice and we were able to do some post-wedding drinking at the bar area and the staff was very accommodating. Location was walking distance to the revitalized Waterfront area. Best part of hotel was that they are VERY pet friendly.

Great value business-style hotel

Whilst the hotel is slightly out of the centre of Boston (approx. 30 minutes walk - note, no easy access to public transport, although taxis always wait outside the hotel), this is a great option for exploring the city. Ideal if you like a large business-style hotel, this hotel is located right next to the conference centre. Rooms are spacious, clean, comfortable and excellent value. There is a Starbucks in the hotel (quite expensive), together with a concierge service if you need assistance booking anything or to ask questions. Altogether highly recommended if you don't mind walking (taxi to South Station is approximately US$5, to town centre approximately US$10).

Dining tip: Long walk from hotel

The Thinking Cup - definitely take time to visit this amazing coffee shop, with great coffee (especially the Hazelnut Latte) and great cakes and pastries. Also, try Legal Sea Foods by the aquarium for perfectly cooked fresh sea food and a decent wine list.

Good Stay

Other than the location, which is rather far to walk to because it is located away from everything on the Boston waterfront, the hotel itself and the value was very good. Be sure to request a room with a city view.

Great location and views of the Waterfront area

Average experience. Had to ask for a few things that were suppose to be included with our room. No real information about the hotel in the room. Had to go to the lobby to look at a map to find out were things were such as pool, fitness room.
