I went online and got the hotel for only $75/night for the 4th of July weekend!  Awesome!  I looked forward to the uber-comfy beds every night and slept like a log.  The crisp white decor of the hotels is gorgeous and I loved it!  Room service was delicous and reasonably priced.  We also grabbed a quick bite at 606 restaurant downstairs and the waiter (who was a charmer), recommended the crab cake... a great recommendation.  After a massive heat wave and my mom feeling ill, we missed the fireworks on the Esplanade, but we could view them from our window on the 6th floor.  If we were higher up, I am sure the views would be better and while they were slightly obstructed by a building in the distance, watching them both out the window and on the tv, it was far better than fighting the heat, crowds, transit challenges, etc.  This hotel is super convenient as the Silver Line stops just across the street from the hotel so you can get to the airport with ease (my mom, who NEVER navigates cities on her own, muchless one she'd never been to, made it to the hotel on her own on the bus...wow!) and anywhere else you need to go.  If I go back to Boston, I am definitely heading back here... it was wonderful!

This hotel is full if itself by half. I made my reservation on line and later confirmed by phone for a very late check-in. Online, I requested a room near (as in vicinity) the elevator as my companion was having a minor orthopedic procedure and could not be a long way from the elevator. It wasn't until the next day, when the elevators were in full usage that I realized we were right next the the elevator machinery, listening to every up and down ride!! Too late to move my friend, I then realized I had left my reading glasses in my car, now in the $42 day valet parking garage. Tip in hand, I asked the valet to please check the door of my car the next time he went to the garage for my glasses. He could not find them, so I spent the entire afternoon and evening unable to read or work, even if I had been willing to pay for WiFi in my room, which I would not have done on principle alone (nor have paid $17 for a movie this day and age!). Stuck in my room, I could of course enjoy the harbor view, if I strained my neck about ninety degrees for a slim slice of what appeared to be H2O. Upon checking out, my glasses were in the door of my car after all--great customer service! I have always stayed at Marriotts and I have lived and traveled extensively in Asia--this kind of fake prestige is really appalling. On top of everything, they said they would, but did not credit my Mariott rewards.

pros: location -- 1. great restaurants (LTK, Morton's) withing walking distance 2. cost reasonable. 3. beds are really comfy 4. instead of awful "bedspread" they have a comforter in a cover that is changed daily 5. rooms are clean & well kept & decor is nice 6. staff is overall professional, helpful & courteous 7. room service until 11:00pm 8. room had gorgeous view (see #3 in cons for more info) 9. starbucks just off the lobby

cons: 1. they actually charge for internet per day. i went with $12.95 & it was fast enough -- they also offer a $16.95 faster speed. also, when i tried to get on the internet via my ipad (vs laptop) it again asked me for $12.95. blows my mind that any hotel does this 2. housekeeping apparently does not understand the meaning of the "do not disturb" door tag as each day they attempted to gain entry when i had the tag on my door. sorry, no tip today! 3. when i made the reservation i was very specific that the room had to have a water view. on check-in i was told i had a "city view" but would see a little water. i had to push a little to get a room change. fortunately, the hotel was not full & i was given another room. 4. my companion is in a wheelchair. for some reason i had to navigate the doors exiting the hotel myself with no assistance from staff standing nearby. 5. charge to use their garage: $42.00 -- more than a tad excessive.

would i stay here again? yes, definitely. however, for me the cons were serious enough to prevent a higher rating.

Overall good stay. We stayed 5 nights. The workout room had excellent machines and tvs on them. The pool is narrow and only 3 ft but nice. The hot tub was closed the entire stay. There is a nice sauna. The room was average. The cleaning staff left was sub par. Only travel toiletries the first day and beds not made well. The navigator was very helpful in helping us around the city and finding things for us to do during the stay. Good overall.

I attended a very fancy fundraising function at this hotel on 3/24/12.  Imagine our surprise when we pulled up and were told that the valet parking was "full."  "Full" on a Saturday night when you have hundreds of people arriving for events?  Aren't you prepared for this?  My wife, who was of course in a dress and heels, was not amused when the valet told us that we would have to park in a lot blocks away.  Are you kidding me?  This was the kind of event where people literally spend thousands and thousands of dollars on auction items and everyone was being turned away at the valet.  Be warned-- if you're thinking of having your wedding or other event at this hotel, be sure to talk with them about the parking situation.  You don't want them sending grandma to a parking lot three blocks away because they don't have enough valet staff.  This was not classy at all and not appropriate for a hotel that's trying to have a high-end image.

The rooms were very comfortable and we had an amazing sleep in their king size bed outfitted w/ down comforters and pillows.  The ipod docker/speakers alarm clock was a nice touch too.  The location wasn't central, but was within a healthy walking distance to everything if you are willing to walk.  We didn't spend too much time in the hotel except to sleep and shower in the morning, so I can't really comment on the other amenities and restaurant bar.

First of all you have to remember that Renaissance Boston Waterfront is not waterfront. It is across the street from waterfront and therefore it offers a panoramic view of large buildings and parking lots on all four sides.
This hotel is seriously mismanaged. You feel this immediately upon arrival. It has this small driveway. The driveway is always clogged with some dead parked vehicles. Consequently, in order to check in, I had to circle the block three times!
They charge $42 for "valet parking", but it is a sheer nightmare if you'll try to use it. They promise to deliver your car within 15 - 20 minutes but it seldom happens. For instance, I had to wait for over 30 minutes while there was zero demand for cars. It's not that they were busy, not at all. I stayed there waiting for my car while nobody did anything. They just don't care. I asked to see a manager, but he was too busy to see me. This hotel does not own its own garage.
We've made August reservations back in June. They demanded full prepayment (which we did). Yet, upon arrival they had no room with two Quinn beds available as agreed. Consequently, a mother with two little children was forced to spend a night on the couch.
There are plenty of other hotels around with better rates, with its own garages and not as chaotic atmosphere.
Avoid it if you can.

I went to a conference there in September 2008.  The conference facilities were adequate.
Catering service at the conference was a little above average.
The staff members were very friendly.
The room I had was nicely outfitted with modern tv and the best hotel clock radio I can recall seeing.  There were no plush robes, no laptop safe.  The $13 internet fee is a pet gripe of mine.   The nearby Seaport Hotel has free Wi-Fi (Hint!  Hint!)   Why can a cheap motel in any town in the US give free internet access, but luxury hotels have to nickel-and-dime you?  There is a business center with free internet access, but there are only 2 computers, and they have been crippled in the interest of "security".
The hotel is "green" to some extent, trying to minimize laundering of towels, etc, and using compact fluorescent bulbs, but not to the extent of resisting the lure of offering $4 bottles of Fiji Water.
The location is somewhat sterile.

The location could have been a little better but man I want that bed. I had some great sleep and I didn't want to wake up. Ofcourse I could have been tired as hell too but at least the beds helped since there are hotels with very crappy beds. As for the amenities and restaurant, it looked pricy and the parking around there was crazy. $45 for overnight parking???????????????????

I went there for a night -  to get away from the city, Yes, the locations isnt that great, there arent any stores around and very few restaurants, but if you can walk 15mins, you will have all that -North End and Downtown. Now. . about the hotel....the staff is really friendly and laid back. The rooms are sooo comfortable. I really enjoyed my stay and WILL go back .

I stayed here on a business trip for a week and loved it.  The hotel room was so luxurious; the bed was huge and soft, the big flat screen TV was able to be connected to my laptop, etc.  The bathroom was beautiful, and the indoor swimming pool on the middle level was lovely.  I loved this hotel and highly recommend it.  I definitely utilized the Starbucks downstairs in the lobby during my stay.

I just came back from said hotel. I stay a multiple Marriott type of hotels and I always end up thinking that one of their fanciest brands sucks. Renaissance is nice but I don't know.
1. First of all, if you're going to charge as much for a hotel you better offer your guests free wifi, Courtyard does, Residence Inn does, Spring Hill does, I won't even name Hilton's here.
2. The room was great, good bed, why though were the walls so thin, I could hear all what people in the adjacent rooms were doing and when I am there for business it's less than great mostly when it's at 3 AM when a drunk ...... doesn't have the decency to shut up. So if you're expecting a calm hotel, depends on your luck, I wasn't that lucky.
3. The staff was probably the best thing, they were nice, as I had access to the executive type of room, one of them even went out of her ways to provide me with a phone charger as I forgot mine.
4. Food, their restaurant is ok, it's aright I guess, as a Vegetarian though you don't have many options.

All is all, I think it's ok but is it a thrill? No.

Valet and bellman - courteous and helpful.  Front desk staff - so friendly.  Best of all, my room was pristine!  Walked two short blocks to Legal Seafoods for a great dinner and also found the food at the hotel to be very, very good.  I wouldn't hesitate to return.

As a business traveller, you choose hotels where, if you made a reservation, you get a bed. This hotel is so bad, when I got there, they were oversold to the point that my room had no bed. just a sofabed. and they were proud of it! one of the receptionists claimed that people ask for that room, which is actually a conference room. in fact, you can't even book it online, it's so good! bull. crap. They offered me a discount, etc, and I said, I'm a business traveller. I don't really care whether it's cheaper I CARE THAT I HAVE A GOOD NICE BED TO REST IN BEFORE MY MEETING. i had to kick a fuss before they could offer me a rollaway (which would embarrass Motel 6) and then an airbed- but I don't like airbeds. I couldn't move because I arrived really late and the only alternative was Logan, but I had to meet someone for breakfast. STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACE. Not only are they incompetent, they don't know when they are.

Very nice and slightly pricey. Booked a room for $350 a night (not to worry - company expensed for a business trip) but the room was very nice. I especially liked the shower and the lounging chair next to the window. Service in the lobby was impeccable and there is a bar and two computers for complimentary internet access. Access in your room is $13 a day but my service kept going in and out. Like every ten minutes it would stop for five minutes.

It was a nice hotel.  If it weren't so expensive, I'd rate it higher.  But what really irritated me was having to pay for internet. Even the road-side Best Western that I stayed in when I was in danger of falling asleep at the wheel on I-70 had free internet access.  

The rooms were a decent size, not large by any means, but not cramped.  The bathroom was large by hotel standards. The beds were amazingly comfortable, and those pillows made me contemplate theft for the first time since that Christmas my sister got an easy-bake oven while I got a crappy Barbie doll. Best of all, Aveda products in the bathroom and Starbucks on the first floor for emergency caffeine injections.  FYI, my room had a Master switch for the lights by the door. Fortunately, I saw it before I called down to the front desk to complain about faulty lights in my room.

The front desk was gracious and polite.  When I wanted a room on a higher floor, they were perfectly fine with that. When I was having problems with the internet (that I had to pay for), their tech guys were also very polite and competent.

Really like the hotel.  Nice jacuzzi - very quiet and the concierges are awesome - very very helpful.  The staff was very accommodating.  Would give them a five had the TV not have issues when I was there - while they were responsive it was frustrating to have to call them every day.

The Super Bus stopped and dropped off there and its across the street from the Silver line which drops you off at the airport, so its convenient.

mmm, mama loves shiny new hotels. I stayed overnight at the BOSWF a few nights ago and thought it was pretty luxurious. This is a Marriott but it doesn't scream "Marriott" like you might think because it is ultra-modern and the staff is sophisticated and very helpful. I was happy enough with the fluffy warm bed and sexy chaise lounge but a 40" flat plasma tv and an stereo with ipod dock, are you kidding me right now? We were on the fifth floor but somehow that had a courtyard, so i was a little freaked out when someone walked by my window.

While I was there I found out that Mr. Marriott was staying there too, and what's good enough for Mr. Marriott is good enough for me.

This hotel is convenient to the airport, convention center and downtown and has a lovely waterfront location.  Okay, I'm slightly influenced by the fact that I snagged this hotel for under $100 on Priceline for a holiday Saturday night stay but this is still a great hotel and new at that.  It's not in the heart of Boston, so if you're looking for that, move on.  I'm also a walker so I don't mind walking a little to get to the restaurants and bars nearby (yes there are several on Atlantic).  Faneuil Hall and the North End were also walkable from here but about 20-30 mins walk so if you can't handle that, take a cab or the subway.

Rooms were clean, comfortable and had a very nice flat panel tv (about 37", I think).  I received a corner room with a "peek-around" harbor view so it was quiet and nice.  As pretty much everyone else has said, the beds here are very comfortable and once you sink into one it's hard to come out.  I had little interaction with the staff but what interaction I had was always pleasant, friendly and helpful.  Would definitely stay here again----but only on that P-line rate because I can't afford the regular rates. :)

stayed here 3 nights over memorial day weekend and really had no complaints. hotel is clean, modern, and the location is great--right on boston's beautiful waterfront and near tons of restaurants/bars with outdoor seating. the bed in our room was huge and soooo comfy. carpeting in the hallways is rather...festive...[read: resembles a cruise ship on crack]...but definitely not a dealbreaker.

also! the hotel bar is bangin! [just realized we either started or ended the evening here every night of our stay...lolz.] special shout out to ALAN, phenomenal bartender...thanks for putting up with us.

I'm sorry the previous reviewer did not have a good function at this hotel - but I think it's important to identify the difference between a hotel bar experience and an overnight one.

I recently stayed at this hotel purely because of its ridiculously close proximity to the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center (no more than 2 blocks walk away). The fact that the hotel is only 4 months old didn't hurt either.

Honestly, while there was no story of extraordinary service or exceptional delight, I had an absolutely lovely stay.

The beds are comfy and not too squishy like I find most newer hotels to have. You have a choice of feather or foam pillows, which is a nice touch.

Even though I didn't pay for it, I got a waterfront view, and it seemed that probably most of the rooms by default have this luxury - so my recommendation is unless you need a guarantee, just book the cheaper room and you'll probably still get it.

The lobby is nice and modern, and the entire building was very clean. All rooms are non-smoking.

The gym is pretty small, but all of the equipment is brand spanking new. There are about 3 each of the standard machines and a small space for plyometrics, if that's your thing. The lap pool is nice, though pretty narrow. Two full size adult men would probably come pretty close to each other if they were swimming in the opposite directions. The jacuzzi was nice, and can probably seat 6 people comfortably. The locker rooms were very clean and well-stocked with goodies like lotions, mouthwash, steam room, etc. There was also free, fresh fruit available at the front desk.

I don't know how crowded it was, but we never heard anyone else while we were in the room. Maybe our neighbors were respectful (yeah, how often does that happen in a hotel?), but it was nice and quiet.

Flat screen LCD TV, nice full desk, day bed, large stand-up shower. Fast elevators, room service available (I think $15 hamburgers - so not the worst or best I've seen). Internet is $13/day or something like that, though I didn't use it.

Only "gripe" is there is seemingly no turn-down service. Not a big deal, but hey - for $400/night, it would be a nice touch. Also, the location is great for the convention center, and there's some decent seafood places within 5 minutes walking distance along the water. There's not much beyond that - but the walk to downtown Boston is only about 15-20 minutes, so definitely doable, and actually kind of nice to do along the water.

Overall, lovely stay. Nothing exceptional, but would definitely return.

I stayed here for four days and at the Westin Boston Waterfront for two days in one trip. The Renaissance was definitely the better hotel. While I thought the quality of the bed / mattress was not great at the Renaissance, I liked everything else.

The staff were great and concierge was helpful. The concierge level club of the hotel offered a nice view, good appetizer options and good continental breakfast options. I also liked the mini fridge in the room.

The proximity to restaurants, bars and the T are great. It's a nice area to walk around. They offered Aveda personal care products, which is nice. The products at the Westin smell terrible and the lotion made my eyes water.

Great hotel, and I'm kinda picky.  Got a nice large room on a higher floor (exactly as requested).  All the furnishings are newer, the lobby is pleasant and unstuffy, and the bartenders give very generous pours - what more could you ask for?

The staff really is phenomenal here.  Everyone is respectful and mellow, no hyper hotel attitude.  I'll gladly stay here again.

Very nice. The rooms are large, spacious, and nicely decorated. The pool, spa, and fitness centers were immaculate. The staff was friendly and accommodating. Even the built-in restaurant was nice - although I only went for a drink, the place looked vibrant.

The best part is the bed. Once you get in that thing, you're never going to want to leave. The hotel really isn't close to anything you'd want to visit if you're coming in for the night, but if you're willing to walk or take a short cab ride, Faneuil Hall and the North End are within your reach.

Expensive, but definitely worth the price of admission.

I stayed here for 5 days and 6 nights, so I really got to know this hotel. A conference I was attending was located here so the location for that was great, but it is far from downtown. I walked to and from downtown several times, but once I was in for the night it was too far to walk back downtown. The common areas are superb. Clean, modern, beautiful, dare I even say pristine and spotless. Based on that I was expecting more from the room design and was disappointed to see some of the standard crazy hotel carpeting. However, the room was very clean with no visible dirt, marks or spots. While the bedding was superb and comfortable, the mattress and frame made a lot of noise leading my to think it needs to be replaced. WIFI is not free, which is really a bummer given the price of $200+ per night. I was charged for items I did not use, but was happy that they returned the fee following some insistence. The bathrooms were really nice. Loved the showers, the Aveda products and the fact the hotel provides toothpaste...definitely a nice touch. Noise issues were rare. Overall I would stay again if attending a conference, but if you are looking to get out and explore downtown Boston, I would look for something closer in.

Contemporary feel and comfortable, clean rooms.  Feels new!  Nice bar area to the left of the lobby.  Prices reasonable but part of a conference deal at $199 a night booked online as they charge you if you call in.  View is near a bunch of conference-like buildings...not my view for vacationing.  It's more ideal for business travelers

This is about a 15 min walk from the train station which is not bad at all as long the weather is not blistery cold.   It's near the Children's Museum but far from the rest of downtown Boston.

The only thing I didn't like this place is that I picked up some bad allergy from this hotel and I wasn't the only one from the conference attendees.  We were suspecting something from the carpet.  At least they have a sundry store so I could down some drugs to make me feel better in their comfortable beds.

Stayed here while attending a conference. The interior is nice and modern, as are the rooms. The beds are really comfortable.

There were a few misses, though. There was a room service breakfast order card on my pillow the first night (that I used) and it was not placed there in subsequent nights. I ordered room service (via phone, since I didn't have a card) the morning of my checkout, but after an hour wait, I had to cancel it as I no longer had time to eat before I had to check out and go to the airport. Overall, the room service was okay. Not awful, but not great.

I heard from my conference friends that the Seaport hotel was nicer. However, it's also more expensive than this hotel. I'd stay here again, but it didn't blow me away.

There's something about using dead sealife as decoration that creeps me out.They do it at the Nylo Hotel in Warwick RI too, but they put it under their glass tables, which is even worse.

But back to the Renaissance... it was pretty nice. I think the water themed colors make the place seem a little outdated. All the blue and orange and whatnot.

With that said, the beds were comfy, the views were nice, and we were going to the Boston Wine expo, so we only stayed a night and it was close enough to the convention center to walk.

I did really enjoy their bar. It's nice and big and you can sit with a bunch of people at one of the long tables off the side, or you can sit around a little table in some comfy seats.

Also, the hotel in general is pretty cheap, so there's your plus.

One of my rare Five-Star...ers. -And peaches, did they earn it.

First, we started our stay with an INCREDIBLE deal on Priceline. Arrived to the gorge, mod building...which I barely remember because I was already deep in the throws of a terrible sickness.

After a few moments in our room, a basket of juice, fruit, and Lara Bars was delivered courtesy of the hotel because they knew that I was ill. Absolutely incredible. -I could not enjoy any of it, but the thought was so encouraging.

The next day, I spent in-and-out of consciousess in our spacious, clean room, and late that night, my mum got help from the concierge to find a nearby hospital for me to visit first thing in the morning.

I was admitted immediately, nearly at death's door with pneumonia, and since my hospital stay completely upended our travel plans, my mum was desperate to make certain she had a place to stay until I was discharged (and after, until I was well enough to travel). Once again, the concierge was so helpful, and was able to extend our stay at a great rate (not quite as good as PL, but still about 1/2 off).

Once I was discharged, I was not well enough to travel, and had to stay a few more days tucked away in the room. Since the hotel is not centrally located in the city, dining options are limited (especially when one is ill and turned off at the thought of most food...and vegan on the best of days). Luckily, my mum made a visit to the kitchen, and the chef knew all about vegan reqs, and assured her the house vegetable panini was safe...so we each ordered one a day after I 'came home.' The sandwich was huge, delicious, served with a heap of housemade, fresh crisps, and a bargain at $12 (especially amazing that it was for in-room dining). We ordered it again the night before we left. -And if I were to return, I would get it yet a third time. Heck. I want one now.

Not to mention, everyone we encountered on staff was absolutely courteous and helpful.

Considering all I got to see of Boston was the inside of a hospital room and our room at the Renaissance, I have to say, the Renaissance is my favourite place in the city. Of course, had our tix to Fenway not gone to waste due to my being on my deathbed...that opinion might have changed. I only hope that I someday get to return to the Renaissance and get the opportunity to put that assessment to the test, but considering how clean, reasonable, and inviting the experience was...I bet it will still be on my faves list for years and visits to Bostown to come.

Ok, I got bug bites......but I can't really chalk that one up to the hotel.
It was probably the walk by the piers.
The room has been very comfy and the AC is still working.
The internet is a bit expensive (17 bucks a day), but I get unlimited long distance calls.
I think I will tag another star to the review:)

After staying at the crappiest place in NYC and coming here, I had to give this place 5 stars!  I got a great deal on Priceline when I couldn't find anything else in Boston under $100.  As soon as I walked into the trendy looking lobby, I knew I'd be in good hands.  When I got to my room on the 9th floor, I was pleasantly surprised already in the hall that they'd given us the corner room at the end of the hall, and then upon opening the door to see how big it was, I could've done a cartwheel or two from the door to the windows with the view of the whole city.  We were even able to watch a stunt scene being filmed outside our window for a Tom Cruise/Cameron Diaz movie which made our room even better.

Aveda products in the bathroom are just another plus.  The only thing missing is a giant bath tub but that's okay.  I can deal with the shower and still fall happily asleep in the king bed.

It is really far from everything, but I still managed to walk to Quincy Market everyday.  It's right next to the T which also helps.  It's also somewhat close to Flour bakery which is delicious.  The gym here is also decent and there is a pool.

A fabulous new hotel for an old town.

This is a gorgeous hotel and a great location if you want to be by the water. The staff is very friendly and the rooms are very comfortable.

The only thing I didnt like was the shower because you actually have to stand in it to turn on the water and adjust the temperature, and the bathroom was freezing when I came out of the shower even though I take hot showers.

Internet in the room was $12.95 for a basic connection or $16.95 for faster connection. I had no problem with the basic connection, but I may have opted for the faster one if I was wanting to watch videos online.

Stayed here 2 nights for a conference.  Previous conferences with this group in other cities had really terrible breakfasts and lunches - not sure how this one compared on price, but the food was excellent!

The room was clean and spacious.  Yes, WiFi does cost, but they provide you with a great desk that has easy connections for all the cableing you could need and even a bag in the closet with a bunch of spare cables!  

Used the fitness center - considering it's a hotel gym, there's a decent selection of lifting machines including a cable machine, dumbells up to 35lbs and plenty of cardio equipment (nobody ever seems to have a rowing machine, but that's life.) I meant to use the lap pool and the jacuzzi but it was a very busy trip and I never got the time.  Facilities were lovely though!

This hotel is pretty clean. You get for what you pay for. The only thing that I didn't like was the fact that my bed was a bit too soft. The pillows were also too square for me. I like my pillow rectangular in shape when I sleep. Otherwise it was a great stay considering the conference I was attending was in the same building - it made everything that much more convenient.

Cons: The concierge was not helpful at all though.  She didn't want to search for a bar where I could watch the boxing match, just named a few bars off the top of her head and went back to searching for apartments. The shower door would not close completely and would stick trying to open.  Super expensive parking which is not even connected to the hotel.

Pros: Super comfy bed.  Nice bar downstairs. The hotel had a nice modern setting with the room being exceptionally awesome. Having a gym open 24/7 was really helpful.  They were nice enough to give us an upgrade from two doubles to a king even if we booked through Priceline.

The waterfront view was pretty killer.

What a wonderful hotel.  In the waterfront area, had beautiful amenities.  Not inexpensive, but worth every penny. Had a king size bed room with the prettiest bathroom (and giant shower) I had seen in a while.  Lovely decor (nautical, lively themed fabrics), giant picture rooms, spotlessly clean, wonderful staff, lively bar.  Can't give it five stars because it wasn't inexpensive (got a room  off of discounted site, at least $100 cheaper than neighboring hotels)... still, probably a 4.5 star hotel, not 4.  If the opportunity arises, will stay here again.

Not downtown, in the waterfront area.  Great to walk to the convention centers, and piers and restaurants locally.

We are staying here for a few days on vacation.  They were great to us and gave us a room upgrade.  We are living large in a huge suite.  The hotel itself is very clean and everyone is friendly.  I am using a the basic internet connect which is costing $12.95.  They have a higher speed option but the basic is running just fine so I see no reason to pay even more.  In the end I am not happy having to pay for Internet at these high prices.  I stay at so many hotels that cost so much less I see no reason why they have to continue to nickle and dime you at the high end hotels but that is all of them and not unique to Renaissance.

The location is good.  We are just about a mile from the main downtown area and there a few nice places to eat right by the hotel.

The staff was friendly and my room was very nice...comfortable bed as well.  I liked the location right close to the harbor and there were also several restaurants within walking distance.

My only complaints were that I asked for a room with a harbor view when I checked in and was looked at like I was an idiot...and ended up with a view in the complete opposite direction.  Also, when I finally tried to turn on my TV the second night I was there, it wouldn't come on.  Although a 40ish inch flat screen in the room is nice, it's pretty worthless if it wont turn on.  I called the front desk and they apologized and said they would send up a tech right away to determine the problem.  Never came...which was a little irritating as I was wanting to catch the end of the baseball games that were on.

They had a nice bar downstairs that I went to a couple times...also had a nice meeting space on the third floor for 300-400 people.

Very nice hotel.  Rooms were nice, not huge, but not too bad of size.  Location is a bit out of the way, it is a long walk to the North End.  Subway service is right by the hotel, but it is the silver "bus" line, which is okay but a bit confusing.  The gym is good, as was the pool area.  The concierge lounge was nice but the food quality varied significantly, as did the hosts' attitudes (some mornings there were dirty plates everywhere).  If you're going to the convention center, it is a nice, 10 minute walk away.

I don't know if there's a seperate entry in Yelp for the bar, but that's what this review is of, the bar.  I love it.  It's big and spacious and gorgeous - has that modern zen thing going on.  Our waitress was great - very congenial and nice.  I really enjoyed going here for a couple drinks.  Nice couches to sit on.  Even a fireplace, if you felt like it.
-
My one problem: the COP outside, sitting in his car, flashing his lights all night - including the strobes!  Can I tell you how annoying it is to have that flashing on you as you sit there trying to chill with your bourbon?  There was no traffic, no accident - nothing.  WHY was he there in front of the hotel all night like that?  Are they using this place as cover for something, again?  Ugh!
-
But aside from that, it's a beautiful bar and lobby.  Check out that hallway to the bathrooms - it's like a work of art.

The Renaissance exceeded my expectations! I'm not sure that I would choose it as a vacation destination, but as a venue for a Social Media Analytics conference, it was nearly perfect.

The plumbing is a bit noisy, but tolerable. I'd give any hotel a thumbs down for charging for WiFi. In my opinion, WiFi should be a standard on par with running water in the bathroom....speaking of which, I loved the bathroom! It is one of the most spacious and well appointed I've ever experienced in a hotel. I often can't sleep well on hotel beds, but this one was just perfect. I slept like a baby.

There may be a fee for WiFi, but each room has a dashboard to handle any electronics you may have. Great feature for a bunch of geeks (that includes me)!

Anyone with an eye for modern art and design would love this hotel! Every square inch was carefully designed from the Dan Flavin-esque hallway off the lobby, to the use of embedded, broken glass in the headboards. The designers figured out how to marry a nautical theme with post-modern design.

We had a great choice of appetizers during the conference, awesome boxed lunches, and our restaurant choices were equally delicious. The wait was a bit long in the restaurant, but we weren't in a hurry.

I would definitely return.

This is an interesting property. The rooms are well appointed with good amenities, comfortable beds, and decent views. The food from thr catering department was good. The staff is quite friendly and the location is good if you have to do something immediately in the vicinity. Cell connectivity varies wildly across the building (AT&T 3G and LTE) from strong to non-existent. Parking is expensive and transportation to other places, including downtown Boston is inconvenient or expensive. I was here for a conference and thus the mixed review. It's good if you like the location (near the Seaport, Pavilion, and World Trade Center); otherwise, I would recommend staying somewhere closer to your destination.

I travel several times a month both in the US and abroad and this is hands down the stingiest, most superficially polite, all around awful hotel I've stayed at in the past year.

Internet is tiered, costs $16.00 for 24hr period, AND that period starts at noon every day. If you purchase "a day" of internet at 11am, you are purchasing an hour of internet and it costs $16. This pricing is made even worse when you realize that there is basically no cell phone reception inside the hotel (My group has at&t, t-mobile and Verizon). While you can sacrifice some privacy and use the free internet in the lobby or business center you are forced to use one of their computers instead of your own computer and software with a wifi voucher from the front desk like any other halfway decent hotel in the world. Did I mention that this hotel is in a cell phone dead zone and they take advantage of their patrons by charging in two days what you would normally pay for internet in a month. It's insulting.

Also insulting, any time you cal the front desk someone begrudgingly blurts "delighted to serve." Who says this? What kind of a human being is comforted by someone answering the telephone by exclaiming their subservience.

Oh yeah, and a $4 cup of tea at the bar in the lobby is only the beginning of the ridiculously overpriced food and drink items this hotel generously offers.

Business or personal don't let this hotel nickel and dime you while you're in Boston. There are plenty of decent, clean fair priced hotels nearby.

The Renaissance is located in the southern part of Boston. This area is becoming the new hot spot to hang out at night, so give it some time to develop.

The staff is great and the concierge was very helpful in assisting us with directions to Fenway Park, Faneuil Hall, and other attractions Boston had to offer.

Upon entering the hotel, there is a circular door. If you really wanna mess with someone, the door will stop if you stop walking and the person in front of you will bump into the door. That's just my sadistic way of having fun. Sorry...he...he..he.

There is a Starbucks located in the back of the lobby. This is a plus cause there really isn't a coffee house nearby (like I said, "up and coming area"). What's nice is locals also get their coffee from here, not just hotel patrons.

There is a restaurant on the left side of the hotel as you first enter the hotel. I didn't do in there cause it just didn't look cozy. I wanted a diner that reaks of bacon and coffee.

There is a lap pool and a jacuzzi. When I first went into the jacuzzi, it was nice and hot. But the second time, it was luke-warm. And there were like six of us in there. But it was still warmer than the pool.

The rooms are...rooms. Nothing too special. Its a room. It has a bed...Can you say nautical theme??? Sponge Bob Square Pants. The hall way has a nautical theme as well as the room (at least mine was)...No real view, except that you are close to the water, so you can see that.

The Renaissance is walking distance from their subway (about 2 blocks) and about a good 15-20 minute walk to downtown Boston. It's a good walk. Jacuzzi for tired feet???

So all in all, I enjoyed my stay here. Check out my updated review next year as I visit again.

Stayed at the Renaissance while in town with my husband for a convention.    I liked the hotel but there are definitely some "cons".

The good - nice rooms, really clean and bright.  

The bad - paid WiFi ($16,95/day) , really expensive parking ($42/day) and the loudest plumbing I have ever heard in a hotel.    We could hear showers and toilets from all around but the worst was what sounded like a jet plane (oh yeah, you hear those too) taking off next door.   I suspect perhaps it's a jacuzzi tub in there but whatever it is, it was soooo loud that it rattled the shower head in our room!     Fortunately, we didn't want to sleep in, if we had, it would have been terrible.

Our experience in the restaurant on Sunday morning was less than stellar as well.    My husband and I went down early and they were full - given there were two conventions going on, that's understandable.  I went down about an hour and a half later and the place was still quite full but there were a couple seats free at a small "bar" near the buffet.    I asked to be seated there and was told that the seats were taken.   I waited 15 minutes for a table and no one sat at the free seats - not sure what the deal was there.

All in all, a nice hotel but expect the extra $59/day for the priviledge of WiFi and parking.    I get the paid parking but the WiFi?   If Hampton and Fairfield can provide it for free, the Renaissance certainly can.

Significantly less pricey than hotels around (especially if you use your AAA card), the Renaissance exudes a little bit of contemporary elegance in the public areas and the room.

As for the room, I definitely enjoyed the really comfortable (and large) bed, the large flat-screen television, and a well-lighted bathroom. The mini-fridge and tea/coffee were very nice touches. The lighting around the room was great as well.

Only being a couple years old, the hotel is very clean. The service was solid: everyone was hospitable and friendly. The fitness center was pretty nice as well, with a lap pool to boot.

The restaurants inside the hotel are higher-end, though there's a Starbucks inside as well. I didn't try the restaurants, but there are a few options just a couple blocks away (like Pressed Sandwiches, Yankee Lobster, No Name, etc.).

The only drawback is that the hotel isn't really close to good public transportation (maybe the silver line but that's it), but the other hotels around have that same problem as well. In addition, cell phone reception tends to be really weak inside. Other than that, this hotel is definitely a great value and a very good place to stay if you have to be at the convention center.

UPDATE:
When I went to check out I told them about our experience and asked for a feedback card.  The gentleman at the desk gave me a card and asked about our experience.  After telling him he gave us a $10 gift certificate to Starbucks next door and asked us to stick around for a second.  5 minutes later he gave us a gift certificate for a significant amount for our next stay at a Marriott owned hotel.  Definitely changed my mind about staying at this hotel again.

Original:

Really nice looking hotel but the customer service is to mediocre.  We arrived for the Penny Arcade Expo on Monday morning at 12:15am and found out that the only room that was available was a hospitality suite with a sofa bed.  While the room was larger the sofa bed was not comfortable.  We were told they would get us another room on Friday but we never got that call.  Sat. night there was an ever on the 3rd floor that shook our floor till 1am.  We asked about a room change and were told that they could try to get us another room but at that point we just went to the overpriced hotel bar.

The next time I go to Pax, I'll stay farther away from the show and hope for a better managed hotel during event weekends.

Pro - Relatively new hotel so everything is nice and clean. The bed is very comfortable. They provide Aveda Rosemary personal care products. Rooms offer enhanced technology, boasting a connectivity panel that integrates electronic devices

Hotel is one block off the Silver line way Stop and very close (within 5 to 6 city blocks) to several eateries that have high Yelp rating (Flour Bakery & Cafe, James Hook & Co Lobster, Morton's) and Barking Crab.

Con - The room service is inconsistent, they forgot to put the face towels in the room. They only supply two cups of coffee, one regular and one decaf. It makes a bit challenging if both person in the room want to have regular coffee before they leave the hotel in the morning.  The front desk staff that checked us in wasn't very courteous (although the person who checked us out was very polite).

I have to say that my experience with this hotel was just fantastic! I was in town for PAX East so naturally I didn't spend a whole lot of time in the hotel, but at the times when I was in the hotel the accommodations were great. I am wheelchair bound and this is the first hotel that I have stayed at in years that had proper bathroom accommodations (a fold down shower bench and a roll in shower). The location was fantastic and it was a quick jaunt from the hotel to the convention center. The only downer of that walk had nothing to do with the hotel, it had to do with the fact that it was 30-something degrees out and I am from Phoenix, AZ where I am used to a consistent 100 degrees! The service was fantastic and the rooms were clean, roomy and just delightful to hang out in. I will certainly be returning there next year!

Close proximity to the Harpoon Brewery, the Boston Convention Center, and a couple really really douchey bars on the water (Atlantic Garden, Whiskey Priest).  

The hotel is stunning, but pricey. A nice steal if you shoot low on Priceline. The walk into downtown Boston or the T is not horrible, but can be a bit far in the winter.

Good luck if you decide not to use Valet Parking. You park in a garage that I don't think is connected to the hotel, but connected to an apartment building. It's odd when you think you're in the hotel, but you're in apartment complex and you have to exit onto the street and walk a couple blocks to the hotel. There has to be an easier way and next time I will discover it.

My only major gripe is about the place is that you have to pay for Wi-Fi and the the valet doesn't offer the suggestion to self park unless you ask.  You think with the price the charge for a nightly rate, that Wi-Fi would be included due to all the business travelers who seem to be coming in and out of the place.

It's in a solid location and with several touristy attractions nearby.  The restaurants are "MEH to NOT BAD" depending on what atmosphere you are looking for.  Jerry Remy's (solid pub fare and atmosphere) and Del Frisoes (high end steakhouse) are solid choices .  The Whisky Priest and Atlantic Beer Garden nearby are the typical Thursday through Saturday "meat markets" filled with energetic young professionals.

The rooms are nicely appointed and comfortable and the service I experience was good from the front desk to the bar.  The lobby bar seems come off more chic than it really is and is only really good for a a nightcap.  They whole "RLife" nightly entertainment concept is really tacky and cheesy setting up lights in what really is the equivalent of a Courtyard Marriott bar. It needs a better identity.  

The really should make the 606 Congress bar more accessible.  By the way, 606 is the upscale restaurant in the place that is way overpriced and empty all the multiple times I've stayed here. They look like that have a quality menu but there are other quality dining options for every expense in walking distance.

Overall, the hotel does deliver but tries too hard to be something that it isn't when it comes to dining and entertaining.

First, to dispell some mis-information in other reviews STARBUCKS IS OPEN ON THE WEEKENDS (7am-7pm).  There is free wi-fi for the public, throughout the lobby and lounge of the Rennaissance, that requires no password and no room number.  There are also one or two computer terminals set up in the lounge and lobby for guests to use, as well as several business centers that you can only access with a room key.  Wi-fi in the room does cost extra, however.  There is pretty good cable in the room, including several HBO channels to keep you busy.

Now that the Starbucks/Wifi issue is put to rest, I'll say this is my favorite hotel in the Seaport.  The rooms (while furnished a bit tacky) mostly all have water views.  There are nice products (Aveda), vending machines for drinks on every floor, a coffee and tea maker in the room, as well as a tiny refrigerator and even small touches like complementary toothpaste.  The walls are very well insulated and I couldn't hear any hallway noise, even though I was right near the elevator and ice machine.  With the door closed, I couldn't even hear the sink or toilet from the bedroom when my traveling companion used it.  

The area is fantastic.  Liberty Wharf, one block away, is the best spot in the Seaport in my opinion.  There are few upscale restaurants as well as a sports bar and a pre-made food place (J.Paces, great sandwiches!).  The hotel bar was small and unassuming but had great food, nothing too fancy, but everything fresh and prepared well; juicy chicken, rare filet minon salad.  The bar even had free live music. (Jazz one night, accoustic guitar/singer the next). Breakfast was similarly great, and the hotel offered a large breakfast buffett for 24 bucks with coffee, juice, fruit, made to order omlettes (INCLUDING LOBSTER), french toast and more if you are a huge eater, but also had small fare like a single egg benedict w/ a side of potatoes for 6 dollars.

Downtown is about a 7 dollar cab ride away, or a very scenic walk on a nice day. Silverline to the airport or South Station is right across the street.

The price of the hotel is very reasonable if there isn't a convention in the Seaport or a concert at the BofA pavillion.  When either of these things occur, nightly rate shoots up to 600 bucks.  Honestly, if I were stuck paying that for this place, I wouldn't be too sour.

This is definitely a nice hotel and if you are there when there isn't some big convention across the street, the prices are actually fairly reasonable.  The lobby, bar area, and restaurant are all very modern, clean, and spacious.  Very upscale feel and design.  The rooms fit this bill as well - nice comfortable beds, space to work, and a decent shower.  

The high pros for this hotel - AWESOME HOTEL GYM.  I mean truly 5-Star.  6 or 7 top of the line treadmills, elipticals, and a ful array of machine weights and free weights - even a cable machine and benches.  In addition, there is a lap pool and hot tub too!  

The downside - parking.  Parking is $42/night and despite the fact that there are always 5 guys just hanging out, it takes 20 minutes to get your car.

Highly recommended, but a bit out of the way.  If you are looking for central location, this may not be your place, but if you have a ride, this is a great call and better than the Marriott Long Wharf....

I LOVE this hotel! I've stayed here once before and love its proximity to the convention center (1 block). The hotel looks brand new and has cute, modern decor. It seems like they put in a lot of little details to give the place some character. (Cute things like two seashells in the room's bathroom).

Lobby - pretty with a loung/bar area on one side, a small convenience store, and a restaurant on the other side.

Room - nice and more modern than your standard Renaissance

Food - room service had some Marriott staples but also the same food they served down in the bar.

Bar - small but good selection of food. Nice variety of bar and lounge seating.

Service - everyone I came across was friendly.

Location - 1 1/2 blocks to the convention center, 15 minute cab ride from the airport. Restaurants within walking distance.

I'd definitely stay here again and think its one of the nicer hotels in the Marriot chain that I've freuented.

very nice hotel. get a decent rate if you're going to stay though. while the amenities in the room are quite up to date with dark tones and striped wallpaper, you won't really find much in the way of "free" that will help you along -- like the wifi for example. i'm not sure what's up with the hallway carpet either. it's an indication that you should reserve your own opinions regardless of what the interior designer tells you.

there are places to eat within walking distance. oh i think i even saw a water taxi that will take you to the airport as well. aquarium is within walking distance.

don't forget to self-park. valet cost is not cheap, as you can imagine.

btw, is pricey or ultra high-end in the $300 a night spectrum?

Stayed a few days for a conference.  Having gone to college in Boston, I knew that the hotel was in the middleof nowhere, but I didn't think I could make it to the 8 AM sessions if I stayed somewhere fun downtown.

Certainly it is a nice hotel - what I expect from the Renaissance line.  The bed was particularly comfortable (making those 8 AM sessions hard).  Our window faced the financial district, so we had a great view.  My roommate ate at the hotel restaraunt the first night and said it was good.

The downsides:
1) Paid wi-fi.  Very expensive paid wifi.  For the amount of time I was going to be in the room, it felt hard to justify ~$15 a day.  
2) Some checkout issues.  My roommate and I were departing on different days.  I left a day earlier and the goal was for my roommate to pay for 100% of the last day and split the others.  When I got up there was a bill for me with the proper amount.  As I left I asked the front desk if I was all set, explaining the situation.  They said everything was fine if I got the bill.  When my roommate checked out they didn't actually have it worked out correctly.
3) Our toliet ran.  The internal seal didn't seal properly, so every time after flushing it would start filling the tank again after a few minutes.  
4) We were very cold.  The thermostat said it was at 78 degrees, but we don't believe it.  Even with all of the covers on (and the thermostat set high) we were always cold at night.
5) The starbucks inside is small - not even a toaster for their bagels.  Many other starbucks within walking distance though.

Would I come back?  Sure.  I would plan on not having internet and the other issues could be easily fixed.  But when I'm on a business trip I don't want to spend time fixing issues with the room.

First the rooms.  They use Aveda (a good sign) bathroom products.  As I was here whereby we used the facilities for conference, the internet was included.  The rooms were really clean...housekeeping is great!

Unfortunately for the conference that was held on the 3rd floor, we did not get service (I guess they want us to pay attention).  Also--perhaps intentionally?--REALLY POOR phone reception, if any (I"m on Tmobile).

They have 24 hour exercise facility but I unfortunately did not get to check out.  There is also a pool, but I'm not sure if that's 24 hours as well.

Location wise, it's the middle of no-where.  It's in the marriot family.  I was dropped incorrectly (see my water taxi review) at the regular Marriot which IS in a happenin' touristy area.  The Renaissance is all business.

It's also pretty expensive!  but hey it's a paid conference so that didn't factor for me (otherwise, I'd rate it 3 stars, since they charge pretty high $ for internet access otherwise).

Great location, Clean large room, Was on 9th floor, good view of city and partial view of bay. Many restaurants close by.
Great to have a lap pool to work out in...single lane..
Concierge was helpful, although a better explanation of the transit system would be helpful..ie how to buy charlie cards, add money to them, the correct fares. Airport shuttle would be a nice touch also.
Would go back if I were to have another event at the convention center.

Nice hotel - very quiet rooms and wonderfully firm bed and pillows.  I usually can not sleep in hotels but did not have any problems here thanks to that bed/pillows/quietness (even though the hotel was very busy).  Bathroom was small and they charged $4.00 for a bottle of water; NOT.  Having just come from a Marriott in Charlotte, I was very surprised at the differences (with Charlotte winning - they actually had flavored cream for the coffee smile).  Was nice to sit and watch the planes coming/going at Logan, room service food (and banquet food) was very good.  Banquet staff very attentive (was there for a meeting).  Good central location - a lot of restaurants in walking distance and walking distance to the financial district.  I would definitely stay again.

One of the rare pleasure trips we went on, my boyfriend got a great deal on this hotel. Great location for our St Pattie's Day week, within walking distance to a number of great restaurants and Southie, which saved a ton of money in cab fares. Harpoon Brewery was close too--which came in real handy for the brewery tour we did.

The hotel is beautiful, the service was great and the best part was that the room was the cleanest I've ever seen a room in a hotel. It's always the small yet quality things in the room--the coffee, the soaps and shampoos were nice enough to know I can leave my toiletries bag at home next time. The view from the window was a bonus-water view and all. It was a great experience and we'll definitely stay here when we're back in town.

I stayed here 8/17/12 for one night. I came for a concert at B of A Pavilion and picked this one for its unbeatable proximity to the venue. The room was nice and I liked the empty refridgerator for storing my adult beverages. This saved me a bundle. The beds are on the extreme firm side so that will be an issue for some. The towels need to be replaced as they are rough and scratchy for a 4 star hotel.  Due to the friday night traffic/lack of time/parking I used the valet service which was expensive ($44!) If I return I will arrive earlier and get an overnight spot in one of the cheaper nearby lots. I didn't try the hotel restaurant as there are other food options within walking distance.

Tip: the Harpoon brewery is about a 5-10 minute walk. Get there early and book yourself a 5$ tasting tour if you are a beer fan. They sell out fast! The concierge told us you cant buy tickets just show up which was half true (they sell the tickets to different tour times first come first serve) so when we got there we were surprised they sold tickets to tours two hours in advance. Not having time we skipped the tour but plan to try next time. Overall the hotel was nice, convenient, and clean but for the price it has areas that could be improved such as the beds, towels, and concierge service.

Stayed here for one night and let me tell u, this place is absolutely gorgeous! But can be extremely expensive! Luckily we had a family friend discount. They have valet right out front but instead we decided to park and walk. Little did we know they didn't have their own parking garage so we had to use public parking a couple blocks down and walk with all our luggages. (Prob should've used valet)... When we checked in the receptionist seemed nice. Took a little while for her to get our check in done but it was worth the wait. She then directed us to the elevators which took us up and up to our floor and upon exiting the elevator, there is this incredible view of Boston! Our room was spacious and the bed was so comfortable! I absolutely loved the bathroom! I wish my bathroom had the glass door shower look to it! Check out was super easy because you can do it over the tv! Technology these days! That was a plus cuz it saved us time from having to stand in line downstairs! Besides the receptionist, we ran into the cleaning lady and she was super nice! The only thing is... Before we were even up and ready to check out, she must of knocked on our door like three times and I'm assuming just to see if we were gone so she could clean. I did come to the door the last two times and she was gone. The first time I was still sleeping and heard the door but refused to answer it and just went back to bed. Overall tho, I had a great night sleep that night and would def recommend this hotel if you have money to spare!

Disclaimer: I am card carrying member of their loyalty program and a huge fan.

That being said, choosing your accomodations in a city truly depend on what you plan to do and where you need to go.  Without considering those factors...who knows what kind of experience you will have.  Frankly, complaining that is far from popular attractions or knocking points off because the roar of jet engines throughout the night is unfair to the establishment....that is entirely your fault. And I'm coming down from  my soapbox now....

Having stayed at various Marriott properties in the Boston area, this one is definitely my favorite!  This hotel is recently redone and beautiful! Since I am often in Boston to see clients, I enjoy the nice straight walk down Congress to all of my clients in the financial district.  There are plenty of local restaurants to keep you busy but the North End is a quick cab away too.

The amenities are nothing special but they often leave you a nice full travel size of toothpaste in your bathroom.  That is genius...one less thing for me to pack!  Wish this was a standard that I could count on.

Great stay at the Renaissance.

We stayed here for a few days while visiting Boston. It's in the waterfront area near restaurants and the silver line bus which was very convenient. The silver line took us to the subway and we traveled around from there. The hotel is very nice and clean. The staff was helpful and friendly. The bartenders  at the hotel bar were awesome.

The only con is the parking. The have valet and it's $46 a night. You can park it yourself at other lots in the area. We found another lot a block away that was a lot cheaper. Overall, it was a great stay at the Renaissance.

WUNDERBAR! One of my favoritest hotels eva.

They had CITRUS WATER IN LOBBY.omg.omg.omg...limes, lemons, oranges...yay!
I really love when they have that; especially perfect given I was a tourist, always thirsty from traipsing around all of Boston all day long. Coming back to the hotel to have a readily accessible source of fruitily-infused water was just awesome.

The overall decor of the place was great - I felt super fancy being here. The room was awesome and the beds are suuuuper duper comfy.

PLUS the staff was always very kind and helpful.

The location is the only down-side...it's in a cool area I suppose; it's just not near the center of Boston where we always wanted to be. So that could be better, but otherwise I love this place.

Whenever I'm traveling in Boston, I stay here.

Decent hotel, the Renaissance's usually are, but the are renovating the restaurant and the diner menu for room services is just burgers and salads. During the winter when its really freezing out and you want to stay in and work, makes getting work done in your room hard. Since I work in my room at nights a bunch, this is a big inconvenience.
Also, I'm not a big fan of paid wifi...who doesn't use wifi in their rooms on a week night and your in town on business? Just another way to fee up the profits. Be like other good business hotels and add the wifi in the price.

Great place to stay if you don't mind a short walk (like a mile) to the more central downtown areas where you want to roam. Modern, good service, good bedding, not too noisy - bottom line is it's a good value and quality for the price.

I stayed at this hotel twice. I liked it because they greet you at your vehicle with a waiting trolley. They have door men dressed professionally and they make check in very easy. The rooms are great and the only complaint I had was the miscommunication about the pool. Other than that everything was amazing. And the views were downright amazing.

Great hotel in a pretty good location.

Hotel is modern and fresh.  One side of the hotel gives you great shots of the water and the seaport.  Rooms are spacious and comfortable with plush beds

Easy to get to, it is right off the Silver Line so easy to get there by public transportation from the airport and for those who don't want to catch the bus, it is about a ten minute taxi ride that will cost you about 15 dollars.

The Seaport area appears to be an up and coming area with plenty of restaurants and other things within walking distance.

There is a restaurant and lounge on site with interesting features.  There is a nice patio right off the pool and exercise area for lounging.

There are some negatives, they don't have free in room Wifi which I think is a joke for any major hotel to still charge for Internet,  especially a high end hotel. There are two computers in the lobby with free Internet access but who wants to go through all of that.

Towels are a bit rough and scratchy to the skin.  Also they only use 1 ply toilet paper, come on people upgrade to 2 ply, have some respect for the skin of your guest.

Overall really enjoyed my experience and time at the Renaissance and would make a return visit in the future.

There's a lot to like about this hotel.

First, the friendliness of the staff here.  They do seem to go out of their way to make you smile or to take care of you, I like that.

Secondly, location.  Within walking distance of a good selection of restaraunts, dining, and other activities, the harbor front is kind of up and coming, and this hotel is very central to that.  

Thirdly, it has a nice situation of social spots, a nice lounge where if you are here for a conference you can mingle with people you sort of know, a nice restaurant, and a Starbucks, for those so coffee inclined in the mornings.

The room is nice, the beds are comfy.  Watch out for this master ight switch though.  It's marked well enough but if it's off, no light works in the room at all... odd right?

If I have to come back to this area of Boston again, I would definatly stay here.  

If you want to see the rest of Boston, and happen to be here, it's a bit out of the way for you.  There are a couple of options, you can take the Old Towne Trolley tours, a two day pass is 39$ BUT is worth it because it's an on and off tour where they take you all around town and you can just get off and back on another trolley at your leisure.  There is a stop right next to the hotel so it's a good thing to pick up your two day pass and use it.  

Also, there is a water ferry that goes from the airport to a block of the hotel, if you want a more scenic route to get to the hotel from the airport.  I wouldn't recommend it for it's speed however :)

What a terrifying night at this hotel,  a loud blaring alarm went off in our room at 130am, telling us to standby and stay in our rooms. I had a panic attack from being woken up from a deep sleep in this manner, my ears are still ringing from the volume of the alarm. The front desk didn't answer the phone there was total confusion, 30 minutes later another super loud blaring alarm from the loudspeaker in our room said "nevermind" no sleep for me tonight,  I am stuck here for a few more days and not looking forward to it.

*4.5 stars.*

I'm truly a Marriott girl at heart and would come back to this particular Renaissance in a heartbeat.  The great service started before I even got there, with the wonderful concierge services organizing a delivery of cookies & milk to our room upon our arrival (I called ahead and arranged!).

Beautiful lobby, clean & very nicely appointed rooms, early check-in, friendly front desk staff, yummy room service, excellent bartender in the lobby bar, nice sauna, and prime location to the water/Bank of America Pavilion (very easy walking distance).

Some negatives:
-WiFi was really pricey, but luckily this was a leisure trip so we didn't really need it anyway.
-Parking is at a premium (this is a city, after all), so we opted for a slightly cheaper parking garage across the street at $36 for 24 hours.
-One slight hiccup we encountered was when we tried to split the room charges at check out...even after re-running it, the front desk still ended up charging just one of us.  Minor, but annoying, inconvenience.
-Nothing but chain restaurants around this bad boy.  Just a personal preference, but worth a mention for the other food snobs of the world.

The Goods
1-The rooms are gigantic
2-The bathroom is gigantic
3-The shower is gigantic
4-Everything in the room looks new- carpet, furniture, wallpaper
5-The lobby area and reception desk are just gorgeous
6-Really nice location near the seaport, harbor and Trade Center -bars and restaurants all over

The Bads

e) The iPod/radio player didnt work at first- luckily my hi-tech son figured it out - a wire was loose
f) The big flatscreen TV didnt work at first- luckily my hi-tech son figured it out - a wire was loose

Conclusions
A gorgeous luxurious hotel. But it'll cost ya.

Stayed here for one night. Place is modern, clean, and had a cool view of Logan. Could watch planes coming and going right from my bed out of the window. Room 1618. Flat screen tv, iPod Dock, cold AC. Two bottles of Evian in the room too. Place was quiet in the morning. Didn't hear toilets flushing, showers running, or doors slamming. You can hear the rumble of the jets from Logan. Had guest WiFi but I couldn't connect to it. Would stay again.

The Renaissance Boston Waterfront Hotel is a five-star hotel especially in the area of service and decorum. Our navigator/concierge Eishha Beatty was the best. Her recommendations for food and entertainment were on point and she followed up when you returned. She was a major part of the enjoyment of this hotel.

The service during the conference was excellent beverages coffee even down to the table setting and the giant diamond center pieces this place was on point in every way. The food was excellent during our mixer, breaks and our breakfast and lunches. The box lunch was excellent. I had the  vegetarian  lunch it was perfect for my return flight to Los Angeles.

The fitness room was par excellent, and the baggage claim fellows especially Ricardo Alblard, was very helpful going the second mile. Even to guys at the front door and valet parking everybody made this a wonderful place to stay be sure to stay in the Renaissance Boston Waterfront Hotel when you return to Boston. Live in the lap of luxury.

The room was clean and well taken care of, but the mattress was old and broken in to bodies much larger than mine. Sometimes I felt like I was sinking in. Luckily, the friendly staff and pristine facilities made up for it.

There is a long pool and a small hot tub at the hotel. The bars were nice with a good selection and a comfy setup. The Starbucks in the lobby is convenient for breakfast or a caffeine.

You have to pay for internet in your room, but you can get free WiFi in the lobby or bar.

Some tips if staying here. For breakfast the Drydock Cafe is about a 7 minute walk.  Great place and cheap.  Also during the week on the other side of the Seaport hotel there is Sebastians.  Great crepes and breakfast sandwiches,  Free wifi here.

The seaport hotel has a great coffee bar and a nice two floor lobby to enjoy it.

Liberty Wharf is loaded with great bars just itching to get your business.  Don't leave without walking around the Commonwealth Pier.

The Silverline is free from logan and drops you right near the hotel. mbta.com

Listen... My room down the block was not ready... So as a frequent flyer of the Ren Chicago Bar Novo... I thought I'd catch a cocktail and a cappucino...

Only the bartendress was too busy watching a very important football game...

After two other "guests" got tired of waiting and left, I finally asked if I could have cappucino, she told me she would try....

Ha!  I don't know if it was the smokey voice, the blue eye shadow, or the fact that she was gonna try...

I told her to not hurt herselfand exited stage left.

Overall it was a very nice hotel. We stayed there for one night on a weekend trip into Boston. It was very busy while checking in, but the staff was great and very nice. We had a lot of trouble with our room key because one of their machines was broken. After killing an extra half an hour just trying to get into our room, we finally ventured out. The hotel is in a good location. It's by some nice restaurants and around the corner from Harpoon Brewery. After arriving back at the hotel later that night, we enjoyed drinks in their bar/lounge area while listening to a live band. We enjoyed that experience!

The major downfall of this hotel was the valet parking. We came down the next morning ready to get on the road, and it seemed like everyone was being brought their cars except us. The guy in the valet office told us to go outside and wait, but when we did, we were ignored again. We watched everyone else get their cars before we finally said something, and they guy then proceeded to finally get our car. They were too busy "chatting" with a customer and hanging out. It was very disappointing to be treated like that and have terrible valet service at the end of a nice hotel stay.

Large hotel located in the waterfront area. Walking distance to several great restaurants and entertainment venues like Laugh Boston and Blue Hills Bank pavilion.

Iots of other great hotels near the convention center here but this one has a great staff, good restaurant, Starbucks and a solid business center.

Look out for the Chicken and Rice guys food truck. So good! Usually on Thompson rd on Friday afternoons.

I should be embarrassed to say what I asked these people for but they were so great about every request I must write a glowing review. A few things I asked for while staying here:
1. A new room because mine was too loud. Turns out it was a concert below that couldn't be fixed but they happily relocated me anyway.
2. Extra lettuce for my salad. I know...so high maintenance but they brought it right up without even asking what kind of lunatic prefers more lettuce to all the wonderful other things they loaded the salad with. (Room service is excellent.)
3. An additional desk chair so my colleague and I could meet and work together at the spacious desk. Again- no questions asked and prompt delivery.
4. FedEx service. My bag was too heavy and the concierge took a box full of my things and shipped them home for me with just a credit card number. I was rushing to an international flight and she took the entire problem off my hands in about five minutes. The bellman also came over with a luggage scale.
6. I asked for a certain beer in the bar and the bartender took the name down and said he'd try and get it for next time. I didn't ask for this- his suggestion. Really, I'm not a monster.
7. They also provided package delivery to my room with no package handling fee. (Like everyone I order from Amazon if I forget something.)

The rooms are lovely, clean and new. The bathroom is also nice even though the lights are dim enough to encourage clown makeup. A makeup mirror would be nice. Although this is a part of town I probably wouldn't explore without a conference nearby, it was nice enough that I'd consider staying there again for no reason at all.

I could go on but it looks like there are plenty of other four and five star reviews to tell you more.

Yes it's pretty and well maintained, but my issue was a limited food option both at the restaurant and room service. I am vegetarian and gluten free.... Yes it's not always the easiest to find food options, but I'm not picky and there are few basic things every hotel is able to prepare.... and normally hotels help me find an item or two on their menu and they cooperate with my food restrictions (mind you I stay at a hotel once a week at least!)... This was rather poorly manage kitchen/room service... Had to leave the hotel in this freezing temperature we have right now to search for food.... Not cool Id say... First they told me there's nothing on the menu. I simply asked to steam or sauté a few vegetables, whichever ones they had. That's all.... They finally agreed. When my room service arrived my vegetables were prepared with bacon mixed in them LOL

Location, location, location...

You are close to so much! You can walk to the Harpoon Brewery, the harbor, and many great restaurants.

The whole stay was nice... The bellman and valets are are quick to greet and grab your bags.

Check in was fast... and who does not like to be upgraded?

The rooms are bright and clean, comfy beds and pillows, the Aveda products are always a nice touch.

The concierge floor has a nice happy hour with a spectacular view of the harbor.

The restaurant has the nicest staff and a wonderful breakfast. The bar is cool with plenty of work space, so you can enjoy a cocktail while you finish your work for the day.

Bonus... Starbucks in the lobby!

The price is decent as Boston is expensive.

This was the hotel of choice on my latest trip to Boston.  We picked this particular location because of price.  I am a loyal Marriott member so I stick on their brand of hotels.  When I saw a Rennaissance brand that was a little over $100/night I was in!  I later found out, after arriving, that this location is actually not that close to all of the dining and tourist spots I wanted to visit.  The room and the hotel itself was exquisite.  

You could hop on the silver line to take you to the closest station: South Station or Park St so that you could hop on one of the other lines.  I did check out the pool and gym area, this one has a sauna in both the men's and women's changing area.  It would have been nice if it was in the middle so my gf and I could share it.

I stayed here this weekend and really liked a lot of things about this place. The location was great. It was a block away from the water and there were several nice restaurants in the area. The room was very clean, but for the price we paid ($399+tax), I expected a little more. It was a nice room with a waterfront view, but there was no table with chairs, just a desk so when we had room service delivered, only one of us had a place to sit. There's valet which was $46 a day and it took about 10-15 minutes for the car to be delivered. Also, the service overall was slow at best. I called for more towels because they only gave us 2 and they never came. We had to call again to get more. The last thing is that the shower leaked all over the floor. It didn't appear to be broken, it just seems to have been missing a sealant. Other than the minor negatives, I would give it another try!

We lucked upon this location while looking for a place to stay when in the city for a volleyball  event at the Convention  Center.  We had a reservation  at another  high end hotel, at the last minute  we learned they were not able to honor our reservation  for a room with a second bed.  

The property  is very nice and in a great  location and in walking  distance of the convention  center and a lot of great places to eat.

The staff was great and got us into our room two hours  before  check in because  our daughter  had a 2 pm game.

I was in Boston for two days to take a deposition and stayed at the Renaissance in Boston's Seaport District.  The location is a little bit out of the way, but for work, it was a perfect oasis for me since I had to lock myself in a room and finish my outlines.

I took advantage of the room service, exercise room, business center, and hotel restaurant.  All these amenities offer business travelers convenience and predictability.  The room was modern, spacious, and gave me an excellent view of the harbor.

If I'm in Boston for work, I'm sure I'll stay here again.

Love this place! Great area, on point valet service (not too expensive, under $50 for overnight parking and they let us keep our car there until 5pm the next day), clean hotel. Room had a mini fridge also.

Great customer service. My friend had an issue that was fixed right away.

Easy to get to from the highway and surrounded by lots of great restaurants and bars.
Hotel bar had great espresso martinis and other cocktails.
Can't wait to go back!
