Neighborhood
The hotel is located in the expanding Seaport District, which is just a stroll from the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center. A walk down the street will take you to the Harpoon Brewery, and the ferry docks are just across the street. Boston is big on culture, and the Renaissance Boston Waterfront is in an ideal location to visit the Institute of Contemporary Art, which emphasizes work that is both innovative and creative.
Hints and tips
If you want to enjoy amazing water views, ask for a room overlooking the harbor, but if you prefer to lie in bed and watch planes take flight, ask for a room with views of Logan International Airport (BOS).
For peace and quiet, request a room that is not located above a ballroom, since the hotel is a popular destination for weddings and other large events.

Convenient to Waterfront

A very nice hotel. A newer place with a bit of a Boutique Hotel feel. It is actually near the waterfront, not on it. Just a block or so away from World Trade Center and the P-Town ferries and a block away from the "T". Only reason we stayed here was because of an online deal and its proximity to downtown.

Heading to the airport...take the water taxi or regular taxi. While the Silverline bus/train depot is close, you can only get there by bus which is 20+ minutes and is quite a rough ride...not to mention usually packed with people and luggage.
