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."

This is not a comprehensive list of fees. Any amounts listed above may not include taxes and are subject to change.

very clean and modern

The location of this hotel is a little out of the way. In booking I actually made a mistake by thinking that the hotel was the Westin in the Copley area which would have been better for shopping and site seeing. The nature of my trip was for business, but I also visited with my son and his wife and child while I was there. The location did not hamper my ability to go where I needed to go.

Good Find

Stayed at this hotel for one night, it's located in South Boston right by the new convention center. The area itself is kind of dead with nothing to do but the hotel is really nice. The staff was friendly, the rooms were clean, and the restaurants inside the hotel were cheap with delicious food.

Good location, nice hotel

Stayed 3 nights - business trip - location great for taking taxi's anywhere - staff friendly, room excellent, dble headed shower was excellent - shame it didn't have a fan in the bathroom - 2nd person showering became more like a sauna in there. Room service excellent, on-site Restaurants good - try the Irish one and the Lobster roll - so good went back a 2nd night for same meal. Everything in Boston I thought was expensive in general, but compared to other hotels prices this one wasn't too bad - plus no reportings of bed bugs which sold us on staying here - overall very nice experience and would definitely stay here again and recommend to anyone.
