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."

Good Value

Great value for a holiday weekend and very clean. Beds are very comfortable, showers and bathrooms clean. Check-in/out was quick. Rooms were quiet, equipped w/ coffee maker, flat screen tv's, dual nozzle shower heads. Not much else within the immediate vicinity but within walking distance to the harbor front and financial district and downtown.

Great location in Boston

This hotel has a crisp, new feel to it, and the location is great, just a short walk to the Silver Line (service to the airport and downtown). Also not a bad walk into downtown (about 15 minutes). I got around town entirely on foot or using the train without any logistical issues. The room was very comfortable and very quiet.

Great Staff

I just want to say that this hotel was very clean and comfortable. The fitness center was great.The staff was excellent the housekeeping in particular was a lifesaver,when I left my diamond ring in the room and was unable to find it she searched the room twice before finding it and returning it to me. She and the manager on duty were excellent in assisting me. Would definately stay here again.

convenient for meeting

My husband attended a meeting at the hotel so it was very convenient. We enjoyed the dining experience. During the meeting, I (wife) took a trolley tour of Boston and the trolley picked me up and dropped me off at the hotel. I was able to buy the ticket at the hotel also. We had a nice view of Boston from the hotel also.

Too much for too little.

Check in was very fast and friendly as were the staff. The television and the hair dryer kept shutting off and it was pretty aggravating. When my son tried to call the front desk the phone was sometimes not answered or they kept him on hold for a very long period of time. The view that I had was suposed to be of Boston Skyline and it was, the very tip top of it and most of the view was of the conference center which abuts this building. Really not satisfied...Like I said I paid way too much for too little.
