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.

Location

The hotel was very nice and the staff helpful but the location and its distance to key boston attractions is less than desireable given the price.

Good weekend getaway hotel

I booked hotel for weekend getaway with Kids. The hotel offers great indoor pool and gym. The Rooms were clean and the room service is was great. However; the parking fee over thirty dollars seemed overpriced while you can street park in front of hotel. We enjoyed the stay and probably come back here again!

Very over rated.

In town for the Sox, of course, and the 4th of July, which was amazingly crazy. Hotel atmosphere was kind of snotty if you know where i'm coming from. Maybe a good business person type of hotel but thats probably it. They charge for internet, parking is $42 a night, and the rooms were kind of on the small side. One good thing, we brought our dog and no charge for that, just had to sign a waver.

Westin Boston Waterfront

Overall, I thought the hotel was too over priced given the small rooms, lacks of personal (what hotel doesn't offer a hairdryer in the room!!!) and travel conveniences, such as no shuttle to airport, costing us an additional $20. And, no shuttle before 5:00 pm. Not a child friendly hotel, this is basically a place for business, nothing else. I ws very disappointed and should have stayed closer to the city, this is a good 2-3 mile walk to Fanueil Hall.

Great Stay in Boston

It is always great to stay at Westin. If I had it to do over again I might have stayed at the Westin at Copley Place for convienence. It is right in the heart of downtown.

Best of the best in the area

The most wonderful and cheerful staff I have ever experienced. I have never felt as well rested after a nights sleep. The best hotel experience that I have ever stayed in.

Nightlife tip: Short drive from hotel

The staff will call a cab outside for you and the oldest bars in America, where our founding fathers planned the revolution, is a ~$10 cab ride away.
