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."

Boston Weekend

A huge group of us stayed at the Westin for a wedding. The bar was very nice and we were able to do some post-wedding drinking at the bar area and the staff was very accommodating. Location was walking distance to the revitalized Waterfront area. Best part of hotel was that they are VERY pet friendly.

Great hotel was ripped off on price!!

I was on a trip with friends, the hotel and rooms are amazing however I paid extra money to have a city view, and was not given this room so basically I paid extra $ for nothing!!! The hotel staff did not care, said it was [...] responsibility and shuffled me out!If I ever go into Boston againI will probably not book at this hotel or through [...]again!

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 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.
