Everything was great. Great area near lots of great restaurants shops and the waterfront. The only down side was the valet parking was $45/day and found out when leaving the car was parked in the lot next door where I could've paid 25/day. My fault but would've been nice to have that offered...

We have been here for the last 5 years. Always great place to stay. Avoid the restaurant, you have better options in walking distance.The rooms are fresh and new. Bathrooms are classy and fresh. The Hotel Bar is a little slow.

I stayed here for business and would come back for a personal trip in a heart beat. The staff were friendly and went above and beyond service wise to make the visit memorable. I stayed for three nights and traveled to the convention center each day, which wasn't hard to do via foot.

This hotel is beautiful. We checked out early at the Hyatt due to the dirtiness there and booked here for the night. So glad we did. The room is very clean and the staff very friendly. I will stay here for now on when I visit BOSTON.

First time visitor here. Being from Boston area, I do not tend to stay at a hotel, but stayed after a concert at the Garden.

This hotel has a very convenient location to al Seaport restaurants. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. The lap pool, hot tub and workout room made the cold weather seem far away. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. The one gotcha is the parking is very expensive. The options are to use the hotel valet or park in one...

This is one of the first Marriott hotels we have stayed at and it was a great experience. We are avid Hilton customers and didn't know what to expect here. We joined the loyalty program before we booked, and they greeted us as members as soon as we arrived. The room was clean and believe me that is number one...

I will start by saying, this review is for the hotel....not for the restaurant! I will get to that later! This hotel is top notch. I am a Marriott premium member. The view from the higher floors is fantastic. I hate heights and elevators! However, this elevator is quick and the doors open fast! I had a great view of...

Fantastic hotel, easy walk to art institute. Pizza parlor just around the corner and the seafood restaurants to get lobster rolls, very easy to get to. Silver line just across the parking lot made it easy to go to Boston Univ., where my daughter was at lacrosse camp. Beautifully appointed rooms felt like a boutique hotel. Front desk staff had...

Lovely. We got a good price. But WiFi is extra. No free breakfast. Easy to get to by MT Silver Line stops across the street. Comfy beds. Plenty of pillows. Refrigerator and on the same floor is the ice and soda machine.
