It is in the name, Renaissance, that something innovative exists. Therefore, it should be no surprise that the Renaissance Boston Waterfront Hotel is fully equipped with top-notch amenities and does not cut corners when it comes to luxury. This is obvious given that the hotel was just built in 2008 and already renovated in 2017.

Located in the Seaport District of South Boston, Massachusetts, the Renaissance Boston Waterfront Hotel is in an optimal location for a romantic celebration, business event, or exciting vacation.

The Pacific Grand Ballroom makes a beautiful wedding reception venue. This 10,744 square foot room can hold up to 1,000 guests! Not to mention that there are 471 guest rooms for any late-night wedding dancers or out-of-town guests. The flower girl and ring bearer probably wouldn't mind visiting the Boston Children's Museam which is located less than 1 mile away.

Nothing says “business savvy” like 10 designated meeting rooms and a location that is walking distance from the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center. The Renaissance Boston Waterfront Hotel provides functional meeting spaces with beautiful coastal views.

Guests can choose from single rooms, double rooms, and suites. Each guest has access the property’s indoor and heated pools, sauna, hot tub, and fitness center for leisure. In terms of dining, there is a convenient restaurant and bar located on the hotel property. Room service is also available in addition to breakfast. Furthermore, Sam Adams Brewery is nearby for guests who enjoy letting loose with a cold pint.

Clearly, the Renaissance Boston Waterfront Hotel is able to cater to a diverse demographic due to its top-notch amenities and multi-lingual staff. Guests can enjoy an ocean view and easy access to local attractions. The 20,000 square feet of meeting space ensures that events of all kinds can take advantage of the property. Much like the Renaissance era, this hotel is a symbol of innovation.

7.1 Good
Pros:Good location, friendly staff.
Cons:Room was really small. Bathroom was very tight. And the beds were not comfortable at all, which was surprising.
10.0 Excellent
Pros:The location was perfect. Great view of the Seaport and water. Neighborhood seemed safe and commercial. The concierge suggested a couple of in-the-know place to see in the area.
Cons:Parking was not included in my nightly rate. Parking around the hotel was somewhat difficult to find; was able to park in the street because of the holiday.
7.4 Good
Cons:Exercise facilities were packed in mornings and hotel restaurants and bar closed early around 11 pm, even on weekend nights. Having stayed at other hotels in the area I would say the price was a little high for the accomodations but defintely not ridiculous.
10.0 Excellent
Pros:Clean, spacious rooms and friendly, helpful staff.
Cons:Pool was closed but they offered the Seaport across the street.
8.0 Great
Pros:The staff was very helpful and the room was up to par. I would not hesitate to return.
9.7 Excellent
Cons:Parking. There was plenty available, however 64 dollars to park overnight is entirely too much.
9.4 Excellent
Pros:Great hotel
Cons:Wish a continental breakfast was included in price.
10.0 Excellent
Pros:Everything was on point. The early check in, house keeping, room service and friendly staff made my stay awesome and I will be staying here again most definitely when visiting from L.A.
8.0 Great
Pros:Hotel was nicely decorated in a nautical theme......a mix of modern and whimsical tht worked well, particularly in this location. Housekeeping staff and room service.......5 stars. The only problem we encountered occurred at check in......which was close to 3:00am. After flying all day we finally arrived,in the pouring rain. the parking attendant was so engrossed in watching a movie on his phone tht another employee had to bang on the glass......then actually open the door and tap him on the shoulder to get his attention. unlike other better hotels, he did not hold the door....or help us wth luggage and packages. We were exhausted. Unfortunately, his command of the language was almost nil. I spelled my last name (happens to b a common name) but he could not understand wht I was saying. He asked me to fill out my name, they did not have the type of room we were promised. Again, communication was a HUGE 3:00am !!! my daughter kept saying ........sofa bed........and King bed. The desk clerk kept saying I asked for the manager. They supervisor. Finally, after much.....way too much conversation.......they gave us the room we were promised. an hour later, another desk clerk apologized for the mix up and offered us free wifi . From there on everything was good with a very few glitches.
Cons:Concierge not helpful. A few staff absolutely cannot communicate with virtually no command of the language. Bellmen were NOT helpful other than to get our car. They don't open doors.......don't help if you have packages........concierge also not real helpful. Gave us misinformation re trolley tours......not particularly friendly or helpful. Cleanliness, pleasant decor, overall good service and better prices......all good reasons to return. Housekeeping staff.......5 Stars!
8.8 Great
Pros:hotel and room was very nicely decorated.
Cons:wifi should be included for what a room costs
