What to Expect at Westin Boston Waterfront
You can enjoy sweeping city skyline and Boston Harbor views from many of the hotel's 793 guest rooms and suites.
Because the Westin Waterfront is fairly new, rooms are larger than those in many of Boston's older hotels - so if you want plenty of space at an attractive rate, this is where to make your reservations.
Although connected access to the Boston Convention Center makes the Westin an obvious choice for convention attendees, savvy business travelers know that the location is also a quick walk (or cab ride) to the downtown Financial District, while offering lots of space and top-end amenities.
Harpoon Brewery offers tours at their facility on Northern Ave.
Keep in mind that Boston Common, the historic Freedom Trail, Faneuil Marketplace, TD Garden, and lots of other top attractions can be easily reached by a short ride on the Silver Line or water taxi. But if the weather is nice, walking from South Station is faster (8-10 minutes).
Which Rooms have the Best Views at the Westin Waterfront?
Ask for a room on a higher floor to enjoy the best city skyline or Harbor views.
Harbor views are nice if you wake up early and want to enjoy the sunrise over the water. But if you're going to be there in the evening, the city skyline views can be spectacular.
Getting to the Westin Waterfront from Boston Logan Airport
If you're arriving at Boston Logan Airport, getting here is easy - just hop on a water taxi and zip across the Harbor, or take the Silver Line (actually a bus, but technically part of Boston's subway system) to the World Trade Center station.
Although no onsite parking is available, but you can use valet parking. A cheaper option, if you don't need in/out service, is to drop off your bags at the hotel (give them a call if you need help with your bags) and then head to a garage.
