"Great for a conference"
Staying here was definitely a splurge for me, but it took all hassle out of attending a conference that was based here. Front desk staff were great. The conference spaces and staff were outstanding. The hotel common areas are nice to relax in. There is a bar and a restaurant inside the hotel, though we didn't go to either. My room was clean and included a safe and an appliance called a "cooler" that looked like a mini-fridge, designed to keep things cold rather than cool warm things down. The bathroom did not have a fan. The hotel's jacuzzi was out of service during my stay. An issue with my room was ultimately resolved to my satisfaction. The location is outstanding--right next to the Aquarium, the subway, and the waterfront, with several restaurants on the same corner and many more a short walk away. The Boston Common and the North End are easily walkable from the hotel as well. I would stay here again for business convenience, but for the price I would not consider it a good value for pleasure travel.
"Spring break vacation"
The Marriott was wonderful! Lovely view of the bay area. Shopping and restaurants very close for walking. You can get a tour bus right outside the hotel. We had a wonderful time! Lots of entertainment and street vendors. Definitely plan on returning to explore more of this cities history!
"Not what we expected !"
Our first time at this Marriott and big disappointment to say the least! Would take too long to explain all our issues........ many issues with the first suite and had to relocate after two days and more issues with the second suite! Very dated furnitures, and old and dirty walls..... Very bad housekeeping !!! Had to run water over five minutes in order to take a hot shower!! Lobby is above ground, you have to take the escalator to go up . Bar gets extremely loud with many drunk people even coming from the outside, and bartender keeps on serving them!!! One evening we couldn't even have a conversation because of them. We had breakfast once and it was very good. It's a lot money to pay when you have a such big disappointment, you pay a lot for the location.
"Tricked into an interior room"
Upon check in we requested early check-in and we were told that we could if we took a room where the windows were frosted, we could. Don't let this mis-lead you, the room is interior and with no day light. It was like being in a basement. They also said it came with free valet parking and we were charged for the parking.
"Night required after flight over from UK before getting Hire car"
Arrived at the door an excellent service concierge was good both at night and in Morning. Got all our luggage up to our room and back in the Taxi in the morning . We were tired and just had a snack before going to our room very quiet, Breakfast in the morning excellent.
