The revitalized Boston Waterfront bustles with activity, from culinary to cultural—including the city's stunning new landmark: the Institute of Contemporary Art. The area offers terrific options for runners or walkers, but of course guests may also enjoy easy access to water taxis, ferries and tour boats as well as the T train.
Steps from The Westin Boston Waterfront, an aquatic shuttle takes you to the historic Boston Harbor Islands—a national park like no other. It includes 34 islands that lie within the large "C" shape of Boston Harbor.
It's a quick ride to the Back Bay, the Financial District, and family attractions such as the New England Aquarium and the Boston Children’s Museum.
Shoppers will be happy to know that Downtown Crossing, Boston’s historic shopping district, is just 10 minutes from the hotel. The district is home to more than 300 boutiques and specialty shops—from buttons to books—as well as major department stores, including Macy’s. All around the marketplace, pushcart vendors offer enticing food options and the kind of colorful merchandise that makes shopping here a unique experience.
Also not far from the hotel is Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall. It's the seat of American history and the site of one of America's most famous shopping and dining experiences, Faneuil Hall Marketplace. For over 250 years, the marketplace has played an integral role in the life of Boston's residents.
