This was our second stay at the Westin Boston Waterfront Hotel. We came in for one night for a wedding. I had called early Saturday morning to see if our early check in could be granted since our wedding started at 3. They were full the night before so couldn't guarantee but said that we could use the locker room if need be. I called again at 11am when we were 30 minutes away and asked if any chance one room was ready (we booked two--one for us one for my inlaws) They said one room was already ready! Great! Half hour later, we arrived and both rooms were ready! AWESOME! Front desk was friendly, as usual. A fabulous place to stay! We will be back!

I booked my room in October for a stay in February. I got a cheery email "welcome" confirmation the day before - but upon arrival was told WE DON'T HAVE A ROOM FOR YOU. Rule is, you have to cancel 24 hours in advance, but the hotel can cancel you at anytime. I insisted I was not leaving -- so they gave me a room with a couch. All the fluffy hogwash about "caring about your stay" does not matter if they don't honor their basic commitment to honor your reservation.

Rated 2 out of 5 by LizL Missed the mark for a 5-star hotel
This hotel looks impressive but my experience did not reflect a quality establishment. Some examples: my bedside phone does not work. The "express service" calls I made were not answered. We were served stale rolls for our hotel-catered lunch. My room was not cleaned until I called for service. And the cleaning service was poor, with used paper cups not picked up and table surfaces not cleaned. Many of the hotel bathroom sinks didn't have soap. The list goes on. This hotel needs a higher quality standard, especially for the prices it charges.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Unsatisfied99 Lack of attention to details
My perception is that the hotel is setup to deal with with a large influx of people at once (e.g a convention). With that mindset in place the hotel staff doesnt value individual travellers.
It starts with the staff at the check-in counter who always seem to be in a rush and frequently forget important details (e.g. setting up your room key for parking).
Then there are the small details that just aggravate travellers: the requested newspaper is not outside my door, coffee has not be replenished, room requests not fulfilled, room key doesnt work in the garage ect...
Gold status doesnt seem to matter.
I will no longer stay in this hotel.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Lookingforacleanroom Feces stained bathroom wall
Since increasing my traveling during 2013, I have been less than impressed with the overall quality of my stays at Starwood properties. My last two stays have been nice with the exception of the cleanliness of the rooms. During this last stay the room was clean, cozy and friendly, however the bathroom was disgusting. The wall next to the toilet paper had multitudes of dried feces and urine plastered to the wall ( I am happy to share pictures of this with you). So while your staff has focused on making sure the tiles are clean, the area near and around the toilet has been ignored for quite some time.
Upon sharing this with your staff at checkout, I was asked, “how was your stay and what can I do for you?” sure this is a natural way to ignore the situation but really what I would love to hear is, can you send me the picture so I can share it with the head of housekeeping, or really sorry this should not happen here.
don't ask for 1409
