Located in Boston's booming Seaport neighborhood, the Renaissance Boston Waterfront Hotel is a comfortable hotel that caters to business travelers, many of whom are in the neighborhood to attend conventions at the Seaport World Trade Center and the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center. The area's thriving bar and restaurant scene tends to be a hit with visitors, as does its views of the crystal-blue waterfront and constantly evolving development in the neighborhood.

YOU SHOULD KNOW There is always construction going on in the neighborhood, so check ahead if that's a major deterrent.
