As loyal Marriott members, we always like to give Marriott a try whenever we travel. The location of this Marriott is as good as it gets. It is located right on the harbor and within walking distance to top attractions such as the North End, New England Aquarium, Faneuil Hall, and countless restaurants and bars. The lobby is welcoming and modern, the breakfast buffet was great, the rooms are clean, and the gym and pool facilities are easily accessible and well maintained. The valet attendants are fantastic and extremely knowledgeable and prompt. The reason I only gave it three stars is because I was not impressed with our rooms at all. We had a 2 queen connected to a king. The mattresses are extremely old and uncomfortable. The feather pillows were flat, and the hotel was out of foam pillows. For a hotel with this high of occupancy it would be worth it to upgrade the mattresses and have enough pillows for guest requests. The bathrooms are very tight, and our bathroom didn’t have a hook to hang a towel on. Lastly, and most unfortunate, our harbor “view” was of scaffolding, which we were not informed of when we made the reservation or checked in.

Hotel is in a great location. Our stay was terrible. I will never stay at this hotel again. First, they are doing construction so don’t plan on sleeping past 8am. Second, the elevators are in need of servicing. The friction from the elevators make a terrible screeching noise every 2-3 minutes that kept us awake all night. Lastly, our credit card was stolen by our bartender. Our check was brought back to us; and we weren’t in a hurry so we didn’t promptly fill it out. By the time we did, we didn’t realize the card was not in the folder. It wasn’t until the next morning that we realized the card was missing. My spouse went to the bar to ask if anyone found one and the male bartender was incredibly rude and immediately answered they didn’t have it without asking for our name or even looking for it. We then called security and reported our concerns and we’re not taken seriously there either. We spent good money and tipped well only to be stolen from. Today, someone in Boston attempted to charge our card $400 for some groceries. I will never stay here and the Marriott should really look into the caliber of employees they have working behind the bar, especially the male working behind the bar 1/5 evening and 1/6 afternoon, as well as the Hispanic man serving the tables 1/5 evening.
