If you want a beautiful wedding in Boston in a great location, this venue is for you. We had a lot of guests traveling from out of town and they all enjoyed the location so much. They were able to explore nearby restaurants and other things, such as Lawn on D. It is also so close to the airport. Besides the location, the service at the Renaissance is top notch. Jennifer F. is amazing and was so great to work with. She is so accommodating and calm. I probably sent her an email a day leading up the wedding. She was able to provide everything we wanted! I cried when I saw how beautiful the ballroom looked for the wedding, and the food was some of the best I have ever had. The appetizers were so unique and unlike any other venue. If you like seafood, definitely go with the Renaissance. The suites and guest rooms are also so spacious. I cannot recommend this hotel enough for your venue. You can definitely trust the event staff to do an outstanding job!Sent on 09/04/2016

On September 12th, we held our wedding reception at the Renaissance Waterfront hotel. We had the fortune to work with two great coordinators at the hotel, Sarah Traub and Jennifer Fruscillo. Jennifer really went above and beyond with EVERYTHING for our wedding.Sent on 10/05/2015
In all honesty, we know that it is hard to walk into an event or project that is already rolling along and we were concerned that something would be overlooked. We had booked the hotel almost two years prior and as you can imagine, a lot of back and forth happened during that time period. Jennifer captured EVERYTHING and more. She has been extremely attentive to our communications and paid attention to the smallest detail. She is pleasant and professional with everything that she does. It is obvious that the role of being an events coordinator is tedious and overall hard work. It is obvious that Jennifer can steadily roll along without flinching. It is impressive.
The food was awesome, we had the beef w/lobster ravioli, chicken w/polenta and a vegetarian dish. All the food was served HOT and fresh. There were no complaints from the guests on the food, which is saying a lot for me! The venue was beautiful, we booked the ballroom with floor to ceiling windows (I believe it is called the Aegean ballroom). The hotel rooms were great and the service was above and beyond expectations. Would recommend this hotel for any event in the future.
