Note on hotel directions: The Seaport/South Boston area has been changing over the last few years, with new construction, altered traffic and parking patterns, and some streets designated for commercial vehicles only. We'd appreciate any feedback on parking and directions as this is a tricky area, and, well, it's Boston.
The Westin Boston Waterfront, home of Boskone, is the tall building at the corner of D and Summer Streets that's adjacent to the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center. Setting up your GPS? Your destination is 425 Summer St., Boston, MA 02210
There are now large signs for the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center. Follow those signs if you are unclear about how to drive to the Westin, which is next door.
