We arrived in our room, which had a remarkable view of downtown. Our room had two queen-size beds, and the Heavenly Bed lived up to its name. As soon as I laid down, I fell asleep for an hour. I have never slept that well at a hotel. Another surprise was the shower, which had two shower heads. Since I wasn't paying attention, I didn't expect to the extra "power" of H2O targeted at me. That was an experience.
The best thing about this resort is its location to wonderful restaurants and shopping. Aside from being connected to Copley Square and Prudential Center, you had a choice of two Legal Seafood restaurants. Personally, the Copley Place's location is MUCH better.
Newbury Street is just another 5-minute walk across Prudential Center. The Prudential center is connected to Copley Place and has more restaurants and stores. Newbury Street consists of a variety of stores, from your Gaps to Burberry. Also, there is a lovely park next to the Burberry store.
If you want your money's worth, definitely stay at this Westin. The staff is friendly and they address you by your name(s).

The deluxe room is positively luxurious. Westin makes a big deal about its bed and bedding, so much so, that you can purchase the stuff on the web if you feel that your bed just doesn’t measure up anymore after a night here. It’s the down feathers, I suppose, that make a difference. Chuck also favored the bath robes, and for $75.00, you can own one. We were always on upper floors, so the view from the oversize window (they actually open in this hotel) is nothing short of grand. Both times, we had panoramic views of downtown, but I do know that some rooms face the Charles River too. King size bed naturally, night tables, reading lights, desk, chairs with T1 or greater lines for internet. Love Seat or couch by one of the windows if you have a corner room; huge dresser which also holds TV, VCR (which you can rent) and what not. Some rooms have coffee makers. All amenities including iron, hair dryer, mini-bar, safe.
They have 24 hour room service, and we can vouch for that. One early morning (3 am to be precise), we were both wide awake and decided we were in the mood for mango sorbet. Yes, you guessed it: it was delivered promptly to the room and we loved every spoonful.
You can also enjoy the fitness center, and pool/sauna. There are 4 restaurants here, including a charming clam bar which doubles as a waiting area for the Fisheries Restaurant. If you feel like spending your money, you can visit Copley Place which is connected to the Westin by skybridge. The skybridge is also a great spot to take photos.
If you''re walking outside, the Mariott Copley Plaza is right next door. We stayed there as well.
On the second level of the Westin, are several shops and/or kiosks which sell incredibly beautiful and unusual merchandise, i.e. jewelry. We never took time to explore that floor fully, but walked across many times, as we would come in from one of the side entrances and take the escalator up. Even if you're not buying, it's eye candy.
As far as recommendations go, what more can you add to a hotel that's had the AAA Diamond Award for 14 consecutive years?
