Hotels & Food

All of Arisia's functions and parties will be at the Westin Boston Waterfront (425 Summer Street, Boston, MA 02210)

We have an Active block — noisier, near parties, a Quiet block — rooms further away from parties, and a Staff block, all of which include both King and Double rooms. While we will have some floors that are all specifically active rooms, every hotel floor, including those that are mostly quiet or mostly staff, has suites that might contain parties.

Hotel Reservations

Hotel reservations are now open. See our Hotel Reservations page for detailed information about reservations, including changes and cancellations, at the Westin Boston Waterfront and the overflow hotel, The Aloft Seaport Boston.

Coat Check

Arisia has a free volunteer-run Coat Check at the Westin, located on the Concourse level (1W) near the Commonwealth Ballroom by the D Street entrances.

Coat Check will not be able to take oversized bags (luggage) this year due to space constraints. If you need to check large bags, please ask the Westin staff about using their bag check service (and please remember to tip the staff who assist you).

Coat Check Hours:

Day Hours
Friday 3:00 PM - 1:00 AM
Saturday & Sunday 8:00 AM - 1:00 AM
Monday 8:00 AM - 2:00 PM
