Question about Microwaves and Fridges in Area Hotels

Post by Aurabolt »

Heya, ladies and gents.

A friend of mine is gonna be visiting Boston between January 27 and February 17. I did reccommend three of the hotels in the area to them: Sheraton, Westin and Marriott. They're gonna need as room with a mini fridge and hopefully a microwave since a young child and a pregnant woman is coming with them.

I live in Boston and unfortunately I've never stayed at any of the area hotels for AB (it's on my bucket list, no worries!). They won't be around for AB obviously but I figure I ask those who've stayed at these hotels. Does anyone know if the rooms in these hotels have a fridge (or Mini-Fridge) and/or a microwave and if not, if you can request them either from the front desk, when booking or when checking in?

I'm helping them plan and would like to get this figured out sooner than later. Thanks in advance to whoever is able to answer these questions ^_^

EDIT: Well, my friend is adjusting their plans. They will be here from January 30 to April 15 and they plan to atrtend AB2023 =)

Thanks for confirming that. I heard you can request a microwave for your room and I'm hoping someone can confirm that.

I edited my OP to mention this but my friend changed their plans. They will now be here from January 30 to April 15 and plans to attend AB2023! They have also settled on staying at the Sheraton. Should be fun =)

Hello,

It is possible to request a room with a mini fridge and/or microwave from the front desk, when booking, or when checking in at Sheraton, Westin, or Marriott hotels in Boston. However, it is best to double-check the availability of these amenities beforehand.

As someone mentioned, all of the Sheraton rooms have refrigerators. I believe that is also the case for the Marriott.

Microwaves are a $25/day charge.
