Standing right on the water in Boston's business district, The Seaport Hotel is a modern, affordable three-and-a-half pearl property
that is a favorite among business travelers for good reason. The hotel's no-tipping policy, eco-friendly efforts, and a floor of hypoallergenic PURE rooms differentiates the
hotel from its comparably-priced competition—like the Westin Boston Waterfront. With big harbor-facing rooms, top-notch
amenities (including a stellar gym), and generally lower rates than the nearby Boston Renaissance Hotel,
the Seaport offers an understated luxury that’s hard to beat.
big business hotel with boutique feel
Despite 426 rooms and a wide, bustling lobby, the Seaport
Hotel seems to give off the air of a small boutique property. Maybe it’s the toy
chest for kids to rummage through in the lobby, cozy fireplace, or the
piano tucked away in a corner that give this place its surprising charm. It
likely also has to do with 2015 renovations that added oomph to an already
contemporary design: soft cream hues
complement dark wooden furniture and gold lighting throughout the space, with bold
and bright artwork in the halls and rooms keeping the decor from straying into
The hotel is just across the harbor from Logan International Airport, and next to the Boston Convention Center. As such, the place tends to attract a large
and diverse group of professionals, who might congregate at the expansive TAMO
Bistro and Bar, or make use of the free Wi-Fi at one of the numerous lounge
seats. A few unique features help this property stand out from other business
hotels in the city, including a no-tipping policy, strong eco-friendly focus,
and a floor of hypoallergenic rooms, aptly called PURE.
Close to airport and
Boston Convention center, on the waterfront, ideal for business travelers
The Seaport Hotel is located at Seaport Place, right in the
heart of Boston’s waterfront district. It’s an up-and-coming business district
that is home to a number of offices, residential condos, as well as bars and restaurants,
many of which are within walking distance. Seafood is the standard fare, though
the North End is a 10-minute taxi drive away and offers a range between fancy
Italian dishes and cheap pizza to fit most budgets. The rapid development in the area means that there is perpetual construction happening here; fortunately this does
little to mar the pretty sights of the pier.
Close to the airport, a five to 10-minute walk to the Boston
Convention Center, and 30 seconds from the World Trade Center T-Station, the
Seaport Hotel is ideal for business travelers. While there aren’t a lot of
tourist attractions nearby, for those who don’t mind walking—the Institute of
Contemporary Art (ICA) and the Children’s Museum are within 5 to 10 minutes of the
hotel. Faneuil Hall, Boston Common, and Quincy Market are only a few stops away
on the T.

designed, many with lovely harbor views
The rooms here are large and cheery, and most on the upper
levels have a lovely view of the harbor. An impeccable standard of cleanliness
is immediately noticeable, but it’s the thoughtful design touches that go a
long way, like master switches at the doors, built-in reading lamps, and charging
stations at bedside tables. Soft terry bathrobes, marble bathrooms with Gilchrist
and Soames toiletries, crisp bed sheets, and almost-silent AC units add to the
Rooms come furnished with modern amenities, including flat-screen
HDTVs, Keurig coffeemakers, mini-fridges, and BOSE speakers—but no minibars and overall the furniture and bedspreads are a bit dated and dull. PURE
rooms are a bit pricier but are certified 99.6 percent allergen-free, and otherwise
identical to the standard guest rooms. There are also a number of suites varying in both
size and selection of amenities (some have heated floors in the bathrooms), though
all share stunning views of the city and waterfront.
gym with spa services, modern business center, and a casual restaurant and bar
The highlight of this hotel is undoubtedly its state-of-the-art
WAVE fitness center, whose value is perhaps indicated by the locals who
frequent it along with hotel guests. This also means that the popular gym,
while large, can get crowded, especially during early morning or early evening
peak hours. Guests can choose from bike
rentals, group fitness classes, every cardio and weight machine imaginable, and multiple
kinds of free weights. The heated lap
pool is just next door and, like the gym, has floor-to-ceiling windows that
keep it sunny and bright all day long. Added perks include a steam room and spa
For breakfast, diners can choose from a buffet-style meal or
order off the varied breakfast menu at Aura Restaurant for a fee. TAMO Bar across the
hall is a bit more casual and serves an American lunch and dinner, and has an interesting
cocktail list. Even simpler, the Seaport Cafe sells grab-and-go baked goods and
sandwiches, along with Starbucks coffee.
The business center is modern and well-equipped with a copy
machine and color printers, as well as a conference room for 8. Guests can print from their rooms and pick up
at the center, or choose to have printouts delivered to their rooms.
