The Seaport Boston Hotel is a common choice for those who are participating in conferences or events at the convention center nearby. As part of the Seaport World Trade Center Boston complex, this four-star hotel is ideally located within walking distance of the main financial district, and it's just a few miles from Logan International Airport. Convenient transportation options include taxi, water taxi, and the Silver Line Seaport Station. Although there are other hotels situated closer to the tourist district, the Seaport Boston Hotel offers excellent service, convenience, and amenities at reasonable prices, making it a great overall option.
The Seaport Hotel and the adjacent World Trade Center Boston, which is connected to the hotel by a short bridge and therefore easily accessible to guests, are located on the waterfront at Commonwealth Pier in South Boston. Many rooms overlook either beautiful views of the Boston Seaport, or views over the city skyline. The hotel is renowned as a green, or environmentally friendly, hotel and was voted one of America's "Greenest Hotels" by Forbes Traveler. The hotel focuses on using green cleaning products and laundry systems, as well as recycling projects.
The amenities offered by the Seaport Boston Hotel are first-rate, as would be expected of a luxury four-star hotel where President Obama has previously stayed. Renovated in 2009, hotel rooms are elegantly and tastefully decorated, with sumptuous linens and the latest in entertainment technology; flat screen televisions, in-room computers, and Bose mp3 radio alarm clocks are all available. Room options include deluxe double, deluxe king, and harbor view king rooms, and guests will appreciate the option for pure rooms, which are certified hypoallergenic and cater toward guests with allergies or respiratory illnesses. Pillow-top beds and hypoallergenic pillows and linens make your room an oasis of comfort and calm after a day of busy sightseeing or business conferences, and free wireless Internet is the finishing touch.
For business travelers, the Boston Seaport offers a 24-hour complimentary business center that includes real-time flight booking and boarding pass printing, a color copier, computers, fax, and even a boardroom for meetings. For conferences and events, there are several meeting rooms and facilities available both at the hotel and, of course, at the World Trade Center Boston. The Seaport also boasts an excellent location for weddings, and the hotel staff's skill at hosting events ensures your big day will run smoothly.
For guests staying at the Seaport Boston Hotel that need some rest and relaxation after a long day of work or play, the hotel spa and fitness center offers state-of-the-art exercise equipment, a pool, spa, and steam room, and exercise, fitness, and nutrition classes. The hotel can also arrange access to a local golf course, activities for kids, and water sports that take advantage of the hotel's waterfront location. Guests can also ask the staff for more information on local walking tours and trails.
Guests highly recommend the outstanding food served at the in-house Aura Restaurant and Bar, and the Seaport Café and Tamo Bar also located in the hotel offer more dining options. The excellent buffet breakfast has also been well-reviewed. One interesting and perhaps welcome perk—tips are not accepted at the hotel, as a service charge is already included in your bill, so you don't have to agonize about how much to tip for the excellent service you are sure to receive.
