Apartment-Like Hotel Rooms in the Heart of Boston
If you’re thinking of visiting Massachusetts, or are in the mood for a staycation, Element Hotel Boston may be your place. While there are many alluring neighborhoods to visit around the city, this hotel is located in the ideal spot to give you access to an array of Boston activities and sites to see.
Checking into the Element Hotel Boston
Upon checking in, you’ll notice the hotel is designed to give guests the ease of coming and going. Located in the Seaport District of Boston, it’s perfectly situated within steps of two popular neighborhoods; Southie and the Seaport Area. Here you’ll find boat rides, day excursions, restaurants, buzzing bars, and a multitude of things to do.
I stayed in the King studio suite, with street views. All rooms replicate studio apartments as opposed to hotel rooms, and this becomes apparent once you step inside! The rooms come with everything you may need for a short or long haul stay; kitchen area, pantry area, stovetop, fridge, microwave, and utensils/supplies. There’s also additional seating areas and work spaces if you’re feeling a little productive during your stay.
Amenities at the Hotel
Besides its tempting location in the heart of the Seaport District, there’s also an indoor salt-water pool to beat the humid days of Boston summers. There’s an onsite gym available with a large selection of equipment for guests.
There’s also bicycle rentals available in the lobby, which is a must-do if it’s your first time visiting Boston! As mentioned, there’s so much to see in this area that you’ll want to rent a bike just for the convenience and ease of getting around!
Dining at the Element Hotel Boston
The hotel also offers complimentary breakfast options for guests each morning downstairs. This included a delicious spread of fresh, home cooked hot and cold options for your choosing. This is the ideal choice if you’re looking to grab and go, or relax in the outdoor, garden area.
While Element doesn’t offer a hotel bar/restaurant area directly in the lobby, it is attached to D’s Keys Piano Bar- an interactive, dueling piano show! Grab some snacks, drinks, and sing the night away to your choice of songs. (This is a must-visit!) It’s also directly across from the Lawn on D- an outdoor space featuring giant swings, games, and live music fun. Element’s neighboring hotel, Aloft, is home to Alma Gaucha- a traditional, Brazilian steakhouse, and foodie option if you’re in the mood to stay local.
