Sat majestically in the heart of Boston’s buzzing Seaport District, Yotel Seaport is a staple destination to visit in the area. The building’s tall structure of windows sits proudly along the boulevard, surrounded by an array of infamous restaurants, bars, and unique venues.
While Boston is known for its historic charm, there’s certainly nothing historic about this property. Instead, the interior design feels extremely modern, with its large windows and open concept filling the space with light and a welcoming environment.
Checking into the Hotel
Yotel’s clean vision inspires feelings of being in a sophisticated airport lounge, with quirky seating and plush couches scattered throughout the lobby space. Grab a drink at the bar while you wait for check-in.
Along with the minimalistic design comes pops of color in deep purples and yellows. Large plants provide a welcoming, mellow feel. Don’t miss the resident robot whizzing through the halls!
Rooms at Yotel
Following suite with the airline-style concept, rooms are compact and created for efficiency. Double beds begin in sofa-like positions, with a button to lay-flat at ease. Flat screen TV’s are fitted with adjustable mood lighting to change at your convenience.
While most hotels distinctly separate their bathroom spaces, Yotel hotel’s are known to flow together while still feeling unconnected. For more capacity, double rooms may also come with an extra bunk-bed space above the main bedding area.
Dining at the Hotel
Perched on the top floor of Yotel Boston sits Deck 12. A sprawling rooftop space with unbeatable views of the Seaport District. Being an indoor/outdoor concept, Deck 12 makes for the perfect summer spot or cozy indoor hideaway.
