Aloft Boston Seaport District

Boston, USA

Virgin rating

The hotel

Bang on trend, this hotel’s industrial-meets-chic styling is completely in keeping with its neighbourhood, the fast-flourishing Seaport district. Its spot in this trendy borough’s pretty enviable too, just across the road from its coolest hangout space, Lawn on D, which hosts food trucks, live events, and free yard games and WiFi. Inside the hotel there's plenty to offer too, a suitably contemporary indoor pool space,  live entertainment at D's Keys Dueling Piano Bar or W XYZ Bar, and 24-hour dining and fitness - ideal whatever time you return from exploring Boston’s most famous attractions. From the Freedom Trail to the shopping around Faneuil Hall, the city’s biggest draws are all within a couple of miles.

The hotel is nice, but the staff were excellent, friendly and attentive. We were especially impressed by Emanuele who was so helpful at check-in and gave us some good recommendations while we were in town. He was like our personal concierge!

They had very clean and spacious rooms. House keeping came in the next morning and made the beds are refreshed the towels. There’s breakfast that you can purchase but I wish there was free continental breakfast. The vallet was very helpful and friendly. Yacouty was awesome!

Great staff with great amenities! Room was very clean. Nelly, at the front desk, helped us so much!! We are new to the area and she took the time to walk us through the train system and wrote down detailed directions for us which helped so much!!

Experience overall was great, bar had a good atmosphere, everything was comfortable. Jody at the front desk really stood out. She was accommodating and extremely friendly. If every hotel had a Jody, they’d be in a good place. 4 stars without Jody, 5 stars with Jody.
