Element Boston Seaport District

Boston, USA

The hotel

A thoroughly modern concept in Boston hotels, Element Boston Seaport states it’s been ‘built green from the ground up’. Its eco-friendly principles don’t get in the way of style or luxuries though. Both come in abundance. The public and private spaces are slick and urban, with all the requisite clean lines, blocky furniture, and muted natural colours you’d expect from a hotel that only opened its doors in 2016. This contemporary styling’s evident in the oversized guestrooms with their full kitchens; the cosy reading nooks; the indoor pool space; and the amenities laid on, including free bicycles for exploring your Seaport surrounds, complimentary WiFi, and a ‘Rise, Restore, Relax’ dining mantra, which translates into a 24-hour gourmet pantry, complimentary breakfasts, and midweek receptions with free drinks and hors d’oeuvres.

Rates in town were astronomical, so I booked here because it was reasonable. Clean, bright, inviting-if-austere - the typical Element design/decor.

It's steps from the Aloft, which had a more lively bar, but I have no complaints at all about this Element. I would recommend this property. I'm Bonvoy Titanium with Ambassador. Read less

Free breakfast was adequate,although could do with a bigger toaster,as one 2 slice toaster doesn't cut the mustard for people wanting toasted bagels etc. There is a free 24 hour coffee machine in the lobby which is a nice touch. If you don't mind walking you can walk to most places from here like we did.Hotel is only 1.5 miles from airport. We were really pleased with this hotel and would definately recommend to anyone.

I stayed here June 16-20th for a conference. The location is perfect for the convention center, which is across the street. It is also close to airport and boat harbor. There are plenty of places to eat and see within walking distance. There is a parking lot next to hotel where you receive a scan code for mobile device to easily go in and out of lot as well as happy hour ap for 2 free drinks daily during the week. The chef at breakfast does a great job with cooked on the spot dishes and all other continental fare is available and all very good and fresh. Espresso machine 24/7 was a bonus. Bikes available to rent, didnt use pool but it looked fine and there is a courtyard with seating and grill if someone wanted. Rooms are large with full sized fridge and stovetop, couch and desk. Did not want for a thing at this wonderful refuge from long conference days and the rain shower head was lovely. Must go to Ds Keys dueling piano bar located on first floor, other side of building, so fun. Read less

Stayed one night waiting on cruise the next day so close by the port. Hotel is designed for the millennials, sleek lobby, rooms with fake wood and lots of white and rain shower head. As a senior I saved on this property through Marriott
