Element Boston Seaport District Marriott

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.

I have never been denied a late checkout with gold and platinum status in my life and travel quite extensively and was shocked at the unfriendly associate when asked. I was very disappointed and shocked. Everything else was good. Wouldn’t stay here again

Not a friendly place at all. The lamest breakfast ever. Yoghurt, and a bagel. Boiled prepackaged eggs were old. Glass walls to the small pool should be somewhat covered so not everyone passing stares. Sure it’s clean but boring, cold and unwelcoming.

I stayed here with my friends for a bday. The only downside is that there were several dogs in the breakfast area and that's a little unsanitary to me. I also want to point out that the supervisor Kisha was the reason our stay was as good as it was.

I stayed here with my friends for a bday. The only downside is that there were several dogs in the breakfast area and that's a little unsanitary to me. I also want to point out that the supervisor Kisha was the reason our stay was as good as it was. She was SUPER SUPER SUPER helpful with anything we needed and she made us feel so welcome from the time we checked in until the end of our stay. Unfortunately she was out the day we were leaving but I still asked for her so we could say goodbye. If you ever stay here at this property I hope you are lucky enough to meet her. She was super awesome! Read less

It's 0.5-0.7 miles either way to get to restaurants/shops etc and even further to the heart of Boston/Historic district--it is walkable, but it is a committment. We knew this but it should be stated.

This hotel is situated between the Seaport district and South Boston. It's 0.5-0.7 miles either way to get to restaurants/shops etc and even further to the heart of Boston/Historic district--it is walkable, but it is a committment. We knew this but it should be stated. The hotel is bright and clean, and staff is very friendly and helpful, and the price certainly is right. There were two issue, one minor: there are no drawers--there is open shelving; there are shelves in the closets, so underwear, etc can be tucked in there. The one significant issue is that the sound really travels between rooms. We could hear our hallmates talking on their phones, playing video games, and washing dishes. We are night owls so usually this didn't disrupt our sleep but it should be mentioned. Overall a good stay and we would consider staying there again. Read less

Visited recently for 1 night. Hotel is in a nice quiet location. Not a lot of activities within walking distance. Check in was quick, easy. Staff was super nice! Room was clean with up to date furnishings. TV with good quality picture. Breakfast was continental, pretty basic offerings.
