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.

Amenities

  • Swimming Pool
  • Safety Deposit Box
  • Fitness Centre/Gym
  • Laundry Service
  • Internet Access
  • Bicycle Rental

We loved our stay here ! Room was great, beds comfortable, full size fridge , filtered water in sink, awesome Shower. Breakfast was awesome Over the weekend …. Much more limited on weekdays. But it’s free and we always appreciate that ! Staying in Seaport was great because you are just far enough away from the hustle and bustle that you get a quiet break. But it’s not too far for a quick Uber ride back to the sites. You can walk to Seaport Blvd for restaurants and shopping in 10 min. Thanks for an amazing stay ! Read less

Beautiful and very Clean, room was very nice and cleaned daily. Amenities are excellent, my only issue was no parking included with the stay. There is street parking and a parking lot if you can find a space. But just leaving the vehicle overnight in the car park was $50.00, which can get expensive for a week. Next trip I will look for a place… Read more

Next trip I will look for a place that offers a car park or discounted parking. Read less

I was wow by the cleaningless (room everyday) in all areas, great kitchette, great location, modern, ecologically correct, and best of all, great service... the young night front desk clerk, Nani Christmas, was a true representative of what customer service is all about, and always with a smile on her face.

We stayed at the Element this week while visiting Boston. It is in a great location with a ton of parking including a parking lot at a reasonable price. The staff was extremely attentive and friendly, the room and the hotel overall were very clean and very well run under the pandemic conditions. We stayed in the largest room which was fully equipped with appliances including a full fridge. The seaport district is a great place in general for great restaurants and entertainment and still close enough to get into th city. I would definitely recommend and stay here again. Read less

First, we stayed here because it was a pet-friendly hotel. It was just luck that it also was well-reviewed. It's one of the few hotels we found that allows for you to leave your pet in the room, unattended. We have a boxer-mix and he enjoyed the stay also, just lounging in the room, living his best life.

First, we stayed here because it was a pet-friendly hotel. It was just luck that it also was well-reviewed. It's one of the few hotels we found that allows for you to leave your pet in the room, unattended. We have a boxer-mix and he enjoyed the stay also, just lounging in the room, living his best life. The hotel itself is super clean, staff was friendly and responsive to our needs, especially Camilla (sp?). I called several times with questions and it always seemed to be her that answered the phone. She was helpful and reassuring that the hotel would meet our needs. No real drawbacks to the hotel, at all. Biggest pet peeve was the placement of the toliet paper in the bathroom (it was easy to knock onto the floor) and then the main switch for lights in the room. We like to leave the bathroom light on at night and it was impossible to do that with the main switch or, at least, we couldn't find a way. I also felt comfortable with their COVID-19 protocols. Lastly, plenty of parking for guests. Overall, highly recommend. Read less
