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.

To Noni’s manager: give her a raise! Thank you so much, Noni! Read less

My wife and I planned a Christmas vacation in Boston and booked a room at the Element Boston Seaport. We liked the pictures of the hotel on a travel website. We were even more impressed with the reception we experienced starting at check-in. We appreciated the warmth of Noni C. especially after a long travel day! She went beyond the call of duty to make us feel welcome. The whole staff was quite pleasant throughout our stay including cleaning crew and happy hour hostess. Breakfast was a wow experience with well appointed buffet and a chef onsite to prepare delicious dishes. We haven't visited Boston in many years. The Element Boston Seaport is now among our top choices for our next visit. Read less

The Element is a great hotel. Good breakfast, great coffee machine in the lobby, good walking location in south Boston, small kitchen in the room, hardwood floors and friendly staff. I look forward to staying here when I’m in Boston.

Stayed 5 nights here for a conference across the street at the convention center. Was extremely convenient location, could be at the conference with a few minute walk, quick eats (Dunkin, Jimmy John's, convenience store) very close with plenty of higher end restaurants within 10-15 min walk. We had a great corner room with a nice view of downtown. Service was excellent, they helped me send a package back to my office. Breakfast was also very good, with a hot entree prepared to order each morning and plenty of selections from a buffet. Read less
