YOTEL Boston

Boston, USA

The hotel

Fun and futuristic, Yotel has found its spiritual home in Boston’s Seaport neighbourhood – its tech-driven ‘Innovation District’ is the perfect setting for this tech-savvy hotel, with Boston’s famous sights just moments away thanks to the subway stop in its basement. Inspired by the digital age and styled with a tongue-in-cheek nod to first class travel, guestrooms are called ‘cabins’, you get free superfast WiFi throughout, and you even check in at airport-style self-service desks (although Yotel’s ‘Mission Control crew’ are always ready to help). Even the social spaces are first class themed – from the lobby’s Club Lounge with its casual dining and complimentary tea and coffee, to the rooftop’s Sky Lounge, with its views over Boston’s skyline and harbour, refreshing ‘Cabin Cooler’ cocktails, innovative light bites, and playlists designed by its ‘Sound Architect’.

It was a nice clean hotel. Close to many attractions and restaurants. The staff were very nice and personable. It is located on busy street but traffic noise was not a problem. Would use this hotel again for business or pleasure.

Good: Employees were friendly, check-in/out were fast and smooth. Room and beds were clean. Bad: Had to drive around the building several times to find a space to pull over for valet service. Room is extremely small. Hard to find spaces to put two suite cases.
Image of the Tripadvisor rating Cool place with lots of hidden fees watch out!

Read the fine print. I did not and was never informed of the $75 a day refundable fee being held. Never showed up anywhere but my bank statement. Yotel under faqs tells you about it it and the fact that it may take 15 days to get it returned
Image of the Tripadvisor rating Great location! Fun Hotel!

The Yotel is sleek and fun. Great location in the Seaport neighborhood of Boston. Walk or take the public transit all over Boston. The room looked very small at first, but it's just very well organized. The shower is refreshing with either a hand held spray or monsoon shower head!
