YOTEL Boston

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, guest rooms 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’.

Crisp, clean & modern. Booking was easy. Tried to use the app..I can see why it only gets 1 star...I just used the kiosk for self check in super easy. The rooms are small but offer everything I needed. Like cruise ship meets IKEA. It was a nice stay.

I highly recommend the Yotel for business travel. It is convenient to many areas in the Seaport area and easy to get to and from other locations around Boston. Please note rooms are small, but comfortable and quiet.

Julia at Yotel was a pleasure to work with. We had family members looking for all types of room configurations and she spoke with them on the phone and made sure everyone was taken care of. It's a fun spot right in the heart of Fort Point and everyone had a great time.
Image of the Tripadvisor rating A ripoff. Paid over $600 for a room that is smaller than my closet at home. Absurd and unbelievable!!

This hotel room was so small I could not open my suitcase to take things out unless I had it on my bed. There is no closet space and the bathroom is basically a few feet away from the bed. I cannot believe they charged over $600 for one night. It's a complete ripoff... absolutely absurd and unnecessary. I made the reservation at this hotel… Read more

I cannot believe they charged over $600 for one night. It's a complete ripoff... absolutely absurd and unnecessary. I made the reservation at this hotel because it looked cool. Huge mistake! Coolness not worth the uncomfortably small room. It's so small it's even hard to move around the room. Read less

This place was cheaper than anything else I could find in the neighborhood. Its got a funky aesthetic and the rooms are very compact. They were struggling with tech issues on my trip, like the self service kiosks didn't work and the WIFI was down for a couple days. The staff was very friendly and helpful though. There were plenty of amenities I didn't take advantage of, but overall felt like I got what I paid for. Read less
