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, 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’.

Paid over $200 for 1 night, not worth the price tag. Bathroom slide door was broken. When bed is fully flat, no space to walk around the bed And go to the bathroom. No one answered the phone when calling the valet.

From the moment we checked in to the moment we check out we’ve had nothing but an amazing experience. Staff was very friendly and made sure we understood all terms / conditions. They gave us our privacy as well while meeting our needs.

Great location, cool room- comfort, design & scenery were A plus! Perfect place for a getaway for ONE or two!! Loved this room- I would certainly book again and have already spread the word! I wish I would have boomed this room for my entire stay in Boston!

The amenities advertised like a smart tv and robot room service were not at the Yotel Boston. I was definitely disappointed. The rooms were cool, the beds were not super comfortable, and the view was okay.

This is the 2nd YOTEL stay in a year. The stay here was equally enjoyable as in NYC. The room size is just right, clean and I found the bed comfortable. Tom at the front desk was extremely helpful. Will stay again!!
