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’.

The electric bed makes a really comfy sofa, there is enough room for one person in the cabin, but it would drive me potty staying a week. Other Yotels had a pull out desk Boston only has a tray, that was my biggest gripe. I liked all the small cubby holes to put things in, it made me more tidy than normal. Bathroom was fine. A small issue, I found… Read more
The electric bed makes a really comfy sofa, there is enough room for one person in the cabin, but it would drive me potty staying a week. Other Yotels had a pull out desk Boston only has a tray, that was my biggest gripe. I liked all the small cubby holes to put things in, it made me more tidy than normal. Bathroom was fine. A small issue, I found the mood lighting was not bright enough at times. The rest of the hotels was very nice, The 'no bags' policy in the roof top bar was irritating, great breakfasts. Read less

Sky bar was fantastic with amazing views of city. Rooms are small but modern and super clean. Staff friendly. Location was awesome. Drinks are expensive but it’s Boston. Don’t miss the sky bar whatever you do. Michael and Kareem were very helpful

In good section of downtown Boston. Rooms are small and overpriced. Room was pre-paid through work...Hotel charged my account as well and had to ask for my account to be credited. Not geared for business traveler. Limited amenities in the room. Better more comfortable hotels to stay at than this one. Not impressed!

Horrible space. Your check out team needs better training As I left my blue to green tag outside my door for 2 days and was supposed to be credited 10 USD. Instead of accepting my version of the story your front desk asks “are you sure? Because if they change your linens you don’t get the credit” My reply was simple. First, I don’t need a… Read more
Horrible space. Your check out team needs better training As I left my blue to green tag outside my door for 2 days and was supposed to be credited 10 USD. Instead of accepting my version of the story your front desk asks “are you sure? Because if they change your linens you don’t get the credit” My reply was simple. First, I don’t need a rebuttal from you I’m a grown man, i know what I did Otherwise I wouldn’t be asking about my 10 dollar credit. No have a good day Nothing Just a sarcastic undermining tone Your security guard on May 10 at night rooftop was very rude Just because I smoked a vape He comes up to me in front of my lady “if I catch you again, you’re going to leave” meanwhile he’s watching golden state play versus Houston like he doesn’t have a job to do But over compensates when he actually did No good night No good evening Just ugly angry energy Totally uncalled for Unprofessional and his tone sucked The service industry is based on servicing customers For this price point ill go elsewhere.

A good cozy hotel although there were plenty of signs "no smoking" but the hallway would smell weed. If you are driving then park your car for $5/night 2 blocks away so you wont have to pay $50/night for the same parking spot. Properly located and good initial price which is then added from multiple taxes applied at check-out. They will also… Read more

Properly located and good initial price which is then added from multiple taxes applied at check-out. They will also charge extra for early check-in so be mindful of the time. Read less
