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’.

This was my third time staying at YOTEL, and my experience this time matched my prior ones. The rooms are small but comfortable, especially since we were out for the whole day and were only really at the hotel to sleep. For some reason the kiosk usually fails to make my keys on check-in, but the folks at the front desk have always been friendly… Read more

The rooms are small, but quite nice. You have everything you need to be comfortable. The layout is like a 1st class flight. Compact, but not inconvenient. However, with 2 people, I think it be too cramped.

Very clean and comfortable! Excellent staff. Just know there is a curtain in front of the bathroom -- not a door. Parking is expensive but they allow in/out during stay. Avocado toast is very good. Great location!

My name is Matthew Thomas and I stayed at the Yotel Boston from 3/5 - 3/7. I was very excited to stay at the Yotel while I had my conference at the Seaport. The rooms looked fun, the price was much more affordable than surrounding hotels, and the location was fantastic. I had booked a room with a queen and a twin for myself and two colleagues, but when I checked in I was given a room with only a queen. I went back downstairs to get it fixed, but I was repeatedly told there was nothing they could do because the 3-bed rooms were sold out. My confirmation said I booked the correct room. I stressed to them that I cannot stay in the room with one queen since there is no room for a third person. I was really upset that I was continually told that there was nothing they could do when I had spent $400 already. Eventually, a manager booked us in a handicapped room, so there was enough floor space for me to sleep on.  I tried to not let this bring down the weekend, so the three of us got settled and went to dinner. When we got in the elevator the doors closed, and the elevator suddenly shook and dropped a foot! This happened a few times, and then it lowered us to the first floor but would not let us out. I hit the emergency button, and the call went to voicemail, and the voice mailbox was full. I called the front desk on my phone, and after thirty minutes they opened the doors and we got out without anyone asking "are you okay" or "I'm sorry." I'm really disappointed with my stay at the Yotel. I wanted to have a great weekend at my conference with my friends, and we had much more stress than we needed. Read less
