When it opened along Boston’s Seaport skyline in 2015, the Envoy became the first upscale hotel in the city’s hip Fort Point area. With $70 million in new construction, the hotel has a look that’s upscale and modern, from the ground-floor lobby (with the Outlook Kitchen+Bar) up to the 130 spacious guest rooms and the popular rooftop bar and lounge. Bedrooms are handsomely dressed in gray, gold and claret shades, with quirky design features like the map-detail glass etchings on the walls, TV stands made from bike frames and wood-effect tiles in the modern bathrooms. All have King or Queen beds, floor-to-ceiling windows, desks and ottomans. While the ground-floor restaurant is still under construction, guests can graze on small plates at the rooftop Lookout Bar, or take advantage of the Seaport’s raft of great restaurants — ask the concierge to score a table at a hot spot like Menton or Row 34. Be sure to end the night with a cocktail or local craft beer back at Lookout, where the huge wraparound terrace has dead-on views of the waterfront and Boston skyline.
In the Area
Grab a fresh lobster roll at the family-owned James Hook & Co., and stroll over the Congress Street Bridge to the Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum or the Children’s Museum in Fort Point. Once industrial, this renovated neighborhood now houses artists’ studios and the latest enterprises of the city’s celeb chefs, from Barbara Lynch’s cocktail bar, Drink, to Ming Tsai’s Asian-fusion restaurant, Blue Dragon. Or head north from the hotel to the New England Aquarium, Faneuil Hall Marketplace or the winding brick lanes of the Italian North End.
How to Get There
Very nice room. Modern and excellent fit and finish. The hotel is pet friendly and conveniently located for a quick trip to the airport, The location is in the water in a redeveloping area with lots of green space, The staff was friendly and helpful.
We recently spent two weeks traveling through the New England states with Boston being our last stop, The modern vibe of the hotel was a perfect counter point to all the Inns we had stayed in. Though the room is small is it outfitted perfectly. Great desk, chair and bed. Overall it was a great end to a wonderful vacation. I highly recommend the hotel the very friendly staff. Do yourself a favor and eat in the hotel restaurant. It had some of the best food we had on the entire trip
A updated version of a good business hotel. The Envoy has a semi minimalistic decor with the comfort one wants. The bed face out towards the large floor to ceiling window affording a great view of the city or harbor day or night. The hotel also has a wonderful roof top bar which is a very popular spot. Long waiting lines are common but hotel guest have immediate access. The Envoy has a great location which also lends itself to walks along the harbor and stops for morning coffee and muffins.
