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
We decided to stay at this hotel because of the rooftop igloos that they have their. If you stay there, you are able to go up 1st at 4 PM and I suggest that you get there at 4:00 p.m. The igloos immediately get filled up and they are 10 people per tent. The hotel itself is very nice. The rooms are big and the service is great. The hotel is conveniently located in the Seaport district and I would highly recommend it.
Stayed here for the night. We had a holiday party right next door so the location of the Envoy was perfect. Friendly greeting by the staff. Staff was accommodating we had a lot of luggage for the evening Love the decor of this hotel. Done with a lot of style Also love the lily coffee/espresso machine
I stay at the Envoy almost once a month, so I've made at least 10 if not 20 stays over the past couple of years, and there are reasons I keep coming back. The decor and design is top notch, the service friendly, the food better than most, and they consistently treat their Marriott Platinum members well. I also appreciate the location in Seaport, close to both top dining options and the downtown financial district. I have occasionally had issues getting charged for mini-bar items I did not consume (sometimes they don't stock the mini bar before check in then try and charge for all the missing items) and I very regularly have issues where my folio/points are not posted after check out, but these are manageable, irregular inconveniences. Overall, I definitely recommend the Envoy to anyone traveling to Boston and looking for a quality stay.
Would never stay again. The restaurant/bar is laughable. Bartenders are rude not knowledgeable of what beers they have. Inattentive. The hotel rooms we had two different ones and they are not clean. Kinda dingy and musty smell avoid it. We would not come back we stayed two years ago and rooms were nice this time not so much very disappointed.
Just came back from a nice stay at the Envoy. They had the rooftop bar open with small igloos and is was nice and warm and quite fun. The hotel is great with location in Seaport and overall very nice hotel, with great bar.
