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
My wife stayed at this hotel for 3 nights last week and were very favorably impressed by the excellent service and attentiveness of every hotel employee we came in contact with. This really enhanced our visit and we strongly recommend this hotel for other travelers to Boston.
Very nice hotel well situated in the Seaport area with short access to Boston downtown. Rooms are very nice and modern. I liked very much the setup and the exceptional view direction financial district. Definitely a choice I will consider again on one of my next trips to Boston.
Our experience this past weekend at The Envoy Hotel was incredible. The hotel itself is gorgeous and new. Every detail has been well thought-out. We stayed for two nights and ended up at the rooftop bar twice. Tori is a phenomenal bartender and made our experience a wonderful one. Our server the second night (whose name I can't remember; I'm so sorry!) when we chose to sit on one of the many plus couches was lovely and helped us make a reservation at the downstairs restaurant when we were having trouble making them through the app. As we chatted with her, we offhandedly mentioned that we were there celebrating our anniversary, and when we showed up for our dinner reservation, our server arrived with a bottle of prosecco on the house! We were flabbergasted. What a lovely gesture! And that wasn't all -- at the end, they brought us an amazing dessert, complete with "happy anniversary" written in chocolate. Whaaaat?! Loved this so much. The food and drinks were all incredible (if you're staying on the weekend, do yourself a favor and get the lobster eggs Benedict...divine). They accommodated our requests for early checkin and late checkout with no issue, and when we called to ask to borrow a bottle opener, it was delivered to our room within literally two minutes. The service, the amenities, all of it, really can't be beat. We'll definitely be back!
We were here to celebrate a 60th birthday - stayed the week M-F. This hotel's location was perfect for what we love to do best in big cities we visit - walk the city. The hotel design and environment was modern and comfortable - our views from our room were spectacular. The building was very quiet, and we felt secure and safe. Service at breakfast was a little slow and could have been more attentive - staff seemed more interested in setting up the patio than the needs of guests. Rooftop lounge was great, even in the cool weather as there were heating units in just the right spots. Food and drink here was good, however there are countless other options within easy walking distance for your appetite.
I travel extensively and have had my share of great experiences, but I have to say the staff of The Envoy is absolutely fantastic and have surpassed all my expectations. They’re attentive, knowledgeable and extremely professional.
I hosted a group of 20 customers and they all agreed the service is spectacular. Any and all requests are carried out immediately and with a smile.
The perfect location and beautiful views don’t hurt one bit either. Highly recommended
