Fodor's Expert Review Aloft Boston Seaport

401-403 D Street, Boston, MA 02210 See on Map

Located in the vibrant and rapidly development Seaport District, Aloft is a tech-forward hotel with a lively, welcoming atmosphere. Conventioneers and families both enjoy the area's constantly growing entertainment scene, ranging from the Lawn on D to multiple waterfront dining options.

room

Guests can use the Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG) app to check in, get their room number and even unlock their door. Super techies will enjoy the ChatBotlr to request a service with a single text or the Voice Activated Hotel Room, which is controlled via an iPad that has an Aloft App. All rooms have ergonomic workstations and free coffee and water.

YOU SHOULD KNOW Keep in mind that proximity to the Lawn on D means things can get a bit noisy.

LOCATION

Getting Around

The Hotel is a short walk from the MBTA Silver Line's World Trade Center stop, but if you're looking to connect to the underground subway, you'll have to switch lines at South Station.

Restaurants

Head to Legal Harborside (5-minute drive) for classic New England fare, or Row 34 (5-minute drive) for an exceptional meal of oysters and other top-of-the-line seafood.

Bars

Head deeper into Southie for beers at Worden Hall (4-minute drive), or try MJ O'Connor's (5-minute walk), a classic pub at the nearby Westin Waterfront Hotel.

WHY WE LIKE IT

Pet owners, who are allows to bring dogs up to 40 lbs, will love Aloft's Arf program, which provides a dog bed, bowl, treats, and toys for your furry friend.
