The Envoy Hotel is a unique addition to Boston's Innovation District and Seaport neighborhood. Overflowing with personality and plenty of modern touches, it's an easy-going and stylish environment that attracts both visitors and locals with its innovative design. A great location overlooking the Fort Point Channel provides beautiful views of Downtown Boston.
Beautifully designed with stylish furnishings and pops of color, rooms at the Envoy are refreshing and fun. A sleek white desk provides room to get work done, while in-room TVs double as digital concierges, and are equipped with Enseo technology. If you're willing to spring for the room upgrade, try to nab one with the "floating" beds that face floor-to-ceiling windows over the harbor.
A signature element of the Envoy is their curated glass map doors framing the bathroom, which feature a collage of area maps. They're attractive and bright, and feature modern amenities like rainfall showerheads.
YOU SHOULD KNOW Some guests say the bathrooms are not ideal if you're looking for the utmost privacy.
The Envoy's lobby is beautiful and modern, with lots of floor-to-ceiling windows, plush blue couches, and bright yellow pillows. There's plenty of business workstations, and even a virtual pool table.
The 24-hour fitness center has treadmills, free weights, cable machines, ellipticals, and yoga equipment. The Envoy boasts its own Wellness Concierge, too.
YOU SHOULD KNOW Peloton bikes have been recently added to the Fitness Center.
Outlook Kitchen and Bar serves delicious American cuisine focused on seasonal, locally-produced ingredients.
Outlook Kitchen and Bar serves up craft cocktails and microbrews, including one that's made specifically for them. The Lookout Rooftop and Bar becomes quite the hotspot with area professionals during the warmer weather, who love to gather for cocktails overlooking the Seaport. In the colder months, the rooftop is transformed into to a winter wonderland with large, heated igloos, where you can curl up inside and sip seasonal cocktails.
YOU SHOULD KNOW The Igloos are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Also, you can't order food on the rooftop.
The Silver Line is 1/2 a block away from the Envoy, but if you want to get to the subway, you'll have to connect at South Station, which is just a 10 minute walk. The hotel is easy to reach on foot from the Financial District and Downtown Crossing, but a bit far if you're looking to head to Copley Square and Newbury Street.
Ocean Prime (6-minute walk) is a high-end steakhouse that's close by, while Babbo Pizzeria (5-minute walk) serves up delicious Italian. The Barking Crab (1-minute walk) is a casual seafood joint overlooking the Fort Point Channel.
Grab a beer and a soft pretzel at Harpoon Brewery and Beer Hall (6-minute drive, 19-minute walk), or head over to the Lawn on D (8-minute drive, 23-minute walk), a fun outdoor entertainment area with plenty of lawn games, food trucks, and beer.
