While it is a given that the Envoy Hotel in Boston is one of the hottest places to be when visiting the city, there are still some lesser-known things about our hotel that makes it even more special to guests, especially those who are coming into the hotel and city for the first time. Here are three things you didn’t know about the Envoy Hotel in Boston:
One: The Envoy Hotel is inspired by the city of Boston itself
The Envoy Hotel stands proudly in the city of Boston, at Innovation District, and everything about the hotel is reflective of the vibe and heritage of this magnificent seaport city.
The architecture of the building, as well as the actual focus on providing great amenities while remaining adventurous and eclectic are some of the lesser known strengths of the Envoy Hotel.
When you step into the Envoy Hotel for the first time, two words will immediately come to mind: elegant and creative. Rarely do we see these two concepts come together so seamlessly as in the case of The Envoy Hotel, which boasts of finely curated interiors and the most original room layouts designs not just for comfort, but for the highest appreciation of the city itself and the harbor.
The Envoy Hotel’s accommodations are what we call “harbor oriented,” which means the rooms will offer at least partial views of the Boston Harbor, which has played such a keystone role in the evolution of this modern and dynamic city.
Boston is known for being one of the prime getaways in the state and the Seaport District is one of the best places to visit. The Envoy Hotel is at the heart of the Seaport scene, and is the most convenient lodging if you’re visiting the beautiful city of Boston soon.
Here is our rundown of the top summertime places to visit in Boston after booking your stay:
The New England Aquarium – Makes complete sense right? Since Boston is a seaport city, it would have easier access to the denizens of the sea and the New England Aquarium never has shortages when it comes to displaying the natural beauty of the underwater world.
The most popular exhibits at the New England Aquarium are the penguin exhibit and the stingray touch tank. There are other shows that are periodically shuffled, but you can be sure that there will always be sea-themed shows at the aquarium for the entire family to enjoy.
Memorial Day is on May 28 and in Boston, this period also happens to be the beginning of summer in this great, modern city. With the warm weather comes tourist season – a time to enjoy the warmth and the great sights and experiences that come with visiting Boston this time of the year.
There are a ton of activities waiting for you in Boston Memorial Day. One of the more well-known events that kick off Memorial Day would be the Garden of Flags event, spearheaded by the Massachusetts Military Heroes organization. A total of 37,000 US flags will be planted at the Soldiers and Sailors Monument. This is done to commemorate all the servicemen and women who have offered their lives for the country since the Revolutionary War.
The Seaport District in Boston is a tourist and traveler’s haven and staying at the Envoy Hotel is just one of the perks of visiting the modern city. The first place to be at the Seaport District is the One Seaport, which is a premier commercial area with dining spots, shopping and other commercial spaces situated on three acres of land.
Here you can find fitness centers, great local and international cuisine, and great modern Boston architecture (they have two towers – The Benjamin and The Via). There are also seasonal events held here. Enter 60 Seaport Boulevard and you can easily get here from the Envoy Hotel.
