The Envoy Hotel is a Boston waterfront luxury hotel like none other. Set against the beautiful city skyline, our iconic hotel has redefined what it means to stay in the great city of Boston any time of the year. However, if you really want to know a city and feel its magic, then you owe it to yourself to spend the holidays there.
The Envoy Hotel is considered a pioneer in the Seaport District. As an AAA Four-Diamond rated hotel, we offer 136 well-appointed rooms and newly renovated public and common spaces that are designed to heighten the overall guest experience. We’re also the home of the Lookout Rooftop Bar and the Outlook Kitchen – your perfect starting point for cocktails and your personal gastronomic journey down the city’s New England traditions and contemporary American cuisine.
Spending the holidays in Boston is fun and exciting. The city is vibrant, eclectic and alive especially during the holiday season. Looking for the perfect photo? Your first stop should be the Christopher Columbus Waterfront Park, which is hands down one of the prettiest places in the city this time of the year.
The park becomes even more memorable when a total of 50,000 blue lights light it up in late November, transforming it into a holiday wonderland. When you are done taking photos, you can move on to Quincy Market, which is a popular space for different kinds of events all year long. Catch events in the afternoon towards the evening, and enjoy the many stores, restaurants, and stops in the area.
If you don’t mind a short 20-minute drive, you should definitely check out the Stone Zoo, which is located in Stoneham. Marvel in nature’s regal beauty as the winter exhibits include animals such as wolves, cougars, black bears, and more. The best time to visit is in the morning, as it closes early at 4pm.
If you are spending a couple of days in Boston during the holidays, take note that there are plenty of places where concerts and other shows take place, such as the Boston Opera House. In addition to musical performances, you may also want to try alternative programming, like performances by The Boston Ballet. Simply check online for times and ticket availability and you’ll be all set.
In the event that you have younger kids in tow, there are many family-friendly spots nearby – including the LEGOLAND Discovery Center – where you can catch holiday exhibits and activities. Be sure to check schedules ahead of time, and you’ll be sure to have a great time with the kids. There are also different kinds of night and day tours for the whole family, from the North End Crime Tour to Boston Historic Tours.
Don’t forget! While there’s plenty to do around town, we have many great holiday offerings here at The Envoy Hotel.
We recently reopened our winter pop-up bar, which includes a new, spacious heated enclosure and the launch of a small bites menu. Our highly-sought after illuminated igloos have also returned – which are heated and outfitted with seating and blankets for those chilly winter nights.
Each igloo holds up to 10 people and may be reserved for a maximum of two hours. Igloos are available on a first come, first serve basis, though we strongly recommend making a reservation in advance. Book online or call now to reserve! 617 530 1559
