Best of Boston

2017 Best Boutique Hotel

The Envoy Hotel

Since opening its doors in 2015, the Envoy has served as a hip Seaport hangout for tourists and locals alike. Lodgers get to kick back in polished, design-minded suites that maximize both city and harbor views, while Hub dwellers can take in sweeping skyline vistas at the Rooftop Lookout and Bar, surrounded by ultramod seating and space-agey floor lamps. Not to be forgotten when the temperatures drop, the hotel also offers 7-foot-tall glowing igloos—yes, igloos—ideal for sipping a cocktail.
