Why Omni Boston Hotel at the Seaport is the Ultimate Summer Destination for Locals and Visitors Alike
Choosing a hotel for a vacation, staycation, or even just a day-cation, is a challenging decision. If you’re getting away for a week, find somewhere you could never grow weary of. For a weekend staycation, you’ll want to really max out on luxury and amenities. On a day trip, you’re probably looking for the best place to catch some rays (and a few good drinks) while soaking in the character of the city around you.
In Boston, there’s an apparent choice for any of the above scenarios. Omni Boston Hotel at the Seaport will satisfy your needs in all three cases of wanderlust (and everywhere in between), whether you’re coming from across the country or from down the street. Here’s everything you need to know about this incredible urban resort.
Rooms you’ll never want to leave
The hotel’s commanding exterior, with its sleek clean lines, gleaming steel, and glass, incorporates two towers: The Artist Tower and The Patron Tower. The hotel is a creative haven, with stunning design styles pay homage to Boston’s rich history of visual and performing arts, technological innovation, and unrivaled academic tradition. Throughout the hotel, you’ll find abundant features of artwork and perfectly curated furnishings. The result: an inspiring atmosphere that tells the story of local artists and stimulates the senses.
Omni Boston Hotel at the Seaport accommodates 1,054 guest rooms and an impressive suite collection across its 22 stories. The Omni guest rooms offer stunning views of the surrounding Seaport District, Boston Harbor, Massachusetts Bay, and the commanding Boston skyline.
Patron Tower rooms are adorned with rich colors and punctuated by furnishings with clean lines. Deluxe rooms start at 380 square feet fitting two queen beds or one king bed. The Junior King Suite is a spacious haven with floor-to-ceiling windows offering views of the Massachusetts Bay or Seaport skyline. These 500 square-foot rooms come with custom closets, a walk-in shower, and a double sink vanity. The One Bedroom King Suite offers 800 square feet of elegant space, with the same spectacular views and a modern color pallet inspired by the sea. In the One Bedroom, you’ll have a separate living area and a soaking tub in addition to the walk-in shower.
The Omni Boston Hotel at the Seaport prioritizes the wellness of its guests, offering a 24-hour Peloton-equipped fitness center, and Breve, a full-service luxury spa. You will also want to venture to the fifth-floor rooftop pool—the only rooftop pool in Seaport—to take a dip in the pool, soak in the summer sun, and embrace Boston with spectacular, crystal-clear views. Even if swimming isn’t on your agenda, you can visit the open-air Lifted Pool Bar, where you’ll be treated to whimsical, hand-crafted cocktails and delicious food.
After a day of relaxation and sun, retire at the lobby lounge, Crescendo, for hors d’oeuvres and cocktails. Indulge at any one of the hotel’s seven restaurants, such as Sporting Club, Coquette, or Kestra, the upscale all-day dining outlet featuring a dramatic Mediterranean-American flair.
Local tip: If you’re a day-cationer and don’t have a room at the hotel, you can still visit Lifted Pool Bar and enjoy the views (but you’ll need to book a room to use the pool).
