We stayed here when we had to extend our New England trip due to the volcanic activity. This was one of the hotels which was provided and paid for by British Airways. I have to say what a treat it was to be staying in such a lovely hotel under the circumstances we found ourselves in.
The hotel is situated 3 miles from Logan airport and is within walking distance of the city centre. The immaculatley clean and unthreatening subway stop is a short walk from the hotel and can take you to Boston Common within minutes. Water taxis and ordinary taxis area also easily accessible close to the hotel.
The hotel stands proudly near the harbour and close to the Boston World Trade Centre. First impressions inside are positive, with the reception area being spacious, tidy and nicely decorated. A huge display of fresh flowers took centre stage in the reception, and modern artwork was on the walls. The reception staff were very friendly and hospitable, being especially sympathetic to our plight!!
Our 'deluxe-double' room on the 11th floor was spacious and very comfortable, having two double beds, a large flat-screen television, IPOD docking station and a Bose radio. Internet access was free and a computer was on a large work desk. The bathroom was adequately spacious and was stocked with towels and complimentary toiletries. Recycling bins were available in the room. The room was at the front of the hotel and had fantastic views of the harbour and the city centre.
Food was good at the Seaport - we ate there at breakfast, lunch and dinner during our three day stay and enjoyed tasty, freshly cooked food. The waitresses in the bar area were very professional, and we especially enjoyed breakfast as the waiters were incredibly funny and accommodating.
All in all we had an enjoyable stay at the Seaport Hotel and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone. Thank you to the volcano for allowing us the opportunity to experience the Seaport - had we gone home on time I feel we would have missed out!!!
