I don't know if this is brand new hotel or not, but I think it may be since it's in a newly developed spot on the Boston Seaport, walking distance from a few new restaurants. My boyfriend and I came for 2 nights for a wedding weekend for one of his college friends.
Although we arrived a couple of hours before official check-in, which is 3pm, the very nice and efficient desk attendant allowed us to go ahead and check into our room. They also had the wedding welcome bag ready to go. They even left a message for us on the first night to make sure we received the welcome bag for the wedding.
The whole hotel is nicely decorated and modern, but not in an obnoxiuos trendy way. I didn't check to see if they had in room free wireless.
Even if you're not in a room facing the water (we weren't), you still have decent view of the city, though we had to look around the building directly across the street. Still the view was plesant and vast.
I also wish I bought my swimming suit because they have a serene and sleek-looking lap pool indoors on the 5th floor that was virtually unused when we checking it out in the middle of the afternoon.
The room itself was spacious and had room enough for empty areas and a 3 seater sofa. The bathroom was a standard size, and the bath products were nice, too - Aveda. The bed was plush and comfortable.
I would stay there again in a heartbeat if I went back to Boston. My only caution would be staying on the seaport in the cold months because then it may be too cold to walk around the seaport and go into the city.
Mid-Septebmer, when we stayed, the weather was still fairly warm and spring-like, and at night I didn't need a jacket to walk around. A light sweater was good enough.
