I stayed at the Seaport when I couldn't get a room at a different hotel. The rooms were nice and the staff were friendly. However, I was pleasently surprised by some of the other aspects of my stay.
The first thing I noticed is that this hotel has a somewhat "green" attitude. You can recycle your newspaper and other misc stuff. I appreciated this because most hotels tend to be very wasteful.
The hotel also discourages tipping. This is a little strange and I left a tip for housekeeping anyway, but I would guess that they must do a reasonable job of compensating their staff.
OK, all the other stuff is nice, but the best thing about this hotel is the health club. It has free weights, cardio machines, weight machines, spin classes and a lap pool. The health club is not huge, but it is fantastic by hotel/resort standards. All this was included in the price. No better way to burn off some stress and some of the calories from work-related travel!
If I had to give an overall summary, I would say that people who are really interested in "luxury" might find this hotel only adequate. I really appreciated some of the characteristics that make this hotel different.
