Boston’s Envoy Hotel completes expansion, renovation of Lookout Rooftop

In Boston’s Seaport District, the Envoy Hotel has completed a $4-million expansion and renovation of its Lookout Rooftop.

Lookout is an outdoor space with views of the Boston skyline and waterfront. The space expands to nearly 2,500 sq. ft. and increases capacity to 390. The expanded venue also has a brand new Harbor Lounge, a seated section with lounge seating and harbor views. This space is reserved for VIPs and private events.

The rooftop space also has greenery punctuating the venue’s design and softening the roof’s hard surfaces. The space has flexible, shared seating near the main bar, as well as the more private and secluded Harbor Lounge. In use are muted and natural tones that call on the hotel’s nautical-themed interiors.
