Boston Marriott Burlington completes final phase of renovation

Boston Marriott Burlington completed an 18-month renovation. Now open to guests, the project’s final phase brings major improvements to the hotel’s meeting space and function rooms, as well as the fitness and pool areas that now have new exercise equipment, design updates and improvements to the fitness areas and locker rooms. The hotel’s indoor and outdoor pool areas were also upgraded.

A key focal point of the renovation is the Greatroom, a Marriott initiative that re-imagines the traditional lobby. This space has a fireplace, 14-person communal table, and U-shaped bar. The Greatroom also offers amenities that allow guests to work or play on their own terms, including complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi connectivity, plug-in charging stations, and media pod areas for meetings. In addition, there is a new “Market” gift shop.

Renovations to the hotel’s events spaces included the introduction of three private meeting rooms, called Ignite, Inspire and Imagine. The hotel’s existing meeting spaces, including the 9,000-square-foot Celebrate Ballroom, benefitted from technological enhancements and revitalized design. The 419-room hotel now has 14,570 square feet of meeting and banquet space.
