Seaport Hotel transformed

The Seaport Hotel, the first hotel in Boston’s Seaport District, completed major renovations that saw the transformation of the property into an entirely new hotel offering.  All of the Seaport’s 428 guestrooms were updated with new amenities, adding new décor, technology and guest preference features. In addition to the guestrooms, the renovation also encompassed the newly expanded and reinvented TAMO Restaurant & Bar.

The Seaport also received all new energy efficient lighting, heating and cooling system and in-room recycling.  Each room now includes a Telkonet energy management solution, which allows for better control of the room lighting and temperature. Guests can leave and enter their room several times a day and the Telkonet system will turn off heating and lights to conserve energy and will automatically reset all systems exactly to what they were as guests approach their room. The new lighting plan is complete with a master on/off switch at the bedside and front door, as well as power sources at the bedside.  Each room also now has an edge-lit, 46-inch LED high-definition television.   

Redesigned bathrooms added space and now include enhanced lighting, walk-in showers in many rooms, fog-free mirrors, and Gilchrest and Soames bath amenities. Suites include televisions built into the bathroom mirrors, walk-in rain showers and heated floors. Every room also includes laptop-sized safes with interior lighting.
