Medal of Honor recipients are recognized at week-long Boston convention

In the shadow of the Massachusetts State House Wednesday afternoon, a small group contemplated one man’s extraordinary act of bravery.

 

William H. Carney became the first Black person to receive the Medal of Honor in 1900, after he plucked the American flag from the 54th Regiment’s wounded flagbearer four decades earlier during the height of the Civil War, and refused to let it touch the ground through a gruesome retreat in which he was shot multiple times.

 

The crowd of several dozen gathered in front of the Shaw Memorial included around 25 of the United States’ 67 living Medal of Honor recipients, who are visiting Boston this week for an annual convention.

"The champion of this department was Levy Restaurants, an event and catering company associated with Hynes Convention Center. Levy’s cupcakes were basically beyond words. I’ve never tasted a better crafted cupcake in my entire 26 year-cupcake-eating-life."

The massive new Omni Seaport hotel ambitiously aims to offer something for everyone

The general manager of the Omni Boston Hotel at the Seaport, the mammoth new hotel that opened across from the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center this week, has a bit of a confession: The hotel’s rooms are secondary. The main draw is what lies outside of the rooms.

 

This isn’t to say that the 1,054 rooms at the Omni aren’t nice. In one of the Omni’s 22-story towers, the rooms are designed for microhotel trend-seekers with a love of stamped concrete ceilings and hardwood floors. The rooms in the other 22-story tower are more typical of what you’d find in a standard hotel, with deep blue drapes, wood details, and an abstract patterned carpet. But the real show takes place in the lobby.

"The BCEC is one of the few convention centers that offers free Wi-Fi service throughout the facility. It eliminates the need to negotiate this "must-have" service, results in considerable savings and satisfied attendees!
