Neighborhood key for Omni Boston Hotel at the Seaport, city’s largest new inn since 1984
The 1,054-room hotel is counting on attracting not only business travelers via the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center across
The largest Boston hotel since the 1,144-room Boston Marriott Copley Place opened in 1984 is aiming to be a destination not only for business travelers using the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center across the street but for locals or tourists.
“What I think is happening with the opening of this hotel is that D Street and Summer Street will become Main and Main,” said Mike Jorgensen, the recently minted managing director of the under-construction Omni Boston Hotel at the Seaport at 450 Summer Street.
The 21-story, 1,054-room hotel with 52 suites is due to open in June 2021. It will be Boston’s fourth-largest hotel, and will include a run of attractions and amenities that its parent hopes capitalizes on a burgeoning surrounding neighborhood, a general boom in the Boston-area hospitality industry, and the possible expansion of that convention center—which the $550 million Omni Boston will be connected to via an underground pedestrian tunnel.
