Well, looks like another hotel is on the Southie horizon!
We are about to get a new and very luxurious hotel complete with a giant ballroom, 1054 rooms (holy moly), rooftop pool and maybe even a skating rink!
The Omni Boston Seaport Hotel will be located on Summer Street across from the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center and will have 1,054 rooms. The giant two 20 story-tower complex will also feature an 8,500-square-foot spa and fitness center, many restaurants and retail.
The groundbreaking ceremony will take place on Tuesday, May 22nd at 9:30 am. On hand with ceremonial shovels will be Governor Charlie Baker, Mayor Marty Walsh, Massport CEO Tom Glynn and Managing Partner of New Boston Hospitality John G. Davis.
The project is estimated to be $550 million and will start construction in September. This hotel will be built without parking but is conveniently located from the “Transportation Center.”
