The Boston Planning & Development Agency on Nov. 21 approved the construction of a hotel complex at 660 Summer Street near the South Boston/Seaport District waterfront.
The 15-story Marine Wharf Hotel will actually be two inns in one: a 245-room Hampton Inn and a 166-room Homewood Suites (411 keys total).
The complex will include 19,300 square feet of amenities, including a fitness center, an indoor pool, and a 500-seat restaurant. There will also be 3,500 square feet of ground-floor retail.
Construction is expected to start in the middle of next year and take around two years. If the current hotel market in Boston is any indication, this new entry shall never be empty nor unable to charge high nightly rates.
