The long-planned Yotel Boston at Seaport Boulevard and Sleeper Street in the Seaport District plans to open on June 22.
It will bring with it the smallest hotel rooms in Boston.
The bulk of the 11-story inn’s 326 rooms—or “cabins,” in the chain’s parlance—will run to just 149 square feet. Corner cabins will range from 200 to 225 square feet; and there will be a 1,000-square-foot VIP suite on the top floor.
The Yotel—only the second in the U.S. after one in New York—will also be quite smart in its technology, per the Herald’s Donna Goodison. Such tech will include sofas that convert to large beds within 30 seconds; mood lighting; and so-called techno walls with smart TVs and all sorts of device plug-ins.
The inn will also have club lounge, a gym, and a rooftop lounge.
Rooms are expected to run from $200 to $250 a night—and will surely be snapped up.
