Updating Our Map of the Many Hotels Going Up in Boston

View as Map

It seems every week brings news of yet another new hotel in Boston. No two ways around it: The city is in the mist of a hotel-building boom, one to rival its frenzy of apartment construction. Given the recent approvals for the Boston Marriott Moxy and the Congress Square boutique, we've updated our heatmap of hotel construction. The 23 projects here are either on the drawing board, under construction or newly opened. By our back-of-the-envelop calculations, the city will see around 4,700 new or significantly renovated rooms come mid-2017.

AC Hotel by Marriott

Copy Link

The 200-room inn will be the first of the Millennial/Gen X-targeted Marriott brand in Boston. It is part of the Ink Block mega-project and should open in 2017.

The Godfrey

Copy Link

The Godfrey will include 242 rooms in a hotel with a lobby bar; a 24-hour fitness center; complimentary Wi-Fi (not as common as you think!); and what a release from the developer describes as "state-of-the-art-digital technology." It's expected to open this fall.

The Aloft

Copy Link

The 330-room Aloft is expected to open in February 2016 barely a half-mile from the convention center. Its rates will reportedly be cheaper than the mid-$200s at the nearby Westin.

The Element

Copy Link

The 180-room Element is expected to open in December next-door to the Aloft and barely a half-mile from the convention center. Its rates, too, will reportedly be cheaper than the nearby Westin's.

Courtyard Boston TD Garden/North Station

Copy Link

The 210-room project, expected to open in 2016, is part of the much larger Merano project. The hotel portion will actually be two separate inns: an extended-stay Town Suites by Marriott and a Courtyard Marriott.

Hilton Garden Inn Boston Logan Airport

Copy Link

The 178-room inn opened this summer.

Park Plaza

Copy Link

The once magnificent-but-not-so-much-anymore hotel remains open as it undergoes a massive renovation. The lobby is pretty much done, and the revamp of some 1,054 rooms is scheduled to start in November.

The Envoy

Copy Link

The 136-room Marriott-run hotel will have 4,000 square feet of retail space. It's part of the company's luxury Autograph Collection and opened this summer.

40 Trinity Place

Copy Link

This large-scale redevelopment of the John Hancock Hotel & Conference Center is slated to include 220 hotel rooms. The Boston Redevelopment Authority has O.K.'d the project, including its two-story lobby starting on the 18th floor, though it appears to be stalled amid objections to its scope from surrounding residents.

1 Dalton Street

Copy Link

Officially to be known as the Four Seasons Hotel & Private Residences One Dalton Street, Boston's tallest new building in a generation will include 211 hotel rooms amid its 61 stories. The whole thing is expected to be finished in 2017.

Boston Landing

Copy Link

The Boston Landing mega-project, which should all finish opening in 2016, will include a 175-room boutique hotel.

6 West Broadway

Copy Link

The 14-story, 156-room boutique got its final O.K. in October 2013, and is expected to open this year.

Hilton Garden Inn Cleveland Circle

Copy Link

The larger-scale redevelopment of the old Circle Cinema site is due to include a 162-room Hilton Garden Inn. The project is still under review by the city, though.

Haymarket Square Hotel

Copy Link

Nothing's finalized yet, but a 10-story, 180-room hotel is currently part of a much larger complex just off the Greenway.

Marriott Residence Inn Dudley Square

Copy Link

This 150-room Marriott Residence Inn seemed to be cruising toward approval at the start of 2015; then community opposition over whether or not the hotel would employ union workers tossed a wrench in things. Stay tuned.

Chain Forge Building

Copy Link

The Boston Redevelopment Authority just approved plans for the conversion of the old Chain Forge Building into a 230-room extended-stay hotel with a 6,000-square-foot restaurant.

The King David

Copy Link

Plans were put forth earlier this spring for what would be a 69-room, brick-and-limestone inn on a three-acre site. It would include a synagogue as well as a kosher restaurant.

Loftel Boston

Copy Link

The owner of the downtown Boston hotel XV Beacon plans to convert a former factory into a 127-room boutique with a restaurant. Nothing's been finalized or approved yet. A.k.a. 151 Porter Street.

Yotel Seaport

Copy Link

Construction on the 11-story, 307-room collection of pods (nothing bigger than 200 square feet) is expected to get underway this August.

Hotel Commonwealth

Copy Link

A big-time renovation and expansion is adding 96 rooms of 425 square feet each.

Boston Marriott Moxy

Copy Link

Each of the 346 rooms in the 23-story building, the first Millennial-focused Marriott Moxy-branded hotel in Boston, will be 175 square feet each.

Congress Square Hotel

Copy Link

The 133-room boutique will be part of the much larger Congress Square redevelopment. The Boston Redevelopment Authority approved that project in late July.

DeNormandie Wharf

Copy Link

The redevelopment of the former Hodge Boiler Works is slated to include a six-room bed and breakfast overlooking the Harbor.
