From the farthest reaches of Eastie to the Brookline-Boston borderlands to Roxbury and the North End, Boston is undergoing an oft-overlooked hotel-building boom. Why overlooked? Because the apartment/condo boom is so damned loud. Really, though, assuming all 16 projects plotted on our map get done, the city is slated to see at least 3,745 new hotel rooms by 2018. Some plans are more tentative than others—40 Trinity Place, the Marriott Residence Inn Dudley Square—but some are well on their ways, including the under-construction 1 Dalton Street, which will include a Four Seasons amid its 61 floors, and the massive renovation of the Park Plaza, which has more than 1,000 rooms to redo. Our map, too, it should be noted, doesn't include recently opened hotels such as the Verb—only those either planned or under way.
Update: This map was expanded on April 7, 2015 due to recently approved and proposed hotel projects.
