It's not just rental apartments and luxury condos getting in on (and going up in) Greater Boston's Great Development Boom. It's also hotels! For the first couple of years of the decade, nary a shovel was shoved in furtherance of a new hotel in Boston proper, and now the city is staring at the very real possibility of up to 4,000 new rooms.
We culled the Boston Redevelopment Authority, our own archives and media reports to build a fulsome map of where these new hotels are going. A few are part of larger mixed-use projects that will also have apartments, offices, etc. And we did not include those hotel projects that seem especially tentative, such as the 300-roomer attached to the Caesars pitch for a casino-resort at Suffolk Downs or the hotel once planned as part of New Brighton Landing (or the Yotel rumored for the South End). Instead, these are all projects completed or announced in the last 12 months as well as those under construction. If we missed any, do let us know!
