BOSTON—A new 120-suite Residence Inn by Marriott opened this week in downtown Boston’s Seaport District, transforming a six-story historic 1900s building into a modern-day hotel. The structure was once likely used for sugar and molasses warehousing.
The Residence Inn Boston Downtown/Seaport will operate as a Marriott franchise, owned by an affiliate of Norwich Partners and managed by True North Hotel Group. Group One Partners of Boston served as architect and designer.
Originally developed in 1901 by the Boston Wharf Company as the Stillings Building, the repurposed hotel features brick-walled studio and one-bedroom suites with two flat-screen TVs, and 12-foot ceilings. Custom wall wrap photography spotlights local landmarks. Each suite also has a kitchen with a coffeemaker, microwave oven, and residential-sized appliances.
Additional amenities include complimentary Wi-Fi, a 24-hour onsite food and beverage market, dry cleaning services, a fitness room with exterior windows, and a business center.
