Microhotel Trend Hits Hub City: YOTEL Boston A Seaport GemMicrohotels are cropping up everywhere (well, every major city). With their premium on saved space, central urban locales in most cases, hip lobbies and bars, and desk staff often doubling as concierges, there are pod properties from Washington, D.C. to Whistler. Many appeal to young or business travelers who spend little time in their rooms, were not raised staying in suites, are at conferences, or chose the hotels because of their proximity to their itinerary. In Whistler, Pangea Pod stores the skiers' gear together in areas different from their rooms. Pod DC is located in the Capital's Chinatown, and boasts a rooftop bar.
In Boston's thriving Seaport district, YOTEL features both indoor and outdoor seating with a panoramic cityscape view, at its Sky Lounge. Seaport is now home to companies, condos and hotels. YOTEL's cabins offer monsoon rain showers, mood adjustable lighting, Reclining SmartBeds™, and smart tv's guests may connect to their own devices.
Check-in at YOTEL takes place at self-service kiosks. The ground floor is called Mission Control, and the stylish Club Lounge there welcomes guests and locals alike. One may purchase snacks or drinks, use the business center, or be entertained by DJ's. The T's Silver Line stops at the corner, only two stations from Logan Airport. Again, convenience and ease of stay trumps suite size. The fitness center is open all day and night. Microhotels are not a thing, they're here to stay, and anyone will fall in love with YOTEL Boston.
