C O U R T E S Y O F YO T E L
YOTEL, the London-based micro-hotel chain, will soon open its second locale
in the U.S., in Boston's Seaport District. Slated to debut in June, the 326-key
hotel is being designed by Dallas-based Cullen West Interiors to reflect the
brand's value-centric luxury vibe, with oversized open social spaces and such
digital features as an airline-style self-service check in.
Like the brand's 6-year-old New York property, YOTEL Boston will also
feature the flag's signature cabin guest room concept, which project participants say integrates elements synonymous with luxury hotels into compact
spaces. Accommodations will feature the brand's retractable beds, adjustable
mood lighting and rain showers.
Plans for the property-which is owned by Wheelock Street Capital affiliates and is being developed by Boston Global Investors (the master developer behind the nearby Seaport Square development)-also include a
12th-floor rooftop terrace that will be home to a bar and restaurant with
Also in the YOTEL development pipeline for the U.S. are properties in San
Francisco (later this year), Miami (2019) and Brooklyn's Williamsburg neighborhood (2019). The brand's other expansion plans include Singapore (later this
year), followed by the Singapore Changi Airport (2019) and in Dubai's Business
Bay district (2019).
