This past weekend, I had the opportunity to staycation at Aloft Boston Seaport. Since I rarely venture over to the Seaport District, my staycation actually felt a bit like a mini-getaway…without any travel time!
If you’re new to Boston, you may not know that until fairly recently the Seaport was a bit of an under-utilized spot. It had the federal courthouse, Anthony’s Pier 4, and the World Trade Center. Otherwise, in my memory anyway, it was basically a stinky, fishing hub filling the gap between downtown and Southie.
Flash forward 15 years and it’s a booming neighborhood of sleek high-rises, multi-million dollar condos, tech companies, scattered green spaces, and lots of amazing places to eat.
With the weather FINALLY consistently nice, it felt like a good time to get re-acquainted with the area. I’d heard that Aloft Boston Seaport has a killer view and fun bar, so I was excited to check-in for two nights!
I arrived around 6 pm on Thursday night, giving me just enough time to check in and get settled (and check out that stunning view) before Live at Aloft started at 8.
