YOTEL Boston is a trendy high-tech hotel located in the heart of the city's Innovation District. It has a young, hip atmosphere and a very convenient locationperfect for exploring downtown area on foot. 

This stylish hotel, opened in June 2017, not only offers every possible convenience for your business or leisure stay, but also provides friendly customer service and a modern, well-designed space.

"Our YOTEL hotels are centrally located within city centres making it the perfect base whether you are staying for business or pleasure. Club Lounge offers everything from bars and restaurants to cool spaces for co-working and relaxing and the terrace is normally the place to be and be seen, especially with cocktail in hand." - YOTEL

YOTEL is all about innovative, flexible and smart design. Occupancy sensors automatically turn on/off the heating/lighting and cooling systems when the cabins (rooms) are empty. The colour palette is fresh and in tune with the latest fashion trends  Ultra Violet is the official PANTONE Color of the Year 2018. So it is hard to think of a more fashionable hotel for 2018  YOTEL ticks all the boxes.

Welcome on Board!

First thing that strikes you after arriving at YOTEL Boston is its ultra-modern technology. Innovative self-service kiosks (open 24/7) allow you to check in and check out quickly and without any hassle. They are located in the hotel’s Ground Control area, which is also staffed with a team of helpful crew members around the clock.

Second thing that grabs your attention is YOTEL's unique vocabulary. There is Mission Control instead of your regular reception desk, guest rooms are called 'cabins' and all employees are 'crew members'.

A Bit of History

YOTEL was created by YO! Founder Simon Woodroffe OBE and former YOTEL CEO Gerard Greene. The idea was conceived by Simon after he was upgraded into first class on a British Airways flight. He decided to translate the language and the luxury of airline travel and a touch of Japanese influence into a small but luxurious cabin.

Gerard had spent years staying in boring and expensive hotels and decided to do something about it. In 2002 he met with Simon, secured funding for a prototype cabin from our partners IFA Hotels & Resorts and then pulled together a team to evolve Simon's idea into reality. Together they embarked on an incredible journey to open the first airport hotel in 2007.

At YOTEL everyone is very passionate about hotels and they tried to create a 'First class experience at an affordable price'. YOTEL cabins may be smaller than traditional hotels rooms but through great design they offer a beautifully designed, flexible smart space to suit individual needs in which to relax, refresh, connect and sleep. They know the things that usually irritate guests about hotel rooms and they've tried to take them all away.

YOTEL rooms are compact, but very comfortable. All cabins feature luxury Serta mattresses with high quality bedding, multimedia panel with flat screen TV and international channels, free WiFi, and a bathroom with deluxe monsoon shower.

The signature ‘SmartBed’, designed exclusively for YOTEL, is the highlight of the Premium Cabin. It is fully motorised and glides at the touch of a button to any desired position. Adjustable beds are becoming the new standard for good sleep hygiene by providing comfortable and variable postures for reading, work and entertainment. 

A new Serta mattress, designed to provide optimal support and comfort, features a customized luxury designer knit cover and flexible construction to help ease the day to night transition for hotel guests. Setra is currently number one mattress manufacturer in the United States and the Only Official Mattress of the National Sleep Foundation. Setra's breakthrough gel memory foam technology provides cooling comfort and targeted body support. What could be better?
