To us, a name is more than a simple compilation of letters. A name signifies who you are and what you stand for; it defines you. In selecting the name, “The Godfrey,” there were a number of words that define our characteristics and who we are as a brand.
While we’ve shared a lot of photos of the guest room and lobby progress, there is one area we haven’t really shown you yet. Our George Howell Coffee space. Slated to open a bit after the hotel, George Howell Coffee will be to the right of the front lobby, opposite of our lobby bar and restaurant.
About this time two years ago we gave you a sneak peek in to how The Godfrey Chicago does laundry. Now it’s time for us to show you how things will be done in our Boston hotel as well.

As we near the holidays, we gave a little gift to ourselves – even more updates around the hotel. Our guest rooms are already set up and ready for opening, so we’re excited to see the rest of the hotel come together as well.

You most likely don’t think about air that often, but it’s something we put a lot of thought into while building The Godfrey Boston.
