Boston Globe Spotlight

We’re pleased to share our feature in The Boston Globe that ran today online.  The article,  “Upscale hotel expected to open in Downtown Crossing this fall,” is the first look inside our hotel, including a photo of one of our guest rooms overlooking Washington Street.

The article states, “It took some imagination to see the dilapidated Blake and Amory building along Washington Street as the future home of a new upscale hotel in downtown Boston.

But the company that bought the historic building two years ago for $23 million has been working to revive it ever since. Construction will continue through the summer and the owners expect the new 242-room Godfrey Hotel Boston to open on the corner of Washington and West streets in the fall.”

The article gives more details on what our hotel design will look like, including:

  • Oak paneling
  • Plenty of couches and coffee tables
  • Porcelain flooring
  • Large windows that open out onto the street.

And, as our General Manager Larry Casillo poignantly said, “What we’re trying to do is happily marry historical grandiose architecture with a modern inside.”

You can see the full article here.

We’ll continue to keep you updated on the progress of our hotel and exciting articles that cover our property.
