The W Boston Hotel and Residences ‘jumps the crane’ last week. This 25 story mixed use project which includes a 235 room hotel, 123 residential condos, retail, restaurant and spa use, and 142 underground parking spaces will be located at the corner of Stuart and Tremont Street. (The actual address will be 100 Stuart Street)
Set to open August 31st 2009, The W Boston Hotel and Residences already has its temporary website up. The Starwood Hotel will be another addition to the growing brand of luxury hotel and condominium “Flags” in downtown Boston. With the Four Seasons Hotel & Residences, Ritz Millennium and the new Residences at the InterContinental, the W Boston Hotel and Residences will round off this growing fad of full service, ultra luxury living in downtown Boston — with a twist.
Like the Condo Hotels listed above, The W Boston Hotel & Residences will be whole-ownership condominiums, unlike what W has done in the past where they are true ‘condo-hotels’ and you need to put your unit in the rental pool and can only stay in your unit X (usually 20-60) days per year. Think of it like..this is a normal condominium that sits right on top of the hotel. Just like all the other condo hotels in Boston, there will be a separate private entrance, but owners will have access to all the hotel services if they choose!
From the website…
The W Boston makes its dramatic entrance into the fashionable and storied theatre district, an icon of contemporary sophistication where culture, shopping and nightlife buzz amid cobblestones and a Victorian landscape.
You say contemporary luxury, we say the signature W bed, fully wired technology, fantastic entertainment system and fabulous Munchie Box. And Whatever/Whenever service to make wishes come true (hard-to-get reservations, sold out tickets, anything!).
