The Envoy Hotel, Autograph Collection

The Envoy Hotel, Autograph Collection

The city of Boston is on the rise with a flourishing scene in hospitality. Hotels like The Envoy prove just the spectacular possibilities Boston is capable of. Located in the heart of Boston’s innovation district, discover a hotel with a pretty unique set up. Bold interiors, interesting art pieces and easy style are set in contrast to the city’s New England traditions.

Modern and stylish, yet efficient, rooms are oriented to the water, and have a quintessentially urban view of Boston. Simple layouts that provide floor to ceiling windows, give you the sense you are floating over the harborfront. Perhaps the most unique aspect is the rooftop of the hotel, where you will find The LOOKOUT Bar & Grill boasting views of Boston. In the summer this is obviously one action packed spot, but it does not compromise its location in winter either, when unique bubble tents are erected, so you can still sip, savor and keep warm.

Downstairs in the lobby level of the hotel, you will find The OUTLOOK Kitchen + Bar American, which draws its inspiration for cuisine from the unique Boston landscape. There are of course seasonal variations to dishes, locally sourced food, all resulting in a “one of a kind” approach to their food and drink. Highlights include sharing dishes like the Blue Bay Hill Muscles (in thia curry with cilatro, served with fresh sourdough bread) or the Grilled Italian Eggplant (sprinkled with sunflower and pomegranate seeds and served with Green Goddess naan bread.) Mains vary from seafood dishes like the Seared Atlantic Halibut (served with grilled baby bok choy, barley and mushroom broth) to their Kurobuta Pork Chop (served with sunchokes, carrot puree and warm baby greens.)  Dine away all while overlooking the wondrous waterscape the hotel sits on.

The bar highlights hand made craft cocktails, infusions and micro brews including a special beer brewed specifically for OUTLOOK Kitchen + Bar, small batch bourbons, single malt scotches an interesting, carefully selected wine program. Cocktails like Elevation (New Amsterdam Gin, Limoncello, White and Vine, topped with soda and watermelon) prove the bar’s unique mixology menu. Even if you just come for the food and drink, be sure to stay to experience the live entertainment offered at least 5 nights a week.

All in all, The Envoy raises the bar of exciting things to come in this ever growing city.
