Staying in the newest hotels in Boston lets you be among the first to experience the newest trends in amenities and perks - rooftop decks, indoor swimming pools, creatively themed onsite bars and restaurants, and hot locations.
You may also get great rates and opening discounts, especially if you're among the new hotel's first guests.
We list these new hotels in Boston in the order of when they opened, starting with the latest.
Dazzling modern architecture in a brand-new building, an indoor swimming pool with private cabanas, and a relaxing roof terrace are just a few of the reasons to love The Row Hotel, located next door to Boston in Somerville.
Best of all, the hotel puts you right at the center of the exciting Assembly Row shopping/entertainment complex, yet just a 5-minute subway ride gets you to Downtown Boston.
1234 Soldier's Field Road, Boston's Allston neighborhood
Hip boutique hotel across from the Charles River and Herter Park - close to Harvard Stadium (site of Boston Calling music festival), Harvard University, Harvard Business School, Boston University's West Campus, and the Head of the Charles Regatta.
Look for affordable rates at Studio Allston Boston, spacious rooms with vibrant art by local artists, a Cuban-themed restaurant and bar with music, and a fun vibe.
No public transportation nearby unless you walk about a mile to the Harvard Square subway station - a pleasant walk - but assuming you avoid rush hour traffic, a car service ride such a Uber or Lyft to central Boston and back will cost a lot less than parking in the city for the day.
Courtyard by Marriott Boston Downtown / North Station at TD Garden
107 Beverly Street, Boston's North End neighborhood

You get all the usual Courtyard amenities, plus the pleasure of staying in a bright new building with great views from upper floors.
225 Albany Street, Boston's South End neighborhood
Located at Ink Block, an art-filled mixed-use complex once home to the Boston Herald newspaper operations in Boston's lively South End neighborhood, the AC Hotel by Marriott Boston Downtown offers a large fitness center, an outdoor dining terrace, and spacious well-designed rooms with a clean contemporary vibe.
You're also within easy walking distance of the South End's many acclaimed restaurants - plus there's a Whole Foods next to the hotel.
Boutique hotel The Alise Boston (formerly the Chandler Inn) offers 56 spacious rooms and a warm welcome in a mostly residential area of the South End neighborhood close to many wonderful restaurants and just a short walk from Back Bay Station (Amtrak, subway, commuter rail lines) and the designer boutiques at Copley Place.

65 Seaport Boulevard in Boston's Seaport District/South Boston Waterfront
YOTEL Boston offers a unique combination in Boston's hotel scene: affordable luxury with "micro cabin" tiny but luxurious rooms at very competitive (read "cheap for Boston") rates, a super location in the sizzling hot Seaport District, and top-notch public space amenities including amazing city skyline and Boston Harbor views from their spacious 12th floor rooftop bar and terrace.
Stay here, and you'll be within walking distance of downtown plus all Seaport attractions and waterfront restaurants.
No. 284 - Luxurious Guest House in Boston's Back Bay Neighborhood

At No. 284, a small luxury guest house featuring original art in a beautifully restored Victorian mansion overlooking tree-filled Commonwealth Avenue Mall in the heart of Back Bay, you'll enjoy gracious public spaces such as a tranquil library and courtyard garden, personalized service, and luxurious accommodations.
Each of the 23 guestrooms and suites offers a special experience - or indulge yourself with a stay in the magnificent penthouse featuring an Andy Warhol lithograph.
The new Homewood Suites located less than 3 miles from Boston Logan Airport is sparkling clean, modern, comfortable, and an affordable choice whether you're flying in/out of Logan or want (relatively) cheap accommodations close to Boston with public transportation access.
Getting around is easy: take the hotel's shuttle to the airport, and either hop on your flight or head into Downtown Boston on the subway's Line or Silver Line, or a water taxi. Even easier: walk a couple of blocks from the hotel to a commuter rail station with service into Boston's North Station - an 11 minute trip.
Another perk: Homewood Suites Boston Logan offers free parking at the hotel.
Hilton Garden Inn at Patriot Place by Gillette Stadium

Porter Square Hotel's 65 guest rooms and suites are a welcome addition to places to stay near Harvard University's Cambridge campus, plus a subway Red Line station hear the hotel puts the rest of Boston within easy reach.

Plus if you arrive by car, Porter Square Hotel offers overnight valet parking at one of the lowest rates in the Boston/Cambridge area - as well as affordable rates for your accommodations.
At first glance, there's no obvious reason to stay in this sleek new AC Hotel on the western edge of Cambridge unless a work trip brings you to the business/research park where it's located.
But here's the "hidden secret" lure of the AC Hotel Cambridge for Boston or Cambridge visitors: it's just a 5-minute walk to Alewife Station on Boston's Red Line, which will get you to Harvard Square in 10 minutes or Downtown Boston in 20 minutes.
You can also typically find significantly lower rates here compared with pricey downtown hotels, especially if you book in advance.
And the hotel itself is lovely, with plushly comfortable guest rooms and well-equipped suites, stylish public spaces, and a tranquil outdoor terrace.
