Important: use only the CHA907 “Promo/Group Code” when making reservations online; do not select anything from the “Special Code” menu, which will override the quoted rate. Confirm that the reservation page quotes the $249/night before finalizing your booking.
Parking is available at the hotel for both overnight guests and day attendees. Please refer to the Parking section of the Seaport Hotel website for rate information.
It is not necessary to have a car in Boston! If you are traveling from out of town, we recommend that you do not rent a car and instead use the extensive public transportation system (MBTA or “the T”) to get around.
The most affordable option to get from Logan Airport to the hotel is to take the MBTA Silver Line ("SL1") from the airport to the World Trade Center stop. A one-way fare costs $2.00 per adult.
Another option for travel between the hotel and Logan Airport, is to make a reservation with a shuttle service ahead of time. While taxi service is available from the airport, shuttle services are typically cheaper. Shuttle options are listed on the Shared Van transportation section of the Massachusetts Port Authority website.
Driving directions to the Seaport hotel are available from the “Maps & Location” section of the hotel website. The hotel also includes directions via public transportation.
