Rooms With a View: Seaport Hotel and World Trade Center

Transporting guests from the ceremony to the reception via water taxi, hosting a rehearsal dinner on a nearby boat or arranging a fireboat salute in Boston Harbor are just a few ways brides and grooms have taken full advantage of the Seaport Hotel’s location on Boston Harbor.


Everyone's always trying to wrangle a waterfront view—whether it’s from a restaurant table or a hotel room. You can’t blame them. There’s just something inherently romantic about a view of the water—from the wide-open horizon hinting at faraway destinations, to the way light sparkles when it hits the surface. Here are six unique reception sites with dazzling water views sure to make you and your guests swoon.

Transporting guests from the ceremony to the reception via water taxi, hosting a rehearsal dinner on a nearby boat or arranging a fireboat salute in Boston Harbor are just a few ways brides and grooms have taken full advantage of the Seaport Hotel’s location on Boston Harbor.

“It’s a unique vantage point,” says Nikki Wescott, the hotel’s director of weddings. “We have the great skyline views because we’re slightly removed from the city, but we’re surrounded by water.” Many couples choose the Seaport Hotel because they want a seaside wedding, she says, but don’t want to ask their family and friends to travel to the Cape. The hotel and World Trade Center (which is owned by the hotel) offer four ballrooms with views of the harbor and city skyline.
