The Marriott Residence Inn Boston Downtown/Seaport is a six-story hotel transformed from a 1901 warehouse. Located in the Fort Point district of Boston, the renovation highlights the original building’s industrial character through exposed brick walls, post and beam construction, and the prominent 1901 boiler doors found in the lobby. The historical charm is melded with modern day functions, ultimately creating 120 extended-stay, loft-styled guestrooms with 12-foot-high ceilings. The hotel’s public space is situated around a six-story interior atrium topped with a glass skylight that provides natural light to every floor. Structural challenges McSal overcame include uneven floors across the building and a low existing foundation capacity.
