Omni Hotel Holds Grand Opening in Seaport

Omni Hotels & Resorts’ Omni Boston Hotel at the Seaport marked its grand opening recently. At 1,054 keys, it’s reportedly the largest hotel project to open in the city in decades.  

“Boston is such a symbolic city in our nation’s history, and we look forward to extending our presence by bringing an entirely new hospitality experience to one of the city’s growing neighborhoods,”” said Peter Strebel, president of Omni Hotels. “Omni Boston Hotel at the Seaport is a true reflection of modern Boston.” 

The property is a joint venture between Omni Hotels & Resorts and New Boston Hospitality, a group of Boston-based real estate firms and investors including The Davis Companies, Washington Capital Management, Spot On Ventures, The Taylor Smith Group, Boston Urban Development, and 39 local minority investors. 

Prior to the grand opening, executives from Omni, New Boston Hospitality and Washington Capital held a ribbon-cutting ceremony.
