BOSTON - June 13, 2014 - PRLog -- The Residence Inn Boston Downtown/Seaport hotel was honored with the “Best Custom Project” award at the 2014 Marriott LINK Conference held last month in Indianapolis. Group One Partners, Inc. – the hotel architect, interior designer and purchasing agent – accepted the award on behalf of hotel owner, Norwich Partners. The hotel operates as a Marriott franchise and is managed by True North Hotel Group.

A six-story hotel located on Congress St. in the Fort Point Channel Landmark district in Boston, the Residence Inn Boston Downtown/Seaport is one of many adaptive reuse projects in its neighborhood. The hotel was transformed from a turn-of-the-century warehouse building into a Marriott hotel with 120 extended stay guestrooms. Opening in June 2013, the hotel has 11-foot high ceilings, glass elevators in the 1900’s-era subway tiled atrium, lobby lounge, meeting room, fitness room, guest laundry, day/night bar, and ground floor restaurant and retail spaces.

“Originally developed in 1901 by the Boston Wharf Company as the Stillings Building, the historical renovation and design of the property included highlighting the industrial character of the building while accommodating the modern comforts of the marathon business traveler,” says Harry Wheeler AIA, NCARB, LEED, principal of Group One Partners, Inc.

Throughout the hotel, custom wall wrap photography by local artists highlights Boston landmarks. The original 1901 boiler doors are also featured as an art expression. The brick-walled studio and one-bedroom suites include flat-screen TVs, a work desk, and a fully equipped kitchen with a coffeemaker, microwave, and residential-sized appliances.
