Bladerunner style at Yotel Boston
By Ian Thomson
I have been longing to stay at a Yotel. Set up by Simon Woodruffe, this chain delivers pod-style rooms (the chain prefers to call them cabins) in airports (Heathrow, Gatwick, Paris CDG and Amsterdam Schipol) and city centre locations, with Boston the most recent opening. Their USP is to deliver a quality version of the basics - powerful rain showers, feather pillows and duvets, free wifi. There are a few frills too, like complimentary mineral water, tea and coffee, and toiletries in the bathroom.
I'm currently taking Thomson & Scott Skinny Prosecco and Skinny Champagne to Boston, and staying at its new Yotel. I'm planning a visit to the Yotel San Francisco, opening too (I'm clearly becoming a Youpie, if that's what a Yotel groupie can be termed!). My favourite thing about Yotel Boston, I guess unsurprisingly, is its super cool rooftop bar. It's got Bladerunner-style rooms, comfy beds, and is in a great location. We're pouring in its rooftop bar, which is exactly where I am in the video below, mixing business very happily with pleasure!
