The Boston Convention and Exhibition Center has more than 516,000 square feet of contiguous exhibit space, and 2.1 million square feet of flexible space, making it the largest exhibition space in the Northeast. It also has 80 carpeted meeting rooms for smaller, private gatherings or workshops. Since its debut, the center has hosted a wide variety massive of shows, including the New England Auto Show, eBay!

The facility is two miles away from Logan airport and is owned by the Massachusetts Convention Center Authority.
The push to build an entirely new convention and exhibition space in Boston began in the late 1990s, when Boston’s existing spaces were no longer large enough for some of the popular conferences and conventions. The Boston Convention and Exhibition Center opened in its current form in 2004, to great acclaim. Not only does the flexible space meet the needs of some of the largest exhibitions in the world, but it is beautiful and technologically advanced, as well, containing a grand ballroom with waterfront views, WiFi and cellular service throughout the space, and a video wall / media tower, all wrapped in a modern building designed by noted architect Rafael Viñoly.

"Comfortable, no frills, ideal for short-term stays"
Hotel was clean, comfortable, and the staff members were friendly and helpful. Complimentary breakfast had nice variety of options. Room and bathroom were clean and nicely appointed. Not a lot of[More]
on-site amenities, but a few restaurants within walking distance. My only complaints were based on personal preferences. I thought the pillows were uncomfortable - too soft for me - and there wasn't enough bedding. I prefer the room cool for sleeping, with heavier blankets, but there was only a thin coverlet on the bed. Overall, a satisfactory experience. I would recommend the hotel for short-term or business stays. [Less]
