I was in Boston all week for the National Business Travelers Association Convention. With a name that long you might think it is a really serious event, not so. Basically this was a convention of thousands of people who are and represent business travelers in various capacities. There were airline representatives, hotel employees, and many various industry representatives from chafer services to computer booking agencies.
Being representatives of Starwood and aloft hotels we worked hard and put on a great show. The go-go was full from an hour before open to long after close each day. Everyone was interested in what such a cool Airstream trailer was doing in the middle of the convention hall.
There were representatives of all Starwood brands on cite and they were really good about bringing clients over to aloft. It was neat to meet Starwood representatives from all over the world.
Here's some Starwood talent and people who came by to learn more about aloft hotels:
Since the hours were quite short for the convention we were able to get out on the town a little. For those of you who might be going to Boston for the first time here are some restaurant pointers.
If you want to splurge a little I highly recommend going to Mistral on Columbus Avenue. They have great tartar which is my favorite. Another good place for dinner is the Atlantic Fish Company located at 761 Boylston Street. This is a good seafood place and you can sit outside and do some serious people watching. If you are looking for a little more of a laid back atmosphere, check out Seaport Bar and Grill. It is located at the Wharf at the World Trade Center. It has a rooftop deck with live music and a fun atmosphere.
