The South Boston Waterfront officially welcomed the Marriott Residence Inn Seaport to the neighborhood, after city officials and company executives cut the ribbon on the property Monday.
Located at 370 Congress St. and boasting 120 extended stay hotel rooms, the $50 million project aims to serve business professionals and those looking for a hotel for more than a few nights.
Mayor Thomas M. Menino joined developers that afternoon to snip the ribbon on the six-story building, which was constructed in the early-1900s. The building is believed to have once housed a sugar and molasses warehouse, according to the Boston Globe.
