Guests who stay at the new Encore Boston Harbor in Everett will have floor-to-ceiling views of the Boston Harbor and city skyline, luxury marble bathrooms, and voice-activated controls. The $2.6 billion five-star gaming resort, due to open June 23, began accepting reservations at the hotel inside its 27-tower building this month.
Guests will be able to spend the night in 567 standard hotel rooms and 104 suites. The 650-square-foot hotel rooms are offered in premiere king and premiere double, as well as premiere harbor view king and premiere harbor view double.
“Those would be the largest standard hotel rooms in New England,” said Encore Boston Harbor president Robert DeSalvio. “And there’s nothing standard about them.”
The neutral-toned rooms feature custom furniture, a 55-inch 4K ultra HDTV, beds designed exclusively for Wynn resorts by Sealy and outfitted with 507-thread-count linens, bedside mobile charging devices, high-speed Wi-Fi, and espresso makers.
The marble bathrooms have dual sinks, a separate shower and deep-soaking tub, a seated vanity with mirrors, and a 24-inch flat screen HDTV mounted on the wall.
“We’ve got a wireless iPad in the room, and that does all your touch access for room control in the rooms,” DeSalvio said. “We have voice-activated control in the rooms as well, [by which guests can control] the curtains, lighting, heating, and air-conditioning.”
Of the 104 suites, 63 offer a harbor view, according to DeSalvio. The 1,350-square-foot suites each have an entry foyer with a powder room leading to a living and dining area. They’re also decorated in neutral tones, have floor-to-ceiling windows that offer plenty of natural light, a 65-inch 4K ultra HDTV in the living room, and a 55-inch 4K ultra HDTV in the bedroom.
Visitors looking for even more space can rent one of 18 two-bedroom residences with 3,350 square feet of living space, or one of two three-bedroom, 5,850-square-foot villas with double-height ceilings located at the very top of the building, DeSalvio said.
When guests aren’t in their rooms, they’ll have plenty of options for entertainment. The resort will feature a 210,000-square-foot casino, 50,000 square feet of meeting and event space, a spa with 17 treatment rooms, a sauna, and a eucalyptus steam room, a fitness center that overlooks the water, as well as a nightclub, hair salon, and retail stores. Guests also will be able to choose from 15 different places to eat and drink, with food that will vary from Italian to Asian and a buffet that will seat more than 400 people, according to DeSalvio. Outside the resort, guests will be able to spend time on a six-acre Harborwalk.
The resort will offer daily water transportation via three 40-passenger custom water shuttles, DeSalvio said. They will run from the resort to the World Trade Center in the Seaport and also to Long Wharf in the Financial District.
Rooms currently start at about $645 per night, while suites range from $1,245 to $2,650 per night (not including the residences and villas). You can reserve a room by calling 857-770-7100 or going to encorebostonharbor.com.
