The Row Hotel at Assembly Row, Autograph Collection is now open. The property’s design pays homage to the manufacturing industry for which its neighborhood is named.
“Our team is thrilled to be officially open and to welcome both visitors and locals to The Row Hotel at Assembly Row,” said Michael O’Shaughnessy, general manager. “We’re excited to be a part of the vibrant evolution of Assembly Row and Somerville at large, and are eager to provide a new perspective on Boston travel that affords guests the dual benefits of being both minutes from the city and in a neighborhood all its own.”
In the lobby, floor-to-ceiling windows create an airy feel and a sweeping spiral staircase edged in glass and galvanized metal invites the eye upward. A light-filled space enhanced by mirrors and artist Feliciano Bejar’s Magiscopes, the lobby invites guests to see Boston differently. Whimsical sculptures made of glass prisms and lenses atop reclaimed automotive parts, Bejar’s Magiscopes play with refractions of light and demonstrate how the slightest change in perspective illuminates a dynamic array of possibilities and visions.
The lobby is also home to Reflections, the lounge and breakfast café named for the dramatic effect of the Magiscopes and mirroring. Open for breakfast, lunch, dinner and cocktails, Reflections serves seasonal fare.
The property boasts nearly 6,200 square feet of meeting space, including four event rooms and an outdoor terrace, that can accommodate up to 300 people.
Among the 158 guest rooms are seven suites, featuring two sleeping spaces. The Premier King Suite offers one and a half baths, including an oversized standing tub and a wet bar. Every room features a luxe Serta bed, sleek workspace and comfortable and attractive seating options. In-room amenities include a plush robe, CO Bigelow toiletries, Illy espresso machines and Dammann Freres French tea.
Additional amenities include a communal guest pantry, fitness center, and pool. Adjacent to the studio is the indoor pool.
