A new hotel in development for 15 Harrison Ave. in Chinatown will provide guests with housing, but not with food, according to Universal Hub. The proposed hotel project will replace a building currently located on the 3,400-square-foot lot, Sampan reported, and while other details of the project are planned, a built-in food source is not.
The 26-story hotel will have 126 rooms and six suites, but the lack of a kitchen or restaurant is meant to encourage guests to explore the food available in the neighborhood. The site for the proposed hotel is just around the corner from Beach Street, a hotbed of restaurants stretching from Washington Street to Chinatown Park. A number of new places have popped up in the area recently, like Double Chin, Cuong's Vegan (My Thai Vegan Cafe's new sandwich-oriented sibling), and more.
Any new development on that site would also have easy access to the restaurants of Downtown Boston, the Theater District, and the Leather District.
