A $6 Million Renovation – Complete with Podcasts

Conversion from a Best Western Plus to a 121-key boutique hotel in the Independent Collection, including a uniquely designed aesthetic to target the Cambridge audience. Freepoint’s renovation included a complete overhaul of the guestroom areas, and a re-imaging of all public spaces including a new indoor/outdoor courtyard and implementation of a new bar and F&B concept.

Cambridge’s demand drivers in bio-tech, R&D, and education have propelled consistent economic and market RevPAR growth; the challenging development environment has kept new lodging supply additions low. HHM partnered with Joyce Design for Architecture and Dash Designs for interior design. The project was completed in April 2017.

Along with the innovative and tech driven design, service and culture needed an upgrade too. An example of this is Freepoint Hotel having their own channel in RadioPublic, a free listening app. With these podcasts, Freepoint hosts recurring sessions that bring people together for intelligent and thoughtful conversations through their original series – Talking Point: Conversations with Podcasters at Freepoint Hotel.
