Recently, the Marriott Long Wharf Hotel, located in beautiful Boston, kicked off an event with WIRED Magazine as part of their new Culturazzi Series. The event, called the Marriott MeetUp: Five Startups to Watch, featured host and champion of the startup world, Alexis Ohanian.
The event brought several of the most innovative members of the technologies cutting edge to the hotel. Not only will the Marriott Hotels and Resorts continue to celebrate entrepreneurship in Boston and elsewhere, but they shine as a destination for these events.
Some of the other Culturazzi Series events include:
- Humor Me Comedy Showcase in Marina Del Rey, California
- Art Beats in San Francisco and
- The WIRED Store of Curated Holiday Tech Products in New York City

|It Really Is the Little Things
I toured the Marriott Long Wharf Hotel facility. The hotel – one known for its ideal location and top-notch service – has a sleek, stylish new look with appointments that will please anyone who’s got a need for digital connectivity.The overall interior design certainly impressed me, but it was the little details that really sold me. Each seat in the eating and bar areas came equipped with its own electrical outlet, so guests could plug in their various mobile devices. For families, choosing to unplug may represent the optimum; for business travelers, the ability to remain connected when grabbing a quick bite is often essential. This well equipped hotel gives guests the power to choose.The hotel provides high-tech and high touch for the savvy business traveler with brand new, huge flat screen televisions in two of their well-appointed business centers. They offer a state-of-the-art fitness room complete with new exercise equipment – equipment I haven’t seen at my own gym. They even have an indoor pool!
Location and Luxury – What a Pair
| I love Boston and when I’m there, I like to stay at a beautiful hotel that’s close to visitor destinations. The Marriott Long Wharf Hotel offers just that. Take a quick look at some of the places you’ll have the opportunity to see:
What more can I say? This gorgeous hotel is in an ideal location, and the view – the view is not only inspiring, but beautiful to behold. Since I don’t have the words to explain this vision, I’ll let the pictures from my visit speak for themselves.
|I woke up to a magnificent stunning view of the sunrise, what a way to start the day!
But the experience isn’t just for families and casual travelers; business sojourners will enjoy excursions to the easily accessible, richly historic Long Wharf and bustling downtown Boston.

A Boston State of Mind
|It’s the little things in life, and I feel that the Marriott Boston Long Wharf Hotel captured the essence of what travelers need to stay comfortable while away from home. I love nice things, but being comfortable and feeling truly cared for while away from home is key when traveling.
I’ve always loved the charm, the pace and the friendly people from the Boston area. This is the best time of year to visit this beautiful, historic city. Thank you to the Marriott Long Wharf Hotel, and the detail-oriented team, for your personal touch and exquisite hospitality.
Stay tuned and I’ll share even more about the Culturazzi Series and an interview with none other than Alexis Ohanian.
