Meet our Chef Concierge, Danny Vargas.  Yes, you read that correctly - Chef Concierge.  Danny was recently admitted to Les Clefs d'Or, a prestigious organization that is the global professional association of hotel concierges, as symbolized by the two crossed gold keys he wears on his lapels.  

Born and raised in Chicago, Danny's hospitality career has taken him around the country, including to Dallas and Maui.  He made the leap back to the "mainland", landing in Boston, where he worked at both the Colonnade Hotel and the now Loews Hotel before joining the Seaport team.  We are fortunate to count him as our friend and colleague for the past ten years.  In his time away from the hotel, he loves spending time which his two children, Olivia (6) and Mateo (2), as well as his wife Leanne; they enjoy exploring the city as much as possible.  He remains an avid fan of Chicago sports teams and loves to cook, especially outdoors.  

Danny has pulled together a number of suggestions designed for guests with many hours to spend sightseeing (4 - 8 hours).  Enjoy!  

Things to see & do in 4 or more hours:

The Freedom Trail: Located at the tip of the Boston Common at Park Street is a two and a half mile walking tour that incorporates seventeen historical stops along the way. You may walk the trail on your own or join a guide tour leaving from the Boston Common. Tours are led by an 18th Century costumed guide that transports you back in time to the American Revolution. Official guide brochures of the Freedom Trail may be purchased at the Boston Common Visitors Center or pick up a free guide at the visitor's center next to the Old South Meeting House.  (Boston by Foot operates a tour called Boston by Little Feet for ages 6-12 years, please see Concierge for schedule) (4+ Hours; it's a 30 minute walk from Seaport to the starting point at the Boston Common).  

And on the Trail:

 - Paul Revere's House: The home was built in 1680 on the site of the former parsonage of the Second Church of Boston. On the night of April 18, 1775, silversmith Paul Revere left his small wooden home in Boston's North End and set out on a journey that would ultimately make him a legend. Today that home is still standing at 19 North Square and has become a national historic landmark. It is downtown Boston's oldest building and one of the few remaining 17th-century dwellings situated in a large urban area.  

 - Union Oyster House:  Located on the Freedom Trail, near Faneuil Hall, the Union Oyster House enjoys the unique distinction of being America's oldest restaurant. This Boston fixture, housed in a building dating back to Pre-Revolutionary days, started serving food in 1826.  

 - Bell in Hand Tavern:  The Tavern, the oldest in the country, has been around since 1795. A gathering place for printers and politicians, sailors and students, it quickly became the most famous ale house in the city. Stop by and enjoy a bite or a beverage while on the Freedom Trail.

 - Old North Church: Founded in 1723, the Old North Church is the oldest standing church in the City of Boston, made famous by Paul Revere's midnight ride and, "One if by land, two if by sea."  

Old Town Trolley: See the best of Boston on this 1 hour and 45 minute (2 hours with traffic), fully narrated tour. From Beacon Hill to the New England Aquarium, the Back Bay to Boston Common, Old Town Trolley is the best way to see Boston. Hop on and off at any of the 20 designated stops. It picks guests up on the pier across the street from Seaport.  The trolley runs from 9am-5pm. (4-8 hours).  

Interesting trolley stops:

Stops #8 & 14 - Beacon Hill, Boston Common & Cheers: These two stops are some of the most historical stops on the tour. Beacon Hill is one of Boston's most picturesque neighborhoods and it still features stone walk ways and small narrow streets. Boston Common is the oldest city park in the country.  Cheers is the original bar in Boston that the television show was modeled after; it is still in its original form. 

Stops #9 & 11 - Prudential Center and Copley Place mall:  The Skywalk Observatory at stop #9 provides one-of-a-kind city views.  Copley Place is a shopping mall connected to the Prudential Center, creating two malls in one.   

Stop #2 - North End Boston:  Boston's Italian neighborhood, it is the city's oldest residential community.  Guests will never go hungry in the North End with over 80 restaurants in this neighborhood alone.  If you are feeling hungry for a mid-day snack, stop by the most famous pastry shops in the North End - Mike's Pastry or Modern Pastry.  Regina Pizzeria is the perfect stop for a slice.
