Hotel for convention center OK’d

The Massachusetts Port Authority and the Massachusetts Convention Center Authority will jointly try to develop what could be the largest hotel in Boston — a 1,200- to 1,500-room complex near the city’s convention center in South Boston.

Approved by the boards of both agencies Wednesday, the venture will seek out developers to build a new headquarters hotel on Massport land across from the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center near the corner of Summer and D streets. It would be one of the largest hotel projects in the country, according to the convention center authority.
