Hotels

The Boxer

A chic boutique hotel at Boston’s North End, The Boxer’s 80 rooms for rent are modern and meant to reflect the New England city’s industrial roots. Boston is known as a big city with a small-town feel, and part of that vibe is the city being very walkable (weather permitting). With that in mind, The Boxer aims to capitalize on the city’s many pedestrian-friendly parks and streets by offering a complimentary bike rental service. Oh, and did we mention it’s one of our favorite pet-friendly hotels in Boston?

The Eliot Hotel

Entering into an ornately, primarily marble, lobby it is immediately evident that The Eliot Hotel is an excellent establishment for a luxurious stay in Boston. The Eliot is decorated with old school features, like patterned curtains for example, but does so without seeming dated — instead, things are tasteful and have a touch of modernity. For those looking to experience a different side of Boston, Fenway Park (home of the Boston Red Sox) is only a half-mile walk from the hotel. Boston fans are about as passionate as they come, and Fenway is arguably one of the two most historic ballparks in the country (the other being Wrigley Field in Chicago), so even those who don’t love baseball will enjoy the setting. Plus, good news for those who love to have a beer or two at the game, the Eliot’s award-winning restaurant UNI serves late night ramen!

Mandarin Oriental Boston

When the Mandarin Oriental Boston call themselves “award-winning” they really have the hardware to back it up. Holding both a AAA Five Diamond Award and a Five Star award from Forbes, Boston’s Mandarin Oriental is one of the most picturesque and quintessential luxury hotels in New England. Foodies will enjoy access to Bar Boulud, the onsite restaurant that gives patrons the feeling of dining in a wine barrel due to the wooden vaulted ceilings. The restaurant features an impressive wine cellar, raw bar, and 17-seat zinc-top bar, not to mention, the delectable French-inspired cuisine that emphasizes Boston’s famous seafood.

Grand Colonial in Historic Boston

Another spot along the Freedom Trail, this townhome’s exterior, complete with stone lion gargoyles, really makes vacationers feel as though they are staying in a home from the past. With soft yellow wooden slates, a contrasting red door, and a shingled roof, it is easy to imagine this home looking identical 200 years ago. The interior decoration mimics the Colonial style architecture, yet is still extremely cozy.

Beacon Hill Brownstone with Panoramic Roof

Located amongst the historic cobblestone streets of Beacon Hill on Charles Street, this four-bedroom home presents a pleasing accommodation option to renters with its high ceilings, hardwood floors, and beautiful floor-to-ceiling windows. The fourth floor of the home gives guests a taste of how old the neighborhood is, as it was clearly built to be a Victorian ballroom but has since been converted to a living room. The views of the brick homes and old-fashioned buildings from the rooftop deck are unbelievable.
