It never hurts to follow in the Ritz's footsteps, and when Taj took over this hotel, they inherited its top location and graceful bone structure. The look is classic and upscale: heavy drapery, traditional furnishings, gold, brass and marble accents. No points for trendy style, but plenty of praise for the space: The standard room is nearly twice the size of the Boston average, and suites are huge.
All suites also come with wood-burning fireplaces, complete with a fireplace butler. There's also "Boston's best" afternoon tea service (Fodor's) and a rooftop apiary providing honey for the cocktails.
Guests consistently praise the accommodating and friendly staff, as well as the neighbourhood. Right across the street is Boston Public Garden, which leads you on a five-minute amble to the Boston Common. The hotel is on the edge of Newbury Street, lined with some of the city's swankiest shops.
"In true blueblood fashion, the décor is upscale, but not flashy, with richly-textured wall fabrics and tasseled drapes in a palette of beige, gold, rose and blue" -- Forbes Travel Guide
"An excellent luxury pick" -- Oyster.com
