More Room Types

Named Boston Magazine’s Best Hotel, General Excellence in 2014, the Ames Hoel is chic without being pretentious. The building itself was Boston’s first skyscraper upon its completion in 1893. The historic exterior is juxtaposed with a sleek, modern interior.

Dining options include the on-site King St. Tavern. King’s Court is a daily happy hour(s); between 4-6pm, guests can mingle with cocktails and complimentary appetizers. If you’re a night owl, the After Party features a live DJ from 10pm to 2am every night. The grill offers set menus and à la carte options.

Nearby attractions include Christopher Columbus Waterfront Park, near Boston’s North End, or Frog Pond, where you can ice skate in autumn and winter.

Even the smallest rooms are 400 square feet, so you’ll have plenty of room to stretch your legs after a day of sightseeing.
