As with most Ritz-Carlton hotels, it's the top-notch service that lifts this pricey pad above all the other pricey pads in Boston. Past guests uniformly rave over a team that greets you by name, hails a cab, pours a cup of coffee, and fluffs up a duvet for nightly turn-down.
Do not expect flashy or cutting-edge interiors. This hotel has the kind of neutral, contemporary furnishings that make you feel comfortable but aren't trying to impress you with high style. What will impress though is the health club. It's expansive and upscale, a full-fledged branch of the tony Equinox Sports Club chain, with 114,000 square feet of spa, swimming pool and class studios.
The hotel is right across the street from Boston Common and on the same block as the Chinatown stop of the T transit system. Chinatown itself is home to lots of affordable dining spots, or a 10-minute walk north to historic Beacon Hill offers swankier options.
