Owning the distinction of being named the 2014 Best Hotel, General Excellence by Boston Magazine, the Ames Hotel is chic without being pretentious. The historic building -- considered Boston’s first skyscraper when constructed in 1893 -- takes shape around the hotel’s sleek interior. Sparkly, modern chandeliers and leather furnishings adorn the lobby, where large glass doors invite the outside in.

Foodies will rejoice at the dining options, including the on-site King St. Tavern. Partake in King’s Court, which happens daily from 4-6pm. Order cocktails and pass around complimentary appetizers or come to the "after party"; there's live music or a DJ from 10pm-2am, every night of the week. The grill provides a four-course prix fixe menu with succulent entrees like filet and salmon. Ordering a la carte is also an option.

With a full stomach, stroll 10 minutes to nearby attractions like Christopher Columbus Waterfont Park near Boston’s North End or head the opposite direction to the Frog Pond (where ice skating is popular during winter months).

As the day concludes, seek refuge in a minimalistic, yet fulfilling guest room that showcases arched windows, and a marble bathroom with a walk-in shower. Even the smallest rooms are 400 square feet, which is large by big city standards.
