The Ritz-Carlton, Boston
About the Hotel
Why We Love This Hotel
- Fresh off a $13 million dollar redesign in 2017, including updated rooms and public spaces
- Rooms feature large marble soaking tubs, twice-daily housekeeping and evening turndown service
- Boston Common is next door, and top Freedom Trail sights are within a 10- to 15-minute walk
- The staff sets this place apart, with friendliness and enviable attention to detail
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.
A $13 million dollar renovation in 2017 brought this historic hotel into the 21st century. Guest rooms feature USB charging ports and 49-inch LED TVs with Netflix, Hulu Plus and Pandora streaming access. The decor is understated but elegant with 400-thread-count Frette linens and marble bathrooms with deep soaking tubs.
The Equinox Sports Club Boston, directly connected to the hotel, offers guests access (for a fee) to top-of-the-line workout facilities including an 25-yard lap pool.
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.
General Hotel guests 16 and over will have access to Equinox Sports Club, directly connected to the hotel.
