Why We Love It

  • Has more than a mere fitness center -- guests get free access to a full-fledged Equinox Sports Club
  • 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
  • Not the cutting edge of style, but features calming neutrals and plush furnishings

Overview

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.

From the press:
  • “One of the city's best gyms, with its own spa, salon, and pool” -- Oyster.com
  • "Knowledgeable and memorable service that includes doormen who remember your name" -- Zagat
  • “A sleek, contemporary spot that speaks more to rock stars than royalty” -- Fodor’s
