Built in the 1920s and once home to the Boston Police Department, this 10-story Beaux Arts beauty has found new life as a boutique-style sleep in the heart of Back Bay. The landmark hotel anchors Berkeley and Stuart streets and lives up to its healthy Walk Score (a 95, in fact) by placing you within stumbling distance of historic Copley Square, Boston Common, the Public Gardens and the swanky shops of Newbury Street. Inside, the tiered lobby has pocket-sized common areas with a sense of intimacy amid the urban setting, while a frosted glass staircase leads the way to a stiff drink and a bit more esprit de corps in the Precinct Kitchen + Bar downstairs.
Bed & Bath
The hotel’s 225 guestrooms and three suites reveal a range of cityscapes beyond large picture windows; indoors, there are contemporary dark wood furnishings, upholstery in a muted palette, and pillowtop bedding draped in Frette linens. Order up room service (available 24 hours), make use of the free WiFi or just catch a late night flick on the 37-inch LCD TV. The oversize marble and oak bathrooms are stocked with all natural bath amenities.
Back Bay runneth over with top-rated dining and nightlife venues, but the hotel’s Precinct Kitchen + Bar is a big contender, serving up steak, pasta and seafood, either in the swank hotel interior or along the sidewalk terrace. To burn a few calories from those hearty meals and cocktails, don’t miss the well-stocked 24-hour fitness center, which is always free for guests.
In the Area
You’ll run out of time long before you exhaust your see-and-do list in Boston. For those with family in tow, don’t miss the Freedom Trail, a two-and-a-half-mile route that follows a brick path to 16 historical sites around the city — and is easily accessible from the hotel. For a shorter stroll, explore Boston Common and the Public Gardens, which are mere blocks away. In season, take your pick of pro sports diversions at Fenway Park or the TD Garden, each just a short walk or T-ride from your room. Or, for those who consider retail a sport, hit the shops of nearby Newbury Street, Copley Place or Faneuil Hall.
How to Get There
Lovely hotel good size room quiet and huge bed. Water should be free not charge $8 per bottle. Coffee maker in room would like kettle to make tea. Free coffees and tea in lobby which is lovely room to relax. Good location
This was a great place to spend the weekend in Boston. The hotel staff were very welcoming and made our stay great. The hotel is walking distance to so many great sites and restaurants. We had Sunday brunch in the hotel’s restaurant, Precinct Bar and Kitchen, and it was delicious. The room was clean and surprisingly quiet for the middle of Boston. We would stay here again.
The hotel has a luxurious but modern interior. Great service, always friendly and attentive. Great restaurant. This hotel is a perfect place to explore Boston, almost all the sights are in walking distance.
My wife and I recently stayed here for 3 nights visiting Boston for the first time.
First off, the rooms are huge. We paid for the entry level room and were pleasantly surprised with how large it was. The hotel definitely fits in the luxury category. It is beautiful all through out.
Only negative was we were on the second floor and there is a bar on the basement level which is very busy each night. The noise travelled up so I guess if you put a request in would be to ask for a room on a higher level or on the southern end of the hotel. Nothing much the hotel can do about it so other than that highly recommend this hotel.
Not much reminded of its previous function. Luckily. Expensive for European standards; as seems the general rule in Boston. We liked the breakfast and the kitchen in general. We stayed 4 nights and tried just about everything on the brekafast menu.Friendly staff
