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
We stayed here for one night on our way home. The hotel is very nice. The staff was amazing. The location was just right for what we needed. The bed was extremely comfortable. The towels were HUGE! Would stay here again!
No complaints at any point or for any reason with this beautiful hotel and it’s very friendly, helpful staff. Easy , cheap ($7)transfer from Logan using the Logan Express bus right outside arrivals. Straight to Copley Square and a 2 block walk to Loews. Simple, quick check in , lovely, clean spacious room . Good facilities & extremely good position for exploring Boston on foot or otherwise. Loved the whole experience. Thank you .
We enjoyed our stay at the Loews. The room, though not large, was well equipped and comfortable. Good shower and heated towel rail. Complimentary coffee was available in the lounge in the evening, and there was a coffee maker in the bedroom.
The hotel is well situated within easy walking distance of shops and restaurants. However the free wifi did not always work satisfactorily. Excellent restaurant: sensibly priced. Pleasant, helpful staff.
This hotel is in a great, fabulous, historic building. The building has a lot of soul and spirit. Staff was fantastic, and very accommodating. Rooms are very comfortable - definitely enjoyed staying here and will return on my next trip to Boston. Its in a great location and makes getting around Boston extremely easy
Stayed here for almost a week for a conference. Do not like to text service once you arrived. If something is wrong, I know who to call. I do not need all the reminders and emails other hotels also send. I know I am coming and I know where I need to be. I do not need to be reminded. Breakfast can be quicker. Room was nice, but overlooking a wall and other bedrooms, so had to close the curtains all the time. Room was rather dark. Toilets are way too low. I am 6 foot 7 and this toilet is even low for a midget. For the rest it has a bed and a shower. Good enough while attending a conference.
