Chic city digs in Boston’s Back Bay with business class perks and a banging bar

The Look

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.

Not worth the price

The room overall was clean and fairly upgraded with the exception of the bath tub and shower. However, I would not recommend this hotel due to the fact the rooms are extremely loud at all hours of the day and night due to old, thin windows. I’ve stayed in city hotels before and never had an issue with the noise like I had here. You could literally hear people talking while walking down the street at night and I was on the 9th floor. Also, the heating and cooling system is horrible and loud and made the room either too hot or too cold. Its not like this a cheap hotel, so I expected much more. If you need a good night’s sleep, I would not stay here.

Great hotel in the heart of back bay

Great stay at the Loews hotel, whilst on business in the Kendall square ecosystem. Good location to access Boston Common, the river, bars etc in back bay, as well as simple to get across to Cambridge. The rooms are very well presented, and the breakfast choices in the precinct bar in the basement were excellent.

Great location, friendly staff and wonderful accomodations.

This is a great hotel located very close to the Back Bay and the South End. I have stayed here in the past and was impressed - glad to report that this hotel is still awesome! Checkin could not have been easier - front desk pleasant and efficient. The lobby was clean and well attended too as well - nice that there is a bar right downstairs too! The room was modern and very well appointed...also quiet because I needed to get up early! Overall a great stay!

No hot water. Room was super loud. Facing Berkeley and we was so loud I couldn’t sleep. Staff lied and told me they didn’t have any king beds when I clearly paid extra for one. When pressed they miraculously found a subpar room.

Very kind staff

My mom and I were only at this hotel for about 6 hours due to my dad being in a Boston hospital, so we were not able to enjoy all that it had to offer. I can say that the front desk did everything they could to empathize with out situation and make us comfortable. They upgraded our room, kept our car out front so we could hop in and go at a moments notice, gave us extra water, etc. Told me how sorry they were that my dad was sick. They were lovely.
The room was gorgeous as one would expect. We will certainly return under happier circumstances.
