Overview

Ritz-worthy rooms with premium fitness on tap by day, theaters, craft cocktails and a bistro by night

The Lowdown

Boston’s old Ritz, a stately classic at the end of Newbury Street, was bought by Taj Hotels in 2006 — making way for a smaller, more casual cousin on the other side of Boston Common. Now, the city’s only Ritz-Carlton features 193 rooms, access to Sports Club/LA and a sophisticated but laid-back bistro and craft-cocktail bar. Rooms are spacious for a city hotel, with amenities and service standard of the Ritz-Carlton, plus a Club Level for an extra degree of exclusivity. Kids can select from a coloring book menu and embark upon a hotel scavenger hunt on arrival.

In the Area

Its location on the east side of Boston Common places the Ritz-Carlton in a slightly different environment than some of its luxury competitors toward the southwest, even though all are just minutes apart. Just off the historic Freedom Trail, the Ritz identifies with the lively Theater District, which buzzes with activity at night, from the Wang Theater and the Boston Opera House to the city’s swankier bars. Restaurants like Market by Jean-Georges anchor the neighborhood’s culinary scene, while Legal Sea Foods has outposts less than 10 minutes away in any direction.

Don’t be fooled. It’s a Marriott
JerseyGirl09

Just checked in. So far room and customer service are like a standard Marriott. Rooms are basic. Has a bathrobe which Marriott does not. Big deal And the room we requested wasn’t available at 4 pm checkin

Essentially a Limited Service Hotel - Great if all you want is a bed.

This was probably one of the most boring Ritz Carlton's I have ever stayed at overnight. One, because of the renovations, there really is no lobby whatsoever - I thought it was just the restaurant. The result is, you get your key, and head straight to the room. The rooms are just so so as well and the turn down service didn't bother to put up an ironing board.

Boston has a lot of great hotels, and most Ritz Carlton's are wonderful and with plenty of character. This one, especially with no lobby whatsoever to even meet friends and guests, was really a disappointment.

Summer in the Fall at Ritz Boston

Ritz Carlton Boston has a small lobby since it’s a smaller Ritz (compared to Ritz Tokyo and Sarasota) it’s in line with its other city locations such as Philadelphia but smaller than SF. The club lounge is intimate (small) but I enjoyed the top shelf and good selection of wine and food. Staff is professional - special shout out to Jose who was super attentive with smile.
Access to Equinox was fabulous
Looking forward to my next stay - oh yes my daughter left her Laptop which was quickly located and I had a relative still in Boston to pick up and drop off back to us in NYC
