Four Seasons Hotel One Dalton Street
What it is
A new 61-story skyscraper with an artfully curved indoor pool, spa that takes up an entire floor, and three exquisite restaurants (including a Japanese izakaya bar).
What it isn't
Just for CEOs and other business tycoons. Littles are treated to luxury here, too, thanks to a Kids Concierge and in-room amenities (teensy cotton robes; warm stuffed animal welcomes).
What we think
Boston is among America’s best college towns, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t know pampering when it sees it. At Four Seasons, all guests have a VIP experience—including twice daily housekeeping (plus turndown service); 24-hour in-room dining (don’t miss the lobster cobb salad); and same-day dry cleaning and pressing, handy when you’re running late to a Zoom meeting. Guest rooms are ready to wow, too: even the “starter” superior rooms have floor to ceiling windows, marble-stocked bathrooms, Nespresso machines, bars filled with local tipples and sumptuous king beds you’ll never want to get out of. For plenty of room to roam, we adore the Charles Suite: the 1,300 square foot respite has a separate dining and living room, plus a wraparound private terrace.
You're here because
The indoor pool complete with floor to ceiling glass windows would create limitless envy in every Boston founding father.
The hotel’s izakaya restaurant, Zuma, has locations in London and New York, among others—and one glance at the menu and you’re starting to understand why. Your first bite of seabass sashimi with yuzu, truffle and salmon roe is so good it puts a tingle in your toes.

On tony Dalton street in Back Bay, within walking distance of the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum—built in 1901 and stocked with Vermeer’s and Botticelli’s, and made famous in the 90s for a major art heist that’s never been solved.
