Hotel AKA Boston Common
What it is
A modern yet cozy retreat with a 24-hour gym and a locally beloved bar scene at the Better Sorts Social Club.
What it isn't
Equipped with its own pool and spa. But you won’t miss them. Who comes to Boston to swim?
What we think
If we could think of one word to define Hotel AKA Boston Common, it’s this: plush. Somehow the hotel has done the nearly impossible by combining a sleek and modernist envelope with comforting design, including plumply tufted leather headboards, supple velvet upholstery and Eames lounge chairs (even the “starting” room category, which is anything but basic.) Rooms begin at 280 square feet, so it may be worth upgrading to a suite; each is equipped with a separate living space and bed linens direct from Europe. If you’re staying midweek, don’t miss Vintage Wine Wednesdays at the bar; you’ll have access to tipples like a 2000 pinot noir from Clos de la Roche Grand Cru and a 2001 vintage of cabernet franc from Chateau Tour Grise Saumur in the Loire Valley. We’ll always cheers to that.
You're here because
You like to feel pampered at a hotel, and this one offers water at check-in, gratis coffee in the lobby, and welcome beverages in the lobby lounge each afternoon.
After a day of pounding the cobblestones, you’re absolutely famished. And so delighted that the glitzy Better Sorts Social Club is right here on the hotel premises. A lobster roll on brioche, braised short ribs and chocolate molten cake heaped with berries are just what the doctor ordered.
