No. 9 Nine Zero
With its sleek, minimalist décor, Nine Zero brings modern chic to the historic area around the Freedom Trail. Yes, connecting to Wi-Fi from your ergonomically molded chair while looking out over the lichen-cloaked headstones of Paul Revere and John Hancock may seem paradoxical, but the classical location keeps the hotel’s clean-lined interiors from feeling too coolly contemporary. Just be prepared: while the 190 guest rooms are stylish—with butter-yellow walls, streamlined dark-wood furnishings, and beds with padded headboards—they’re also on the small side.
