These newcomers give you a whole new reason to visit their respective city centers—yet they command a trip all on their own.

10. The Godfrey Hotel Boston, Boston

12 of 18

Snug in Bean Town’s ‘hood-of-the-moment (Downtown Crossing), this 242-room hotel—with a Chicago sib of the same name—will, any day now, greet guests with a lobby coffee bar from a leader in America’s artisan-coffee scene (George Howell, the purveyor behind George Howell Coffee Café). The hotel is born out of two adjacent historic buildings constructed in 1904 and 1908. Plaid headboards, heather-gray carpet, glass-enclosure showers and Frette linens cultivate a classic look in each room, while the tall windows reveal Boston’s skyline. Midcentury decor (think orange, gray, and brown) drives the lobby design. Techie note: the hotel’s Innspire lets you stream, on the 55” HDTV, music, television shows, and movies—as well as access hotel services—through your personal devices. Up next: a restaurant.
