Hotels in Back Bay
Housed in three interconnected brownstone townhouses, including a main building constructed in 1882, the Newbury Guest House is an independent hotel on Back Bay’s fashionable Newbury Street.
Masculine yet cozy, the 225-room Back Bay Hotel is laden with history: the 1925 limestone edifice with ornate friezes fronts one of Boston’s last Italian Renaissance Revival buildings, which was police headquarters for 70 years.
Constructed in 1886 as a private residence, this historic brownstone is now a renovated owner-operated hotel in the Back Bay area. Inside, brick corridors lined with colorful local art lead guests to 40 rooms designed by renowned stylist Dennis Duffy.
This contemporary brick landmark offers a truly prime location: it’s literally across the street from the glittering and meandering walking paths of the Public Garden (Newbury Street’s shops are also just a few blocks away).
The epitome of Boston sophistication, the Taj Boston, formerly the Ritz-Carlton, is perfectly perched in downtown Boston overlooking both the Public Garden and the Frog Pond at Boston Common. The hotel, originally opened in 1927, feels like a luxurious, opulent private residence.
