Ritz-Carlton, Boston Common

Map
10 Avery St., Boston, MA 02111, United States

Boston’s only Ritz (the Taj chain bought the famous Back Bay property in 2006) is an 12-story glass-and-steel monolith that looms above the Common’s greenery. Opened in 2001, the hotel transports you—oddly—to 1985; the glitzy marble lobby, filled with flowers and a 10-foot fireplace, is pure Trump Revival. Thankfully, the 193 guest rooms are a bit more subdued, with velvety earth-toned upholstery, feather beds, and Frette bathrobes—appealing amenities after a workout in the adjacent 100,000-square-foot Sports Club/LA (where $15 gets you near-round-the-clock access).
