Hotel Commonwealth was voted one of the Best Hotels in the USA by U.S. News and World Report. This elegant boutique hotel on Boston’s Back Bay is within walking distance of Fenway Park and many of Boston’s cultural and historical attractions. Boston Harbor Hotel is located on the historic waterfront. The Boston Harbor Hotel is a member of Preferred Hotels & Resorts Worldwide and is rated a five-star hotel by Forbes.

The Wauwinet borders a wildlife refuge on the northeast corner of Nantucket. This historic hotel offers guests breathtaking views, sophisticated service, and outstanding cuisine.

Rich décor and lavish antiques create a warm and inviting hideaway.
Check-in at Aloft is via a circular Aloha kiosk reminiscent of the e-ticket machines at airports—only staffed. You also have the option of using smaller, unstaffed kiosks, which will not only check you in to the hotel but also print out airline boarding passes.
In the center of Sandwich, the Belfry Inne occupies three restored buildings, including a former church and the Painted Lady, a turreted 1882 Victorian house.
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.
The inn has eight units in the 1836 Greek Revival mansion and an additional two garden cottages.
The colonial inn features a stone fireplace and is frequented by Amherst alums sipping single-malt scotch. The patio overlooks the village green and serves mulled cider from nearby organic farms. Rooms in the Wing section have private balconies.
This 19th-century compound centers on a pool and gardens. The clientele is very social (and mostly gay).
The boutique resort and spa is painted in warm pastels, and is just a half-block from the beach. Ask for the Oscar Wilde room, which overlooks the town’s emblematic Pilgrim Monument.
The Royal Sonesta looks over the Charles River from the Cambridge side, with views of Boston Harbor and downtown Boston.
Once run by the Coast Guard to protect boats navigating the Cape Cod Canal, the Wings Neck Lighthouse, in Pocasset, can now be booked by families or other groups.
One of Boston’s first modern design hotels when it opened in Beacon Hill in 1999, the surprisingly homey 63-room XV (call it “Fifteen”) has stylish, bold interiors that contrast nicely with the 1903 Beaux-Arts building.
To stand out in the fashion-forward Back Bay, interior designer Frank Nicholson approached the hotel as if it were a gallery. Everything has an artistic touch, from the blond-wood contemporary furniture to the masterpieces by Frank Stella and David Hockney.
