Hilly terrain, beautiful old houses, and stately public buildings distinguish Worcester, MA, the Beechwood Hotel’s under-the-radar location and New England’s second-largest city, 40 miles west of Boston. This former industrial city is entirely off the beaten track but has surprising tourist appeal, and the 73-room Beechwood Hotel is a major draw. It’s the only design hotel west of Boston, with an unusual five-story round tower, built to echo the design of a nearby landmark state hospital that’s since been destroyed. Rooms are done in mix-and-match color schemes that feature creamy muted tones such as pale avocado, straw, and café au lait, which allow the owners’ art collection to shine. Don’t miss the framed Vanity Fair images from the 1860’s, on display in the bar area.

Room to Book:

Rooms in the "tower" section of the hotel are triangular and have full blackout shutters; those on the long side of the building have double-height ceilings and skylights.

Insider Tip:

Don't miss the historic chapel off the hotel ballroom: it was formerly an Art Deco masterpiece from 1901 and was purchased by the owners from Worcester's City Hospital. The space has stained-glass windows, oak wainscoting, and an original beam ceiling.
