    If you're looking for a family-friendly getaway in Nantucket, consider The Nantucket Hotel & Resort. Recent visitors raved about the amount of kid-friendly amenities offered by the property, as well as the warm, welcoming staff. In addition to supervised day and evening programs for children, the hotel also provides bicycle rentals, two outdoor heated pools (one that's solely reserved for adults) and family portrait sessions from a local photographer (some activities and amenities cost extra). Lodgers reported that the on-site Breeze Restaurant was also kid-appropriate, with a separate menu just for picky eaters. If you'd rather dine off the resort, you'll find a variety of options within walking distance thanks to the hotel's central location in downtown Nantucket, just a half-mile west of Brant Point Lighthouse. The property is also within walking distance of the ferry docks and is less than a mile from Jetties Beach (the hotel offers complimentary NRTA Wave shuttle tickets to the beach). Rooms are equally family-oriented, with some suites accommodating up to 15 guests. Accommodations are equipped with Frette linens, iHome radios, coffee makers, TVs with DVD players and beach towels and chairs. What's more, resort guests are granted access to the Nantucket Club (located on-site), which houses a gym and spa and offers yoga and fitness classes.

    Free WiFi

    When it comes to this hotel, guests say its excellent waterfront location and elegant decor set it apart from nearby properties. And once you step foot in the Boston Harbor Hotel at Rowes Wharf, you'll see why. The lobby is decked out in marble and vintage chandeliers, while guest rooms overlook the city's beloved harbor. Accommodations feature flat-screen Smart TVs, complimentary internet access, marble bathrooms and rainfall showers. However, what keeps guests coming back to this impressive (albeit pricey) hotel is the friendliness of its staff. Some even say the Boston Harbor Hotel offers the best customer service in the area, and visitors particularly highlight the employees' professionalism and warmth. Plus, you'll have access to top-rated eats at on-site dining venues Meritage and Rowes Wharf Sea Grille. What's more, members of the iPrefer program can earn or use points when bedding down here.

    This hotel lives up to its five-star reputation. Recent guests describe the hotel as spectacular, comfortable and well-situated. Located adjacent to the convention center and just two blocks south of Newbury Street (not to mention less than a mile east of Fenway Park), the Mandarin Oriental hotel ranks high on almost every luxury seeker's list thanks to its 16,000-square-foot spa, incredible food at Bar Boulud and spacious guest rooms. Each of the property's elegant accommodations displays art deco accents and extravagant touches, such as luxe linens, marble bathrooms with separate soaking tubs and walk-in showers and high definition LCD TVs.

    The Four Seasons Hotel Boston is known for catering to even the most discerning of luxury seekers.

But it's the overly accommodating hotel staff, the serene setting and the flavorful dishes served at The Bristol that keep visitors returning year after year. Plus, this Four Seasons property sits within walking distance of top sites like Boston Common and the Freedom Trail.

    The White Elephant has been a favorite of Nantucket's bluebloods since the 1920s. Exactly how ritzy is it? Well, visitors are welcome to dock their yachts out front, and the Brant Point Grill is considered a see-and-be-seen spot. But this local favorite is convenient for tourists too; it's half a mile from downtown Nantucket and an ideal hub for travelers visiting without a car. Guests rave about the first-rate service. And the rooms, suites and small cottages, complete with flat-screen TVs, free Wi-Fi access and outdoor patios or balconies, receive high praise from families and other large parties. The White Elephant is a seasonal property, open from mid-April to October and for limited dates in November and early December.

    In the small western Massachusetts town of Lenox, the Blantyre property rises elegantly from a green grass lawn. The property's Main House, cottages and Carriage House feature intricate moldings, magnificent fireplaces and rich colors on the walls.

But buyers beware: This regal extravagance doesn't come cheap. However, those who take part in Relais & Châteaux's exclusive Club 5C program are eligible for benefits, such as room upgrades.

    The Liberty, A Luxury Collection Hotel

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 895 reviewsTripAdvisor (895)
    Free WiFi

    Sure, location isn't this hotel's strong suit – it sits at the base of the Longfellow Bridge, which connects downtown Boston to Cambridge – but you don't come to The Liberty Hotel for convenience. This hotel is an attraction in itself since it was once a prison that housed notable "guests" like Malcolm X and the Boston Strangler. Today, the building oozes luxury, best exhibited in its waterfront views and multiple top-notch gourmet restaurants. Recent guests loved this hotel's unique feel and modern accents, and praised its terrific staff. Accommodations are furnished with minibars, flat-screen TVs and floor-to-ceiling windows. Some warn, though, that CLINK. can get noisy on the weekends so you should request a room away from the restaurant and bar for a peaceful night's sleep. What's more, because of The Liberty's ties, Marriott Bonvoy members can trade in points for perks at this hotel.

    The Fairmont Copley Plaza, Boston is anything but simple – it's decked out from head to toe in ornate decor reminiscent of the Renaissance period, complete with oak paneling, intricate ceilings, gilded trim and crystal chandeliers. And thanks to an urban address that's just blocks from the Boston Public Garden and the Newbury Street shopping area, you won't have to travel too far from the hotel to access some of Boston's beloved sites. Plus, recent guests say the tasty cuisine served at OAK Long Bar + Kitchen along with the accommodating staff and the modern accommodations, appointed with marble bathrooms, custom-designed artwork and calming blue and white shades, are reason enough to splurge on a stay here. What's more, members of the Le Club AccorHotels program can earn points and perks for their stay.

    Hold on to your hats, Red Sox fans: If you're in town for the big game, you'll find Hotel Commonwealth sits just blocks from your beloved Fenway Park. This stylish boutique hotel features spacious accommodations, equipped with bathrobes, Italian linens with down comforters and flat-screen TVs. Recent guests loved the luxe look and feel of the rooms, and said both the amenities and staff members are on par for a hotel of this caliber. At the end of the night, cap off your evening with an in-room spa treatment or – if you haven't filled up on peanuts and Cracker Jacks – a decadent gourmet meal at the Eastern Standard restaurant. For a quieter meal, check out Island Creek Oyster Bar, which boasts a bounty of seafood offerings. If you've brought your pup along for the ride, rest assured that he'll be well taken care of with grooming, walking and even doggie massage services.

    If you came to Boston to sightsee, then this isn't the best hotel for you; however, The Charles Hotel offers travelers laid-back luxury in picturesque Cambridge, Massachusetts. And considering its location, you can expect a taste of the Ivy League. The Charles Hotel's guest rooms are adorned with wooden furniture and custom quilts. And right outside your spacious digs are cafes and bars that are popular stomping grounds for young academics and future world leaders. Plus, you'll find intimate bars like Noir and Regattabar and fine dining establishments like Benedetto and Henrietta's Table at the hotel, too. Guests are consistently impressed with The Charles Hotel; some of them even refer to it as their home away from home. The only caveat: The steep price tag. You'll need a thick wallet to enjoy The Charles and all of its luxurious offerings.
