    Boston, MA
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1212 reviewsTripAdvisor (1212)
    Free WiFi

    If you're looking for extravagance, then the XV Beacon can certainly oblige. This stunning hotel features mahogany paneling and vibrant red accents. Plus, its perch on the edge of Boston Common within walking distance of the Freedom Trail makes the XV Beacon a favorite among history lovers. Add the hotel's wide variety of amenities – which range from in-room massages to complimentary car service within the downtown Boston neighborhoods – and you'll see why recent guests said that a stay at this charming boutique is nothing short of phenomenal. Plus, the well-appointed accommodations are furnished with antique accents, 400-thread-count Frette linens, gas fireplaces and 42-inch flat-screen TVs, while the delectable entrees at restaurant Mooo.... (a steakhouse) earn rave reviews.

    Boston Harbor Hotel
    Boston, MA
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 2168 reviewsTripAdvisor (2168)
    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.

    Any visitor of this property will tell you how beautiful and impressive they find Wequassett Resort and Golf Club. Then they'll probably rave about renting a boat, putting on the greens, lounging poolside, or any of the many other activities available to resort guests. Perhaps a recounting of the tasty seafood dish they ate at Twenty-eight Atlantic will follow. Basically, this hotel gets kudos upon kudos from travelers and experts alike for its variety of amenities and elegant accommodations. Rooms and suites are appointed with spacious patios, gas fireplaces and flat-screen TVs. For most guests, these things make the perfect Cape Cod getaway.

    The Charles Hotel
    Cambridge, MA
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 2206 reviewsTripAdvisor (2206)
    Free WiFi

    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.

    The Colonnade Hotel, Boston
    Boston, MA
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 3656 reviewsTripAdvisor (3656)
    Free WiFi

    The Colonnade serves as an excellent option for travelers who want to avoid the late-night noise of downtown but don't want to sacrifice comfort and convenience. Located just minutes from shopping and dining areas as well as the Prudential Station T stop, this hotel grants easy access to all of Boston's favorite attractions but also offers respite from the hustle and bustle of the city. Recent guests particularly rave about the rooftop pool, the exquisite French fare served at Brasserie Jo and the simple yet elegant rooms. All accommodations feature modern decor with wooden furnishings, flat-screen TVs and Keurig coffee makers. But recent visitors say the very friendly and resourceful hotel staff is what made their stay truly memorable.

    Boston Park Plaza
    Boston, MA
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 3348 reviewsTripAdvisor (3348)
    Free WiFi

    Situated in the heart of downtown Boston, within walking distance of the Boston Public Garden, Boston Common and Newbury Street's high-end restaurants and shops, Boston Park Plaza is perfectly located for both business and leisure travelers. An iconic staple of the city's skyline for nearly a century, the hotel has attracted a well-heeled clientele for generations and underwent an extensive renovation in 2017. The updated guest rooms and suites boast crisp white decor and dark wood accents, plus perks like smart TVs and blackout shades. However, standard rooms only offer 150 square feet of space. For more room, consider upgrading to the Garden Suite or the Presidential Suite, which come with a full kitchen or bar. No matter which accommodation you choose, you'll have access to on-site facilities like 32 meeting and event spaces, a fitness center and a restaurant with fresh, Boston-inspired cuisine. Recent guests said the highlight of this hotel is its central location, though the professional customer service and clean rooms also received high praise. Keep in mind that because this property is a member of the Preferred Hotels & Resorts group, iPrefer Hotel Rewards members can accrue or use points when staying here.
