    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1606 reviewsTripAdvisor (1606)
    Free WiFi

    The Lenox Hotel
    Boston, MA
    4.5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 3663 reviewsTripAdvisor (3663)
    Free WiFi

    If you're willing to splurge, then The Lenox Hotel should be at the top of your lodging list. This extravagant hotel sits within walking distance of the high-end boutiques of Newbury Street. Beloved cultural attractions like the Museum of Fine Arts and Boston Common are also nearby. Recent guests say that the hotel's convenient location is one of its best features, although the elegant decor and friendly customer service also earn high praise. The only downside, according to some travelers, is the pricey fee for on-site parking. After a long day of exploration, unwind at City Table, the hotel's intimate dining venue, or at Sólás, the hotel's authentic Irish pub. Then retreat to your stylish accommodations, which boast high ceilings and plush linens (not to mention working fireplaces and stunning views overlooking the Charles River, in some rooms).

    W Boston
    Boston, MA
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1990 reviewsTripAdvisor (1990)

    Resting on the southern edge of Emerson College – just a few blocks south of the Boston Public Garden – the W Hotel grants visitors lodging in a convenient location. The W features an all-glass exterior with interiors featuring funky modern decor and simple-yet-stylish furnishings. The fanciful design extends to the accommodations, which feature modern accents, locally crafted artwork and high-end amenities like iPod docking stations, flat-screen TVs and Bliss Spa bath products. Most recent guests report a pleasant stay overall, however some do complain about the floor-to-ceiling windows' inability to drown out the noise from nearby nightclubs. Past visitors suggested booking a corner room for additional space. And because this hotel is part of the Marriott hotel family, Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and use points here. When you're ready to step outside your stylish digs, head to the W Lounge for casual bites and inventive cocktails.
