It’s an unusual place, with an uber-traditional Richardsonian Romanesque exterior and a stripped-down interior that contrasts invitingly with the comfy-cozy beds.

Period details – the building, Boston's first skyscraper, dates back to 1889 – are juxtaposed against sleek David Rockwell design.

Travel + Leisure

READ MORE 

Rockwell is known as an ultra-modern designer, but he's had some fun with history here: the bedside lighting riffs on whale-oil lamps of yore, and mirrors facing the elevators make use of an old theater trick to conjure the spooky illusion of a chandelier.
