Critic Reviews



In 2015, the hotel added 96 new rooms in a $50-million expansion that included a new terrace with a view (across the Mass Pike) of Fenway Park.


After several renovations from 2014 to 2016, the hotel’s look and feel successfully blends classic and contemporary designs.

Even more inviting than the surprisingly spacious guest rooms here are the book collections by local Boston authors filling each one.
