This sophisticated Boston neighborhood may be one of the most elite and beautiful places to stay on a visit. Chock full of iconic hotels and boutique accommodations, travelers will want for nothing whether in town for business meetings, sightseeing or enjoying family time.

Not to mention, besides the charming residential areas there are attractions within a few minutes of most hotels. Visit breathtaking churches, have a shopping spree on Newbury Street or simply stroll through some of the vibrant plazas. Back Bay is the place to experience some of Boston’s best assets, including both entertainment and top accommodations.
Sights and sounds
With some of the most scenic urban landscapes in the city, the Back Bay offers travelers a chance to soak in their surroundings. Head straight for Copley Square to see the Boston Marathon Finish line, or pop into the Boson Public Library for a peek at some priceless books on display. Follow Newbury Street to discover all the latest fashions, or have a relaxing afternoon in one of the restaurants on Boylston Street. All of these points of interest and more are easily reached by most hotels in the Back Bay, either by walking, subway or car. Other nearby landmarks are also within a few minutes reach, including Faneuil Hall, the harbor front and Fenway Park. Either take a map from the front desk or have one of the staff let you know where the best places are to roam from your accommodations in the Back Bay. Boston maybe be smaller than some other major hubs, but it makes for more convenient and easily accessible attractions anytime of year.
Service and style
The sleek business skyscrapers and the Victorian homes that give the Back Bay its interesting atmosphere also translates over to its accommodations. In this neighborhood travelers will find a wide selection of wonderful paces to lay their head. For instance, those who value things like valet parking and 24-hour concierge service can choose one of the luxe hotels that present 5-star service around the clock. For a more intimate experience, some guests may want to stay in smaller boutiques, either converted from fold brownstone homes or tucked between the more bustling major streets. These also provide top quality service, but may also boast a special Bostonian touch when it comes to things like local artwork in the lobby spaces and locally sourced furnishings. Either way, no guest leaves unhappy, as the staff that’s often born and raised right in the city are eager to show you what makes Boston a cut above the rest.
