FOR A SCENE TO SEE AND TO BE SEEN

The Newbury Boston

Everyone’s talking about Contessa, the upscale restaurant at this newly opened boutique hotel in the old Taj space, but the real story here is the rooms themselves. Created by famous international designer Alexandra Champalimaud, they offer luxury Byredo bath products, Frette bathrobes and linens, as well as exclusive access to the Library lounge for guests only, as well as stunning views of the city center. and the public garden.

FOR STUNNING VIEWS

Omni Boston Hotel at Seaport

It’s hard to beat the scenery of the Seaport’s latest addition, right in the middle of all the neighborhood has to offer. After you’ve had your fill of shopping, dining, and touring the latest ICA exhibitions, or tasting artisanal gin tonics and French fare at the on-site Coquette restaurant, soak up the floor-to-ceiling vistas of the harbor of Boston and the neighboring glass skyscrapers from the comfort of your king-size bed.

FOR SLEEPING

Mandarin Oriental, Boston

Guest quarters may look a little different after a $ 15 million facelift completed last year gave them a more comfortable and residential feel, but the Mandarin’s sprawling spa has, thankfully, remained essentially the same. The state’s only five-star Forbes retreat offers yoga and Pilates classes, relaxation areas filled with equipment, and 11 peaceful treatment rooms, including two couples’ suites, if your getaway is romantic.

TO STRETCH IN STYLE

The Langham, Boston

Unveiled this summer, the stunning up-to-the-post renovation of the Langham was big news, even more significant when you consider the complete overhaul of its Loft suites, luxurious two-level layouts spread over 550 square feet. Each has spectacular two-story windows, so even though the rooms are in the heart of the Financial District, they are flooded with natural light. Before heading out for the afternoon, savor family-style Italian cuisine at Grana, located in the Great Hall of the former Federal Reserve.
