Four Seasons Hotel Boston is like a Boston cream pie — it’s filled with all kinds of decadent goodness. Think kid-friendly amenities, state-of-the-art business spaces, a beautiful and trendy lounge, spacious rooms with flawless views and proud nods to early American history. In our opinion, the five best things about this Five-Star hotel are:
1. Boston Pride. Four Seasons Hotel Boston pays homage to Boston’s history in unique ways. Notice the doorknob on your guestroom, which is a replica of the gold knobs on the brownstone homes in historic Beacon Hill. Also take note of the oil paintings throughout the hotel, featuring some of Boston’s prominent figures. The Five-Star hotel takes pride in its views and its pool, and many of the guestrooms overlook the Boston Public Garden, the oldest botanical garden in America. And if you’re traveling on business, take a closer look at the meeting room names — all named after local figures (including the Benjamin, Winthrop and Stuart rooms).
2. Daily Fix. There’s nothing we love more than a strong cup of Joe to get the day started. And while there are no coffee pots in the rooms (a buzz kill, we know), complimentary coffee, tea, pastries and fruit are served in the lobby every morning from 5 to 8:30 a.m. on weekdays, and from 5 to 10:30 a.m. on weekends (buzz saved).
3. Business Savvy. While Four Seasons Boston doesn’t offer free Internet access in your room, you can head down to the business center 24/7 for free Wi-Fi access and free black-and-white and color copies. You can also dodge the airport chaos by checking in for your flight from one of the airport kiosks located in the hotel business center, at no extra charge.
4. Stay Healthy. With the gym at Four Seasons Boston, you can keep up with your usual fitness routine, or get inspired to create one. The gym is open 24 hours a day with the use of your keycard, and the locker rooms and pool are open from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily. The locker rooms offer a steam and sauna area, and the pool, while not very big, features amazing views of the Boston Public Garden. There is also a whirlpool in the pool area, and you can order food and drink to feed your appetite after a swim or workout.
5. Lounge Around. The Bristol Lounge at Four Seasons Boston is commonly known around the city as “Boston’s living room.” This restaurant and bar, the only bar in the hotel, is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and features a large fireplace and some of the best people-watching in Boston. The restaurant’s floor-to-ceiling windows look out to the Boston Public Garden and busy Boylston Street. On any given day you might spot a celeb sitting inside the Lounge, taking time out from filming around the city.
