Boston is a wonderful city to visit all year round. However, a favorite time to travel and explore the city and its surrounding areas is autumn. The crisp, cool weather is ideal for discovering the city’s walking trails, and the vivid colors of the New England fall foliage enhance the beauty of your travels. As well, the return of the university students to the nearby colleges adds a festive and bustling tone of the city’s streets.
The best time to visit Four Seasons Hotel Boston depends only on your seasonal preference; the hotel is a delight any time of year. Room rates are generally higher in summer during the peak travel months, but this is also when Boston is at its best with outdoor activities for any age. Families typically have more flexibility, since the kids are out of school, and visiting historical landmarks is easy when the temperatures are bearable. That being said, if you don’t mind the cold, you may want to consider a getaway to the hotel in December — Four Seasons Boston turns magical during the winter months, especially around the holidays. The room rates are a little lower, since it’s off-season in Boston, and the hotel is decorated in perfect holiday fashion, with an enormous teddy bear tree and traditionally decorated wreathes; there’s nothing as magical as watching the snow fall over the Boston Public Garden in winter. The trees form shimmering icicles and the fresh laid snow along the park turns the space into a winter wonderland. Since many of the rooms at Four Seasons Hotel Boston have views of the Boston Public Garden, you’ll likely succumb to the romance of winter in the city.
