If shopping is your bag, get ready to fill a few up. Block after block is lined with Boston’s best boutiques and stores.

Located inside Taj Boston is a Chanel boutique, and a stroll down Newbury Street presents you with Valentino, Cole Haan, designer boutique shops and spas. Nearby, the shops at Prudential Center mall and Copley Place mall offer everything from GAP and Banana Republic to Michael Kors and Mont Blanc. Lord & Taylor, Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus are also near Four Seasons Hotel Boston. A little farther away, but still within walking distance, is the Downtown Crossing district, where you’ll find Macy’s and retail shops, along with Boston-specific kiosks for all of your touristy-souvenir needs. Our tip: Grab a few business cards from the front desk before you head out on your shopping excursion. Once you buy, leave the business card and your shopping bag with the store and ask them to drop off at Four Seasons Boston, or call the hotel for pick-up. This way, you can be light on your feet as you shop-till-you-drop.
