A modern haven in Boston's Back Bay

136 Rooms / 12 Suites

Perhaps the most hotly anticipated real estate project to come to Boston in decades, the Five-Star Mandarin Oriental, Boston (which includes residences) opened in October 2008 to much fanfare. Its Back Bay location can’t be beat; the hotel is conveniently located adjacent to the Prudential Center, providing an ideal base for shopping year-round — during the city’s long winters, a private guest entrance will deliver you into the luxury mall without having to step foot outside. On sunnier days, Boylston and Newbury streets provide plenty of outdoor shopping and dining opportunities.

The experience of Mandarin Oriental, Boston begins in the spacious lobby, which was designed with local granite and artwork, a traditional New England color scheme and the principles of feng shui — all elements are represented and the front door aligns with the Charles River. The lobby’s long, gas fireplace is a wonderful place to relax surrounded by fresh flower arrangements, soothing music and personable staff ready to create a quiet respite within the busy city hotel.

The 148 chic guest rooms and suites feature modern décor in a soothing, natural palette, and their spacious floor plans leave plenty of room to stash those shopping bags. Be sure to spend some time in The Spa at the Mandarin Oriental, Boston. The 16,000-square-foot Five-Star spa features a vitality pool and a state-of-the-art Kinesis wall, and recently pioneered the brand’s new Beauty by Mandarin Oriental treatments that harness electrical currents to rejuvenate your skin.
