There’s an inevitably long list of reasons to book a room at the renowned Four Seasons Hotel Boston, from its location to the in-house amenities or simply the smiling staff that greet you each morning, not to mention the food, concierge and faultless style too.
This is a premier luxury central Boston hotel for sure, and it really is central; you’ll be opposite the Public Garden, near Boston Common, the Opera House and Newbury Street during your stay.
And, unusually for a Downtown property, up on the eighth floor lies a heated swimming pool, holistic spa, gym, Jacuzzi and sauna, none of which are to be underestimated during those biting winter afternoons, and the poolside views there are worth noting too.
Yes, the Four Seasons Group are of course known the world over for their handpicked locations, though also their naturally attentive service and high standard of everything from décor to dining. At the Four Seasons Hotel Boston then, you find that all of this remains reassuringly true. Beginning with interior design, the hotel’s lobby is one of polished marble floors and elaborate glass light fittings, while the onsite Bristol Bar offers mahogany, leather-topped furniture, vintage whisky bottles and authentic speakeasy styling that set the Boston scene to a tee. Head down the hall and into your guest room or suite however and it’s all replaced by soft, cushiony carpets, contemporary artworks, muted tones and lots of light, courtesy of huge panoramic windows in each.
Those guestrooms and suites certainly feel homelier than you may expect, though also refined. No corner is unnecessarily cluttered; the larger suites being particularly impressive with their separate lounge areas, cosy sofas, a dining room in some and kitchenette in others. You’ll also be treated to various views of Boston from your hotel room here, either the city itself or delightful Public Garden, though a special mention must also be made of The Bristol, Four Seasons’ own onsite eatery that is among the best fine dining restaurants in Boston, miss it at your peril!
Every cookie-making and suite at the Four Seasons Hotel Boston is a notably sophisticated space of floral-embroidered headboards, confidently neutral colour tones, marble-clad bathrooms and quality furnishings . In-room amenities are also of the highest standard, and include luxe walk-in ran showers, king-size beds, designer robes and slippers, a minibar, Wi-Fi and a large flat-screen TV as standard. Views from all the rooms and suites will be of either the city, Public Garden, the hotel’s eighth-floorgardens or courtyard. Then, as you move through the luxury levels and into the higher category suites, expect a separate living area, larger floorplans, a bathtub and in some a kitchenette, dining room and private hallway.
The Bristol Restaurant at Four Seasons Boston is quite simply a gastronomic delight, one of the finest restaurants in the city and a must for anyone who loves their fine food. Huge windows here capture views of the Public Garden outside, while within it’s all about elegance, soft lighting and ever so slightly understated furnishings that let the cuisine do any necessary talking. As such, seasonal menus change throughout the week, so Sunday brunch is different to midweek breakfast, for example. One thing that doesn’t alter however, is the simple fact that the Bristol Restaurant Boston epitomises five-star gastronomy of the highest order. Contemporary techniques, immaculate presentation, internationally-inspired dishes and paired wine all come together here in a harmony of organic, lovingly prepared vegetables, delicate sauces, irresistible flavour fusions and no shortage of variety either.
As inviting as any of the best bars in Boston, Four Seasons’ Bristol Bar is a place of cool music, comfy leather bar stools and cocktails, all creating an ambience akin to a high-society speakeasy of the 1950s. Vintage décor fits the classic martinis, whisky and champagne being served here, and if in need of some sustenance before exploring the bright lights of Boston, typically high standard Four Seasons fare is also on offer. Indeed, few lounge bars can boast a casual, small plates menu that includes regular favourites such as cognac-cured bacon burgers, pomegranate and mint salad, sesame-scented calamari or jumbo shrimp cocktail; to name just a few fine dining treats.
Activities and Entertainment
Onsite entertainment at the Four Seasons Boston is confined to the hotel’s lounge bar, though your location in the city to explore Boston’s main attractions could not be better. Situated in the Back Bay Neighbourhood opposite the wonderful Public Garden, you are within easy walking distance of Boston Common, the Theatre District and outlets of Newbury Street, Downtown’s best restaurants and bars, Boston Opera House plus a variety of museums all within a short taxi ride or subway from Arlington Station. Put simply, there’s no shortage of things to do in this iconic city and while staying at the Four Seasons Hotel Boston.
As you would expect from this prestigious property group, the Four Seasons Hotel Boston is remarkably well-equipped for such a city centre hotel. One stand-out feature is the eighth-floor indoor heated pool, a real luxury particularly if visiting Boston in winter. Elsewhere you’ll find a classy spa – in-room massage treatments are also available – a Jacuzzi, gym and sauna, while the concierge team here are effortlessly attentive too. They can arrange babysitting if travelling to the USA as a family, organise kids’ movies and even cookie-making classes, though the rest of the Four Seasons Boston does feel decidedly grown-up, particularly the hotel’s lounge bar and restaurant.
