The 19 Best Hotels in Boston

Boston has long hung its tri-cornered hat on its historic sites and old-world architecture, but its renowned universities and tech companies have transformed it into one of the world’s leading innovation hubs. Likewise, some of Boston’s best hotels have taken old historic buildings and turned them into something entirely new.

The Revolution Hotel

Book with our partner Hotels.com
In Boston’s hip South End neighborhood, The Revolution Hotel on Berkeley Street brings modern design to an early-20th-century YWCA building. You can sip a coffee in the lobby café – adorned with a mural of famous Boston residents from John F Kennedy to Martin Luther King Jr – while browsing a shelf of books by Boston-area authors. Downstairs, you’ll find a gym and a co-working space that features Massachusetts microbrews on tap. Rooms are small – some with the option of shared bathrooms – but all space is efficiently used as part of the hotel’s mission to keep rates reasonable. Across the street, the hotel also offers loft rooms with built-in kitchenettes. In the courtyard, a new restaurant will open in fall 2019 from the culinary team behind local hotspot The Beehive.

As a ’60s-era motel retrofitted with a rock-’n’-roll theme, The Verb checks a lot of hipster boxes. This 93-room hotel features record players in the guest rooms, a hip Japanese izakaya in the lobby and a mid-century bus parked out front, tailor-made for Instagram. Inside, the vibe is a mix of LA mid-century modern with a touch of swinging London. However, located just a long fly ball from Fenway Park, it’s also distinctly Boston, paying homage to some of the city’s greatest bands and music venues. A heated outdoor pool makes The Verb a gem for summer visits.

YOTEL Boston, in the city’s tech-centric Seaport, is trying to bring a “Moneyball” approach to hotels. It offers tiny rooms (or “cabins”) and minimizes the typical hotel bells and whistles to keep prices relatively low. It believes that people would rather spend time outside their hotel room, either at YOTEL’s excellent rooftop bar or out exploring the local sites such as the Institute of Contemporary Art and Trillium Brewing Company. By offering trendy but small rooms with modern touches such as fast Wi-Fi and TVs that connect to your mobile device, YOTEL is a compelling option for more tech-savvy travelers.

The building itself is half old-world architecture, half modern and all renovated interior. The resident Bar Mercado on the ground floor offers artisan cocktails and convenient fine dining including steak tartar, grilled octopus and flatbreads such as Funky Fungi and Fig and Pig. The line has also partnered with Sofar Sounds to offer live local concerts at their various properties.

The Lenox turns on the Boston charm from the moment you walk in off busy Boylston Street.

The Omni Parker House Hotel has an antique, Boston Brahmin vibe, which could be great if you’re into Boston’s history. JFK proposed to Jackie here. Ho Chi Minh (yes, that Ho Chi Minh) was a pastry chef here, and Malcolm X was a busboy at the restaurant. The classic hotel lobby is the main draw here. The rooms are small, but for a hotel over 150 years old, what do you expect?

Just down the HarborWalk from the InterContinental is the classy Boston Harbor Hotel. The vibe is decidedly more old school than that of its neighbor, with a more antique Boston feel. But the harbor views are what people pay for here, and they are spectacular. In the summer, the hotel plays free, film-buff-approved movies right on the patio on the water. It’s a cool way to take in some fresh ocean air without feeling bad about looking at screens.
