For a mid-size city on the wind-lashed Atlantic coast, Boston is a relatively small player when it comes to US travel. But those who visit find it packs a big punch: a rich history, some of the country’s grandest architecture and not forgetting world-renowned academic and cultural institutions, Boston has gathered a wealth of clout over its four centuries of – in American terms – ancient history. This history has evolved the city into a forward-thinking populace, pushing progressive causes, innovative planning and cutting-edge architecture. With a packed cultural calendar that includes a week-long celebration for Independence Day, there’s always something going on in Boston.
Immerse yourself in Boston’s history with a trip around the city’s iconic institutions: the esteemed Public Library, Harvard University, Fanueil Hall Marketplace and, of course, the Freedom Trail. Contemporary Boston is no less influential, drawing students as it does from all across the globe. Shedding its reputation as a bit of a fuddy-duddy, college town, Boston has embraced its preppy heritage with gusto and a recent explosion of film, television, music and the arts appearing on its already busy scene means Boston is establishing itself as a city with more prominence than ever before.
Loews Boston Back Bay
Dwarfed by some of the surrounding high rises, the Loew’s glows like a bijou beacon in the heart of historic Back Bay. Intimate themes pervade the hotel from its cosy, impeccably designed rooms to the exceptional, personalised service from the concierge who make it their mission to show you the best of Beantown. Occupying the site of the former Boston PD, the hotel boasts the aptly named Precinct restaurant and bar where you can enjoy delicious, locally sourced specialities or sample a selection of local craft beers.
The Fairmont Copley Plaza
One of the oldest hotels in one of America’s oldest cities, Copley Plaza has been a Boston landmark for over 100 years. Following a recent renovation and reimagining to celebrate its centenary, there’s never been a better time to visit. Step out across the public gardens and embark on the Freedom Trail, the best way to both orientate yourself and bone up on Boston’s pivotal role in US history. We always try to visit the OAK Long Bar and Kitchen for great American produce and a genuine Boston buzz.
