Description

This elegant hotel lies in Boston’s historic Beacon Hill, overlooking the Charles River and within walking distance of the independent cafes, boutiques and antique shops of the neighbourhood’s charming cobbled streets.

A new addition to the historic streets of Beacon Hill, The Whitney channels the grace and elegance of its surrounds but injects them with a dash of contemporary styling and modern amenities to create a city bolthole that is both stylishly modern and tastefully traditional. With just 65 rooms the hotel feels friendly and welcoming, with sociable public spaces and a picturesque courtyard garden.

The rooms and suites are undeniably elegant, with a nod to Art Deco design combined with contemporary, sleek lines and modern technologies. Frette linens and bathrobes, organic bath products and cloud-like mattresses create an indulgent retreat after a day of strolling Boston’s beautiful streets while large windows retain a connection to the buzz of the city yet cocoon you in the comfort of the room. Nespresso coffee machines, 55” smart TVs and minibars bring home comforts galore.

Featuring a contemporary take on classic Italian dishes, the hotel’s restaurant, Peregrine, is helmed by two of Boston’s favourite restaurateurs and draws inspiration from Sardinia, Sicily, Corsica and Catalonia in seasonally relevant dishes. Wine is selected from smaller producers, many which employ organic or biodynamic techniques and which perfectly complement the honest quality of the food. In-room dining is also provided by Peregrine. Access to a neighbouring fitness centre with state-of-the-art Hydrow machines and complimentary bike hire are on hand after the inevitable indulgence.

Boston is an eminently walkable city and from The Whitney you can head out into the cobbled streets of Beacon Hill, through tree-lined lanes filled with red brick townhouses that evoke the early days of the city’s prosperity. Stop for coffee and a moreish pastry at Tatte and stroll on towards the green lawns and tranquil ponds of the Public Gardens. Indulge in some retail therapy on nearby Newbury Street and trace the beginnings of the American Revolution as you walk the Freedom Trail.

With an enviable location in the beautiful neighbourhood of Beacon Hill, within easy reach of many of the key sights of Boston’s historic city, The Whitney is a supremely comfortable and upmarket boutique hotel which offers a convenient base from which to explore the city.
