This past weekend, while attending my sister’s wedding in the hotel, we had the pleasure of staying at The Lenox in Boston, Massachusetts. It’s an absolutely lovely boutique hotel located on the corner of Exeter and Boylston Street and a block from several Boston highlights (Copeley Square, shopping on Newbury Street), though given the events of the day we didn’t get much sightseeing done.
The service at the hotel was fantastic, which you should expect given the premium rates, but we were treated like royalty. Check in was a breeze, the staff was incredible, and anything and everything we wanted was provided. Traveling with an infant can be challenging but they provided a crib and even bath toys and stuffed animals for him to play with. It was the first time we’d ever been offered something like that at a hotel!
Our room was exactly the one picture above (that’s their photo) and it’s as spacious as it looks. I’d never stayed in a hotel room with it’s own chandelier before 🙂 so that was a nice touch. The fireplace doesn’t work (says so in big letters) but we didn’t bring any of our own firewood so that was OK. The only difference with our room is that instead of the large chair by the fireplace we had a crib.
There are two restaurants in the hotel – City Bar (which is mostly a bar) and City Table, where you can order food. We only had a drink in the City Bar but it was set up more like a lounge and provided a relaxing atmosphere. City Table was more restaurant-like with tables and was much louder.
The hotel is part of the Stash Hotel Rewards network, so if you’re all about the points, you can still earn points staying there even though it’s a more independent hotel.
