A gorgeous 5-star destination at the heart of Boston’s everything, The Ritz-Carlton on Avery Street offers just about all one could ask for. Home to an on-site salon-spa, intimate bistro, as well as a posh cocktail lounge, the stay makes unwinding easy, inside and out. Enjoy opulent rooms with colonial-style designs, or go all out with contemporary suites that feature park views, a fireplace, as well as modern living, dining, and kitchen areas. Business travelers should consider upgrading to a club room, gaining access to a posh hardwood lounge home to its own library, free grub, and evening drinks, not to mention complimentary Wi-Fi perfect for getting work done.
From across-the-street access to Boston Common to walking-distance to the Theatre District, the stay’s location offers prime real estate for sightseeing. Walk westward to enjoy downtown’s biggest park, taking in the historic merry-go-round as much as iconic monuments and statues, not to mention English-style landscaping sprawled across the 19th-century Boston Public Garden. Spend the afternoon shopping in Chinatown afterward, heading west on Boylston Street for a variety of shops & eateries, finally ending the walk along the Boston Tea Party Ships, a floating museum that rests along the iconic river that started it all. End the evening with classic entertainment, looking forward to renowned comedy acts and live music at The Wilbur before sitting down for an after-show dinner, choosing between German fare at Jacob Wirth Restaurant or savory Mongolian from The Q.
