Just south of downtown, the W Boston on Stuart Street is the first and foremost way to enjoy the city’s bustling Theatre District, offering elegant amenities that include an on-site spa, posh restaurant-bar combo, plus an art gallery that features high-end works. Fall in love with every second of it as soon as you check in, looking forward to expansive views from wall-to-wall windows, or even comfier digs by upgrading to a suite, each one offering large living spaces, hardwood floors, and small dining room tables. Get through the region by taking advantage of local transportation as well, whether it’s the Orange Line on Washington Street or a shuttle pick-up perfect for getting to Logan Airport (5.6 miles) on-time and without hassle.
From upscale entertainment to down-to-earth eats, there’s plenty to do in the surrounding region. Start by exploring Chinatown for the afternoon, heading east on Kneeland for a look inside the Pao Arts Center, afterward walking north on Hudson to reach the iconic Chinatown Gate, surrounded by countless eateries ranging from the Chinese at Gourmet Dumpling House to frilly dim sum at Hei La Moon. For something more classic, head toward Boston Common instead, a huge park located just 2 blocks north of the W Hotel that’s home to the Boston Public Garden as well as historic memorials perfect for talking over a midnight show at Charles Playhouse, renowned for its long-running Blue Man Group shows among other acts.
