Why we choose Mandarin Oriental Boston

With a prestigious Forbes Five-Star award and advantageous location, this Mandarin Oriental is off to a good start

  • The 16,000-square-foot spa is the only Five-Star Spa in Massachusetts
  • Coming Fall 2014: Bar Boulud! Chef Boulud’s first Boston restaurant will be a French-inspired bistro and wine bar
  • Study the exceptional vintages in M Bar’s custom-designed wine wall

Mandarin Oriental Boston is a stellar blend of New England charm and the brand’s trademark international style. It’s pretty easy to spot the chic Asian touches, but savvy guests can pick up East Coast influences in color palettes that reflect its seafaring tradition, as well as blond wood paneling representing its historic style. Décor? Check. Crazy-good amenities? Check. Now just check in.

What you need to know about the hotel

This city center hotel is one of the fresher faces of luxury in Boston, with ooh-la-la extras.

  • The posh Dynasty Suite includes tech-tastic Control Four—electronic panels throughout the suite for lighting, drapes, temperature, TV and music
  • Asana’s private Chef’s Table is located in a glass-enclosed room in the kitchen where the culinary team delivers a personalized menu
  • The Gemstone Vitality spa treatment is a massage that incorporates locally mined gems such as garnets, tourmalines and amethysts

Mandarin Oriental Boston stands out while blending in—meaning that while its distinctive limestone and marble façade is certainly striking, the architecture is reminiscent of the city’s famed brownstones. The 148 rooms and suites are spacious (averaging 500-plus square feet) and Art Deco modern, with upscale details like oversized bathrooms and walk-in closets.

The facilities are similarly noteworthy: A Forbes 5-star Spa and spa café with healthy plates located in the fourth floor; fitness options ranging from traditional equipment to innovative classes to a jogging/bicycle trail around the Charles River; and customized, professionally-guided to museums and gallery outings-including tours for kids-(a favorite for grandparents.)

Where is it and what's nearby

Boston’s historic Back Bay is home base for the hotel, with great shopping, dining and nightlife right around the corner.

  • One block away is Newbury Street, a tree-lined gem with upscale shops like Chanel and restaurants in regal old brownstones
  • The two-and-a-half-mile Freedom Trail takes walkers through 16 historic landmarks, including The Old Granary Burial Ground, where Boston’s most famous revolutionaries rest
  • The 130-year-old Arnold Arboretum, the world’s leading plant study center, displays 265 acres of trees, shrubs and flowers year round

Boston is an interesting mix of European influence and die-hard American flavor. Not surprisingly, the city responsible for the Boston Tea Party loves its history. Dive into it with visits to the Freedom Trail, Paul Revere House, Massachusetts State House and the USS Constitution. Culture is also big here. There’s the new Institute of Contemporary Art overlooking Boston Harbor, the 450,000-piece collection at the museum of Fine Art and of course music from the world-famous Boston Pops.

 The hotel enjoys a superb location on desirable, central Boylston Street, which puts most everything you want pretty well within reach. Even better: It’s attached to the Prudential Center, which houses some of the city’s premier businesses and boutiques.

How to enjoy Boston

Go visiting your neighbors in this city of neighborhoods. There’s Paul Revere’s house in North End and Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s house in Old Cambridge. Or you could take tea in Boston Harbor

  • See where The Scarlet Letter and Walden were published; the Old Corner Bookstore – today it is a jewelry store, but the building is still there
  • Lose yourself among the brick sidewalks and gas lamps of Beacon Hill, the former home of Louisa May Alcott, Oliver Wendell Homes and Robert Frost
  • Sample the After Hours program at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum to enjoy art, poetry or the bar; visit during the day to see Whistler, Rembrandt, Sargent, Botticelli and more

Words like ‘birthplace’, ‘America’s first’ and’ America’s oldest’ abound in this city of history and culture. Head to Lexington to stand on the place where the first shot was fired in the War of Independence. Browse the shelves of the country’s first public library. It’s not a museum; it is the Boston Public Library. Or grab a breath of fresh air at Boston Common, America’s oldest park.

And then, there’s Cambridge. Technically it’s another city, but really it is just a hop across the Charles River and is home to some of the world’s most renowned universities (Harvard and MIT) as well as one or two students. It’s also an excellent shopping destination with enough boutiques offering haute couture and off-the-rack to keep the most dedicated follower of fashion happy. Not to mention great funky world cuisine venues.
