Wander around this quintessential neighborhood in the heart of Boston for high-end shops, restaurants, and the feeling of city bustle. Its most identifiable skyscrapers, the Prudential Center and John Hancock Tower, are highlights of the city skyline. Visit Newbury street to explore unique and trendy boutiques – as well as every other kind of store imaginable – all housed in beautiful brownstone buildings. In nice weather, restaurant patio seating is packed with Bostonians and tourists alike soaking up the sunshine and enjoying the food. Commonwealth Ave offers a beautiful stroll down residential tree-lined streets. Keep walking towards the Charles River and enjoy a beautiful view by the water. In warmer months, people run and bike on paths running along the esplanade, and sail and kayak on the Charles River. Boylston street, also full of shops, bars, and restaurants, is the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Head towards Copley Square and check out the Boston Public Library, which is particularly beautiful from the Dartmouth street entrance.
My husband and I spent about an hour in the library. It has massive stone sculptures, wall murals of historic events and amazing mozaics and plaster castings on the ceilings. It seems to be equally popular with tourists and students alike.
We've been to the Charles River Esplanade many times. The 4th of July Concert is a must if your visiting Boston. Bring plenty of sunscreen - bring your lunch and blanket and enjoy the concert and fireworks. Be sure and take public transit, no parking at the Esplanade.
If you love history and are really into old buildings with intricate architecture make sure you stop by just to see it. Copley Square has nice little places to walk to. Very relaxing to go during spring and summer
We have visited SRV twice now - once on New Year's Eve and the other for an early Valentine's Day celebration. Both times we have sat at the bar and ordered a few small plates and some drinks. Everything we have had is absolutely delicious! Tiramisu was to die for. Service was excellent even on a busy night like NYE....
Mistral is a really good restaurant.
The restaurant looks very traditional - a bit dull to tell the truth.
The food, however is amazing.
We shared 4 dishes: Beef Carpaccio, Fois gras with duck, a very crisp pizza, and finally a risotto with crabs.
Everything was top quality and we had a wonderful evening.
We can recommend Mistral to anybody...

It's also a fun place for a celebration. Great staff. Chrissy was our server and was genuinely so nice. We all enjoyed it and...
Sorellina has not disappointed us. We came here for birthday dinner and everything was superb. From service, drinks, food and ambience. Nothing on the menu is a bad pick. Even split pasta apps were decent portion. Not cheap, but sooo worth it!
The Lenox Hotel is a wonderful place to stay in the Heart of Boston. The staff was extremely pleasant and helpful. The rooms were exquisitely decorated and well maintained. If you left an item at home, the front desk had just about anything you would need. This will be the place we stay for all future visits to Boston! Thank...
Location was great and within walking distance to the convention center. Staff was friendly and helpful. Rooms were clean and quiet for being in a city. Pretty much right in the heart of Boston so it was really nice to have a lot nearby.
The hotel has a very nice ambience and very friendly and helpful staff.
You feel really good here! In-room dining is quick and fresh and hot when it arrives!
The location on Boylston Street is not only great if you come for the Marathon but its also located in a perfect area for shopping or strolling down the beautiful streets...

I traveled to Boston at the end of March and stayed at the Loew's Boston. I LOVED this hotel. I have read some of the other reviews and found them interesting but not in line with my experience at all. I was greeted at the door each and every time I came to the hotel. My luggage was carried up...
