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.
Newbury Street is well worth a visit if you’re in Boston. It has many shops, cafe’s and history. We found a lot of lovely cafes on Newbury Street serving a variety of lovely cakes, cupcakes and coffees. Also a lot of shops which we spent time browsing.

After numerous trips to Boston, we finally went to Mapparium. We walked in and were able to buy a timed ticket for the next tour at 10:20 on a weekday. The tour takes 20 minutes and includes the church, if you’re interested. We thoroughly enjoyed our time “in the globe”! It’s a different perspective and the way it plays with...
Had an enjoyable dinner in lovely surroundings but left with the impression of quantity over finesse. My crab in pasta starter was really nice, about 8 bites of fine dining. This was followed by half a duck placed on top of a huge pile of nice risotto. Some might love that but not for us.
An interesting menu, including some genuine Venetian dishes. The duck pate starter was superb ... very unusual ... I liked it so much I may even try making it at home! (What’s the top layer?!)
Glad we booked as, although it is quite sizeable, it was very busy. The service was efficient and pleasant.
Great dinner ! Staying at hotel across the street Boston Park Plaza & shocked our
Concierge did not recommend ?
Never leave without reading my trip advisor ! Thank you fellow travelers
SO happy we found this wonderful restaurant
The service was wonderful food fantastic
Could not ask for more 😊
While in Boston, we really wanted to have a New England Clam Chowder and Seafood. Lucky we were in the right town for both ! The rave reviews on tripadvisor and menu at Saltie Girl drew us in! The restaurant is small, it’s mainly a bar area and a few booths and I don’t believe they take reservation so you...
You know you're in a great restaurant when your waiter says, "no problem, we can do that!" when you want to change a dish up a little from what's on the menu. Comfortable atmosphere, attentive staff, nice wines, fantastic food. Bonus that we were seated with a view of the TV in the bar to keep an eye on the...
We loved the Lenox Hotel. We were upgraded to a large corner room overlooking the finish line for the Boston Marathon on the 9th floor. The room was excellent. Everything in this hotel is top-notch. We ate dinner in the bar and the food and service was great. Best pear martini ever!! This is the only place I think I'd...
excellent stay, great room and services, in addition to the perfect location.
In particular, we loved their hospitality, and the receptionist, Ms. Sidney, was so kind that she supported/helped all of our needs.
Stayed 2 nights at the Courtyard Copley Square. I probably will look for another hotel next time I’m in Boston. I’m ok with the small room and dated bathroom, but the tv remote was annoying and the wifi wasn’t good. Also, I was disappointed there wasn’t a restaurant on premises other than for breakfast. A special shout out to Megan...
Absolutely the perfect location for a few days in Boston.
Nice comfortable hotel with lovely staff as well, but made by the location. Didn't eat there with so many great restaurants within a few blocks.
Very nice service at the gold lounge with very substantial hot breakfast and hor d’ourves in the evening that was enough to make a dinner out of one night. Location is very central for exploring Boston and hotel is small enough that the lounge was not crowded. It is a older hotel so it has its quirks but housekeeping does...
