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.
Our last day in Boston turned rainy and we didn't have time for other activities. We stopped in to get out of a downpour and were pleasantly surprised. We ended up spending 90 minutes looking around and sitting in the beautiful courtyard (which is covered).
We visited Newbury Street with the purpose of going to one specific store. The area is full of beautiful old buildings, including the Church of the Covenant - a nice surprise in the middle of the high end shopping district. The church is full of Tiffany stained glass windows and is absolutely breath taking. If you're looking for brands such...

"Moderate priced, good wine, pastas and interesting small plates."
reviewed yesterday by barry p
A lovely find! Moderate priced, good wine, pastas and interesting small plates. The wine list is small but brilliantly selected and complements a restaurant specializing in their tapas and full-sized plates. The excellent gem salad had great fresh, wonderful greens; the chickpea polenta was superb, and many of the small 2-bite chicchetti were excellent. The pastas were good but the...
Mistral to me was more an experience than a meal. I am a big time foodie. When I have a great meal and great conversation I am on holiday. I picked 8 of the nicest restaurants in Boston and this was bar far the best. It will be a hair loud but the food is worth the distraction. I highly...
We had a rather large group booked in one of their private rooms - like 40-50 people - and they didn't miss a beat. Even the menu was truly decadent with lobster tails and beef filets on offer on a set menu!! Everything was executed perfectly and the service was truly attentive which isn't always easy for larger groups. It...
I was skeptical about ordering spring rolls at a steakhouse but I’m glad we did.
We were a party of 4 and we tried the spring roll sampler, which was just about right as the appetiser.
The house red was inexpensive and went well with my ribeye.
Oh don’t forget their broccoli - it has a nice bitterness to it...
This is our 3rd time visiting this wonderful Italian restaurant for dinner. Service, location and ambience are great and the food quality is superb. Kudos to Chef Marga Rafucci and her excellent team. We will continue visiting. Highly recommend also for special occasions or a romantic meal.

If the show "Cheers" would have been about a hotel, it would have been about the Lenox. The staff is amazing, the little extras (like lobby cookies and bananas), and there is a little less guilt in everything you do there, because Lenox is one of the most environmentally responsible hotels I've ever stayed in....
We booked this hotel a year in advance in high anticipation of our trip. Normally I stay at the Four Seasons but I wanted to try a different location this time around. For the rate ($795/night without taxes), we expected so much more. We had a 5th floor room that was comfortable, but had no real view whatsoever. Service was...
Awesome location, great staff, everyone cheerful and helpful.
Girls at the desk were nice and patient with numerous tourist questions !

Boston has a new sherif in town in fact the entire building a former police headquarters, replete with historically intact details, high ceilings, Bostonian bold exterior architecture and a restaurant called Precint. What was truly amazing was the careful blending of the old and new, and the stately way the lobby and their version of a living room blended with...
Really enjoyed our stay here, Norman the doorman was a gentleman, he made us welcome every time we entered the hotel. The room was very spacious and clean. Well worth a visit, make sure to check out the outdoor pool it's amazing!!!!
