The Lenox

The Lenox has become one of a few classic boutique hotels in Boston. Built in the beginning of the 20th Century, it has a traditional old school style, but with plenty of comfort. Upon entry your senses will be greeted with a wonderful aroma, which shall stay with you as you walk along the common areas. On our last visit several candles and similar products for sale were on display on shelves around the lobby. The dimly lit lobby is ornately decorated, with marble flooring, crystal chandeliers and sophisticated wall paper. The comfortable seating area by the fireplace is most inviting for winter evenings. Well known and in a privileged location, the Lenox is a few blocks from the charming Newbury Street, where you find great cafes, restaurants, brand chain and independent shops. A 15 minute walk will take you to some important Boston sights, such as the picturesque neighborhood of Beacon Hill or the city’s largest park Boston Common, a central place from which to reach many other attractions. The rooms are spacious, in general, with detailed carpets, very comfortable beds and lovely leather or velvet headboards. Some rooms can accommodate an extra bed, useful if travelling with family. The bathrooms are small yet functional. The hotel restaurant receives good reviews, but we recommend you try some of the many other excellent choices in town. The hotel bar attracts locals as well as hotel guests and it is worth trying some of their cocktails before you leave for dinner. The staff was incredibly helpful and attentive, addressing all our questions about sightseeing and booking reservations at various restaurants.
