Vibe: Combining classic luxury with a decadent modern touch, and boasting one of Boston’s most sought after addresses, The Newbury Boston is a swank palace for generation Instagram; a gleeful jolt of eye candy combined with hyper comfort and impeccable service.
Area: Located in the city’s affluent Back Bay neighbourhood, adjacent to its leafy Public Garden.
The DNA: A cherished destination for more than 90 years, originally the first Ritz-Carlton Hotel, the recently renovated Newbury features calming interiors giving off a ‘homely’ vibe; multidisciplinary studio Champalimaud Design choosing tones of blues, greys, and creams alongside tactile materials for each of the rooms and suites. Handcrafted wood, herringbone accents, and marble touches further add a sense of lavish materiality and craftsmanship. Original artwork by illustrator, Veronica Lawlor, add a touch of the contemporary. Dining comes courtesy of Contessa, a glass-enclosed four-season rooftop restaurant serving Italian-inspired plates with sweeping views over the city. Designed by Ken Fulk, his effortlessly over-the-top approach and signature layered interiors match the 360 degree views of Boston, enjoyed through a series of sliding glass doors with retractable panels.
Suite-Me-Up: One of two presidential suites, The Corner House resembles a luxury residential home complete with a dining room and expansive living room overlooking Boston’s beloved Public Garden.
