While many of us struggled to reach our full potential in 2020, that can’t be said of the Mandarin Oriental, Boston. As we wandered from kitchen to living room and back again, this sophisticated luxury hotel in Back Bay, one of the Massachusetts capital’s most sought-after neighborhoods, snuck in a tremendous 15-million-dollar revamp.
Only four miles from Logan International Airport, the property is ideal for both business travelers and leisure guests. Boasting coveted AAA Five Diamond and Forbes Five-Star awards, this stylish yet relaxed retreat is located near major business corporations and universities, not to mention some breathtaking leisure attractions.
The multi-million-dollar renovation means the Mandarin Oriental, Boston is keeping up with the modern demands of travelers. Rooms feel welcoming and homely, while the addition of kitchenettes makes the suites an ideal hideaway for long-stay guests. And whether you’re planning a staycation or a whirlwind weekend in the city, resident robot concierge MOBI allows for super-speedy check-ins.
During the revamp, the hotel bolstered the award-winning Spa at Mandarin Boston’s recent Urban Wellness Retreats program by adding eleven treatment rooms to the facilities. The Rest and Restore and Motivate and Activate retreats are available for three or five nights, with an itinerary of classes, treatments, and prepared meals—perfect for anyone seeking some post-lockdown pampering.
When you do feel like venturing out, well-heeled Back Bay is the place to shop: Nearby Newbury Street is known as the Rodeo Drive of the East Coast, bursting with everything from beautiful bouquets at Winston Flowers to top-quality menswear at Ball and Buck, as well as exclusive children’s wear at Mulberry Road. At this rate, you may need to stay some time.
