Why Stay At Taj Boston
In 2007, the Taj took over the historic 1927 building on the Boston Public Garden and brought the brand's assiduous service and luxe amenities (Molton Brown bath products, Frette linens) to Beantown.
There's no more central spot to lay your head in Boston than at the Taj, a 273-room classic property on the western edge of the Boston Public Garden, the first botanical garden in the United States. The location, also on the corner of Newbury Street, the city's main shopping drag, has been an important one for decades: before Taj opened its second U.S. outpost here in 2007, the 1927 brick and stone structure was the oldest Ritz-Carlton in the country. Rooms in a tawny palette of cream and gold are Federal-chic, with luxe amenities (Molton Brown bath products, 300-thread-count Frette linens), plus wingback chairs and marble baths. Public spaces are festooned with a $2 million collection of 19th-century European oil paintings. For traditional scenes of a different sort, a lunch of lobster cobb salad or steak and fries at the ground-floor café overlooking Newbury Street is a Boston must-do.
A champagne brunch buffet (rib roast, crab claws, sushi bar) is served on the rooftop at the Taj on Sundays from April to November ($138 for two).
Every pre-Christmas Saturday and Sunday in December, the hotel hosts a Teddy Bear Tea for kids with scones and storytelling by Mrs. Claus and an Elf. Bears are donated to Boston Children's Hospital at the end of the season. (Tea for two $57 per adult, $27 per child. Seatings at 11:30 and 3 p.m. Bring a bear for donation.)
