The luxurious Taj Boston Hotel in the fashionable Back Bay neighborhood occupies the city's most perfect location. Overlooking Boston's breath-taking Public Garden on one side, the designer boutiques along Newbury Street on another side, and the trees and statuary of Commonwealth Mall on a third side, the Taj offers spectacular views and total convenience to every part of the city.
The Taj occupies an elegant 1927 Regency-Art Deco style building that Boston's famed Ritz-Carlton Hotel (now relocated to the other side of Boston Common) used to call "home." Brilliant copper flashing highlights the building's classic lines, and light pours through the huge floor-to-ceiling windows into the public spaces on the first floor. You'll enjoy the Taj's collection of fine art and antiques throughout the hotel.
Taj Boston offers 273 rooms, including 45 suites, filled with luxurious furnishings and linens, plush robes for guests, and creamy marble bathrooms.
But that's not all. In some of the suites, you'll find the ultimate luxury: wood-burning fireplaces. A "fireplace butler" helps ensure that you enjoy the perfect fire.
The Taj offers a number of special events throughout the year, such as occasional children's events, periodic "Bollywood Nights" featuring incredibly delicious Indian food and dancing, and other activities.
Impeccable service ensures that you'll have a comfortable and convenient visit. If, for example, you need to go to Boston's Financial District on the other side of Boston Common and you don't want to walk, the hotel will whisk you over in its complementary car service.
Two beloved traditions make the Taj locally famous: drinks in the legendary Taj Bar, and Afternoon Tea in the Lounge. If you're visiting Boston, whether or not you stay at the Taj, you may want to enjoy these special activities as well.
The tall windows of the Bar look out over the Public Garden. With a fire crackling in the huge fireplace, perhaps a pianist or jazz trio playing requests softly in the background, and one of the Bar's famed drinks in front of you as you sit at a table in front of a window and gaze out at the Garden, it's the perfect setting to enjoy conversation with a compatible companion or perhaps just the pleasure of your own thoughts.
Afternoon Tea in the Lounge is another special treat, one that friends enjoy together, travelers enjoy alone, and mothers and daughters weave into a tradition. The Lounge is like an elegant drawing room, overlooking Newbury Street. Fine china, silver tea services, and top quality tea add to the ambiance. Other alternatives such as port or champagne plus tasty teacakes and other goodies enhance the experience.
Taj Boston also has a quite nice Cafe - great place for breakfast, brunch, or other meals. You can look out onto Newbury Street as you eat and plan the perfect day in Boston.
