THE Newbury Boston at One Newbury Street, located in the premier shopping and dining neighbourhood of Boston’s Back Bay, is currently undergoing a transformative renovation and restoration. Originally opened in 1927 as one of the first Ritz-Carlton hotels in the US, this iconic Boston landmark will reopen in mid-2020. The property will be re-imagined with a thoughtful new floor plan, dramatic public spaces, 286 redesigned guestrooms (including 90 suites), stunning event spaces and new food and beverage experiences, including a rooftop restaurant and the restoration of the beloved Street Bar.
Residential in feel, each of The Newbury’s 286 guestrooms and suites will incorporate a calming colour palette and tactile materials. Rooms will be appointed with hand-selected, richly textured furnishings and original artwork, along with amenities exclusively curated for guests. The Newbury Boston will offer 16,000 square feet of dramatic and flexible event space which will be beautifully renovated and updated with modern functionality, providing an ideal setting for meetings and celebrations overlooking The Public Garden. In addition to the event space, the new food and beverage experience includes the restoration of The Street Bar and the addition of a Library Lounge, available exclusively to hotel guests. The seasonal rooftop space will be converted into a year-round restaurant, operated by Major Food Group, a leading hospitality and restaurant company.
Boston is already popular with the region as a medical destination: the city boasts some of the best hospitals and medical specialists in the world and The Newbury Boston is easily accessible to all.
Boston is also an academic centre and perfect for families visiting students at Harvard, MIT, Boston University or any of the 60+ colleges and universities in Greater Boston area.
The city also offers world-class shopping, with all the luxury brands available within steps of the hotel.
“We feel that the property will be quite popular with the Middle East. With 90 suites, we have the highest suite count in Boston and the suites easily connect with other guestrooms and suites to create two- to three-bedroom options,” a hotel representative tells us. “Most of our floors have between 12 to 15 suites and guestrooms, which make it easy for the hotel to accommodate larger family visits as well.”
