Back Bay Hotel (formerly Jurys Hotel) features many of the same high-end amenities that you'll find at Boston luxury hotels - but at attractive mid-range rates.
Located near the southeast corner of the elegant Back Bay neighborhood, the hotel occupies an elegant 1925 Italian Renaissance Revival building once used as the Boston Police Headquarters.
With lots of Boston attractions such as the Theatre District as well as major office buildings nearby, Back Bay Hotel is in an ideal location whether you're here for business or leisure.
A $64 million preservation / renovation project completed just before this stately Boston Mass hotel opened in 2004 brought new life and and luxury touches to the landmark building.
Back Bay Hotel is part of Loews Hotels & Resorts.
Here are the top 3 reasons why you'll enjoy Back Bay Hotel:
- Central location: Walk across the Public Garden and Boston Common to Downtown and Beacon Hill, or enjoy Newbury Street shopping and sightseeing in Back Bay.
- Stylish comfort - Inviting rooms offer high-end features usually found in Boston luxury hotels. Plus gorgeous public spaces, like the seating area shown in the photo.
- The on-site Irish bar: After a long day of exploring Boston or negotiating business deals, reward yourself with a nice a pint or two at Cuffs, the hotel's Irish bar.
The hotel's 225 rooms and suites feature down pillows and comforters to help you enjoy a good night's sleep.
Granite and marble bathrooms feature heated towel racks (a wonderful luxury touch that you'll find in only a few Boston hotels, despite our nippy winters).
Frette bathrobes are another luxurious treat.
Rooms have high-speed wireless internet connections, flat screen TVs, and CD players.
The hotel's complementary business center is designed to meet the all needs of business travelers.
There's also a fitness center with excellent equipment.
You're also only three short blocks from the Public Gardens, where you can go for a swan boat ride on the lagoon in warm months, and Boston Common, where you can ice skate on Frog Pond in the winter. You're within easy walking distance of Downtown Boston, the Freedom Trail, Chinatown, and the Theatre District.
The Waterfront and North End are a bit farther, but still an easy walk.
Going west, you can walk to Fenway Park and catch a Red Sox game, or to the Museum of Fine Arts and Symphony Hall for some culture (or "cul-cha" if you want the Bostonian pronunciation). Go south, and you'll be in the South End, where you'll find more delicious chef-owned restaurants than you can count.
And almost right at your doorstep is Bay Village, Boston's most hidden neighborhood. Walk a couple of blocks east on Stuart Street and turn left onto Arlington Street. Walk 2-3 more blocks and turn left - doesn't matter which street - and enjoy the neighborhood's wonderful Federal and Art Deco architecture, tree-lined streets, and gas lamps.
If you're not already convinced that Back Bay Hotel has one of the best locations in the city, just wait until you're hungry and want to find a restaurant. Within a few blocks, you have your pick of Back Bay restaurants, South End restaurants, and Bay Village restaurants. Nirvana!
