Best Lodging in Greater Boston | 2013 Editors' Choice Awards
Looking to rest your head in Beantown? We’ve got you covered! Check out our picks for the best lodging in Greater Boston for 2013.
BEST BEACON HILL B&B
JOHN JEFFRIES HOUSE, Boston
Most rooms in this 46-room B&B offer kitchenettes for frugal travelers, yet the reproduction antique decor suggests Victorian elegance instead of modern, utilitarian economy. Rates: from $150, including continental breakfast. 14 David G. Mugar Way. 617-367-1866; johnjeffrieshouse.com
BEST NAUTICAL LODGING
BOSTON YACHT HAVEN, Boston
Located at the marina next to the New England Aquarium, this luxury lodging offers harbor views, spacious suites decorated in nautical style, and a host of shared amenities, including a pool table and an exercise room. Suites include kitchen appliances. Rates: from $300. 87 Commercial Wharf. 617-367-5050; thebostonyachthaven.com
BEST URBAN CAMPING
PEDDOCKS ISLAND, Boston
Turkic nomads from the Central Asian steppes probably never pitched camp on the Boston Harbor Islands, but their signature structure–the yurt–is available on Peddocks Island, which has potable water (but no showers) and ruins of Fort Andrews. Yurts: $40. Tent sites: from $6 per person. 617-223-8666 (ranger hotline); bostonharborislands.org/permits-reservations
BEST THEATRE-DISTRICT HOTEL
REVERE HOTEL BOSTON COMMON, Boston
It took some inventive contemporary styling to reconfigure a conventional Radisson into a chic boutique hotel, but the Revere rose to the challenge. Rooms are surprisingly spacious; the smallest is the size of a South End studio. Bonus: the green-glowing Emerald Lounge, an icon in local cocktail culture. Rates: from $240. 200 Stuart St. 617-482-1800; reverehotel.com
