For more than half a century, gracious service and time-honored elegance have combined to make The Ritz-Carlton a Boston tradition. From its magnificent Grand Ballroom, to its exclusive Back Bay location, to its highly professional 400-person staff, this hotel sets the standard by which excellence is measured.
Attention to detail shows in the gold service, genuine Irish linen, hand polished brass, white-gloved elevator operators, and fresh flowers everywhere. On weekdays, the hotel provides complimentary chauffeured limousine service to guests with appointments in the financial district or other areas of the city.
The large guest rooms are furnished in classic French provincial style accented with imported fabrics and distinctive works of art. Fluffy robes hang in baths of Vermont marble with porcelain fixtures and oversized tubs. The Presidential Suite on the seventh floor has full-height windows overlooking historic Beacon Hill.
A delightful meal in The Dining Room, with its expansive view of Boston's Public Garden, might begin with caviar, followed by poached salmon with lobster sauce, then a pear sorbet; as an entree, a rack of lamb with vegetables; and for a sweet conclusion, a sky-high chocolate souffle. The wine cellar contains 10,000 bottles--you will undoubtedly find one you like.
Tea is served daily in the Lounge, and after-dinner cigars and cognac are a nightly ritual. The clublike Bar, with its glowing fireplace and rich warm panelling, is a Boston favorite.
