Fodor's Review

One of the newer players on the Boston scene, the 114-room Ames is all New England modernity. Previously owned by the Morgans Hotel Group, the Ames was bought by R.I.-based StepStone Hospitality in 2013. Foregoing the region's typical brocade and earth-tone interiors for something a bit more sleek, über-designer David Rockwell infused the rooms with sink-into white bedding, white marble, and light oak floors, iPod docks, and rain showerheads. Purists, don't worry, he also nodded to the 19th-century building's past with a sprinkling of Federal-style furniture. There are Molton Brown products in the bathroom (perched on a white sink, natch) and plasma HDTVs in the bedrooms; and for the visiting family, a one-bedroom apartment on the ninth floor, where guests have included everyone from Madonna to Shaq. The first-floor restaurant, King St. Tavern, boasts a lovely patio.
