Fodor's Review

One of the city's best small hotels is on posh Commonwealth Avenue, modeled after Paris's epic Champs Élysées, and it expertly merges the old blue-blood Boston aesthetic with modern flair (like zebra-print rugs mingling with crystal chandeliers); everyone from well-heeled Sox fans to traveling CEOs to tony college parents has noticed. The smallish rooms are smart, not stuffy, and feel a bit French country and a bit Soho chic. The majority of rooms are one- or two-bedroom suites; all have marble-topped bar areas and flat-panel TVs. In most rooms, there are Italian marble walk-in showers. Rooms ending in 02 have views of Commonwealth Avenue; those ending in 04 and 08 are larger corner rooms. Downstairs, the fine-dining Clio, helmed by chef Ken Oringer, garners rave reviews for its contemporary French-American cuisine. Not to be outdone, Oringer's next-door sashimi bar, Uni, also in the hotel, regularly plays host to Boston's gliteratti.
