Encore

116 W. Newton St., Boston, Massachusetts, 02118, USA

Innkeepers Reinhold Mahler and David Miller, who are a retired architect and creative set designer, respectively, have pooled their creative energies into this South End lodging gem, proving that they know a thing or two about ambience. The stylish converted 19th-century town house boasts sun-filled rooms named for famous gay men in the arts (Sondheim, Albee, Bernstein, Robbins) that are spacious and spotless, and bedecked with modern Italian furnishings, brushed-steel and chrome touches, and brick accent walls. The Albee room has a private deck; all rooms have ultramodern baths with glossy tiles and stainless-steel sinks.
