Inn@St. Botolph

99 St. Botolph St., Boston, Massachusetts, 02116, USA

The posh yet homey 16-room Inn@St. Botolph follows a groundbreaking new hotel model—no front desk, no restaurant, and no valet (there is, however, an office on-site that is staffed 24/7). Guests can book and pay online, eliminating the need for agonizingly slow check-ins or long lines. Each room feels like the chicest city apartment you never had, decorated in black, white, and chocolate tones by local design luminaries. The four-poster beds are heavenly. Every room also comes with a full kitchen, a fireplace (but not in the studios), Frette robes, and a gigantic flat-screen TV. Set on a quiet residential street lined with flowering trees and brownstones, the inn is a short walk from the South End, Copley Square, and Back Bay. Best of all, for all the at-home-style luxury you get, you'll pay half of what you would at a nearby hotel. Just remember to book early. The Inn@St. Botolph fills up fast with fashionable clients who know how to spot a hot deal.
