Sexy, supper-club atmosphere oozes from this eight-year-old contemporary Kimpton Group hotel a block from North Station, making it a favorite of hipsters and hoopsters alike. Sip an ice-cold martini and nibble some tapas in the intimate Ruby Room; if there's a concert going on at the nearby TD Garden, you might party with rock stars. If the Celtics or the Bruins are in town, you'll get a lively, sports-loving crowd. Later, head upstairs to slip into your leopard-print
bathrobe and cushy socks. Rooms are done in black and taupe with funky checkerboard carpeting and colorful accents, including red suede chairs. All have plush linens, flat-screen TVs, and Gilchrist & Soames bath products. Free Wi-Fi is included.
