Four Seasons Review

This Public Garden–facing spot keeps a surprisingly low profile in Boston—and that's OK by the jeans-clad millionaires and assorted business types who cluster in the glossy lobby or use the Mercedes courtesy car. Facing more and more competition from incoming luxury brands (Mandarin Oriental, Taj), the Four Seasons is holding its own. Upper-crust types nosh on excellent breakfast in the Bristol Lounge (try the Croissant French Toast or Crab Cake Benedict), and visiting celebs are still whisked to the 3,000-square-foot, $6,900-per-night Presidential Suite. Lovely guest rooms boast black-and-cream toile decor with gold and lemon accents, large bay windows, and oversize work areas. Luxury amenities include DVD players, 42-inch plasma TVs, and L'Occitane toiletries. (Rumor has it even celebrities steal the soaps.) If you spring for a basic city-view room, you can still enjoy views of the park from the pool and whirlpool on the 8th floor. The 24/7 "e Center" off the lobby has touch-screen computers, printers, faxes, and a copy machine. Check the website for fantastic winter-weekend deals.

    Fantastic staff make for a great hotel

    Decor isn't exactly full of character but the fantastic staff and service, and the excellent room, helped make my stay there great.
