Rooms are not huge at the Nine Zero, but they are quite beautiful. Style-wise, the place is sleek; all smooth lines with sudden bursts of vibrant color, think lime green and purple. All rooms have big windows and plush bedding with Frette linens.
Request corner rooms (ending in 05) or Skyline View Rooms for the best city and river views.
Bathrooms aren't huge either, but they do have nice showers, Atelier Bloem amenities, and soft bathrobe.
The lobby at the Nine Zero is very attractive, with rich jewel-toned furniture and plenty of comfortable spots to grab a seat.
While there is no spa on-site, the Nine Zero does have in-room massages and spa treatments.
There is a 24-hour fitness center on-site, however it is quite small. The hotel does have an in-house yoga channel, and bicycles for guests to borrow.
Forget your yoga mat? No problem; each room has Kimpton branded Gaiam yoga mats for guests to use.
The Highball Lounge is open for breakfast, and serves a small menu for dinner. And while there is 24-hour room service, chances are you'll want to head off-site to grab a full meal. There is also complimentary coffee and tea every morning on the second floor lounge.
The in-house vintage cocktail spot, Highball Lounge, is a popular bar that serves small bites. It sometimes gets buzzing at night with a DJ, and there's also lots of games, like Jenga and Hungry Hungry Hippos. The Lounge is closed on Mondays.
YOU SHOULD KNOW If you'd like to skip the bar scene, there is a lobby wine tasting every evening from 5 to 6.
The Nine Zero is almost directly across from the Park Street stop on the MBTA Green and Red Lines, and the Orange and Blue lines have stops that are nearby. A stellar location almost right across from Boston Common means most guests choose to sightsee on foot.
No. 9 Park (4-minute walk) is an acclaimed Barbara Lynch restaurant just up the street from the Nine Zero. Mooo.... (3-minute walk) is a ritzy steakhouse at the top of Beacon Hill located in the XV Beacon Hotel. For more casual meals, there's plenty of options in nearby Downtown Crossing.
Right next door to the Nine Zero is the Beantown Pub (1-minute walk) a classic watering hole with great bar food. Yvonne's (4-minute walk) is an uber-hip bar and lounge that gets packed pretty earlier.
WHY WE LIKE IT
The Nine Zero is extremely pet-friendly, and is one of the only area hotel that allows dogs of any size. Also, if you drive a hybrid vehicle, you will get a discount on valet parking.
