Best of Boston

2011 Best Boutique Hotel

Nine Zero

While not entirely indie—it’s part of the Kimpton hotel group—Nine Zero is a singularly splendid place to lay your head. All rooms boast robes, European linens, and windows that open to let in the fresh air. But if you’re lucky enough to book one of the Premier View offerings—or, even better, the Cloud Nine Suite—you’ll be treated to some of the best vistas in the city.
