Best of Boston

2019 Best Hotel, North


Gloucester is now a destination thanks to this luxe beachfront retreat, which has been bringing sizzle to the site of a former frozen-foods plant since it opened in 2016. The long-weekenders come to lounge at the rooftop pool, dine overlooking Pavilion Beach, and pedal around town on complimentary beach cruisers. But they stay for the fresh, nautically inspired guest rooms, some of which offer water vistas and fireplaces.
