Best of Boston

2024 Best Hotel, Urban Oasis

The Newbury Boston

What’s even better than a stroll through the Public Garden on a breezy summer day? Having a room overlooking it at the Newbury. The hotel features an exclusive lounge for overnight guests, a contemporary art collection in the lobby, and, of course, one of the city’s toughest-to-get reservations, Contessa — which also overlooks the park.
