Property Review: The Whitney Hotel, Boston
Updated: Dec 9, 2021
Located in the heart of the historic Beacon Hills neighborhood of Boston, The Whitney Hotel is one of the areas shining stars. The 65-room boutique hotel, which opened in 2019 is conveniently located to some of downtown Boston’s most popular attractions and just blocks away from Boston Common.
Upon entering the property, guests are immediately greeted by a small reception area complete with comfortable seating and a fireplace perfect for those cold winter days. Just around the corner is Peregrine restaurant, which serves food and cocktails throughout the day including specialty coffee.
The hotel, named for Henry Melville Whitney, a prominent Boston industrialist and one-time owner of the site, features a small fitness studio with a few pieces of cardio equipment, free weights, and yoga mats along with a Hydrow machine.
The rooms at The Whitney are extremely spacious and feature luxury Frette linens throughout. I was told that Shark Tank star and the Queen of QVC, Lori Greiner, stayed at the property in 2019.
If you are looking to venture to some attractions, The Whitney is located across the street from the Charles/MGH Red Line train station. They also offer complimentary bicycles for those looking to explore the city. For a unique experience, head to the Institute of Contemporary Art, where you can enjoy an exhibition featuring Deana Lawson, a prominent photographer highlighting the lives of African American people around the world.
For dinner, swing by The Fed, a wonderful British-inspired cocktail pub serving kicked up New England favorites. The restaurant is located on the ground floor of the old federal reserve building and is worth the visit. We began our meal with some delicious raw oysters in addition to the Lobster Chowder. The broth was extremely flavorful, and the restaurant didn’t skimp on the lobster. Next up was the L.B.L.T., a huge sandwich filled with Maine lobster salad, thick cut bacon and served on toasted brioche.
After dinner, head back to The Whitney for a night cap at the bar before retiring and I suggest enjoying breakfast the next morning al fresco in the cozy courtyard. It is a great way to start the day.
