I Had the pleasure of spending the night with Loews Boston location a few weekends back and wanted to share the experience with ya’ll. The hotel is located conveniently on Berkley street, just a few blocks from a bunch of the hottest restaurants, bars, shopping areas and tourist attractions in Boston. Not only is the hotel a beautiful building full of history, it is also surrounded by some of the most iconic buildings and attractions in the area.
The Bostonian hotel, over 75 years ago, stood as the Boston Police Headquarters. It still to this day has many of the original features and attributes of the original building, such as all the gold detailing, metal fixtures, and the beautiful wood paneling.
I was lucky enough to have a quick little tour of the Hotel after check in and was so interested in the history. Walking the hotel hallways you will pass awesome photos of the police force, the building, and the city during the time of when the headquarters were active. It was so cool seeing what the same street and building looks like just 50-70 years ago and how much has changed since then. I also thought it was neat that all the conference rooms in the hotel are named after offers from different ranks during that time.
For this particular stay, I was met with a beautiful view of the city from my King room. I was pleased with the spacious, yet cozy, room and especially enjoyed the little reading nook, perfect for my morning devotions.
The room had a nice size Television, multiple windows for natural light, two reading nooks, a working desk, mini fridge, full size closet and more. I was also pleasantly surprised with how spacious the bathroom was with a decent size vanity, full size tub and walk in shower.
I love Hotels that have their own restaurant. It makes everything so much easier and super convenient. Lowes Boston has a basement level restaurant, named The Precinct (how punny?) The restaurant serves brunch and dinner and focuses on traditional Boston cuisine so if you’re looking for a place that really relates to the city, The Precinct is your spot.
I visited for their Sunday brunch and loved it. I ordered the breakfast sandwich and also HAD to try their french toast. Recommend the french toast for sure, 10/10! The only thing i will note is i wasn’t able to enjoy my regular morning cup of coffee because the hotel does not offer non-dairy options. No almond milk. bummer!
If you’re out and on the go and looking for a bite to eat, theres so many different options all within walking distance. I recommend trying out Flour bakery (right behind the hotel, literally a two minute walk). Its local & woman owned and absolutely amazing. Best almond milk lattes around! Saved my life when i found out the hotel didn’t have dairy free options.
Loews Hotel is honestly in one of the best locations. You have to remember, it used to be a police station so that means its literally located in a hot and busy area. Everything you need is in walking distance.
If your’e looking to spend the day shopping, you have Boston’s famous Newbury street just a 5 minute walk away. You also have The Boston Commons within the same distance, so if you brought your pup with you, you have a great place to take them to for a morning walk. (yes Loews hotel is Pet friendly).
If you’re looking to explore other parts of the city like the Seaport District, Park street, the Prudential, Fenway Park and more, You can hop on one of the Trolly stops (Just a few minutes walk as well) and tour the whole city. Be sure to talk to the front desk at. the hotel and they will be able to set you up with how to purchase trolly tickets.
Over all, I had a great time visting Loews Hotel. The staff was amazing and was always so kind and accommodating. The hotel was secure and felt like home, and the area was absolutely stunning.
Would I come back? 100%!!
Hope you guys enjoyed this blog post and be sure to add Boston on your list of places to travel to next!
