Ames Boston

Boston, USA

The hotel

As recommendations go, being named ‘Best Hotel in Boston’ by Boston Magazine is pretty conclusive (after all, they are the experts). But, just in case you need more endorsement, Ames Boston also appears on the 2017 and 2018 Condé Nast Traveller Gold List. Much of that’s down to its unsurpassable Financial District location, just around the corner from historic Faneuil Hall. But it’s also down to the old-meets-new styling, with its historic sandstone shell giving way to a modern interpretation of luxury, with sleek oak floors, 50 inch TVs, and complimentary WiFi. And it’s also down to its extras, like in-room spa services and free seasonal bike hire. The dining brings more accolades, with the seasonal offerings at Cultivar brought to you by the award-winning Mary Dumont, and featuring ingredients from the hotel’s hydroponic garden and carefully foraged finds.

Location wise the ames is perfect with the harbour . Freedom trail . Faneuil hall . City centre stores . Bars . Restaurants and the common all short walks from the hotel . The T stop could not of been closer helping travel further afield such as Fenway park etc. So apart from location hotel is pretty cool such a beautiful building and almost every staff member we came across was really nice ( just one lady a bit grumpy on reception one day but everyone can have a bad day ) Room was up there with best weve stayed in and was well serviced daily Hotel no longer has bar or restaurant . As we were on vacation we planned to eat out every night anyway although after a long day sightseeing a bar to wind down in rather than go back out would be good. Still gave this 5 out of 5 because for us it didnt matter really. Overall location was perfect .room was stunning so all good Read less

Everything from the door man greeting us, to the front desk staff, the great breakfast personnel and housekeeping was stellar. This history of the building itself was an added bonus. As for the location...you couldn't ask for a better or more convenient spot. Right in the middle of the best of Boston. I'm sad to hear you guys are closing. We… Read more

Ames hotel is so conveniently located you can just walk around to go wherever you want. The staff was friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. We just had some problems with the bed since it was uncomfortable and the AC was weird to the point of us waking up feeling hot. Other than these 2 our overall experience was good.

Hilton Hotels are simply the best professional staff, extremely clean. Enjoy the pool and exercise rooms. The Ames Boston Hotel was in the center of everything. We walked everyone. Will stay here again...
