Loews Boston Back Bay Hotel

Boston, USA

The hotel

Once home to the Boston Police Headquarters, Loews Boston Back Bay Hotel is a haven of charm, sophistication and traditional New England hospitality, right in the heart of Boston's city centre. Formerly home to the old Boston Police Headquarters, this 1920's landmark is a piece of history in itself, a magnificent tribute to the city's long forgotten past. Ideally situated between 3 of the city's most sought after neighbourhoods, the South End, the Theatre District and the Back Bay, this hotel is the perfect place to hang your hat after a hard day of exploring. This hotel might be convenient, but it's much more than just a base. Each of the 225 guest rooms combine luxury, comfort and elegance to ensure the most comfortable stay. As well as state-of-the-art facilities, each beautifully renovated guestroom features soft lighting, modern decor and furnishings and decadent Frette bed linen. If you can bear to leave the comfort of your room, why not mingle with the locals and get a feel for the real Boston as you sample some delicious New England fare at the Precinct Kitchen and Bar, or venture out to enjoy a spot of retail therapy at nearby Newbury Street.

We had our wedding room block at the Loews this spring, and the entire Loews staff was exceptional throughout the entire process. We had to reschedule our original 2020 date due to COVID, and they were so helpful and flexible with moving our dates.

We had our wedding room block at the Loews this spring, and the entire Loews staff was exceptional throughout the entire process. We had to reschedule our original 2020 date due to COVID, and they were so helpful and flexible with moving our dates. During the weekend, the staff went above and beyond to make us and our guests comfortable. We had our rehearsal dinner at The Precinct restaurant on site as well, and the entire team worked with us to put together the event we envisioned while still adhering to COVID restrictions. They were incredibly flexible and helped find great solutions given the restrictions (which were still fairly strict at the time). So many guests remarked at how much they enjoyed the hotel and restaurant. Finally, the location cannot be beat – our ceremony was near the Hynes Convention Center and we took photos at the Public Gardens. The Loews is perfectly situated to have easy access to all of the best spots in Downtown Boston. I’m so thankful to the Loews team for working with us to make sure our wedding weekend was absolutely perfect. Read less
