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.

My hubby & I are from outside the city but love to spend a weekend or 2 a year in city. We've stayed at the Lowes several occasion, post-covid. It's super clean, staff is super nice and accommodating, the rooms are gorgeous. It's some of the best sleep i've ever gotten. It's in a great location, next to a bunch of awesome restaurants.

Over all I thought the stay was good and the front desk was courteous and informative.

The only issue I had was when I went to shower early in the morning for my 6:30am business meeting, there were hair all over the walls of the shower from the prior person who stayed and were not cleaned off. In the Covid era we are working through, ensuring that the sites where we stay for work are clean is of upmost importance and that was the one area where I was disappointed. Read less
