Four Seasons Hotel Boston has just reopened and is ready to usher in a new era of unparalleled hospitality. As the premier destination in the city, the hotel has undergone a dramatic transformation, with a stunning redesign of its arrival area, lobby, and porte cochere. These spaces have been expertly crafted in collaboration with renowned AD100 designer Ken Fulk, resulting in artful and inspired surroundings that are sure to leave a lasting impression. The revitalized areas of the hotel have set the stage for a new level of guest experiences, as well as unforgettable events and cherished memories. With its sophisticated and stylish new look, the Four Seasons Hotel Boston is the perfect choice for travelers seeking the ultimate in luxury and comfort.
Four Seasons Hotel Boston’s transformation seamlessly blends the hotel’s timeless elegance with the lush greenery of the adjacent Public Garden. Drawing inspiration from the sophisticated residences of Beacon Hill and Back Bay, where classic and contemporary styles merge seamlessly, Ken Fulk envisioned the hotel as a grand estate overlooking impeccably manicured grounds. the designer’s vision comes to life in the new arrival experience, which visually connects the hotel to the historic garden just beyond its doors. Guests are now welcomed into a black-and-white-tiled entry court, complete with lush plantings and lanterns that create a serene and inviting atmosphere. This elegant entryway leads to the sanctuary of the hotel’s new lobby, which showcases a perfect blend of old-world charm and modern sophistication.
The Hotel’s remodeled interiors now offer guests a more intimate and welcoming atmosphere. The once expansive lobby has been thoughtfully reimagined into a series of smaller, yet grand spaces that exude a residential feel. The newly designed front desk, crafted from tooled leather, sits below an impressive original artwork that depicts the beautiful Public Garden. Additionally, an Impressionist-style mural inspired by Maxfield Parrish’s work showcases the Garden’s flora and fauna, including willows, elm and oak trees surrounding the lagoon, where swan boats gracefully glide under the Foot Bridge. One swan even holds a key, which serves as a hint to a hidden and fanciful mystery closet located beside the front desk.
As part of their Four Seasons Hotel Boston experience, young guests are presented with a large “kids-only” key upon their arrival, inviting them to explore the secret closet and select their very own toys. This delightful experience sets the tone for an enchanting and memorable stay.
Hotel guests can now enjoy a variety of captivating lobby-level spaces throughout the day. One of the newest additions to the hotel is Coterie – a lounge and restaurant that is open daily for lunch, dinner, and bar service. Inspired by Boston’s centuries-old tradition of intellectuals and creators gathering to share ideas and socialize, Coterie is conceived as a space for intimate conversations and a retreat from the outside world.
Executive Chef Patrice Martineau’s elevated traditional fare will complement the selection of classic and signature cocktails, some of which feature a custom botanical gin made exclusively for Four Seasons Hotel Boston and honey from the Hotel’s rooftop hives. Fulk’s design creates a charming estate ambiance, with rich layers of botanical illustrations and portraits of writers and artists adorning the walls, a soft color palette inspired by garden florals, vintage lighting, and a zinc-topped bar with leather and brass details serving as the centerpiece.
Located opposite Coterie is the Library, a tranquil haven that provides guests with an oasis of calm. The room is adorned with rich velvet seating that is accentuated with silk fringe, providing a plush and comfortable setting for guests to unwind. The bookshelves are carefully curated to evoke the feeling of a collection gathered by a family over generations. Guests can wait for a friend or enjoy a classic cocktail while perusing the books.
