Since its inception in 1887 with the opening of the first hotel in Singapore, Raffles has consistently set the standard for gracious welcomes and enchanting guest experiences. Now, as the brand prepares to double its hotel portfolio by 2025, we are also witnessing the birth of a new legend in the heart of Boston – Raffles Boston.
The grand opening of Raffles Boston took place last week. This 35-story urban oasis not only marks a significant milestone for Raffles but also introduces the brand to the North American market. It’s a double debut that’s poised to redefine hospitality and real estate in Boston.
Rising majestically from Boston’s historic Back Bay neighborhood, Raffles Boston offers a dynamic new perspective on the city. With 147 traditional guestrooms, 146 branded residences, 16 distinct gathering spaces, and a Guerlain spa, this property is more than just a hotel; it’s a lifestyle destination.
What sets Raffles Boston apart is its commitment to curated experiences that capture the essence of the city. Boston’s rich academic, sporting, and cultural heritage will be woven into every aspect of the guest journey. Whether you’re a history enthusiast, a sports fan, or an art connoisseur, Raffles Boston has something special in store for you.
One of the standout features of Raffles Boston is its Sky Lobby. It’s not just a place to check in; it’s an experience in itself. This innovative space invites guests to explore diverse amenities, including the hotel’s signature restaurant, Amar. Here, culinary artistry meets the city’s rich gastronomic culture, creating a dining experience that’s bound to leave a lasting impression.
But the Sky Lobby is not just about food; it’s a gathering space where you can enjoy cocktails, unwind with a spa treatment, or simply soak in the breathtaking views of Boston. It’s a space designed to be the beating heart of Raffles Boston, where guests come together to celebrate life’s moments.
Raffles’ journey to becoming a global symbol of luxury began with a commitment to offering every guest a uniquely emotional experience. This commitment remains at the core of the brand’s identity, as it expands its presence across the globe. In cities like Doha, London, Macau, Bahrain, Jeddah, and Sentosa, Raffles has become synonymous with timeless elegance, a spirit of adventure, and a champion of culture in all its forms.
