The first Raffles hotel in North America will open its doors in mid-2023 in Boston’s Back Bay neighborhood. Part of the world-leading hospitality group Accor, Raffles Boston Back Bay Hotel & Residences features a stunning three-story sky lobby that is the first of its kind in the city.

The property’s guestrooms and residences are joined by 16 distinct gathering spaces, including a variety of special venues dedicated solely to residents. Highlights within the 16 gathering spaces include six food and beverage venues, a three-story Sky Lobby perched high above Copley Square, a state-of-the-art Raffles Spa, a 20-meter indoor pool and fitness center, a beautiful rooftop garden terrace lounge, a variety of intimate residents-only gathering places, and a ballroom with expansive views over the Charles River.
