The Ritz-Carlton, Boston is a home away from home for families who celebrate time-honored traditions while creating unique and unforgettable memories. Located across from Boston Common, the hotel features 193 guest rooms and suites, Ballroom and Club Lounge that are inspired by some of Europe’s most elegant and sophisticated boutique hotels, with subtle influences from literary greats, Edgar Allan Poe and Ralph Waldo Emerson.
The sophisticated guest rooms at The Ritz-Carlton, Boston are decorated with fabrics custom made in hues of blue, grey and mustard, lighting, carpeting which are made with 13% recycled materials, artwork by local artist Jon Amburg and furnishings that encourage guests to relax or work as they do at home. Guests can stay connected in-room with the help of the multiple outlets and USB ports along with an enhanced entertainment package that offers Netflix, Hulu Plus and Pandora on large screen Smart TVs.
The design of the hotel’s Executive Suites draws inspiration from the works of Edgar Allan Poe and Ralph Waldo Emerson. The style references are subtle, unexpected twists on their visionary spirits in these spacious suites that offer a living area separated by French doors leading to a master bedroom with a sumptuous king bed. A custom wallcovering depicting Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Raven” was designed by Rockwell Group with Brooklyn artist Jill Malek. This unique wallcovering provides a striking backdrop to the living room’s bar area. An authentic reproduction of a 17th century Windsor chair, inspired by a chair at the Adams National Historic Park in Quincy, MA, sits under photos of the iconic Boston Public Library. And through French doors, the large bedroom offers a new custom upholstered headboard, sumptuous sky-blue carpeting and contemporary globe lighting. The design inspiration for the hotel’s Luxury Suites (these offer master bedroom with king bed, residential living room with sweeping views of the city, and a separate dining area with seating for six) stems from Boston essayist, lecturer, and poet, Ralph Waldo Emerson.
All guest rooms and suites are equipped with the new Telkonet EcoSmart System which allows for quintessential “smart and personalized” room comfort. Sleek new touchscreen thermostats minimize HVAC run time when the room is unoccupied, yet permit guests to have full control of the temperature when they are in-room. The thermostat’s sharp, backlit display with haptic vibrational feedback makes it easy for the guest to make any temperature adjustments without any confusion. Display options in additional languages of Spanish, French and Portuguese are available, and the guest has the option to display temperatures in Fahrenheit or Celsius, while also viewing current weather conditions and a 3-day forecast for Boston.
