Ritz-Carlton Boston Common

In true Ritz-Carlton form, the Ritz-Carlton Boston Common combines contemporary sophistication and classic elegance for a truly luxurious experience whether traveling for business or leisure. 

Located in the heart of downtown, this hotel is the perfect place to experience the history, culture, night life and culinary indulgences the city has to offer. Most rooms offer views of the picturesque Boston Common (the city’s 50 acre central public park) which is just down the street from the hotel. Also just a short walk way is the start of the Freedom Trail (a walking path through the downtown area linking 17 significant landmarks in our nation’s history), Faneuil Hall Marketplace, Boston’s Theater District, Chinatown and Little Italy.

Gym-goers and health-nuts will love the 100,000 sq ft spa, fitness and sports complex, The Sports Club/LA. Featuring a salon, a full-range of spa treatments, a health-focused restaurant/bar/café, over 40 different sports and fitness options including: a junior Olympic pool (indoors), a full basketball court, squash courts, a boxing studio and a myriad of instructor-led classes.

Connected to the 19-screen Loews Theater Boston Common, guests can visit the upscale theater to catch a recent release, or groups can use the theater’s videoconferencing capabilities to connect with others around the world. 

With 11,000 total square feet of truly flexible indoor meeting space, this hotel is a perfect fit for small, intimate groups and can meet and feed groups of 150+ with ample breakout space. All meeting rooms are located on the same level in two adjacent wings with a large ballroom on each side, providing privacy when there are multiple groups in-house. The Ritz-Carlton Ballroom is 3,574 sq ft and features floor-to-ceiling windows with views of the Boston Common and city skyline as well as state-of-the-art built-in audio-visual equipment.

In mid-2010, the Ritz completed a $11 million renovation of the 193 guest rooms (including 43 suites), meeting spaces and public areas emphasizing community, creativity and “the fine art of living.” Shortly after, the lobby bar and hotel restaurant were also renovated and re-branded with the goal of appealing not just to hotel guests but also become a hotspot for locals looking for a more stylish and relaxed gathering place.

As of January 2011, the Ritz-Carlton Boston Common has earned AAA 5-Diamond Status and is one of only three hotels in Boston and about 100 hotels in the country to achieve the 5-Diamond standing.
