DOWNTOWN BOSTON—The Hyatt Regency Boston's $13 million renovation is finished, leaving its 502 guestrooms and suites with, among other things, "a color scheme of soothing, warm grey and gentle gold undertones inspired by Boston's Charles River, where the water meets the sky," according to a press release.

ROXBURY—An apparently controversial push is underway to name a portion of the neighborhood after the late Mayor Tom Menino: "Nuestra Comunidad officials e-mailed surveys June 3 to 2,200 of 3,000 residents who live in the enclave, which is bounded by Quincy, Dudley, and Warren streets. Respondents were asked to select from a list of three proposed community names: 'Blue Hill North,' to denote the main thoroughfare in the area; 'Blue Hill Village,' to convey a sense of the tight-knit nook; or 'Menino Way,' to pay tribute to the mayor."
