The Most Beautifully Designed Hotel Lobbies in Greater Boston
The newish boutique features a lobby with a striking wall of shiny gold- and silver-hued paneling in an otherwise deliberately sparse setting.
The lobby in this boutique kind of screams "Gatsbyesque," no? Dark and measured, like a fine red wine.
Cambridge's swankiest inn has a suitably swanky entryway of deep colors punctuated by sprightly paintings of brighter street scenes.
Also featured in:
The Four Seasons, yup: bright, sweeping, marble, light, high ceilings, etc.
The Langham's lobby reopened in November 2012 after millions in renovations and with a new name: The Reserve. It's based supposedly on a European Champagne lounge, and is crowned by beautiful chandeliers.
Omni Parker House
The lobby's discreetly arched ceiling and the sonorous wood paneling bespeak the elegance of one of New England's oldest hotels.
The light-filled lobby with the arched entries and egresses takes advantage of the overall hotel's architecture: very spacious, extra points for that.
Woah, Nellie! The capacious lobby takes full, um, liberty with the hotel's past as a jail (there's even the deliciously ironic Clink restaurant).
The boutique hews to soft oranges and golds in the lobby next to its City Table restaurant. Very tasteful, and you'll also notice the hotel's signature lemon grass candles.
Dig the W's stone and marble (get it?). The ceiling is also several floors above.
