Forget sex in the city, it’s all about sleeping in the city.
This 115 room boutique hotel is sure to become an instant hit, nestled between the Financial District and Downtown Crossing. Interiors were designed by the Rockwell Group in combination with Cambridge Seven Associates. Both of whom assisted in the restoration of the beautiful, mosaic tile, barrel vaulted entry ceiling, brass staircase and stone exterior, all to the tune of $40 + million.
Aside from the intriguing interiors, the hotel is located close to major transit, historical destinations and is surrounded by a variety hip restaurants and vibrant night spots. However with noted chef Mark Goldberg (of Mistral and Top of the Hub fame) working his magic in the house restaurant; Woodward, you may decide to eat in.
The 19th century Ames building- a local landmark, is a Romanesque Revival structure that shadows the Old State House and City Hall. As a former office building which sat unoccupied for a number of years, this new hotel is proving that Downtown Crossing still has the ability to attract new businesses and hopefully a young professional crowd. Joining the masses of upscale condo towers, chic restaurants and busy theatres, the Ames Hotel is symbolic of the gentrification taking place in the former Combat Zone.
Boston tourists can now sleep in style and comfort, and who knows, maybe the Ames Hotel will bring more movies, money and mayhem to the downtown core.
