Valentine romance at The Ames Boston Hotel

See also

In the midst of a heavenly winter (because, yes, some people love a season filled with an abundance of snow), one of the best aeries from which to relish hibernal pleasures is a suite at The Ames Boston Hotel. What could be nicer than a restorative romantic weekend with an eagle’s eye view of downtown Boston?

Opened in 2009, The Ames Boston Hotel is housed in Boston's first skyscraper, a 13-story neo-Romanesque structure of granite and sandstone that has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places since 1974.

The boutique hotel’s impeccable renovation retained much of the building’s historic detail, such as the mosaic ceilings, carved stonework, marble staircases, and reclaimed granite - and combined it with the sleek and chic design vision of David Rockwell of The Rockwell Group.

The hotel’s 114 rooms and suites (and one apartment) foster the fantasy of living in a 21st-century Boston pied à terre marked by historic provenance: arched windows and 13-foot ceilings are complemented by original marble fireplaces and oak floorboards.

Floor-to-ceiling sheer window treatments further the illusion of floating inside a silvery snow cloud and the modern décor features chrome, leather, and marble in varying shades of white, gray, and charcoal. The streamlined and minimalist aesthetic provides a calming atmosphere in which to decompress and unwind, high above the city streets.

For Valentine’s Day weekend, The Ames Boston Hotel’s XO Package includes deluxe accommodations in a corner or deluxe king room with city views. Each room features the hotel’s signature “Sexy Shower” with its peek-a-boo glass wall and rain forest showerhead. All XO Packages also include complimentary valet parking, a split of Champagne, late check-out, and The Ames Boston Hotel “Intimacy Kit.”

Located in the city’s Financial District, abutting Government Center, The Ames Boston Hotel is almost next door to Faneuil Hall with its many upscale boutiques and restaurants and only a short walk to the newly-bohemian and fashionable North End.

The hotel’s accolades include a place on Condé Nast Traveler’s “Hot List,” as well as a AAA Four Diamond property rating.

This February, write your Valentine’s Day fantasy at The Ames Boston Hotel.
