Loews Boston Hotel | 154 Berkeley Street | Boston, MA 02116 | 1-617-266-7200

My wife Jennifer and I recently had the pleasure of staying at the Loews Boston Hotel located next to three of Boston’s most vibrant neighborhoods: the Back Bay, the South End, and the Theater District.

The hotel is a short walk to historic monuments in Beacon Hill and Back Bay, as well as the theaters, shops, restaurants and art galleries on Newbury Street and in the South End. Logan International Airport is five miles away, and major highways and railroad stations are easily accessible.

The hotel impresses before you even step inside! Housed in the historic 1926 Boston Police Headquarters, the 73,350 square-foot building was built from stone, masonry, concrete and steel. 

As we entered Loews Boston Hotel’s lobby we were impressed by the sleek, modern design and relaxed atmosphere.

After our quick check-in we headed to our (newly renovated) premium king room.

Our handsome, contemporary room had a sophisticated style with hues of grays and blues, calm lighting, impressive art work and great views of the city.

The luxurious bathroom was HUGE with a stand alone shower and tub combination.

The hotel also surprised us with a Charcuterie Combo Board from the onsite restaurant, Precinct Kitchen + Bar, which included a heaping amount of (delicious) prosciutto, salumi, chorizo, Bijou goat cheese, Berkshire blue cheese, grilled bread, grapes and more! Wow!

GAY & LESBIAN FACTOR: As a TAG Approved gay friendly hotel, Loews Boston Hotel is a perfect choice when visiting the city for business or leisure! Boston, the capital of the first state to allow gay marriage in America, received a perfect 100% from HRC for its support and protection of the LGBT population with regard to municipal law and policy. 

There is no shortage of gay nightclubs, bars and gay-friendly/gay-owned restaurants, which are scattered throughout town, with the South End and Tremont Street area being the “traditional gay neighborhood.” 

We found the staff at Loews Boston Hotel extremely welcoming and friendly and wholeheartedly “OUT” the property as LGBT friendly and worthy of our business!

Travel to me always seems to go by quickly, but especially so when I’m visiting such an exciting city and staying at a truly, luxurious hotel! Our time at Loews Boston Hotel flew by, and it certainly left us wanting more.

We cannot wait to return!
