When searching Travelocity for a quick weekend getaway to Boston, we found the NINE ZERO hotel on one of the packages. To book this hotel individually was quite expensive, but as a package it was very reasonable.
Our room description on booking said “intimate,” which led me to believe we might be getting the worst possible room. Further research had me concerned with numerous reviews about the arrogant young staff. However, we couldn’t have been more pleased.
We arrived from Logan airport and took the T straight to Park, which was the nearest stop. The hotel itself looks elegant from the outside, though definitely not historic-looking with its edgy nickel-and-chrome design. It's directly opposite the graveyard in which Samuel Adams is buried.
On arrival, the staff was friendly, trendy, and very helpful. They upgraded us to a “Fantastic room,” so I never did get to see what the “intimate” one looked like. Our room was stunning, in an Art Deco design with earthy colours of browns, beiges, and blacks. The bed was huge and the headboard tall, padded, and luxurious. We had a great view; white robes;designer shampoos, moisturisers, etc.; and marble bathroom. I particularly liked the pull-out bar with all the ingredients for a killer martini and neon CD player with ambient CD at the ready. In fact, one of the things that fascinated me most, not being used to such fancy accommodations, was that the CD player would be turned on and playing every time we entered the room from sightseeing.
When we needed advice on restaurants, sights, or clubs, they were spot on with their recommendations. Nine Zero was easy walking distance to all the sights around Quincy Market and Feneuil Hall, as well as being steps away from two different T stops. Its also right on the edge of Boston Common, which makes for such a beautiful afternoon on a late summer's day!
Their in-house restaurant, Spire, has won awards for outstanding food, but we didn't get chance to eat there. The restaurant, though, was beautiful to look at at least, and I'm sure the food equaled its reputation.
