New England’s winter may not be the ideal time to visit, due to freezing temperatures, but it’s the most affordable season. You can in fact book a dirt-cheap sojourn in Beantown! We found a threesome of four-star hotel deals in Boston that now start at just $128/night.
Plush overnight at The Onyx for $150/night
This four-star spot hides in a striking 12-story building with a two-tone red-brick and aluminum exterior, steps away from downtown Boston and Beacon Hill. Frommer’s describes the property as “contemporary in style, decorated in soothing jewel tones with sleek lines and high ceilings that make the decent-size rooms feel even bigger.” On the premises is the swish Ruby Room bar and restaurant. A night spent here would normally mean north of $400 less in your bank account, unless you book through Hotels.com. Nightly rates have been reduced to just $189!
Millennium Bostonian Hotel for 128/night
At Faneuil Hall Marketplace in downtown Boston, this intimate charmer comes with all the high-end trimmings. Fodor’s writes, “The two wings of this small luxury hotel are a blend of old and new. The Harkness Wing, built as a warehouse in 1824, has 42 rooms (some with working fireplaces) and exposed beam ceilings; rooms in the newer wing are done in light woods, crackle finishes, and soft yellows and blues. Every room has live plants, and many have balconies with window boxes.” Book a night through Orbitz and pay just $128 — discounted from the $350 standard cost!
Historic sojourn at The Lenox for $175/night
This historic Back Bay spot has been around as a luxury overnight since the 1900s. Gayot.com writes, “Touting itself as "Boston’s Baby Grand," this hotel property offers a nice alternative to the massive luxury chains in the area. It has been open for over a century, and it prides itself on a unique flair reminiscent of smaller European hotels.” Rooms are decorated in a rich style incorporating bold colors, dark woods and drapery. Rates here normally run up to $498/night but if reserve through Orbitz and you’ll pay $175.
