The privately owned Lenox, which first opened in 1900, boasts a prime location next to the Boston Public Library. The hotel's old-style gold and blue decor oozes quiet elegance, while its rooms feature brass chandeliers, dark wood furniture and marble bathrooms; several also boast working fireplaces, as does the charmingly restored lobby. The Lenox also houses the independently owned restaurant Azure - superb New England cuisine with a twist, courtesy of young, vivacious chef Andy Fathman - and the chic City Bar and City Table.
