Although efforts have been made to smarten up this part of Downtown Boston, overlooking the Common near the Theatre District, it's still working on the idea of the rise. The hotel, however, offers all the luxury associated with the Ritz-Carlton name - although it eschews old-fashioned opulence in favor of more contemporary styling. A creamy, neutral colour palette creates a warm, relaxing atmosphere and the suites are fabulous, with sweeping floor-to-ceiling windows and imposing fireplaces. There's a slick (and expensive) in-house restaurant and bar, Jer-Ne, along with a chic bar/restaurant, Blu, and the vaguely health-oriented Blu Café. The vast Sports Club/LA is next door (guests pay a $15 fee per room, per day), along with the Splash Spa.
