need a hotel recommendation for two young women

We just decided to visit Boston during the long upcoming weekend ( first time in Boston!) and having a hard time selecting a hotel. We are both from NYC, single, mid 20s. We love the ambience, good food and modern upscale lounges. Any suggestions/recommendations for the hotel? What location would be best for us?

How about the Onyx? Cheapest rate for a room there with 2 double beds for this weekend is $143/night via Travelocity, which is an excellent price for this property.

Or you could get a double/double room at the Jurys -- the #1 hotel on the TA "hit parade" of Boston hotels -- for $175/night via Expeda; this too is very reasonable price for this particular hotel. The rooms at the Jurys will be larger, but the Onyx decor is more hip.

No need to be concerned about a hotel's food. Boston is a very compact town with lots of good restaurants to suit all tastes & budgets, so it will be easy for you to have some wonderful dining experiences outside your hotel's doorstep, no matter where you stay :-)

Both of the above suggestions are good. The Onyx is a Kimpton hotel, and they tend to have a very funky, hip feeling to their properties. In fact, the Onyx has rooms designed by various "celebrities", including a Brittney Spears suite...although I think it's OK to wear underwear when staying there...;)

The Onyx is also near the Banknorth Garden, which means it's surrounded by sports bars and pubs, and lots of rowdy sports fans. Most of those are males, however, so this might be a good thing for you both.

However, if you want a more refined, classier atmosphere, I'd suggest going with Jury's. The hotel bar is one of the city's "hot spots", and it's in the heart of the Back Bay with shopping and fine dining and away from the sports crowds.

Another possible option for you would be the new Intercontinental Boston, on the waterfront. It's got a beautiful view of the harbor or the skyline, and it's only a few blocks from the Quincy Market area, with it's blocks of irish pubs and yuppie bars.
