We stayed here for a weekend trip up from NYC to see the Shepard Fairey exhibit at ICA." We had very spacious well-appointed room, good food from room service, nice view of harbor, relaxing swim in the spa's pool and jacuzzi." Plus it was walking distance from the Institute of Contemporary Art. Perfect.
Dining: A few steps away is circus-tent-looking place called the Barking Crab. We ducked in because it was so rainy and cold out that we needed a pit stop even on the short walk from ICA to the hotel. Inside we found a large variety of beers on tap plus freshly cooked crab and lobster. I had the area's famous lobster roll, and now at least I can say I've done that. Perfect pit stop - really warmed us up.
Restaurants on Charles St in Beacon Hill are highly recommended. Cute area to walk about and window shop too after eating. Figs pizzeria is one of a kind. And brunch places abound.
Great, enjoyable weekend in Boston, anchored by the plushy hotel that was a good value too.More
