There are few things better than weekend mornings. And being on fall break and having no class makes them even better! After half a semester of 8:00am classes, I cherish my weekends to sleep in. In Boston, we stayed at The Lenox Hotel. It was honestly one of the best hotel experiences I have had. Boy, did I feel at home! I am already planning my next trip!
In college, lazy weekends are far and few between, so I took advantage of this. I lounged around in my PJ's and ate a big brunch. I have a few pajama sets, but this Brooks Brothers set is one my favorites (and on major sale). I hate sleeping in pants, so this short sleeve/short combo is perfectly lightweight and comfortable.
The Lenox Hotel is a known as the "original boutique hotel" Driving/parking in Boston is a nightmare so the valet parking was essential. The location was unbeatable. The Back Bay area of Boston is picture-perfect. We had a large window overlooking the Boston Public Library and Beacon Hill. I loved all the natural light that came in each morning as well as the sunset that we could watch directly from our window!
High ceilings, crystal lamps, and wood-burning fireplaces are just a few of my favorite aspects. The interior design of the lobby was something to marvel. It looked like a mansion living room with a large fireplace and low lighting and had complimentary coffee, tea, water, and refreshments. The architecture of the hotel was reminiscent of the 1920's. It had a very Gatsby-esque ambiance. The room - and really the entire hotel - was decorated exactly to my taste. Everything was so luxurious and classic. I appreciated the hidden refrigerator stocked with complimentary waters as well as complimentary Lindt Chocolate and Beekman Brothers Caramel. It was perfect for late-night cravings.
The staff was very attentive and friendly. They had great suggestions for places to go, things to do, and restaurants to check out! If you are going to Boston, I wholeheartedly recommend the Lenox. You cannot beat the location. More to come on my trip to Boston (Fall Foliage in Concord, MA), but I just had to highlight the wonderful accommodations at The Lenox!
