Beacon Hill Hotel & Bistro

25 Charles St.
Boston , MA , United States
(617) 723-7575

Occupying two adjacent, refurbished 19th-century town houses on Beacon Hill’s best antiquing street, this hotel is a great choice if you prefer cozy inns to slick high-rises. The 13 rooms have mod-cons like flat-screen TV’s, but well-chosen antiques, muted floral prints, and black-and-white photographs maintain the historical feel. The ground-floor, wood-paneled bistro is a destination unto itself, with top-notch Gallic dishes like courgettes soup Provençal, steak frites, and pâté made in-house by the French-trained chef Jason Bond.

Tip: Relax after a day of antiquing with cocktails on the lovely roof terrace, which links the hotel's two buildings.

Room to Book: Jake's Room, on the fifth floor of the North Building, is the hotel's most spacious, with vaulted ceilings and skylights.
