A group of Boston real estate developers challenged Campion A. Platt (the designer responsible for New York’s MercBar and the Park Avalon) to re-create this historic 1900 building in an up-and-coming neighborhood a few blocks from Beacon Hill. The resulting 80 small rooms (average: 250 square feet) have brown leather headboards, white-on-white striped damask sheets, sleek marble bathrooms, and user-friendly touches like cordless phones and free high-speed Internet—all at an affordable price. The triangular shape of the building (similar to New York’s Flatiron Building) results in unique Nose Rooms, one on each floor, which have taller ceilings, larger windows, and an additional 100 square feet.
