Clarendon Square Inn

198 West Brookline St.
Boston , MA , United States
(617) 536-2229

Tucked along a quiet row of Victorian town houses in the arty South End, this 1868 brownstone has been meticulously reinvented as a three-room B&B. The five-story inn’s décor marries original architectural details (carved banisters and moldings) with bold-colored fabrics and Eastern touches (a koi pond and Japanese water garden in the entranceway). After a leisurely continental breakfast in the morning, amble over to Copley Place—it’s five minutes away.

Tip: Bring your bathing suit; there’s a rooftop hot tub with city skyline views, open year-round.

Room to Book: The Clarendon Suite, with its marble fireplace and deep freestanding bathtub.
