Set in its own private enclave with harbor views and landscaped courtyard, this stunning hotel offers guests an urban sanctuary in the heart of the city. The narrow streets and historic wharves made up Boston's first neighborhood and shaped the early growth of the city. Today, steeped in 300 years of history, warehouses and shipyards have been reborn as residences and restaurants, complete with harbor side walking paths and new urban parks. The modern shoreline offers an exciting gateway to the city.(12/08 LM)
