In terms of hotel architecture, it is hard to imagine a more original design scenario than a Boston luxury hotel created from an iconic 19th-century jail. Built in 1851, the Charles Street Jail was thought to be one of the best examples of the ?Boston Granite Style' of the mid-19th century. Recently renovated, the interior design reflects a passionate commitment to authenticity, while a more playful attitude defines its day-to-day style. Within the main building, there are 18 guest rooms, a grand ballroom and one of the city's hottest nightlife venues. Adjacent to a historical gallery of images and tales from the last 150 years, a 16-storey tower houses 280 guestrooms, enhanced by expansive views of Boston. Fully air-conditioned, the hotel also features a lobby, lift access, several restaurants, WLAN Internet access and room service. Guests arriving by vehicle can make use of the on-site car park and business guests will appreciate the conference facilities available at the hotel.
