The Most Instagram-Worthy Hotels In Boston

Boston’s beautiful oceanfront location gives it an easy advantage as being one of the most picturesque cities in the country. With so many hotels along the waterfront offering picture-perfect views, not to mention others scattered throughout the city catering to our hometown teams, here’s a look at some of Boston’s most Instagram-worthy hotels.

Boston Harbor Hotel

The Boston Harbor Hotel located at Rowes Wharf has one of the prettiest views in town. The waterfront setting with bowed archway lets you know you have arrived. Once here, there are lots of places to get your Instagram on – head out back for a photo along the waterfront, capture a view from the weekly Blues barge, snap a picture of the movies held on the waterfront each week or head over to Meritage where Executive Chef Daniel Bruce, founder of the Boston Wine Festival, pairs up perfect creations with hard-to-find wines.

The Envoy Hotel

Also in the Seaport District, The super chic Envoy Hotel offers one of the best views in town from the sixth floor Lookout Rooftop and Bar. A first step inside the boutique property and you might think you are in South Beach, but one of the latest newcomers to the waterfront location takes full advantage of its New England setting with its comfortable and approachable restaurants that focus heavily on seafood offerings.

The Lenox Hotel

Boston’s original boutique hotel in Back Bay is also where, according to the hotel’s Instagram feed, “Babe Ruth entertained, The Navy bunked & America’s first linen recycling launched.” As if that weren’t photo-worthy enough, The Lenox Hotel is also the best hotel to stay in for a front row view of the Boston Marathon and when the duck boats roll into town for our award-winning sports teams’ rallies held after every Super Bowl, World Series and Stanley Cup win.

Hotel Commonwealth

The closest accommodations to Fenway Park, Hotel Commonwealth caters to Red Sox fans at its Kenmore Square location. Book a Pavilion Club package here that includes everything from a Red Sox welcome basket delivered on arrival, two tickets to a home game, a visit to the Green Monster and pre-game VIP tour to a personal message on the scoreboard during the game and a historical guide through the Red Sox Hall of Fame. The pet-friendly property offers some sweet suites, including the Fenway Park suite that comes complete with use of a baseball glove for fly balls (yes, it’s that close to the park), the Terrier Suite that pays homage to nearby Boston University and the floor-to-ceiling Loft Suite.

A hotel designed like the cabin of an airplane with a technology-driven guest experience (think Technowall with adjustable mood lighting and a HD smart TV to stream music and movies direct from your own devices). Other fun amenities at this second U.S. location that you will want to take a quick snap of include a Monsoon shower with Urban Skincare shampoo, conditioner, shower gel and body lotion, and free purified water, ice, coffee and tea.
