The Crown Jewel of Boston Hotels, renowned for its cherished traditions, classic style and award-winning service, has welcomed guests from around the world since it first opened its doors in 1927. Located at the corner of the fashionable Arlington and Newbury streets Taj Boston overlooks the charming Public Garden acclaimed for its lagoon used for swan boat rides and ice-skating frog pond. Taj Boston is only 4.8 miles from Logan International Airport and is also close to major highways and railroad stations. The hotel underwent a complete restoration in 2002 to celebrate its 75th anniversary. New services and amenities were added and a prized collection of original art and antiques is now on display throughout the hotel. Surrounded by art galleries, boutiques and restaurants, Taj Boston is in the heart of it all. The hotel is close to the Theatre District, historic sites and shopping at Copley Place and the Hynes Convention Center.
