Four Seasons Hotel Boston reopens

i By May 9, 2023 No Comments

Four Seasons Hotel Boston is once again welcoming guests.

Four Seasons partnered with AD100 designer Ken Fulk in the just-completed revitalization of the property’s arrival area, lobby and porte cochere.

Inspired by the elegant homes of Beacon Hill and Back Bay as well as the hotel’s location next to the city’s Public Garden, Fulk saw the space as a grand home.

New spaces for gracious living

Guests arrive in a black-and-white tiled entry court, accented with plants and lanterns.  The wide lobby is now a series of smaller spaces. A new front desk crafted in tooled leather stands beneath an original mural depicting the Public Garden.

The mural is drawn in Impressionistic style with a nod to painter Maxfield Parrish. It shows the Garden’s lagoon complete with swans and foot bridge. One swan holds a key, which is a clue to a hidden “mystery closet” next to the front desk. Upon arrival at Four Seasons Hotel Boston, young guests receive a “kids-only” key to the closet, which contains toys.

The lobby level’s new collection of spaces includes a new lounge and restaurant called Coterie. Open daily for lunch, dinner and bar service, it serves elevated fare from executive chef Patrice Martineau. It also offers classic and signature cocktails, including drinks made with botanical gin created exclusively for Four Seasons Hotel Boston.

Coterie’s decor evokes a charming estate. Design details include hand-drawn botanical illustrations,  portraits of writers and artists, and vintage lighting. Leather and brass accent the zinc-topped bar. And garden florals inspire the room’s soft color palette.

Opposite Coterie is the Library, a quiet spot for guests to sip a drink. It is furnished with rich velvet seating accented in silk fringe and well-stocked bookshelves.

Another new space is Sottovento. A gourmet coffee bar, it serves complimentary made-to-order specialty coffee, tea and drinks every morning.

Other spaces reopening at Four Seasons Hotel Boston are:

  • Aujourd’hui, the second-floor restaurant with floor-to-ceiling windows framing view of the Public Garden;
  • Sanctuary, a quiet, sixth-floor garden terrace;
  • and The Vaults, refreshment pantries located on every guest floor of the hotel.
