[PHOTO_213129]The Colonnade was once a shabby excuse for a Boston hotel, but has become a sought-after destination for boutique hotel enthusiasts! After a $25-million renovation, The Colonnade Boston Hotel is a modern oasis that strays from conventional decor and favors a more modern, stylish look. Situated in the Back Bay, on the edge of the South End, the Colonnade is in a prime location for play during your Boston stay!
Almost across from the Prudential Center and Copley Place, shoppers will love the ease at which they can carry their bags back to their room, while sports fans will like that they can easily walk to Fenway Park. Lunching on Newbury is no problem either as it's just a few blocks away, so you can be sure that a sidewalk table in the sun, prime for people-watching, will be a simple task to snag. And when you're itching to get out at night, but not wanting to go so far you'll need to use your car, you're close to many favored watering holes that will allow for an easy stroll home after a cocktail or two.
Summertime sets the Colonnade apart as its award-winning rooftop pool becomes a hot spot for hotel guests and Boston residents alike. The rooftop pool draws quite a crowd of those looking to be part of this ultra cool scene (think Hollywood poolside lounging on the east coast). Guests may use the pool at no extra charge, but for those staying elsewhere, be prepared to pay a hefty sum for your poolside perch: $50/day (Monday-Friday only).
