The Newbury Boston Update 05/18/21
The Newbury Opens in Back Bay
Construction has concluded on The Newbury and the hotel has opened its doors for business. Located at One Newbury Street in the historic Back Bay, this debut follows a complete re imagining and restoration of the iconic property by Highgate Hotels, a leading real estate and hospitality management company.
Located in Back Bay, Boston's premier shopping and dining destination, and directly across from The Public Garden, this iconic property opened in 1927 as one of the first Ritz Carlton hotels in the United States. Leveraging three world-renowned designers, Highgate meticulously transformed the building into a 286-room hotel, complete with signature dining experiences, 16,000 square feet of stunning event space, and a reimagined entrance plaza on Newbury Street.
"As the stewards of this extraordinary hotel, we are thrilled to introduce The Newbury to Boston," said Mahmood Khimji, Managing Principal and Co-Founder of Highgate Hotels. "We have been singularly focused on honoring the timeless and rich history of the property while incorporating new elements of modern luxury. Thoughtful guest touches complement gracious and luxurious service, which has been a hallmark of the property for nearly a century."
After renovations the hotel now features 211 rooms.
