Boston's Fairmont Battery Wharf Opens With Special Rates
After a prolonged construction period, the Fairmont Battery Wharf has finally opened on a spit of land at the fringe of the North End. The five-building complex makes its debut with an introductory offer called the Only One Way Winter Package: reserve two nights at the hotel and get the second night free. Just ask about it when booking your stay.
Rates for this package, which requires a non-refundable one-night deposit at the time of booking, start at $299 per night (not including tax or gratuity) through April 15. According to one Daily Traveler who recently stayed there, it's not too much to ask for plush rooms with satiny soft sheets, massive flat-screen televisions with complimentary movie selections, and posh Miller Harris bath amenities. While a bit removed from the city center, there are world-class cannolis within walking distance and a convenient water taxi to Logan Airport. And Guy Martin, of the Michelin-starred Paris restaurant Le Grand Vefour, presides over the intimate Sensing restaurant.
