Still known to locals as the "New Ritz" to distinguish it from Boston's original Ritz-Carlton (now the Taj) around the corner, the Ritz-Carlton, Boston Common opened in 2001 and underwent an $11 million renovation in 2008. Another spruce-up in 2011 added a cozy U-shaped lobby bar with private alcoves and a fireplace, and revamped the restaurant, now called American Bistro, which serves small plates and local and seasonal dishes. The 193 rooms (43 of these are suites) are done up in cheery hues of apricot, blue, and yellow, with hardwood furniture and flat-screen TVs. Check out the original contemporary New England art in the public spaces (there are self-guided exhibition brochures in the rooms). Despite the name, the Ritz is not on the Common, but some rooms do have a view.—Jon Marcus
