Concierge.com's insider take:

One of Boston's oldest hotels, opened in 1900, the Lenox underwent an extensive 2003 restoration that modernized the bar and restaurant while respecting historic touches. The 214 rooms have heavy brocades, brass chandeliers, and Italian marble bathrooms (many also have working fireplaces). The renovation also paid particular attention to the thoroughly modern initiative to go green by minimizing waste, offsetting carbon emissions (the rooms were the first in the world to be certified climate-neutral), and using hybrids for car service. The area around the Lenox is also coming into modern times, thanks to the arrival of flashy shops, salons, and restaurants on nearby Boylston Street. Or head to the hotel's City Bar, a popular late-night hangout for the local club set. But skip the faux-Irish pub: It's nowhere near as good as any of the real Irish pubs you'll find all over Boston.—Jon Marcus
