This unobtrusive new high-rise right off Newbury Street is steps from the T (Boston's subway) and many of the best restaurants and attractions—although a dedicated hotel car will take you anywhere within two miles. From the moment you enter the gleaming lobby, with its lovely Asian-style paintings, sculptures, and tapestries, you're attended to by a platoon of employees. With almost preternatural skill, they handle everything from getting shoes resoled within an hour to tracking down a lost glove. The spacious rooms blend an Art Deco aesthetic with Asian flair: burnished gold and seafoam green textiles set against glossy wood furnishings with black inlay. Every detail has been carefully considered, from the desk stocked with paperclips to the soft leather boxes that keep the hair dryer and other toiletries tucked away. At times, the minimalism can be a bit much: It took a few tries to find the light switches, and the phones are appealingly simple but would benefit from a direct line to the front desk. The buzzy lounge, M Bar, does a brisk business with young professionals, and Asana serves refined Asian-inspired dishes in a gorgeous dining room with picture windows framing the street. At the rear of the hotel, a corridor links it to the Prudential Center and a handful of exceptional restaurants.
