Boston’s historic Back Bay has a lot to offer including the only downtown Hilton. This hotel welcomes local (and destination) weddings, corporate meetings, and special events with open arms. It’s premiere offering includes immediate proximity to shopping on Newbury Street, Fenway Park, Symphony Hall, Gardner Museum, and Copley Place just to name a few.
I would wholeheartedly recommend this venue for those looking for an “outside the box” experience. And in saying that, I’d like to point out that (in contrast) the footprint of this hotel is triangular in shape. This fact lends to unique angular architecture that is tastefully reflected inside both inside and out. With a new refresh at the beginning of this year, vibrant colorful interior design and carpeting has been installed throughout. While this may seem a little bright to some, keep in mind that most of it will be covered with furniture and a large dance floor during events. From a photographic point of view it can actually be very complimentary to any event with a nicely lit environment.
Another shift worth mentioning is that most of the decor is moving in an increasing environmentally conscious direction. With the inclusion of reusable tabletops, Hilton Boston Back Bay is taking a responsible stand in support of a cleaner and healthier world.
The final (and possibly most important) component that cause this hotel to be in high demand is the staff itself. From top to bottom, everyone that I’ve interacted with are courteous, helpful, professional, and friendly. It’s the kind of staff that just makes you feel good when you’re interacting with them. You can book a private tour in consideration of your next Boston wedding or special event.
