The W Boston Hotel joins 234 hotel rooms and 111 condominiums in a 26-story tower that began build-out of Boston's High Spine concept. Ground floor lobby, bar, restaurant, Bliss Spa and retail bring vibrancy and life to this formerly empty section of city, demonstrating how urban hotels on tight sites can resist the common practice of elevating the lobby off the street. The tower is a beacon for Boston's theater district.
