If your definition of a good city break includes restaurants, entertainment, and shopping bags you’ve come to the right place. Housed in a pair of Gothic-revival buildings The Godfrey offers that rare combination of character, great service and a plum location.

The Godfrey is a sound choice for visitors who like a smart address at the heart of the action. You’re a dollar-bill’s shake from shopping district, within stumbling distance of bars and for the more culturally inclined, the city’s opera house and historic Freedom Trail are minutes away. The Godfrey is a contemporary and stylish refurbishment of two listed buildings dating to 1908 and 1904 and pairs the Gothic exterior with creative interior features and 21st century comforts. The stylish, good-sized rooms benefit from high ceilings and are cosied up by low-key greys and purples, crisp Frette linen and a dash of tartan. Bathrooms are superb and corner rooms take in the hustle and bustle of Downtown Crossing. For food and drink hotel guests have access to two Boston gems – the street-facing George Howell’s coffee bar and Ruka: a buzzy, imaginatively dressed restaurant serving knock-’em-dead cocktails and a Japanese-Peruvian fusion menu that includes a mouth-watering crispy rock shrimp and Lima-style fried calamari. No wonder we think The Godfrey is city-break heaven.

Locally Paid Fees & Taxes: Expect to pay approximately $41 per room per night for hotel resort fees and local taxes.

It’s hard to imagine a more convenient location from which to explore historical Boston on foot, than the Hyatt Centric. Just a stone’s throw from historical Faneuil Hall, you’re never more a couple of minutes from a must-see city attraction.

The swanky Fifteen Beacon has all the trappings of an upscale stay: the services of Clef’s d’or trained concierges, sunken jacuzzi baths and a fourth-century Italian mosaic gracing its wine cellar. Its location on Beacon Hill is the cherry on top.
