Excitement is mounting for the opening of a 35-story luxury Boston hotel with a sky lobby, the first of its kind in the city.
Forbes Travel Guide on Monday published a list of the 40 most anticipated hotel openings of 2022 and included Raffles Boston Back Bay Hotel & Residences. The hotel is set to open later this year.
“For our annual list of top luxury hotel openings, we scoured the globe to find properties of all types, from high-end brands to boutique gems, with top-notch amenities, striking facilities and coveted locales,” the publication wrote.
Here’s what Forbes Travel Guide wrote about the hotel:
“Raffles will unveil a 35-story LEED Gold structure in its first Americas venture. It will possess memorable features like a curved oak grand staircase that spirals through a three-story sky lobby. Also in the works are a speakeasy and a guests-only spa with an indoor pool.”
