Boston’s sophisticated urban waterfront retreat
Located in Boston’s vibrant North End, in what is quickly becoming the city’s chicest neighborhood, Fairmont Battery Wharf is a sophisticated waterfront retreat and the idea local for exploring Boston or just relaxing in an urban resort environment.
If a leisurely weekend escape is planned, Fairmont Battery Wharf is the perfect location. A newly opened exhale spa creates a sanctuary where guests can enjoy luxurious spa treatments or challenge themselves with a Core Fusion, exhale’s proprietary fitness experience, class or yoga practice. Located on the Boston Harborwalk, the hotel is along some of Boston ‘s mostly beautiful walking paths, all of which offer stunning harbor views or delve deeper into history with the Battery Wharf Maritime Museum, a series of exhibits located on the property. If it’s an afternoon of relaxation you’re looking for, just lounge with a book in one of the hotel’s Adirondack chairs near the harbor.
Beyond this urban resort is a rich and exciting cultural experience. The Museum of Fine Arts Boston offers a world class collection of art and just debuted its new Art of the Americas Wing. To complement to the MFA, Boston’s newest museum, The Institute of Contemporary Art, located on the waterfront and within walking distance of the hotel, offers a rotating collection of works from contemporary artists. Institutions like the John F. Kennedy Library and Museum provide insight into the city’s most compelling historic and political figures. History comes alive just steps from the hotel along the Freedom Trail, a 2.5 mile brick walk that connects the past to the present with sites and museums that shaped the birth of a nation. And for those who want to explore the world of water and marine conservation, the New England Aquarium is less than 10 minutes from the hotel.
Active guests will appreciate the availability of BMW bikes, or excursions with Urban Adventures, a company providing bicycling tours around the city. Or get out on the harbor and explore one or more of the numerous Boston Harbor islands, some of Boston ‘s hidden gems.
After a long day of sight seeing, the North End is the perfect place to go for a romantic, Italian dinner. The North End, often referred to as “Little Italy”, is famous for its selection of bakeries, eateries and Old-world feeling. Fairmont Battery Wharf offers its own dining experience at Aragosta, a newly opened Italian Mediterranean restaurant featuring an outdoor terrace which is perfect for lingering over a bottle of wine or pitcher of sangria.
