The Five-Point Weekend Escape Plan

Reconsider Boston Harbor

Forget about tea parties. The new one-and-a-half mile Rose Kennedy Greenway anchors the city’s revitalized waterfront with luxury hotels and sophisticated restaurants.


1. Where to Stay

A floating suite at The Green Turtle.  

Fairmont Battery Wharf on the Waterfront (from $219) opened its 150 rooms only last December — ask for one with a water view. The patio opens in June.

Cook in your one-bedroom-apartment-style room at the Inn at St. Botolph (from $189). A sister property to XV Beacon, the inn opened in November 2008 as a low-key alternative on the border of South End and Back Bay.

Immerse yourself in the waterfront by booking a suite aboard the Green Turtle (from $245), a floating bed and breakfast. The tugboats churn the harbor by day, but the current is gentle at night.
