Newbury Street is Boston’s most elegant shopping area, and this inn is a perfect fit—without the designer prices. The Newbury Guest House consistently sells out, especially in the summer and fall, so try to book as soon as you lock up your travel plans. The accommodations, in a trio of brick 19th-century townhouses, are comfortable and cozy but not cramped. The well-kept guest rooms have pale walls and white linens with dark furniture and accents. In the largest units, bay windows face busy Newbury Street; this isn’t an issue in cold weather, but in the summer, light sleepers may be happier with a room overlooking the alley.
