Visit this historic and ritzy Boston neighborhood to soak up its classic New England charm as you stroll down cobblestoned, gas-lamp lined streets. Bring your walking shoes, camera, and select a nice day to wander through the hilly neighborhood and check out its exclusive addresses. Louisburg Square, Mt. Vernon street, Chestnut street and the extremely narrow and widely photographed Acorn street make a nice walking path. Make sure to meander down Charles street to poke into boutiques and antique shops, cafes, and restaurants on this quaint shopping street. Don’t forget to catch a glimpse up close of the State House with its beautiful and iconic dome.
Lovely small tranquil park. It has picturesque lake/pond, famous statues (e.g. one of George Washington or Make Way for Ducklings) and many friendly squirrels. Awesome place to walk through or to spend some time.
All our 9 yo could think about this trip was ice skating at Frog Pond. It opened for the season the weekend before we got there. It was a spectacular sunny, 50 degree day and couldn’t have been more picturesque. Everyone had a blast and we didn’t have any falls, bonus. The kids had a snowball fight in the Zamboni...

Charles Street is not the longest street in Boston, but it might be the most picturesque. there are no neon signs, there are gas lamps (They really need to find a way of turning them off during the daylight). In each shop were visited, we were greeted with a friendly smile. even though it was about 20 degrees outside- we...
Food is excellent; small, intimate, warm atmosphere. Staff/service is great.
Wish that there was room for a bar area to sit before dinner, but otherwise there is nothing to complain about. Be advised not full liquor license, so wine, beer, specialty cordials, vodkas etc. but really plenty to choose from.
we have been going to 75 Chestnut for years, small, friendly, good service with good food and not too expensive. A very friendly hostess called Betsy, always makes you feel welcome. a big plus,no loud music, just friendly chatter.
We were in town for a conference and had a group of 11 on a Friday night. We ate in the private Grotto room. The atmosphere was wonderful and our server Ken was outstanding. He made great recommendations and was very attentive to us. He even gave us great tips on local places to go to. The food is more...
First time in Boston on this was a great place to go for a meal we were really pleased with the vibrant atmosphere and we were taken to a table immediately. we were made welcome. it was a good service, the food was excellent and we'd go again.
There are many hotels in Boston, but from now on we plan on staying at the Whitney when we travel there. The room was super clean and classy. We slept well in their very comfortable bed and we loved the walk-in shower with the pebbled, non-slippery floor. We sat on the couch to read every night and we were amazed...
Had dinner here with my partner and the atmosphere is nice the staff super friendly and attentive and the food was delicious. We will be going back. The place was heaving when we were there but it was still enjoyable.
