Take a Look inside Boston's Newest Luxe Guest House

By Kaitlynn Miller | March 8, 2018 | Lifestyle

Situated in Boston’s coveted Back Bay neighborhood, the newly renovated No.284 will be opening its doors to guests starting March 14. Complete with 23 custom-designed guests rooms, a serene urban courtyard, and elegant library, this luxe guest lodging house is perfect for visitors on a weekend getaway, or Bostonians in need of a relaxing staycation.


“No. 284 is ideal for business and leisure travelers wanting to feel at home, with the luxury of personalized service,” said Richard Coppola, manager at No. 284. “This is a great opportunity for visitors from both near and far to experience the charm of quintessential Back Bay living for an evening, weekend or long-term stay.”


With renovations led by renowned architect, Guy Grassi, you will find a design that pays homage to the building’s roots—which date back to the 1800’s—but also looks forward to the future with modern features. Inside, Interior Designer Sharon Cameron Lawn has filled the space with bespoke furnishings and luxurious finishes to bring a contemporary warmth to the building. However, one of the most unique and exclusive aspects of No.284 is their curated art collection, which offers guests a classic, academic collection reflecting the history and transformation of the property over time.


“Similar to the architecture and interior design at No. 284, the art progressively modernizes with each increasing floor,” said Kate Chertavian, No. 284’s art curator and owner of Kate Chertavian Fine Art. “The ground floor begins with prints from Boston-born American Impressionist Childe Hassam, and gradually transitions to Abstract Expressionism and Contemporary work. For the grand finale, an iconic Marilyn offset lithograph by Andy Warhol hangs atop the staircase landing preceding the penthouse suite.”


Just steps away from some of Boston’s best dining, shopping, and attractions, we can’t think of a better place to stay for a weekend away in the city. 284 Commonwealth Ave., 617-603-0084
