There is a safe-deposit box available at the front desk, as well as luggage storage. Bicycles rentals are nearby. For the little travelers, there is a babysitting or childcare (surcharge) service. The lobby features white marble walls accented with emerald trimmings and Persian rugs. Uni, the adjoining sashimi bar, serves Japanese cuisine featuring Kobe beef, tempura, and sushi. The hotel's concierge is available to assist guests with arrangements from dinner reservations to Red Sox tickets or tours of Boston's Freedom Trail. Past the mirrors, brass banisters and glass chandelier of the lobby, a pair of ornate brass elevators carries guests to their accommodations. This is a smoke-free property.
