Hotel of the week
“This is a place where I want to spend more time,” said Christopher Muther in The Boston Globe. In the buzzing Downtown Crossing neighborhood, two early 1900s buildings— one Gothic revival, one neoclassical—have been fused to create the 242- room Godfrey, named by Travel + Leisure as one of the country’s coolest new hotels. My room was small but chic—plaid headboards and heather-gray carpets. But most guests will likely rather spend their time in the hotel’s bustling artisanal coffee shop, its beautiful lobby bar, or its “dazzling and sexy” Peruvian-Asian restaurant.
