The NEWBURY Boston C A P T I V A T I N G L U X U R Y I N B A C K B A Y

Boston is well known for its rich history and people with their exquisite tastes in luxury shopping and dining. Newly renovated, The Newbury Boston by Highgate is a testament to this New England culture. Located at One Newbury Street, in the affluent shopping and dining neighborhood of Back Bay and across from Long’s Jewelers Rolex Boutique, this historic hotel opened its doors to guests on May 18, 2021. And from day one, The Newbury has received nothing but warm and welcoming praise from all of Boston, including many of Long’s clients. “It was clear that we needed to have a thoughtful approach to really renovating and restoring this iconic hotel,” said Managing Director Carlos Bueno. “As you know, it’s a beloved landmark here in the city. So every aspect of our design was heavily scrutinized.

We’re very fortunate that Mahmood Khimji, our principal at Highgate, was committed to this vision from the get-go. So he provided all of the resources for this ambitious transformation.” From the entryway to the guest suites to the event spaces — every detail of The Newbury Boston was carefully curated and planned. Heritage architecture and residential comfort envelope each exquisite guest room and suite, while stunning contemporary art, dramatic window awnings, and an elegant landscape terrace welcome all into the public spaces. There’s truly nothing quite like The Newbury Boston, and you can count on that warm and welcoming feeling the moment you walk through the doors. For locals and guests, the Back Bay is the cultural hub of the city; the A-block where many prestigious brands, like Chanel, Burberry,

and Rolex by Long’s Jewelers thrive, providing a luxurious yet historical atmosphere. The Newbury ties it all together, providing guests with lavish hotel accommodations from local vendors. During your stay, you’ll enjoy things like afternoon tea at The Newbury Salon, a state-of-the-art fitness center, Willow bath amenities by Byredo, and so much more! “The experience is really authentic to the destination, and centered and delivered around storytelling.We have some strong collaborations with local partners,” Bueno said. “For example, our books in the library and in our Corner House presidential Suite were curated by both the Boston Public Library and Trident Booksellers [& Cafe]. We’ve also worked with the Robert McCloskey estate to produce beautiful tea service by Bernardaud featuring the beloved classic, Make Way for Ducklings.”
