Here’s what Journey + Leisure wrote, in aspect, about The Langham, Boston:

“Boston’s Langham resort could be forgiven for obtaining a specified stuffiness. Established in the straight-laced Fiscal District of a quite common city, it occupies a century-previous Renaissance Revival landmark created as the community HQ of the Federal Reserve Bank. But this resort — which debuted its two-calendar year, reportedly $150 million redo last year — is anything at all but stuffy. Rather, it playfully re-spins the record of its storied setting. Delicate, cheeky references to banking abound: carpets and pillows motivated by the style and design of the greenback invoice, nailhead aspects recalling coins or vault doors, and metallic accents resembling gold bars. At the Fed lobby lounge, New England classics get a kicky reboot (lobster mac & cheese, anybody?), when the drink menu attributes a gin, rye, and beer made exclusively for the lodge.”

But you’ll locate excess attraction at the Claremont, a 139-12 months-old Mount Desert Island establishment which is freshly gleaming after a 2021 overhaul. In the environmentally friendly-shuttered most important making, a lounge clad in Sister Parish wallpaper is the entry place for Minor Fern, the tony resort restaurant, and Harry’s Bar, a moody salon in which paintings of sea captains glower down as you sip your gimlet.”
