Check out these stunning photos from Boston’s newest luxury hotel


As an architect, Tom appreciates good looking structures, and we both like to point out places that are really beautiful inside. This pictorial appeared recently on Boston.com about Boston’s newest luxury hotel

The Godfrey Hotel brings a modern touch to two classic Downtown Crossing buildings.  



Hotel Godfrey
If you’re looking to plan a staycation, you just got one more option. The restored Amory and Blake buildings are home to the new 242-room luxury Godfrey Hotel, which opened its doors to the public for the first time on Wednesday. It’s the second Godfrey location—the original debuted in Chicago in 2014.
Boston rolled out the red carpet for the opening: Mayor Marty Walsh gave a speech at the ribbon cutting ceremony Wednesday morning, along with Greater Boston Convention and Visitors Bureau President and CEO Patrick Moscaritolo, and Boston BID President and CEO Rosemarie Sansone.

In addition to supporting the heads of those who sleep on its pillows, the Godfrey, owned by Oxford Hotels and Resorts, is also supporting local community organizations. The hotel donated $25,000 to The Wang YMCA of Chinatown, Boston Asian: Y.E.S., Kwong Kow Chinese School Afterschool Program, and Asian American Civic Association Work Force Development.
The party continued Wednesday night, when the new spot hosted guests for drinks and food, provided by the hot new restaurant Yvonne’s, which is just around the corner from the Godfrey. The party also featured a live DJ set, and offered guests a sneak preview of the new George Howell Coffee café that will open in the hotel later this spring.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
