Enjoying the magic of winter

After a day of sightseeing and battling Boston’s winter, a cozy fireplace is a perfect way to get toasty. Since fireplaces in rooms are not all that common, you may need to specifically check before booking a room if you’re keen on it. Also if you are travelling in early winter, you may want to inquire if the fire service is available since many hotels only offer it during certain months.
