Boston Harbor Hotel Introduces the John Adams Presidential Suite Inside the Property’s Iconic Rotunda

Boston’s most luxurious suite debuts with custom five-star amenities, private elevator, and breathtaking views of Boston Harbor

The Boston Harbor Hotel, Boston’s only Forbes five-star waterfront property, is thrilled to debut the exquisite John Adams Presidential Suite. The stunning two-bedroom private suite brings a new level of luxury to Boston with grand views of Boston Harbor, magnificent accommodations, and personalized service and amenities beyond compare.

Located inside Boston Harbor Hotel’s iconic rotunda, often referred to as the gateway to the city, the John Adams Presidential Suite boasts 4,800 square feet of the most luxurious living space the city has to offer. Guests of the John Adams Presidential Suite will be welcomed by land or sea to their unforgettable accommodations, featuring an exclusive private entrance and non-stop elevator for total privacy. A custom stone-inlaid foyer leads guests into the open floor plan, where 20-foot floor-to-ceiling windows usher in an abundance of natural light and unparalleled ocean views. A 1,000 square foot private open air-terrace features panoramic views of Boston Harbor, equipped with ample outdoor seating, custom sound system, and outdoor heating. With the option to add one or two additional adjoining guestrooms, the extravagant suite welcomes the company of up to eight adults.

Designed by the award-winning luxury design firm Smith Firestone Associates, high-end finishes meet the eye at every turn and reflect the natural beauty of the hotel’s premier waterfront location on the marina at Rowes Wharf. The sophisticated design seamlessly blends classic and contemporary elements with soothing natural hues and refined materials for a space that is uniquely Bostonian. Design highlights include a brilliant glass-domed ceiling in the main living area, offering exclusive views of the rotunda’s unique architectural design, impeccably finished with a custom handcrafted chandelier boasting over 1,200 crystals. The luxurious master bedroom features Hermès décor and lush Frette Doppio Adjour linens with a breathtaking en-suite bath adorned with Carrara marble, double vanity, free standing soaking tub overlooking Boston Harbor, separate rain shower with three shower heads, exclusive BVLGARI amenities, and a private dressing room complete with his and her closets.

“Every element of this truly remarkable suite was designed with the guest in mind to create the most welcoming yet luxurious suite imaginable,” says Rosie Feinberg, designer and principal at Smith Firestones Associates. “From the finishes on the authentic hardwood floors to the custom-designed chandelier and the handcrafted tiles in the master bath, we used only the finest materials available to create a space that felt indisputably residential while maintaining the highest level of luxury that Boston Harbor Hotel is known for. Our primary design inspiration for the John Adams Presidential Suite was the rich history and the unique architecture of Boston with a color palette that compliments the suite’s magnificent views of Boston Harbor.”

The one-of-a-kind suite is equipped with a modern kitchen and butler’s pantry complete Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances, a private bar stocked with top-shelf liquors and fine wines, and a serene dining area with seating for eight. A private media room features wall controls for the theatre-quality surround sound system and 93-inch flat screen television. Bluetooth equipped tablets throughout the suite give guests full control of the state-of-the-art sound system, with built-in speakers in all indoor and outdoor living spaces.  

Upon booking, John Adams Presidential Suite guests will have a dedicated personal concierge available from pre-arrival through the duration of the stay. The suite includes private transportation to and from Boston’s Logan airport, with service directly to the private entrance at 30 Rowes Wharf. Amenities also include butler service (available upon request), complimentary breakfast, personalized liquor and wine selection, private internet, complimentary pressing, fresh floral arrangements, and a personalized welcome amenity.
