What will $15,000 buy you in Boston? In-state tuition for a year at UMass Boston. Roughly 5,000 medium iced coffees from Dunkin' Donuts, or one every day until 2032. Perhaps even a pair tickets behind home plate at Fenway Park for a World Series game, if the Red Sox make it this year.
That, or you could plunk down $15,000 for a one-night stay in the most expensive hotel suite in Boston.
Earlier this month, the Boston Harbor Hotel unveiled the John Adams Presidential Suite. The two-bedroom, 4,800-square-foot space features a 20-foot-high domed ceiling with a crystal chandelier, an open-air terrace overlooking the harbor, and a private elevator. Butler service is available upon request.

Here’s how a hotel press release described the luxury suite, which was designed by Smith Firestone Associates:
"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, freestanding 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."
Rosie Feinberg, designer and principal at Smith Firestones, said in a statement that the design was inspired by "the rich history and the unique architecture of Boston, with a color palette that compliments the suite’s magnificent views of Boston Harbor.”
