Rising 61 stories above the thriving Back Bay neighborhood, the all-new Four Seasons Hotel One Dalton Street, Boston is a beacon of modernity in one of America’s most historic cities. With thoughtfully appointed accommodations, a full-floor spa and wellness center including a stunning indoor pool, light-filled event spaces, and the New England debut of the world-renowned Zuma restaurant, it’s both a destination unto itself and a gateway to all that the city has to offer.
“Like the city, everything about this Hotel has a youthful feel,” says General Manager Reed Kandalaft, who has carefully assembled a team dedicated to personalizing every overnight stay, every event and every meal at the new Four Seasons. “It’s all forward thinking, fresh and contemporary at every turn.”
The soaring glass skyscraper – now the city’s third tallest building at 724 feet (220 meters) was designed by Harry Cobb of Pei Cobb Freed & Partners in collaboration with Gary Johnson of Cambridge 7 Associates. Surrounding the elliptical “guitar pick” shaped building are three distinct streetscapes by landscape architect Michael Van Valkenburgh, including a 5,000 square feet (465 square meters) of park adjacent to the building’s grand entrance.
“This is truly a milestone project for Four Seasons,” says Vince Parrotta, President, Hotel Operations – Americas. “We could not have found better partners, like-minded people who share our vision for luxury hospitality, and organizations with the bench strength to make it all come to life.”
With Every Comfort and Convenience Anticipated
The Hotel’s 215 hotel rooms and suites boast floor-to-ceiling windows, with every detail anticipating the needs and wants of modern travelers, from state-of-the-art soundproofing between floors and rooms and precision glazed windows, to at-your-fingertips in room technologies.
Original works from the Hotel’s multi-million dollar art collection curated by Kate Chertavian complement interior design by Bill Rooney of Bill Rooney Studio in every room and suite, as well as public spaces throughout the building.
Dining and Drinking at Four Seasons
Four Seasons Hotel One Dalton Street will be home to the newest location of Zuma, the global sensation dining experience renowned for its informal yet sophisticated twist on a traditional Japanese izakaya. Designed by Noriyoshi Muramatsu of Tokyo-based Studio Glitt, the interiors incorporate the natural elements of earth, fire, water and air. The restaurant will serve contemporary Japanese cuisine from three kitchens: main, sushi counter and robata grill.
Also on-site is One + One, destined to be the go-to choice for power breakfasts with its wall of windows in the heart of Back Bay. The streetfront Trifecta Lobby Bar will offer chic cocktails after work and into the evening, accompanied by a menu of light fare by the Hotel’s Executive Chef Ellis Chong.
An Entire Floor Dedicated to Wellness
The spa and wellness center spans the entire 7th floor of the Hotel, providing a refuge above Boston’s busy streets for Hotel guests, residents and day visitors. The spa itself includes five treatment rooms, with one designed for couples to share the spa experience together. There’s also a salon offering hair, nails and makeup services – a plus for bridal parties celebrating marriage at the hotel, as well as those who just want to look their best every day.
Fitness buffs will love working out on Precor equipment as chosen by Four Seasons partner and celebrity trainer Harley Pasternak, with many machines offering inspiring floor-to-ceiling views, as well as a private yoga and Pilates studio.
The pièce de résistance is the 64 foot (20 meter) lap pool that arcs in concert with the building’s curved windows. Swim laps, relax on a day bed, or curl up in one of the plush chairs next to the windows.
