History buffs appreciate both the location and original architecture of the AMES in the Byzantine-Romanesque Ames building. Built in 1893 as headquarters for the Ames farm equipment empire, the boutique hotel showcases mosaic tile ceilings, ornate staircases, carved marble fireplaces and dramatic arched windows. Designer David Rockwell added clean modern finishes and eye-catching decor. Now on the National Register of Historic Places, the hotel neighbors Faneuil Hall, Beacon Hill, Quincy Market, Boston Common and Boston Harbor.


Ten room categories offer a tailored experience in 114 rooms at AMES. Clean lines and an uncluttered minimalist environment mix with 12- to 14-foot ceilings, a flat-screen HDTV, iPod docking station and a mini bar. Enjoy Molton Brown bath products in the attractive glass-and-marble, walk-in shower with rain showerhead. Suites offer superior city views and more ornate historical details including original fireplaces.
