The Mandarin Oriental transformed the Boylston Street landscape when it went up in late 2008 and brought with it a modernized sense of design and luxury to an area historically known for serving Boston’s most affluent residents.
This five-star, award-winning hotel opened to much fanfare and continues to serve as one of the premiere destinations for the elite. With 136 rooms, 12 spacious suites and a 2,600 square foot Presidential Suite, as well as a full compliment of amenities from exquisite dining options, spa and function rooms, and connections to two boutique shopping arcades, there is no question that the Mandarin Oriental is situated in the center of things.
When constructed, the developers included 50 units that would make up the ultra luxury condominium residences of the hotel. Twelve of these units include private roof decks with decorative tile, offering fantastic views of the city and everything from personalized room service to housecleaning.
Designed for customization to suit each tenant, the units include marble foyers, specialty hardwood floors throughout, Juliette balconies and spacious ceilings. Additionally, new residents can request specific wood accents to adorn such things as fireplaces, bookshelves and ceiling moldings. Given such level of choice to the buyer, the hotel prides itself on the fact that each individual home is unique and set apart from the others in the building.
Access to the residences is through a private elevator from a direct entrance on Boylston Street. Other features include central heating and cooling, a full size chef’s kitchen with matching appliances, private dressing rooms, and lavish bathrooms with imported tile.
Each unit comes with at least one garage parking space and valet services, in addition to the full array of amenities offered to every guest at the hotel. These include concierge services, dry cleaning, use of all the resort’s facilities and preferred reservations at any Mandarin Oriental location worldwide.
With so much to offer, its no surprise the Mandarin Oriental is one of Boston’s leading destinations for the elite. For more information on these or other properties, please contact agent Chris Remmes at 617-398-0018 or www.chrisremmes.com.
