If Alice and the white rabbit created a hotel together, the Ames Hotel just might be their brain child. The mix of Old- and New-World styles makes for a setting that is funky and fun, without the pretension high-style hotels often exude. Inside Beacon Hill’s historic Ames building, vibrant furniture, Romanesque arched windows, and vintage fireplaces fill 114 luxurious rooms. And while there are plenty of restaurants in the surrounding neighborhood, Chef Mark Goldberg at the hotel’s Woodward Restaurant makes just the kind of brunch we want to dig into—fluffy sourdough pancakes packed with blueberries, and seared tuna with fennel and preserved lemon.
