No trip to Bean Town would be complete without mentioning the historically famous Freedom Trail, a 2.5 mile red brick trail through Boston’s historic neighborhoods that tells the story of the American Revolution. From the Old North Church to Faneuil Hall, and through resonant burying grounds, visit the temples and landmarks of the Revolutionary Era. WIT would love to map out your family’s trip through history with all the details handled by us so you and the family can enjoy the ride.
Sitting proudly in what was Boston’s historic Federal Reserve Bank and after a multimillion-dollar complete transformation, The Langham, Boston will reopen its doors as the city’s premier historical hotel in early 2021, delivering the impeccable service that the British luxury hotel brand is known for across four continents. The Langham, Boston will reopen with 312 lavish rooms and suites that will be the embodiment of the brand’s tailored and classic touches. Allow WIT to secure a Langham Club level room for a refined, private club setting with exclusive perks and food and beverage service throughout the day.
The family can learn the story of the infamous Boston Tea Party, a scene from 1773 that changed the course of American history. Visitors to the city are invited to step back in time and explore a museum dedicated to this notorious episode at the interactive Boston Tea Party Museum where you’ll meet live characters, see authentically restored tea ships, and learn about the people and events leading up to the American Revolution.
Mandarin Oriental Boston
As we move around town, in the Back Bay neighborhood, is Mandarin Oriental Boston, where guests experience Asian aesthetics balanced with classic New England elegance. With 136 guestrooms and 12 suites, Mandarin boasts the most spacious average room size in Boston, so it’s no wonder the hotel is a recipient of both Forbes Five Star and AAA Five Diamond awards, and has the only Forbes Five Star spa in Massachusetts. Block some special time at the spa with a Device Free Wellness Retreat. Surrender your phone and get ready to rebalance your lifestyle with personal training, yoga, pilates, and a full body scrub followed by a Himalayan salt stone massage.
Four Seasons Hotel One Dalton Street
Also, in the exclusive Back Bay area is Four Seasons Hotel One Dalton Street, Boston. The hotel sits in the heart of Boston’s thriving arts and music scene near Symphony Hall, steps from Copley Square and the city’s best shopping on Boylston and Newbury Streets. Housed in a sleek, 61-story skyscraper, the 215 rooms and suites offer natural light with floor to ceiling windows and the epitome of contemporary luxury.

XV Beacon Hotel
Beacon Hill is undoubtedly the neighborhood one thinks of when they conjure up images of Boston: cobblestone streets, Federal and Greek Revival architecture, the Common and the Public Garden. You are literally dropped into history when you visit this posh and charming neighborhood. Situated atop historic Beacon Hill, is XV Beacon Hotel. We love the Beacon as it ticks all the boxes for the most discerning travelers. Located near the Financial District, State House, Newbury Street shopping, Faneuil Hall, the Theatre District and a variety of museums, boutique XV Beacon offers up 63 spacious rooms and suites all with fireplaces.
The newest property in Beacon Hill is The Whitney, that opened its doors in June 2019. Located on the corner of Charles and Cambridge Streets, this 65-room boutique hotel was named for Henry Melville Whitney, a prominent Boston industrialist and one-time owner of the site. The Whitney presents sophisticated comfort in a classic Boston brick townhouse. Only 11 miles from Harvard, your future Ivy Leaguers must see Arnold Arboretum, Harvard’s impressive tree sanctuary. Here is an excellent spot for nature walks, picnics, and other upstanding outdoor activities. For the bohemian child, we love The Rose Kennedy Greenway, a 15 acre park that takes you through the heart of the city, past murals, interactive installations, and seven different water fountains. The Harbor Fog Sculpture emits mist and noise when it detects movement. Food trucks line a portion of the walk for noshing along the way. Boston has something for everyone in the family!
