I live in Plymouth, just an hour away, but was going to be in-town for a conference for several days and decided to splurge and stay at a hotel. A friend suggested the Lenox and as it turned out it's just a few blocks from the conference center, which was very convenient.
I booked a corner room with a working fireplace on the 11th floor, Room 1108. It was large and very cozy with a comfortable desk and great internet connection.
Service at this hotel is exceptional. Everyone is genuinely friendly and accommodating. My only complaint was that the bed wasn't comfortable. I think I was expecting it to be a bit more cushy as I'd read somewhere that they were pillow tops. I don't think the bed in this room is a pillow-top. I like a firm bed, but this seemed a little worn and too firm. Only other glitch was the room service breakfast wasn't as good as what I usually enjoy in a hotel. Eggs and english muffin were cold by the time they got to me.
I had a wonderful dinner one night at the little bar at City Table. Sirloin and mashed potatoes and some kind of delicious bread pudding. Also had the tuna tartare at the other bar in the hotel, which is a very fun atmosphere, all dark lights and black and white photos give it a noir feeling.
If you stay here and like steak, I'd also suggest going across the street for dinner or lunch at Abe & Louie's, my favorite steak house in Boston. Be sure to get the six layer chocolate cake if you do...it's to die for. First time I went there, while waiting for our dinner, we saw at least six orders of the cake delivered to tables nearby and knew it had to be good...it's beyond amazing.
I'd definitely stay at The Lenox again. It's a very cozy, and pretty boutique hotel with exceptional service and attention to detail.
