Yet the centerpiece of our breakfast is the Fruit Medley - an elegant arrangement of the freshest organic strawberries, blackberries, raspberries, blueberries, grapes, bananas, cantaloupe and honeydew melons. Breakfast will be delivered to you room in the morning any time between 7:30am and 10:00am. Each room includes a full set of plates, bowls, silverware, coffee cups, tea cups, tea kettle, juice glasses and wine glasses! Put on a soft terrycloth robe, set out the dishes, and enjoy breakfast in front of the fire.

Beacon Hill is the old, aristocratic neighborhood in Boston. It is filled with red-brick sidewalks, street lamps still lit by gas flames, hidden gardens and perfectly preserved Victorian architecture. Charles Street itself is known for its antiques, boutiques and romantic restaurants. It is also in the center of the city, with the Boston Common, the Freedom Trail, Public Garden, Esplanade, Faneuil Hall, Museum of Science, Back Bay, Newbury Street, the Theatre District, Chinatown and Downtown Crossing's classic shopping district all within a 5-10 minute walk. A quick ride on the nearby subway will take you to Harvard, MIT, Boston University, Boston College, the Museum of Fine Arts, the eclectic Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, and the John F. Kennedy Library. We truly enjoy the best location in the city!

A Brief History of 94 Charles Street
The Inn was originally built as a single family townhouse in 1860 by the Mount Vernon Proprietors. The three men who composed this enterprise, James Mason, Harrison Otis Grey and John Greenleaf, were successful neighborhood businessmen who thought the Back Bay area was perfect for developing the homes of the next generations of Bostonians and used 94-96 Charles Street townhouses as “model homes”. Although originally conceived as a four year project as a model home, the recession following the American Civil War slowed sales and the Back Bay development took seven years to sell out. 94 Charles Street was largely un-renovated over the next 140 years, until it was substantially re-invented starting January 12, 1999 and completed January 15, 2000, maximizing the original detail but completely upgrading its systems into a modern luxury nine room inn.

Our rates range from $225 to $375 depending on the season, day of the week, and the specific room. Rates are lower Sunday-Thursday than they are on Friday & Saturday nights. High season is May through October, and low season is November through April.
