Boston bound? Four Seasons is prepping to open its latest luxury hotel inside a new 61-story skyscraper in the Back Bay neighborhood. Designed by Henry Cobb of Pei Cobb Freed & Partners in collaboration with Gary Johnson of CambridgeSeven Associates, the building is now the third tallest in the city at 724 feet.
A stand-out amenity will be the full-floor spa, as the entire seventh floor of the hotel is devoted to wellness and health. Decked out with Italian mosaics, the wellness center will offer five treatment rooms including a couple’s suite, locker rooms with steam rooms and rain showers, a gym stocked with Precor equipment with views of the city skyline through floor-to-ceiling windows and a 65-foot lap pool that’s described in the press release as the curved pièce de résistance. What’s more, the spa will have a salon for hair, nail and make-up services.
Another talked-about feature of Four Seasons Hotel One Dalton Street Boston is the restaurant. This will be the New England debut for the popular Zuma restaurant, which got its start in the Knightsbridge area of London in 2002. Other F&B outlets at the hotel will include the Trifecta Lobby Bar and One + One which seeks to woo the “power breakfast” crowd.
The hotel will have 215 guestrooms (including 41 suites), decorated with original works from the multimillion-dollar art collection. Abundant meeting and events space will include a 2,500 sq. ft. ballroom. Reed Kandalaft is the general manager of Four Seasons Hotel One Dalton Street Boston; he’s worked with the upscale hospitality brand since 2008 in tenures at Four Seasons Resort Hualalai, Four Seasons Hotel at The Surf Club, Damascus and Los Angeles.
