Given the recent growth in Boston’s Ladder District, it was only a matter of time before the 22-story Hyatt Regency Boston got a face-lift. And what a face-lift it is: The $10.5 million overhaul includes stylin’ new carpeting, curtains, fixtures, and colors in all 500 guestrooms, as well as the addition of the 1,900-square-foot Nantucket Room to the hotel’s meeting space. When you get tired of marveling at the updates, relax at the indoor swimming pool or try the Eucalyptus Steam Room.
From $149. One Avenue de Lafayette, (617) 912-1234, www.hyattregencyboston.com
