About The Newbury Boston

Saturday dates in 2021 available.

The Newbury Boston, located in the city’s Back Bay, is currently undergoing a transformative renovation and restoration. Originally opened in 1927, this iconic Boston landmark will debut in 2020. The property will be re-imagined with a thoughtful new floor plan, dramatic public spaces, 286 redesigned guestrooms (including 90 suites), stunning event spaces and new food and beverage experiences, including a rooftop restaurant and the restoration of the beloved Street Bar.

Residential in feel, each of The Newbury’s 286 guest rooms and suites will incorporate a calming color palette and tactile materials. Rooms will be appointed with hand-selected, richly textured furnishings and original artwork, along with amenities exclusively curated for guests.

The Newbury Boston will offer 16,000 square feet of dramatic and flexible event space which will be beautifully renovated and updated with modern functionality, providing an ideal setting for meetings and celebrations overlooking The Public Garden.

In addition to the event space, the new food and beverage experience includes the restoration of The Street Bar and the addition of a Library Lounge, available exclusively to hotel guests. The seasonal rooftop space will be converted into a year-round restaurant, operated by Major Food Group, a leading hospitality and restaurant company.

Our experienced wedding planners will help orchestrate every detail of your celebration to create a seamless experience from start to finish.

    When it comes to beautiful old school elegance and outstanding service, you can't beat The Taj. We visited no less than a dozen Boston venues for our daughter's wedding. A friend in the wedding business advised us that we could look and compare but in the end we would be happiest with The Taj. He was so right. Emily Conroy, our event manager, over saw every detail so we did not need a 'day-of' planner. She had great suggestions along the way and was always available to answer questions. The staff anticipated all of our needs and our hotel guests felt totally cared for, including elderly family who needed extra TLC. The cake, designed on site combining some of our Pinterest ideas, was spectacular, and like the dinner, delicious! With photos in the Public Garden, a short walk to Arlington Street Church, a six day honeymoon stay at another Taj property, it really was spectacular and a very good value as compared to other top hotel venues in the city.

    Our ceremony was at the Old South Meeting House. We really wanted to show our guests the beautiful contrast of old Boston and new Boston, so the modern black and white roof space with city views was perfect for our reception. The venue was initially more than we wanted to spend, but we booked a Friday and it was honestly the best decision we could have made. The Taj exceeded our expectations on every level!

    We were lucky enough to have Alyson Levine as our event manager. We cannot say enough nice things about Alyson! Alyson was always warm very responsive and punctual with responding to any questions. I got sick the week of the wedding and after speaking with her on the phone with what little voice I had left, she immediately sent chicken noodle soup and tea to our suite. She took such good care of us and is awesome at her job.

    The food was amazing! We were spoiled rotten at our tasting in March. We highly recommend the miniature lobster club, tuna tartar and baby lamb chop with mint glaze hors d’oeuvres - our guests are still talking about them! We chose the green and white asparagus risotto as our first course, and then selected steak and the chilean sea bass for our entrees with a cheese cake bar for dessert. Everything tasted incredible and was cooked to perfection! I had many industry friends at our wedding, all of whom raved about the venue and service.

    Our suite was amazing. The night of our wedding we came back to our room to find red rose petals on our bed with notes from our family, a bottle of champagne, chocolate covered strawberries and a sweet note from Alyson. The room block was fantastic, we were so excited that the majority of our guests wanted to stay at the Taj with us.

    Unfortunately we can only give the Taj 5 stars, they honestly deserve 10, but that was not listed as an option. The overall service at the Taj is beyond phenomenal. We would highly recommend the Taj to anyone who is interested.
