Ames Boston Hotel Awarded 'Boston's Best Hotel - 2014' By Boston Magazine

BOSTON, Aug. 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- StepStone Hospitality is proud to announce that the Ames Boston Hotel, one of the company's premiere hotels, has been named 'Boston's Best Hotel for 2014' by Boston Magazine's Best of Boston® issue which highlights the very best the city has to offer. Since its 2009 opening the Ames Boston Hotel has been applauded for its chic design and premium service and has garnered numerous mentions and awards, including a AAA Four Diamond property rating and a Conde Nast Traveler "Hot List" selection.

"We're honored to have received this great recognition from Boston Magazine and we are so proud of our team who work diligently each day to go above and beyond to create an unforgettable experience for our guests," said chief executive officer Tom Russo of StepStone Hospitality.

Boston Magazine praises the Ames Boston's historical yet modern charm saying, "While we appreciate Boston's cobblestone streets, we're also progressives. This chic hotel is just like us: a little bit of both. Built into the skeleton of the city's first office tower (1893), the David Rockwell creation beautifully balances the past with a sleek, white future. Lovers of luxury will find five-star amenities like in-room spa services and fireplaces, and, if you're there the weekend of the Boston Calling music festival this fall, you'll be right next door."

Ames Boston offers 114 guest rooms in total – with thirteen different types to choose from in total, including Corner Kings, Suites, Lofts and a 1,600 square foot Apartment. Rooms give visitors the feeling of being in an ultra chic downtown apartment rather than a hotel room with decor that is marked by sleek, modern furniture and an eclectic, minimalist aesthetic. The property's nineteenth century history results in rooms with thirteen-foot ceilings, Romanesque arched windows, spanning from floor-to-ceiling, decorative marble fireplaces and oak wood floors. As of January 2014, the Ames opened a state-of-the-art Fitness Center located on the second floor overlooking the bustling streets of the Financial District.

Ames Boston's Downtown locale gives guests direct access to the city's financial and entertainment districts, and is conveniently just a quarter of a mile from the Amtrak hub, South Station, and four miles from Logan International Airport. Surrounding sights and historic landmarks that are just steps away from the property include Boston Harbor, Faneuil Hall, Beacon Hill, the Custom House Bell Tower and the Old State House, where the Declaration of Independence was first proclaimed to the public.

Ames Boston is located at One Court Street, Boston MA 02108. Phone: 617.979.8100; Fax: 617.979.8101. Twitter:  @AmesBostonHotel. Facebook: www.facebook.com/AmesBostonHotel
