Mandarin Oriental, Boston has commenced a four month USD 15 million-dollar renovation project of all guestrooms and event spaces designed to re-confirm the hotel’s position as the premier luxury hotel in the city. The renovation, which began at the end of 2019, is scheduled for completion in April 2020. The hotel remains open throughout the refurbishment, which is being phased to allow for minimum guest disruption.
Conceived by Champalimaud Design, the scope of work includes all guestrooms and suites as well as the hotel’s 10,000 square feet of event facilities. The spa is also being enhanced with the addition of three new treatment rooms and refreshed wellness amenities.
The design company has approached the renovation of the guestrooms and suites from a residential point of view, incorporating both early New England design and classic Chinoiserie, the European interpretation of Chinese and East Asian artistic traditions. The event spaces are being designed as ‘ornate jewel boxes.’ The area will be bathed in opulent and creamy neutral tones with complementary accents.
“Over the last ten years, Mandarin Oriental, Boston has become an important part of the Boston community and this renovation will further enhance the accommodation and facilities, reinforcing the hotel’s reputation as the best luxury hotel in the city,” said Philipp Knuepfer, general manager of the hotel.
