The Boston Park Plaza Hotel’s recent renovation preserves the building’s character while embracing the youthful, innovative and international vibe that Boston radiates.

Contemporary lines and modern materials blend with historic profiles of the architectural envelope to create an atmosphere that’s welcoming and not overly-formal. The lighting in the lobby and bar transitions throughout the day from bright morning to dusky evening to moody nighttime.

The original millwork behind the bar was rediscovered during construction (previously thought lost). The lighting focuses on drawing attention to the architectural details and a backlit clock was custom-made to pay homage to the original design.
