Back Bay is lined with 19th century town houses that stretch along the Public Garden and the banks of the Charles River. On Newbury Street, these historic town houses are now an array of residential units, outdoor cafes, art galleries, designer boutiques, coffee shops and restaurants. The Newbury Guest House hotel consists of three interconnected town houses.
The area is also home to Copley Square, the Boston Public Library, the architecturally famous Trinity Church and I. M. Pei's John Hancock all-glass high rise. Another major street in the area is Commonwealth Avenue with its tree-lined mall fashioned after the famous boulevards of Paris.
The Newbury Guest House is proud to be at the center of one of most Boston's most historical neighborhoods. Back Bay was built on a landfill over the Charles River in the 1700's to provide housing for the gentry of the city. The architecturally inviting brown-stones that line Newbury Street offer a picture of the past, with the preservation of famous Bostonians' homes. A short stroll down Newbury street leads to the Boston Common and the beginning of the Freedom Trail. This 3-mile tour of Boston's major historical attractions begins at the Boston Common and leads travelers through the Old State House, the Bunker Hill Monument, the USS Constitution, to Paul Revere's House and back. This adventure is just one of many historical attractions close to the Newbury Guest House.
