The only boutique hotel on Boston’s famed Newbury Street, Newbury Guest House sits in the heart of the Back Bay’s premiere historic brownstone district – a charming home base from which to explore the city’s fascinating history, elegant architecture, high-end dining and nightlife, world-class shopping, renowned universities, and legendary Fenway Park.
Nubar DerHagopian first envisioned Newbury Guest House and joined the three residences that now house it, even living there himself for some time before turning it over to his great-nephew and local Bostonian David Garabedian. An 1897 map of Newbury Street shows that nearly all its brownstones were single-family homes; very few were flats or multi-family residences. Of the few commercial businesses on the street, two were liveries and one was a stable for carriages and horses. The relatively large size of these enterprises reflects their importance to Newbury Street's typical residents: prosperous families able to afford four-story houses, servants, and carriages.
Newbury Guest House
The three former single-family Victorian residences that now comprise Newbury Guest House were built in the Queen Anne and Rustic styles. Renovated in the early 1990s, these three homes were joined to create our small, stylish, 35-room boutique hotel in the heart of Boston, and still feature many of the homes’ original details such as ceiling medallions and decorative fireplaces.
And the vibe here is as unique as the hotel itself – European charm in a Colonial American setting. Take in our collection of paintings from the nearby Pucker Gallery, and people-watch from the lobby’s elegant bay window. While you’re there, play some chess and treat yourself to our curated collection of fine wines or complimentary premium Lavazza espresso. And meet new friends and fascinating fellow guests from all over the world.
