Boston’s Oldest Treasure Restored

A recognized Boston landmark and symbol of Boston’s history, the Newbury Hotel first opened in 1927 as one of the inaugural Ritz-Carlton hotels in the United States. One of Boston’s most cherished gems for over 90 years, the five-star luxury destination has been restored to its former glory as The Newbury Boston Hotel. A union project, the $140 million renovation included NECA Boston contractors and will also host our Chapter’s 2021 Holiday Celebration!
