Newbury Street

Newbury Street
14-400 Newbury Street, Boston, MA 02199

Newbury Street in historic Back Bay is lined with world-famous designer apparel and accessories in the trendiest area of the city. The cluster of stores on Newbury Street begin at the Public Garden and end at Massachusetts Avenue to the west. The stores include men's and women's fashions, children's clothes, shoes, accessories, and maternity clothes with inventories of crafts, beauty products, media, watches, jewelry, beauty spas, tanning salons, hair stylists, and nail salons. Many restaurants and bars line the street with cafe-style sidewalk tables during summer. Commuters often skip the subway to walk Newbury Street for exercise and to enjoy the style.

The intersection of Newbury and Dartmouth Streets is just one block south of Copley Square where our hotel is located. Many First Night events occur on Newbury and in the square each New Year's Eve. A few blocks west on Boylston Street are the Prudential Center and Copley Plaza as above. Just to the east are Boston Public Garden, and Cheers Beacon Hill, made famous by the long-running TV show. Newbury Street also parallels the Esplanade Park along the Charles River, where free concerts take place during summer at the Hatch Shell.
