Leo A Daly designs The Courtyard Boston Downtown

Leo A Daly announced the completion of The Courtyard Boston Downtown.

When Ashford bought this 1925 Art Deco property, the company had transformation in mind. Now completely redone, with the changes inspired by the venue’s Theater District roots, this Boston property is said to feel unique and glamorous, even while offering all the amenities guests expect of a Courtyard property.

Boston’s Theater District inspired the renovation of The Courtyard Boston Downtown back to its 1925 grandeur. Located near Wang Theater, Boston Opera House, Shubert Theatre, and Charles Playhouse, the hotel celebrates a distinct era of the city’s theater history.

Virtual Roundtable

Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience

Join Hotel Management’s Elaine Simon for our latest roundtable—Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience. The experts on the panel will share how to inspire guest confidence that hotels are safe and clean and how to win back guest business.

In the property’s public areas, key features include: a classic black and white color palette, set off by asymmetrical floor tiles and bursts of raspberry and citron; and draperies that mimic theater curtains in the lobby, creating textural counterpoint to natural stone elements and motifs in the space.

The property’s meeting spaces also saw changes.  The grand ballroom preserves the original’s intricate white molding, but places it in contrast to the damask black carpet.

Meanwhile, the guestrooms now have elaborate, asymmetrical damask carpet that flows into the guest corridors, coordinating with the black textured wallcovering; feature a color scheme of charcoal grey and berry; and feature striking wallcovering at the headboard with metallic silver scroll work.  The renovated baths have a spa-like feel, complete with dark woods and porcelain tiles that resemble marble.
