“Boston’s Langham lodge could be forgiven for possessing a selected stuffiness. Established in the straight-laced Monetary District of a relatively standard city, it occupies a century-outdated Renaissance Revival landmark crafted as the neighborhood HQ of the Federal Reserve Financial institution. But this hotel — which debuted its two-12 months, reportedly $150 million redo past 12 months — is nearly anything but stuffy.

Refined, cheeky references to banking abound: carpets and pillows encouraged by the layout of the greenback invoice, nailhead particulars recalling coins or vault doorways, and metallic accents resembling gold bars. At the Fed lobby lounge, New England classics get a kicky reboot (lobster mac & cheese, everyone?), though the consume menu capabilities a gin, rye, and beer manufactured exclusively for the lodge.”
