Ames Boston Hotel

From its construction before the turn of the century over 100 years ago to its fully restored version as a luxury boutique hotel, the Ames building has a long, rich history in which time has only enhanced her prestigious facade.

The Ames Building was a significant work of architecture in the 19th century and continues as a landmark in American architecture up to this day.  A proud member of Historic Hotels of America, at 196 feet, it was the tallest masonry building designed in United States history and remains among the tallest in the world. It is considered by many to be Boston’s first skyscraper.
