This fall, we took the kids to Boston. Boston is a city I loved in my 20’s and a spot my husband often visits for work. Aside from an overnight with Maggie when she was a baby, we had never taken the kids. Since it’s drivable from where we live, many families take trips there and always come back with rave reviews on how family friendly the city is and how much fun they had. So for the kids fall break, we decided to go and to stay at Four Seasons Boston.
We have always had wonderful experiences staying with kids at Four Seasons properties. They always go above and beyond to make families feel at home and always offer so many amenities for kids. Four Season Boston was no exception and a spot we can’t wait to visit again.
Here is why we loved Four Seasons Boston with Kids:
1. The Indoor Pool: When we travel in the fall and winter, we always look for hotels that have an indoor pool. We enjoy seeing the sites when we travel but with little kids, there’s only so much time each day you can spend out and about exploring a city. Of all the indoor pools we have seen, I can say with certainty our favorite yet was the indoor pool at Four Seasons Boston. One entire wall of the room that houses the pool is made up of windows that look out onto Boston’s Public Garden. So even though you’re swimming indoors, you have a beautiful view of the city.
2. The Rooms: We loved the rooms at Four Seasons Boston. They recently went through a huge renovation. The hotel has new guest rooms, Four Seasons “Sleep Temple” beds, new lobby art and furnishings, and an expanded lounge area. The reimagined rooms emphasis the gorgeous views of the Boston Public Garden. We found the rooms to be very spacious and comfortable for families and with the Sleep Temple beds we got an extra good night’s sleep (even with 4 kids in a hotel room!).

3. Pastry Class: The Pastry Class at Four Seasons Boston is truly a unique and special experience for kids. This complimentary amenity is something your kids will talk about for a long time. On Saturday afternoons, Lenore Corbley, the hotel’s pastry chef de partie, guides kids through a complimentary cookie-making class in the Pastry Shop. My kids had a blast and loved eating the cookies too!
4. Kid’s Adventure Package: The Kid’s Adventure package at Four Seasons Boston is adorable and made for the most fun my kids have ever had in a hotel room. Kids get to experience the “great indoors” with a glamping getaway – an indoor camping adventure complete with an in-room tent!
5. The Kid Friendly Food: While we were there, we tried in-room dinning for breakfast and also tried The Bristol. Both were amazing food for adults and had perfect options for kids. We like in room dinning because it’s laid back, we can stay in our pajamas and have a slow start to the morning. For breakfast out, The Bristol was the best meal we had our entire trip to Boston. The breakfast was amazing and even though it’s a really nice restaurant, they have great kid’s meals. I had a delicious mediterranean dish and the kids had Mickey Mouse shaped pancakes – everyone was happy!
6. The Location: Four Seasons Boston is located directly across from the Boston Public Garden and the Boston Common. This makes for a lovely view and a great spot for kids to run and play. We also found the property to be in walking distance to almost all the sites we wanted to see and tons of restaurants.
We had a wonderful stay at Four Seasons Boston. All 6 guests in our party, from age 2 on up were comfortable, well taken care of and had a memorable trip! I would highly recommend this property if you are visiting Boston with kids.
