Beacon Hill is the old, aristocratic neighborhood in Boston. It is filled with red-brick sidewalks, street lamps still lit by gas flames, antique shops, hidden gardens and perfectly preserved Victorian architecture. It is also in the center of the city, with the Boston Common, Public Garden, Esplanade, Faneuil Hall, Back Bay, Newbury Street, the Theatre District, Chinatown and Downtown Crossing’s classic shopping district all within a 5-10 minute walk.

The Inn was originally built as a single family townhouse in 1860 by the Mount Vernon Proprietors. The three men who composed this enterprise, James Mason, Harrison Otis Grey and John Greenleaf, were successful neighborhood businessmen who thought the Back Bay area was perfect for developing the homes of the next generations of Bostonians and used 94-96 Charles Street townhouses as ?odel homes? Although originally conceived as a four year project as a model home, the recession following the American Civil War slowed sales and the Back Bay development took seven years to sell out. 94 Charles Street was largely un-renovated over the next 140 years, until it was substantially re-invented starting January 12, 1999 and completed January 15, 2000, maximizing the original detail but completely upgrading its systems into a modern luxury nine room inn.
