If you want to truly pamper your little angels, the Ritz-Carlton is arguably the best Beantown has to offer. Besides babysitting services, strollers and cribs on request, the hotel houses a children’s suite featuring a children’s bedroom/playroom complete with tot-sized furniture, an entertainment center with television, VCR and stereo, a “Trumpet of the Swan” video and book, arts and crafts center, toys, games, and a mini-refrigerator filled with healthy snacks and beverages. Another bonus: You can enroll your kids in the Ritz’s “A Day of Social Savvy” program where they’ll learn ballroom dancing, table manners, social correspondence and telephone etiquette. The hotel completed an $11 million renovation in 2008 of all guests rooms and suites.

Pros: service, as a club member - breakfast, valet parking and access to gym (equinox). Bathroom was great. Awesome lobby and restaurants decor.
Neg: Even with the renovation, the rooms were not that impressive. Restaurant was overprice for the quality of the food.
I took my three young daughters for a girls weekend in Boston. The service was exceptional. The doormen greeted my kids and engaged them in conversation each time we passed through the doors. The staff was friendly, and provided a great scavenger hunt for the kids. They found a quiet area in the bar for us to have a light dinner and great "mocktails" for the kids. Thank you for making us feel so special and welcome.
