The Four Seasons Hotel Boston officially reopened last week following a transformation led by designer Ken Fulk. The update of the urban retreat draws upon the vernacular of the stately homes found in Boston’s Beacon Hill and Back Bay neighborhoods.
“I have been visiting this Four Seasons since I was in my 20s and lived just down the street. I was thrilled to be asked to help reimagine the public spaces, which, in my mind, could easily feel more like a grand residence with the sprawling ‘grounds’ of the Public Garden,” Fulk says. “We delved deep into Boston’s rich history and literary traditions to find our inspiration. We wanted guests to feel at home the minute they arrived so the lobby needed to be so much more than a transitional space. We created rooms within the existing lobby where folks could enjoy a coffee or a cocktail or simply sit and relax with a good book.”
