Venue Setting
Set on the garden level, a welcoming co-working space named Conspire caters to hotel guests and local creatives. Open daily from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Conspire is free for guests with access available to locals and visitors for $20 per day, or a monthly membership fee of $250. Membership perks include fitness center access, complimentary coffee, breakfast snack bar, community happy hour, and ongoing programming.
The centerpiece of the space is a bar top created from a fallen elm tree planted in the 1880’s in Boston’s Back Bay. This wooden bar top was dry aged at a wood-working facility in New England and finished with hand-burned dates and events marked by the rings of the tree, from the invention of the first Gillette razor, the opening of Fenway Park, and the legal recognition of same-sex marriage.
Conspire also features a Game Lounge with favorites from local heavyweights Milton Bradley and Parker Brothers, and the Think Tank room, a creative boardroom where lightbulbs suspended from the ceiling and IdeaPaint on the walls to spark creativity. Even the restrooms offer a fun nod to Boston’s distinction in being home to the first subway system: they are tiled floor to ceiling in the colors of MBTA subway lines. Fees

Most are compact by design and all guestrooms come equipped with plush beds, super-fast Wi-Fi, an in-room safe, charging stations, TV, telephone, ample storage and Provenance Signature amenities.
Custom-designed wood and steel furniture takes minimalist inspiration from the building’s history as a dormitory with smart storage solutions like a luggage cubby and a dedicated gear wall. Intended to replace the typical closet with a shelf, it features a clothing rod, seat and drawer which houses the built-in safe. The Boston ‘firsts’ notion continues in the design, where reproductions of vintage paintings by local artists Washington Allston and Fitz Hugh Lane grace the walls often in the form of a headboard mural, re-contextualized with song titles from iconic Boston musicians.
In keeping with its mission to upend the status quo, some guestrooms omit in-room bathrooms in favor of private, single-occupant bathrooms located at the end of each hallway. Just like residential bathrooms, each of the 10 private shower suites per floor feature a toilet, vanity and glass shower. But, unlike at home, all guestrooms feature an occupancy indicator light that signal the availability of these suites directly to the comfort of each guestroom. Specialty Steele Canvas shower tote bags, complete with branded robes and slippers, are provided for added convenience.

World-renowned street artist Tristan Eaton was selected to create a site-specific foyer mural inspired by the stately paintings found in local institutional buildings like the Boston Public Library. His unique and meticulous approach allows him to tell a story through a visual collage of pop imagery, executed in freehand spray paint on a colossal scale. The mural illustrates Boston’s heritage in revolutionary thought, incorporating innovative products like the Polaroid camera, typewriter and smiley face and cultural icons such as Samuel Adams, Benjamin Franklin, John F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King, Jr. Corridor Carpeting
Beyond the mural, Tristan Eaton was commissioned to take his talents from the lobby ceiling to the hallway floors to create a custom design for the guestroom corridors. His first-ever carpet, the vibrant design is synergistic in style to the mural, featuring a striking display of revolutionaries like Edgar Allen Poe, Paul Revere and Malcom X. Innovation Tower
Created by the Boston-based team behind Individuals Collective, this three-story sculpture celebrates Boston’s lineage in innovation and revolution. Wrapped around the elevator column and spanning three stories, this installation features physical objects collected over the past year, representing significant inventions from the region from the basketball to pink flamingo lawn ornaments, Bose headphones, typewriters, the optical mouse and more, rendered in a monochromatic white to maintain its simple, yet bold impact. Standout Venue Features: With its daring art installations and sophisticated architecture, the two-story lobby conveys an irreverent attitude through its Boston ‘firsts’ design nods. The expansive space includes guest reception, a fireplace lounge and library, retail areas and a coffee shop.
Upon arrival, guests are welcomed at reception where a wall of repurposed mailboxes next to the front desk pay homage to the building’s heritage and the fact Boston was home to the nation’s first post office. Custom built by Boston’s Erik Rueda Design Lab, the ornate brass fronts of the mailboxes were salvaged from the building where they were in use at the YWCA for over 60 years.
Across the lobby, the Fireplace Lounge and Library was inspired by the Boston Public Library, one of the first major municipal libraries in the country. The space pays tribute to Transcendentalism and the Beatnik movement, two significant literary moments in Boston, with works by authors Louisa May Alcott, Emily Dickinson, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Jack Kerouac, and Henry David Thoreau, among others. Books from The Boston School, a group of local artists whose work from the 1980’s that continues to influence modern photography, are also on display.
