Historic inn offers ‘revolutionary’ hospitality, service to wedding couples
When the Inn at Hastings Park in Lexington calls its hospitality “revolutionary,” that is not an exaggeration. Wedding couples will be surrounded by a warm, inviting atmosphere in the inn, a meticulously-restored trio of 19th century buildings, that is only a block away from Lexington’s Battle Green, where the Revolution began. Outdoor ceremony settings include a lovely side yard, or “park,” and a pretty back garden, where a tent may be located. The inn’s dining venue, contemporary but cozy, is perfect for receptions of up to 60 people. The celebrated culinary staff specializes in creative versions of New England cuisine. The historic inn is a member of the elite Relais & Chateaux international association and has a AAA Four Diamond Award.
Imagine descending a dramatic staircase in a landmark 1927 hotel, your wedding guests gathered below in the Grand Ballroom, chandeliers glittering, crystal glasses shimmering on ivory-lace tablecloths. It’s a romantic fantasy the Taj Boston, with its unparalleled service and attentive event-planners, is ready to create for your special day. Or perhaps you prefer something equally elegant but more intimate, in which case the jewel-box French & Adam’s Lounge beckons. Both venues, as well as the finely appointed Main Dining Room, have the feel of timeless luxury, from rich draperies and gold highlights to stunning views of Newbury Street and the Public Garden with its romantic swan boats. And if you desire more luxury post-ceremony, the fabulous Taj suites await you.
Flexibility, unique features combine for variety of wedding options
A mere 18 miles from Boston, but tucked away on 24 wooded acres, the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Boston-Bedford Glen has the flexibility to transform its 13,000 square feet of event and banquet space into a configuration that works for your dream wedding, as well as the caring and experienced staff to deliver exactly what you want for your big day. That means you can walk down a romantic path to exchange vows in a landscaped courtyard, your guests seated on plush white chairs, have your reception on a patio with fire pits and outdoor heaters or in the Grande Ballroom with 15-foot ceilings, custom chandeliers and skylight. And outside the ballroom? A lobby with a grand piano - the perfect cocktail space.
