A Night in the City

Last weekend, Chris and I took time off from our guest bath renovation and treated ourselves to a night out in Boston. Whenever we stay overnight in the city, we like to stay at the Eliot Hotel. It is a boutique hotel in a great location and has a really amazing restaurant. A major bonus is that they allow pets, so Harry and Georgia were able to come with us. Yup, we're those people.

We splurged on a suite. I love the french doors that separate the bedroom from the living room area. This made me want to outfit our own bedroom with a large scale mirror behind the headboard and install a bed canopy.
Here's another suite with a shot of the living area.
The restaurant, Clio. Isn't the molding fantastic? It is hard to tell in this picture, but the rug is a leopard print. Me-ow.

The first time we stayed at the Eliot, we sat and had a drink at the bar. Of course, I had to ask the bartender if he knew the name of the wall color, but he only looked at me like I had two heads.  Oh well, it was worth a shot!

Where's your favorite weekend getaway?

I'm going to Boston for a meeting in April so it's good to have a recommendation.
We haven't had a getaway in years. So sad.

How nice for you two! And I would do the same thing about the paint - too funny. We usually go into Center City Philadelphia when we want a night out, but we've also taken a drive down to AC and Annapolis too - both are fairly quick trips and nice to do something different. That hotel room suite is so pretty and the restaurant very swanky! Have a good weekend Carrie!

How fun to take a break from renovating and stay at the Eliot! I loved that bar that they used to have in the basement where the sushi restaurant is now. It had couches and was really intimate....do you remember it? Clio is a great restaurant. You are so funny that you asked the bartender about the wall color!!!!

Amazing! I want to stay there! That bad is awesome and I want those coffered ceilings in my house!

Oh, I fondly remember our last getaway before kids - it was Boston! We stayed at a lovely boutique b&b and I was sooooo pregnant but we had the best time ever. Wow, that was 4.5 years ago ;)

OH man I want a mirror behind my headboard with a canopy! What a great splurge....!

Looks like a real escape, Carrie. I am sure you need a relaxing getaway as you have been so busy. I have yet to go on a weekend break..maybe I did 10 years ago before kids, I forget!

Wall color. Nerd.

We like Chicago for a week-end getaway. I'd push for one now but I think we're heading to Costa Rica in April. I'll be patient. :)

That's too funny that you asked the name of the paint color! That is totally something I would do too! :) Looks like a beautiful hotel. You two deserve time away from all the hard work at the house! :) I also love the look of a mirror above the headboard. One day... :)

What a beautiful suite. Don't you love weekend getaways? Nothing like recharging your batteries!

That is so sweet...getting a head start on Valentine's? (c: And what a great hotel! I just always enjoy the fact that I don't have to clean the room/bathroom (c:

That room looks awesome! That's totally the kind of question that I'd ask. We head to manhattan for a city night. If we ever go to Boston, I'll definitely scope out the Eliot. Congrats on the night away :)

A canopy is super easy! You two will knock it out in one afternoon. Can't wait to see the pics.

That is too funny Carrie that you asked the name of the wallcolor. The Eliot looks like a beautiful escape. I hope you had a wonderful night away, it was well deserved.

Cracking me up. I love that you asked the name of the wall color! Sounds like a wonderful night away. Oh and hey, you could totally do that mirror/canopy thing in your bedroom! I'm excited to see if this idea turns into a project ;-)
