Stop by the Taj Boston-- the luxe landmark on Arlington and Newbury streets overlooking the Public Garden-- for a festive holiday tea available through December 31. The hotel is decked out in plush Christmas décor, and the enticing tea menu features delicacies like lobster profiteroles, smoked salmon and American caviar. You can choose from a selection of 21 fine loose leaf teas (white, green, oolong, oh my!), including a special Taj Chai Blend that is exclusive to Taj Hotels. Priced at $33 per adult for sandwiches, pastries and tea; $25 per adult for pastries and tea; $16 for children ages 12 and under. Bring your kids for the Teddy Bear Tea on select Saturdays and Sundays starting December 3; the menu has children's favorites like peanut butter & jelly tea sandwiches, and the hotel will accept teddy bear donations for Children’s Hospital Boston.
Stay overnight in a suite with a wood-burning fireplace and take advantage of the services of the Fireplace Butler, who’ll prepare a roaring fire with the fragrant wood of your choice. A special Taj Boston Suite Celebration package is available; stay one night and get the second night for 50% off, with rates from $249 per night.
