Claremont Companies Opens 174-Room Hilton Garden Inn in Brookline, Mass.
Ten-story, all-glass urban hotel development is located at the gateway to Boston in Historic Brookline Village
BROOKLINE, Mass. - Claremont Companies today announced the opening of Hilton Garden Inn Boston Brookline. Located at 700 Brookline Avenue, this new 10-story, 174-room, all glass exterior Brookline landmark hotel was designed by world renowned CambridgeSeven architects and built by Callahan Construction. The opening marks Claremont Companies’ eighth hotel developed in Massachusetts and 20th overall.
“The opening of the Hilton Garden Inn Boston Brookline marks an exciting milestone for Claremont Companies,” said Pat Carney, chairman and chief executive officer. “This project is a culmination of exceptional vision and hard work from many parties. It is a true testament to our high standards as well as a unique opportunity to celebrate the revitalization of this area of Brookline Village with the town’s first all-glass tower. We are pleased to be able to serve the patients and families visiting the Longwood Medical Area and are confident guests will enjoy the welcoming atmosphere and views of the Boston skyline, and expect that we will soon become a highly sought-after neighborhood gem with the thoughtfully curated food and beverage concepts offered by Punch Bowl.”
Hilton Garden Inn Boston Brookline is located steps away from Boston’s prestigious Longwood Medical and Academic Area, Dana Farber Cancer Institute, Boston Children’s Hospital, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Harvard Medical School and the MBTA Green Line that connects Brookline to all points in the city of Boston. Minutes from Fenway Park, Boston universities, and downtown Boston, this urban hotel has revitalized and energized the historic gateway between Brookline and Boston, connecting Brookline Avenue and Boylston Street.
Hilton Garden Inn Boston Brookline offers an elevated, modern, and contemporary design, inspired by the natural elements of the Emerald Necklace Conservancy adjacent to the hotel, that complements the brand's hallmark bright and airy décor. Each guest room features floor-to-ceiling windows with panoramic views of the Boston Skyline, Olmsted Park, or Boston’s Famous Citgo sign in Kenmore Square. Guest rooms boast the brand’s signature bedding, featuring fresh, white duvets and crisp linens; a spacious and clutter-free work desk with an ergonomic desk chair; and an in-room "hospitality center" with a mini fridge, microwave oven and coffee maker.
Hilton Garden Inn Boston Brookline will offer numerous value-added amenities and services for guests, including complimentary Wi-Fi throughout the property, 24-hour business center with Print Spots™ remote printing, a state-of-the-art fitness center, indoor pool, and shuttle service to the Longwood Medical area and the Brookline Village train stop. For biking lovers, a premium guest room with a Peloton for private use may be reserved.
Hilton Garden Inn Boston Brookline also features a modern city tavern on-property called Punch Bowl. This is the newest concept by creative and renowned restauranteurs Jen and Josh Ziskin. Inspired by the 18th-century historic tavern that Brookline was once famous for, the Ziskins’ aim is to rekindle the spirit of the Punch Bowl and recreate a communal gathering place in the heart of the village. Created by Chef Amanda Lowry, Punch Bowl’s menu will feature a contemporary take on traditional New England fare and will feature signature cocktails influenced by Brookline’s unique history and vibrant location.
“This new property offers guests convenient and inviting accommodations, whether traveling for business or leisure,” said John Mitchell, general manager. “Our Team Members strive to make each guest’s stay better and brighter through heartfelt interactions and thoughtful service.”
For business conferences and social events, the hotel features two meeting rooms, totaling 1,368 sq. ft. of meeting space and a 2,300 sq. ft. third-floor outdoor terrace accommodating up to 175 people. Both meeting rooms are equipped with 75” SMART TVs and built-in state-of-the-art Premium Ultra-HD Conference Cam systems for elevated Hilton Event Ready Hybrid Solutions and virtual conference needs.
As Hilton Garden Inn responds to the COVID-19 pandemic, some services and amenities have been adjusted in order to adhere to health and safety guidance from local government. To emphasize our commitment to the health and safety of guests, the property is participating in the Hilton CleanStay Program to deliver an industry-defining standard of cleanliness and disinfection. Our elevated processes and team member training have been developed with RB, maker of Lysol and Dettol, to help Hilton Garden Inn guests enjoy an even cleaner and safer stay from check-in to check-out. New standards for Hilton CleanStay that have been rolled out include a Hilton CleanStay Room Seal to indicate that a room has not been accessed since being thoroughly cleaned and disinfected and flexible housekeeping options.
In addition, Hilton Garden Inn Boston Brookline installed Delos Advanced Air Purification systems in each guest room, a cutting-edge health and safety feature that harnesses patented technology capable of trapping and removing particles as small as 0.007 microns at 99.9% efficiency.
