A Convenient Option Among Hotels Near MFA Boston

Stay Minutes From Boston's Most Artful Address

John Singer Sargent, Vincent van Gogh, and Edgar Degas have one thing in common: they have each created art that now resides at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. These artists are just the tip of the iceberg at Boston's preeminent art museum. From famed American and European works to ancient Egyptian artifacts to the largest museum collection of Japanese works outside of Japan, the Museum of Fine Arts -- or MFA, as it's known by locals -- is home to one of the nation's most comprehensive permanent collections. 

The Colonnade Hotel is proud to be one of the top hotels near MFA Boston. The works visitors enjoy at the Museum of Fine Arts go far beyond the permanent collection standards with the carefully curated exhibitions for which the museum is known. Recent and ongoing exhibitions at the MFA Boston include "Pastoral to Pop," a survey of more than 50 British prints that run the gamut from post-impressionist drawings to modern etchings, and the evocative work of Herb Ritts, a leading fashion photographer of the 1980s and 1990s.

Architecture enthusiasts might find as much to love at the museum as do art experts. The beaux-arts building, erected in 1909 and designed by local architect Guy Lowell, is a sprawling masterpiece on par with New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Local Tip:

After traversing the galleries and taking in centuries-old art, step out of the hallowed halls and onto the Fenway for a brief walk along Boston's famed Emerald Necklace trail.  

The Colonnade Hotel is one of the most convenient hotels near MFA Boston. Located less than one mile from the museum on Huntington Avenue, our hotel is just a quick walk, five-minute cab ride, or three-stop T trip away from the museum.
