Marriott International Opens Second Four Points by Sheraton in Tanzania

Since the all-new Four Seasons
Hotel One Dalton Street, Boston opened
its doors for the first time on May 28, 2019, guests and staff alike have been
falling in love with the property. Four Seasons veteran and Hotel Manager Jerome Arribas outlines five standout aspects of
Boston’s newest skyscraper luxury hotel in the heart of the Back Bay

1. The Building

“Before even stepping foot inside the hotel, you have to take a moment
to appreciate the building itself,” explains Jerome. “The design is sleek,
modern and elegant. It gives our guests a hint of what to expect when they come
inside,” he reveals. The elliptical “guitar pick” shaped building – now the
city’s third tallest building and its highest residences at 724 feet or 220
metres – was designed by Henry Cobb of Pei Cobb
Freed Partners in collaboration with Gary Johnson of CambridgeSeven Associates. 

2. The Guest Rooms and Suite

“I’m simply in love with the rooms!” smiles Jerome, clearly proud of the
Hotel’s 215 hotel
rooms and suites.  “The overall layout of the rooms
gives a lot of flexibility and gives a graceful shape. We are thrilled to offer
a hotel room that is so unique,” says Jerome. Floor-to-ceiling windows allow
for a light filled guest room, perfect for the business leisure traveller
alike thanks to the thoughtful use of space, with every detail anticipating the
ne and wants of modern guests, from soundproofing between floors and rooms
to cutting-edge in-room technologies. Bill Rooney of Bill Rooney Studio Inc was commissioned to drive the design aesthetic of the Hotel’s guest
rooms and public spaces.

3. The Art Collection

Commenting on the Hotel’s collaboration with notable Art Curator Kate Chertavian, Jerome makes the connection between the pieces and the hotel’s
location. “It’s no coincidence that many of our art pieces pay homage to the
rich history of Boston, and our location is in the arts and music district of
the city,” he explains. The lobby at Four Seasons
Hotel One Dalton Street, Boston prominently
displays Duke Riley’s mosaic “They Say, On A Really Hot Day”, depicting
the very local story of the Great Molasses Flood of 1919. Original works
selected from the Hotel’s extensive art collection curated
by Kate Chertavian are in every room and suite, as well as public spaces
throughout Four Seasons Hotel One Dalton Street, Boston. 

4. The Wellness Floor at One Dalton

“This is by far my favourite area of the hotel – it’s stunning and I am
so proud of the what we are offering on The Wellness Floor,” explains Jerome. The Wellness
Floor at One Dalton very consciously presents itself as much
more than just a spa. Offering guests the perfect environment to focus upon
rebalancing both body and mind, The Wellness Floor combines five treatment
rooms, a state-of-the-art fitness facility, and an indoor swimming pool with a
diverse, thoughtfully designed “Wellness Experiences”, all grounded in Wellness
Manager McKenzie Cassidy’s holistic approach to wellbeing.

5. Zuma

“The partnership with Zuma fits so well with the kind of experience we are offering guests,”
says Jerome. “Zuma has a great pulse. An energy you can feel from the bar and
all the way through the dining room,” he explains. Zuma’s award-winning dining
concept opened its 12th restaurant at Four Seasons
Hotel One Dalton Street, Boston, and has
given a new drinking and dining experience to the city, all inspired by the
informal and traditional Japanese concept of izakaya, where dishes
are shared on the table.“The hotel has a modern, vibrant beat to it
too, so we’re thrilled to have Zuma alongside us,” says Jerome.
