Beacon Hill, Boston

Satisfy your hankering for Boston at The Hancock. Tucked away on a tranquil street, this red-brick walk-up has charming details like the crossheads, pediments, and fire escape. Your space features hardwood floors, distinctive wallpaper, and a fully equipped kitchenette with shared laundry facilities. In Beacon Hill, there's something for everyone — and just a short walk away from your apartment. Relish the past by strolling through the cobblestone streets and Federal rowhouses. Embrace the future at the state-of-the-art Orpheum Theatre. Or try today's most popular eateries and eclectic shops. We love the squash carpaccio and rooftop views at Contessa. No matter what brings you to Beantown, make The Hancock your Boston base.
