Located in the heart of elegant and historic Beacon Hill, the Beacon Hill Hotel & Bistro offers the modern amenities and conveniences of larger hotels, in an intimate neighborhood setting.

The restaurant’s raised mahogany paneling, banquettes, mosaic tile flooring, etched glass and crackling fireplace all contribute to a refined bistro environment.

Owners Cecilia and Peter Rait, whose previous venture was La Brasserie de l’Entrecôte in Lisbon, Portugal, bring a uniquely European cosmopolitan sense to the staid Beacon Hill neighborhood.
