The Lenox

The Lenox, Jeffrey explains, dates back to 1900 when it was hailed by the Boston Sunday Post as ‘Boston’s Waldorf-Astoria’. To underline this claim it later boasted Lucius Boomer, the president of the New York legend, on its board. The hotel was named after Charles Lennox, Duke of Richmond, a supporter of the American colonists in the run up to the War of Independence.
In 1900 The Lenox opened as the city's most luxurious hotel. As the jury expects it, here tradition meets modern times: some of the rooms still have working fire places and fire tenders deliver wood and kindle flames. At the same time you can access the Internet in your room over wireless LAN. It is the haunt of many celebrities and fits perfectly into the list of famous historic hotels. In 1963 the Saunders family took over the fabled Boston landmark, the current President and CEO is Jeffrey Saunders, safeguarding the future of this historic landmark. The Lenox was built in 1900 at a cost of $1,100,000. Its exterior of red and white terra cotta bricks and lavishly decorated interior were unmatched in the city of Boston at the turn of the century. Built in a record-breaking eight months by George A. Fuller Company, the hotel is named after the family of Lady Sarah Lenox, wife of King George III, who ruled before and during the American Revolution. Lucias Boomer, original owner of The Lenox and manager of the first Waldorf-Astoria, decided on the name to honor the anniversary of over 150 years of peace between England and North America. The Saunders family of Boston began operating the hotel in 1963, and purchased it outright in 1996. Today, the Saunders family continues to own and operate the hotel under the able management of General Manager Jose Estrompa.
