BOSTON, MASS. (August 25, 2010) - Taj Boston wants to help you get into the holiday spirit this season. From just $249 per night per room through December 31, you and your favorite traveling companions can make the landmark hotel at Arlington and Newbury streets your personal holiday "base camp," with luxurious accommodations, a wealth of holiday entertaining and relaxing options, and Boston's best shopping at your doorstep.

Explore fashionable Newbury Street for the Back Bay's choicest offerings of designer collections, chic accessories and more for everyone on your holiday gift list. Then retreat to the hotel for a rejuvenating afternoon tea, including one just for children and their families, or a handcrafted cocktail enjoyed fireside in The Bar overlooking the Public Garden, where you may enjoy a complimentary tapas plate with a glass of Champagne.
