Back Bay

Nestled in the heart of the Back Bay, the five-star, five-diamond Mandarin Oriental, Boston sits two blocks from the Boston Common, public garden, and Commonwealth Avenue mall. Although it's entrenched in the iconic cityscape of Boston, the hotel’s legacy of service hails from much farther away. The Mandarin Oriental family traces its parentage back to two legendary hotels in southeast Asia: the Mandarin in Hong Kong and the Oriental in Bangkok. In keeping with its Asian heritage, Boston’s location fosters a desire to serve guests with grace and humility amid a tranquil atmosphere. Today's Reserve selection invites you to solidify your love amid this serene setting with a wedding package for up to 100 guests, which includes:

  • Ceremony and reception spaces for five hours
  • Reception with a live DJ for four hours
  • Three-course dinner for each guest with a personalized menu
  • A wedding cake
  • Coordination of details such as china, linens, and chairs with the catering manager
  • Two-night stay in a premier suite for the couple, plus one room for family
  • Two-hour couples spa sanctuary suite experience, including massage
  • Block of rooms reserved for guests
  • Other hotel amenities, such as a coat check
  • An anniversary dinner at Asana for two

All in all, this deal covers most of the wedding's venue-related plans, including linens, votive candles, and rental fees, but does not include such costs as parking and transportation, stationery, wedding attire, an officiant, photography, or flowers.

Ceremonies can take place out in the hotel's grassy sitting grove or in the same place as the reception—a 5,000-square-foot ballroom with tiger-maple paneling with silk-upholstery insets. In the daytime, light streams through floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook the historic Back Bay; at night, hand-blown glass chandeliers illuminate the dancing below. Throughout the hotel, paintings, collages, and sculptures from artists such as Frank Stella and David Hockney add a modern flair to the elegant surroundings. Forbes Travel Guide named Mandarin Oriental a five-star hotel in its 2013 edition, lauding its luxurious rooms and roomy, full-service spa as top-notch.

The hors d'oeuvres and three-course meal come together under the expertise of Executive Chef Rachel Klein, whose distinctions include Boston magazine's Best New Chef award and two Best New Restaurant awards from Esquire. Though she'll personalize the menu to suit the couple's taste, Chef Klein’s starter courses have included a day-boat jumbo scallop with toasted couscous, a raspberry beet reduction, and paddlefish caviar, as well as pan-fried duck foie gras with bourbon-spiked banana french toast and an apple frisée salad. Couples also have their pick of the hotel’s Rosenthal china settings and German-made crystal glassware, which graces tables topped with custom-made linens and Hepp flatware and surrounded by Chiavari chairs that come in multiple finishes and cushion styles.

The dressing area in the couples suite hosts both a powder room and a full dressing area, giving brides plenty of space to hang up their gowns and get ready. For wedding parties in need, the Mandarin Oriental’s staff can perform onsite tailoring or press and steam the gown right in the room. Stocked with Diptyque products, the suite’s granite bathroom features the same luxury amenities as throughout the hotel, including separate rainforest showers and deep soaking tubs. Additionally, the hotel's spa, which has been named a five-star spa by Forbes Travel Guide, hosts a private sanctuary suite where the newlywed couple can retreat to relax after their big day.
