Four Seasons Hotel Boston Brews It Up


By: Five Star Alliance

Four Seasons Hotel Seattle


Are you a hops-head? Always looking for the newest IPA or Lager? You're iln luck! Several Four Seasons properties in the US are pairing up with local breweries to create custom batches and service offerings. 

Four Seasons Hotel Seattle has a new custom beer is called Never Trust a Skinny Chef. ART Restaurant Chef Jelle Vandenbrouke is serving up some creative dishes, including Skinny Chef Ale ice cream, inspired by the pale ale. The beer itself was made by local nano-brewery NW Peaks, which specializes in small batches and new inventive experiments. ART has also customized the beer tap handle, in likeness of Executive Chef Kerry Sear.

Santa Barbara may be known for its wines, but the region is also home to numerous microbreweries.  Four Seasons Resort The Biltmore Santa Barbara has teamed up with the award-winning Telegraph Brewing Company to create its own signature beer. Served only at the Resort's Ty Lounge, the extra-pale ale was inspired by evenings spent strolling through the area's citrus groves. The ale's name, 1927, was chosen via social media. 1927 is also the year the hotel opened.  

Considering a Beantown wedding?  Four Seasons Hotel Boston is offering those who book a ceremony at the hotel a break from the usual champagne toasts. Beer-loving lovebirds can choose from custom beer stations or a travelling kegerator. On offer are exclusively Boston-brewed beers, including Samuel Adams and Allagash Belgian White. Ifyou aren't getting married, but still want to take advantage of the beerfest, the package can be booked for other events.

Winner of Last Minute Giveaway Tells All


By: Five Star Alliance

 

One of the winners of our recent Last Minute Giveaway recently sent us an email telling us about her stay at XV Beacon. Deanna R. writes:

15 Beacon

 
The hotel exterior is undergoing some renovation, but inside everything was beautiful! Parking in Boston is usually hard to find and expensive anywhere. We had some difficulty figuring out where to drive up to use their valet parking, but the employees were very kind and helpful. The desk clerk explained things and answered my questions. The room was beautiful and quiet, even though in busy Boston! The touch of a small cookie and strawberry dipped in chocolate was a nice welcome. The bellhop brought our luggage to the room. The hotel is close to Quincy Market (about a 15 minute walk) and since it was a nice evening we walked and enjoyed the sights and the choice of many kinds of food. Boston Common is nearby, but we chose to tour MIT Museum instead. In the morning I was disappointed at having no hot water to take a shower at 9:30 AM, but when my husband called the desk an hour later, they sent a man right away and my husband had hot water for his shower. The service was wonderful, but I would suggest they could provide a coffee maker or hot water in the room or in the lobby. My husband and I greatly enjoyed our time together in the relaxing atmosphere of XV Beacon.

 

Congratulations Deanna!
