Top choice b&b in South End & Chinatown

If you love the theater, or if you love innovative contemporary design, or if you just love creature comforts and warm hospitality, you will love Encore. Co-owned by an architect and a set designer, this 19th-century South End town house sets a stage for both of their passions.

Exposed brick walls are adorned with exotic masks, interesting art and theatrical posters; bold colors and contemporary furniture pieces furnish the spacious guest rooms. All three rooms have a sitting area or private deck that offers a sweet skyline view. Continental breakfast included.
