Boston: Kimpton Nine Zero & Good Eats!

Happy Monday readers! Start your Monday with some coffee, and remember to enter my current coffee-loving illy giveaway! Nothing says Monday like enjoying some coffee throughout the day and these three new illy blends will give you a head start if you win! Good Luck and now for our regular programming...

Boston just might be my favorite city. It's big enough to keep me busy, but it's not as packed as the bigger cities. We ended our trip to IACPNYC with a stay at the Kimpton Nine Zero Hotel, the perfect spot to relax, have good food, and enjoy amazing customer service!

The Minibar: Foodie Inspired. An in-room martini bar? Yes please! Offering six different flavors of Stirrings drink mixers and rimmers, crystal glassware for both martinis and wine, as well as some curated snacks, the best spirits, and even a variety of local brews.Coffee makers are available upon request, and of course I needed to request one for my early morning rising. Up to my room, a Keurig brewing system was delivered with a variety of three coffee pods.

Details & Design are two of the Nine Zero's most prominent aspects and can be found in every corner of the room. Even the soap, wrapped in gorgeous paper is a treat! Entering the hotel through it's red brick structure, you arrive upon a lobby decorated with elegance and finesse, and you'll find sumptuous touches here and there. Riding the elevator up to your room and walking the quiet hallways, a sense of peace surrounds you. Sure, the Nine Zero is pet-friendly, but you won't hear any barking since I think even the dogs commit to the quiet peacefulness. Check out their specials and packages here.

Comfort is another major aspect of the Nine Zero. Did you know there is a pillow menu available? Catering to your every comfort, the Nine Zero has you covered!

Nine Zero Hotel features four one-bedroom suites and one penthouse suite on the 19thfloor called Cloud NINE. This ultra-luxurious suite floats dramatically above Boston with floor-to-ceiling windows and an unmatched panoramic view of the city.  Electronic drapes, a viewing telescope, plasma screen television with surround sound, and a steam shower and Jacuzzi complete the perfect cosmopolitan getaway.  Iris identification technology is also offered for keyless access to the Cloud NINE suite. Nine Zero Hotel is the first hotel in the world to use this technology. -Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants

Connecting with Kimpton - Nine Zero was another perk of our stay. Not only were they in constant contact with me, but they recommended the best place to eat in Boston's Chinatown: Gourmet Dumpling House. A short walk away from the Nine Zero Hotel, Boston's Chinatown is a great source for Asian products and meals.

We arrived at the Gourmet Dumpling House and decided to start our meal with Kimchi. It was M's first time trying it and he loved it. The perfect amount of spice and the cabbage leaves were a great, crunchy addition. It was followed with Juicy Pork Dumplings, Crab & Cream Cheese Ragoons, Beef with Long Horn Peppers, and white rice. An amazing meal that paired wonderfully with a can of Sapporo beer. Definitely check them out while in Boston!
