The Danforth is the right destination for a romantic getaway, a city spree, or a base to work from.Within these grand, enduring brick walls are distinctive and stylish guest rooms, and gracious and elegant public rooms. Entertain family and friends in the inn and its enclosed private gardens. See the sun rise over the city and harbor from the cupola or enjoy sundown as it sets the sky ablaze over our historic Spring Street district.
