Boston's 190-room Kimpton Nine Zero, at the crossroads of Beacon Hill, Downtown Crossing and the Financial District, begins a top-to-bottom, $10 million transformation this month that will touch all rooms, all 2,400 square feet of event space and the living-room lobby.
 
The hotel's new design aims to mix the modern and with the antique, featuring plush leather bed frames and iconic Eames chairs. The redone lobby will be configured for business and leisure comfort using velvets, stone and metallic finishes, with leather-bound books and typewriters throughout.
 
"Nine Zero's dramatic transformation speaks to Boston's new role on the world stage," said Michal Penek, general manager of the hotel. "The city has never been more worthy of being in the international limelight, and it continues to change at lightning speed, becoming an all-the-more-desirable destination. When we unveil our luxe new look and feel, we will not only be keeping pace with the times, but innovating the Boston hotel market."
 
Nine Zero's complimentary amenities include high-speed WiFi, overnight shoeshine services, personal yoga mats, custom hotel bikes, and morning coffee and tea service. The property has a 24-hour fitness center and offers in-room spa treatments.
