AKA, global leader in luxury hospitality, continues its strategic growth with the announcement of Hotel AKA Back Bay, the brand's exciting debut in Boston, MA. Previously the Loews Boston Hotel, the 225-room property will undergo a design refresh, all while open for stays, to ensure facets of AKA are infused into the hotel. Hotel AKA Back Bay will offer a sophisticated design, lifestyle amenities and accommodations with the sense of home in mind. It will serve as the perfect destination to meet the trend of the "bleisure" traveler who is visiting for a business meeting and has the desire to extend their trip for a few extra days to experience the city's fine offerings.

The acquisition of the property is a result of Electra America Hospitality Group (EAHG), a joint venture between AKA and Electra America, and marks EAHG's sixth property since the joint venture launched in early 2021. EAHG is dedicating $20 Million in capital for the design upgrades and renovations to Hotel AKA Back Bay.

Located at 154 Berkeley Street, in Boston's affluent shopping and dining district, Hotel AKA Back Bay will offer unparalleled access to a myriad of Boston's cultural attractions, walking distance to Boston Commons, Boston Public Library and Copley Square. Young professionals and families with ties to Boston's more than 40 colleges and universities will also pose as a key guest segment for the hotel. Hotel AKA Back Bay is near Berklee College of Music, Boston College, Boston University, Emerson, Harvard, MIT, Northeastern University, and Tufts Medical School. The new hotel will also attract many business travelers visiting the city's technology, start-up and life sciences companies, key industries that have grown in Boston due to its plethora of higher education institutions and their talents.
