Nine Zero
90 Tremont St.
Boston, MA 02108
(617) 772-5800

One of the best things about Nine Zero is its location across from Boston Common. Couples who do not want to take advantage of the hotel’s photo opportunities for group photos can take advantage of the Boston Public Garden next to the Common, which is a hugely popular wedding photo location for many reasons. Other great features include a long list of eco-friendly, sustainable practices. It offers fine dining for up to 60 guests, luxury rooms, rehearsal dinner, farewell brunch the following day and much more.
