The Ames Boston Hotel has recently completed a 6 million dollar renovation that includes the ultimate Bobby Orr-themed suite for the die-hard No. 4 fans out there.
The room, along with an abundance of Orr memorabilia, contains two seats from the original Boston Garden. This makes it truly the ideal getaway for long-time B’s fans who want to relive a golden era of Bruins hockey, one that saw the black and gold win two Stanley Cups in three years in 1970 and ‘72.
Fellas, if you’re lucky enough to have found a woman that enjoys the game as much as you do, spending a night here is a must. Ladies, even if your man would prefer to wake up in the morning to Tom Brady rather than the greatest Bruin of all time, this room could still be worth the money.
The suite is designed to look like you are on a sheet of ice, complete with face off dots and a miniature jumbotron, with a silhouette of Orr flying through the air in the background.
However, you may want to consider what date you book the room for. One night rates can vary from $500-$2,000 depending on the time of year, or if the team is playing in the postseason or not. With the hotel located less than a ten minute cab ride from the Garden, this suite may be the perfect way to end your night after watching the hometown heroes hit the ice. If the price tag is a hard pill to swallow, know that a portion of the proceeds will go to the Bobby Orr Hall of Fame located in Orr’s hometown of Parry Sound, Ontario.
This may not be a regular stay for the average Bruins fan, but it is certainly a bucket list item for those that are willing to fork over the cash for a completely unique experience.
Someone better be in the process of developing a TB12-themed suite, because if this room is a hit, then there very well could be a market for this type of thing with other local legends in the future.
