Loews Hotels & Resorts Completes Acquisition and
Rebranding of The Back Bay Hotel in Boston

The 225-room Property will Undergo an $8 Million Renovation


NEW YORK, NY (February 12, 2013) — Loews Hotels & Resorts, a wholly owned-subsidiary of Loews Corporation (NYSE: L), today announced that the company completed the acquisition of the 225-room Back Bay Hotel in Boston. Located at the corner of Berkeley and Stuart Streets, the former Doyle Collection property has immediately been converted to the Loews Hotels brand.  Loews Hotels plans an approximate $8 million renovation scheduled to begin in the fall.

“The Loews Boston Back Bay Hotel is a distinctive property,” said Paul Whetsell, President and CEO of Loews Hotels & Resorts.  “Built in the 1920s, this historic hotel was the former headquarters of the Boston Police Department. The property is in great physical condition, with the renovation targeted to further enhance the guest experience.”

Loews Hotels & Resorts recently acquired and converted the iconic 356-room Madison Hotel in the heart of Washington, D.C. to the Loews Madison Hotel and has two properties under construction in Orlando and Chicago.  This expansion underscores the company’s strategy to add to its portfolio in gateway cities and key resort destinations over the next five years.
