March - the month where we hope for warmer weather, start seeing squirrels scramble about, and announce that we’re OPENING A NEW HOTEL IN BOSTON!

That’s right, The Alise Boston is open for business while we pineapple-ize the perfectly located property in the historic Back Bay neighborhood.

You know what this means? A new section in this very blog for the locals and travelers looking to have a great time in the cobblestone clad city.

Let’s see what March has in store for us, and of course, should you find yourself attending an event in one of the cities listed below, a Staypineapple hotel is never far away.
