Ask a Genealogist: Looking for a hotel in 19th century Boston.

 Permanent link


I have the diary of my ancestor for 1886.  In the diary he mentions staying at the St. Belmar in Boston.  I do not see that this hotel is still around.  Can you tell me where it was in Boston?


Reply from David Allen Lambert, Chief Genealogist                                                                                                                                           The Saint Belmar Hotel was located at 854 Washington Street in Boston.  It appears listed City directories as early as 1870's, and was in existence at that address into the 1920's.  From an observation of the local area the structure does not appear to be still standing.
