The ridiculously quaint and upscale town of Lexington is packed with thrilling stories of our country’s start, expertly told by passionate, costumed interpreters. But the true revolutionary revelation is the property’s unexpected sense of whimsy. The uber-classic exteriors of two mid-1800 homes (and a barn) are packed with contemporary luxury, modern touches of fun, and comfort inside 22 eclectic rooms and suites. This is not your grandmother’s inn, but she would surely approve of the location one block from where the Revolution began and the staff’s above-and-beyond service. Complimentary touches; like a gourmet breakfast, Wi-Fi, parking, bikes, and more make this a smart option, even for nearby Boston stays. InnatHastingsPark.com

Inn at Hastings Park Lexington, MA

Hotel Monaco, Alexandria, VA

Fans of Mercy Street (“How I Met Your Mother’s” Ted Moseby wears a waistcoat well!) can stroll the same cobblestones as the glam Green Family belles, and even visit their former home and luxury-inn-turned-Union Hospital, Mansion House…before retiring to their own luxury digs in the heart of Old Town Alexandria. Personal Porchetta Parties can be arranged on terrace suite balconies, though the real scene is in the tony boutique hotel’s Living Room where guests flock to enjoy cocktails and complimentary wine. This perk-heavy place offers PUBLICK bikes, in-room Gaiam Yoga Mats and “Dive-In” movie nights in the heated pool to work off the excellent noshes from the Jackson 20 tavern. Monaco-Alexandria.com B
