Rumor has it The Chandler Inn has been sold

Boston Chandler InnI was recently approached by a reader of this blog who let me know that the Chandler Inn, a 50+ room, boutique hotel in the South End, has been sold. I did a little nosing around and it appears the friend of this blog was correct. From what I’ve learned, last week the staff was made aware of the sale which is either pending or just happened.

The Chandler Inn has some significance to Boston’s gay community because many LGBTQ travelers stay there, the ground level bar and restaurant, Trophy Room, is one of a very few gay bars that remain in Boston and each year after the Pride parade finishes a large outdoor block party virtually surrounds the hotel.

Details of the sale are a bit sketchy but it sounds like it was purchased by Pineapple Hospitality Company, a Seattle-based boutique hotel chain with properties on the west coast and in Chicago. At this time it doesn’t appear as if any changes are imminent. If anyone has any details to share about the sale, feel free to reach out to me directly.
