Archer Hotel Now Open at 3rd Ave


A unique luxury hotel is now open at 3rd Ave in Burlington.


The Archer Hotel, a boutique property with 147 guest rooms and suites, will open its doors and welcome guests for the first time today, February 13.  


“The highly anticipated hotel, sure to be one of the most talked-about properties in this area in years, is filled with curated luxuries, thoughtful touches and local discoveries, all of which are at the core of this award-winning brand’s success,” a release states.


Archer Hotels are boutique establishments that have garnered a name for themselves by landing on some of the better known “Best Of” lists in publications like Condé Nast Traveler and Travel + Leisure. The Burlington hotel marks the first suburban property for the brand, which is owned and developed by LodgeWorks Partners, L.P. There are currently locations in New York City, Austin, Texas and in Napa, California.

Nordblom Company, which owns 3rd Ave, has supported the project from the start. Nordblom’s Senior Vice President and Director of Mixed-Use Projects, Todd Fremont-Smith, said the Archer Hotel fit with the theme of 3rd Ave., which has been filled with more unique and high-end restaurants and stores. He said Nordblom has tried to avoid large chains when selecting which businesses to locate there.


In the release, Archer Hotel says each room at the hotel is distinct.


“The 147 rooms feature a variety of design palettes, which is a signature element of Archer Hotel,” the release states. “With a residential nod to the notion that no two bedrooms should be alike, Archer Burlington has four distinct layouts, lending themselves to the feel of welcoming residences. The choices include Classic King guest rooms and Double King guest rooms – with two king beds, perfect for families or friends traveling together. The Deluxe King Studio, a suite option, melds form and function with a king platform bed, a living area, ample workspace and a fully stocked wet bar. The hotel’s largest accommodations at 570 square feet are Archer’s Dens; a private balcony makes this special-edition suite the ultimate suburban sanctuary. Archer’s Den is a one-bedroom suite which offers a separate living area furnished with a comfy chesterfield-style sofa, side chair and a 55-inch flat-screen TV. Combine this with the fully-stocked wet bar with movable counter-height island and this room is the perfect option for longer stays and entertaining.”


Each room also has “complimentary Nespresso coffee experience, Frette bathrobes, Malin +Goetz bath amenities, free Wi-Fi and Archer’s signature his and her slippers (his with a moustache, hers with red lips), a keepsake to take home.”


“Complimentary services ranging from Wi-Fi throughout to overnight shoeshine on request are intended to make guests feel truly appreciated,” the release continues. “One of the best examples of Archer’s dedication to details is the nightly rotation of locally curated and house-made turndown treats. Guests will enjoy Boston Baked Beans from Ferrara Candy Company, Artisan Chocolates from EH Chocolatier, Fancy Fortune Cookies from Fancy Fortune Cookie Co. with custom fortunes from Archer, Whoopie Pie from LaCacia’s Bakery & Deli, and Marshmallow Fluff Rice Krispie Treats from its namesake Marshmallow Fluff. Arrivals at Archer are met with a welcome amenity of bottled water and handmade salted caramels by The Candy Dish, a nouveau Boston-area artisan confectionery.”


Finally, the hotel features over 7,000 square feet of indoor meeting and event space, including a 2,300 square foot divisible Great Room, Hospitality Lounge (975 sq. ft.) and Boardroom (445 sq. ft.), as well as 2,200 square feet of outdoor patio space.  There is also an indoor pool, fitness studio and library.
