Plans Approved to Open Former Ames Hotel as Dorm

Order Reprints...

The Boston Planning and Development Agency (BPDA) board has approved a plan for Suffolk University to convert the former Ames Hotel into a 300-bed student dormitory.

In September, the university acquired the former luxury hotel for $63.5 million with plans to convert it into a dorm in time for the 2020-2021 school year. The property was built in the early 1890s as an office building.

At its first ever remote public hearing, the BPDA board approved the conversion of the 114-room hotel building into student housing.
