Formally known as the Chandler Inn, the Alise Boston was renamed in the first public step in its re-branding as part of the Seattle-based Staypineapple chain which purchased the property in February 2018. The hotel underwent a significant makeover to its aesthetics, service and amenities to make it the embodiment of Staypineapple's vision for what a refined, urban, classic yet modern hotel should be.
Cicero Construction renovated the lobby, along with adding new flooring, paint, pineapple wall coverings, wall sconces, chandeliers and other interior improvements as the hotel received the signature Staypineapple look. Guest rooms were furnished with custom platform bed frames, headboards and dressers, while guests are pampered in European-style bedding including two separate duvets. No changes were made to the hotel's first story facade in a nod to maintaining the historical character of the South End neighborhood. Cicero Construction also renovated Alise Hotels in New York and Chicago.
