Boston hotel prices rooms based on Earl’s top speed

As Hurricane Earl weakens, a Boston hotel room special looks more and more enticing.

The first 50 people who book a room for Friday, Sept. 3 at The Back Bay Hotel will pay the dollar equivalent to Earl’s top wind speed. The luxury hotel, located on Stuart Street in the old Boston Police Department headquarters, will price the room based on the hurricane’s highest wind speed reported on between 3 p.m. Friday and noon on Saturday.

The hurricane deal is available through the hotel’s reservation department: 617-266-7200.
