Better Than Tea, Boston History Is Rich With Chocolate

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - Jan 24, 2014) - On your next trip to Boston, consult this sweet infographic from Marriott Hotels & Resorts to learn about Boston's sweet history and where to indulge your love of chocolate.

  • Massachusetts is the proud home of many things, but perhaps the sweetest is America's first chocolate factory, Baker's Chocolate, which opened in 1765. Customers who bought the hard cakes of chocolate used them to make one of our favorite wintertime drinks: hot chocolate.
  • Phillips Candy House opened its doors in 1925 and has been pleasing patrons with their Old Fashioned Fudge, Chocolate Turtles and Truffles ever since.
  • Beloved by children (and adults) across the country, the Toll House cookie was originally dreamed up, perfected and made famous by Ruth Wakefield in 1936 at the Toll House Inn, just outside of Boston.
  • If you can't decide where to get your chocolate fix, consider taking the Original Chocolate Tour. Spend three hours sampling some of the city's finest chocolates and learning about how the founding of the country was actually powered by cacao. Ask the staff at any Marriott Boston hotel for how to get tickets to for the tour.

Marriott Boston hotels are sure to be as pleasing as the perfect Toll House cookie. We offer friendly service, comfortable rooms and luxury amenities in all of our hotels. With 81 locations in the Boston area alone, you're sure to find the perfect place to stay as you visit the landmarks on our infographic.
