Washington: The 80-year-old Ritz Carlton, America's longest, continuously-run hotel and a Boston landmark, has become part of Tata 's Indian Hotels group and will be known as Taj Boston.

"Boston's most beloved hotel" is the newest addition to the 105-year-old Taj Group's collection of 76 fine hotels, resorts and palaces in over 52 destinations, 12 countries and five continents, the company announced in a full page advertisement in US media.

"Already the Grand Dame of Boston, the hotel maintains a rich heritage that Taj will both preserve and and enrich," it said promising "luxury beyond your wildest dreams".

Indian Hotels (IHCL), which runs hotels and resorts under the Taj brand, is reported to have acquired the Ritz-Carlton for $170 million through its US subsidiary, International Hotel Management Service.

Located on Boston's fashionable Newbury Street, surrounded by art galleries, boutiques and restaurants, the hotel opened for business in 1927 and was bought by its previous owners Millennium Partners of New York in 1999 for $122 million. It has recently completed its $60 million restoration project returning the classic hotel to its old splendor. A collection of original art and antiques is on display throughout the hotel with 273 guest rooms on 12 floors.
