Rooms have windows and look into the past with photos of the old elevated Orange Line.

Guests know exactly where they are when they stay at the Chandler Studios Boston in the South End. The walls in each of the 12 accommodations feature outsize murals of the old elevated Orange Line and the windows offer views of street life as well as glimpses of the neighbors’ more private roof decks and elaborately landscaped pocket backyards. Chandler Studios is “great for sophisticated travelers who like their independence,” says general manager Gretchen Chauncey. Guests check in at sister property Chandler Inn (26 Chandler St.) and are escorted to Chandler Studios. They are given a four-digit PIN code to enter the building and another to gain access to their own studio.

The arrangement works equally well for business or leisure travelers, who can opt for one of the “traditional” studios or the larger one-bedroom unit. Bed choices include king, queen, or two doubles and some studios also have pull-out sofa beds. All have cute kitchenettes with a two-burner stove, sink, and mini-refrigerator. Decor is clean-lined and rather spare with sleek, minimalist light fixtures and 42-inch plasma TVs. There is even enough storage so that guests can keep things neat. Bright pops of red accessories throughout are a reminder that Chandler Studios sits in one of Boston’s most stylish neighborhoods. Even more coveted than closets, the Studios have four parking spaces available by reservation on a first-come, first-served basis.

CHANDLER STUDIOS BOSTON 54 Berkeley St., 617-482-3450, www.chandlerstudiosboston.com . $260-$415, parking $30 per night.
