Hotel suite celebrates Boston rock club The Rat

BOSTON (AP) — One of Boston's swankiest hotels is paying tribute to a dingy rock club. The Hotel Commonwealth next month will start renting a room called the Rathskeller Suite, named after the club of the same name. Known simply known as The Rat, the club hosted bands that went on to become the biggest names in rock music, including The Ramones, The Police and Metallica. The Rat was a classic basement dive — dirty, smelly, dark and grungy. It closed in 1997. The Boston Globe (http://bit.ly/1qgN0D3 ) reports that the room at the hotel, built on the site where the club once stood, will be filled with Rat memorabilia, including the dressing room mirror covered in band stickers and items left behind by the bands. It will cost up to $1,095 per night. ___ Information from: The Boston Globe, http://www.bostonglobe.com
