Where to Stay in Boston
Boston’s diverse selection of neighborhoods and accommodations cater to travelers of all tastes. If you want to be within walking distance of some of Boston’s most recognizable landmarks, book a room in the city’s North End district. Boasting several of Boston’s historic hotels, the posh neighborhood of Back Bay features the city’s best boutique shopping. For those looking for a more intimate stay, check into one of the bed and breakfasts located in Boston’s eclectic South End neighborhood.
Boston Hotel Tips
When to book your Boston flight and hotel will depend on what you plan to do in the city. For those looking to cool down in the summertime, Boston offers some shelter from the heat, with temperatures floating in the 70s during the warmest months. However, if you have an aversion to the cold, avoid Boston’s winters. During the most frigid month of January, temperatures can drop to well below freezing.
Because the city claims a number of academic institutions, including Harvard, Emerson, MIT and Boston University, you may have difficulty finding discount room rates during the spring graduation season. A prime time to book a hotel is in the autumn, after the city’s summer spike in tourism has declined but before the winter weather blows in.
Boston Hotel Recommendations
Not only can you stroll around Boston’s many historic landmarks, you can actually stay in one. Built in 1900, The Lenox offers visitors luxurious accommodations in one of the city’s most happening neighborhoods. Book one of the boutique’s spacious corner rooms and take in stunning views of the picturesque Charles River while warming yourself by your in-room fireplace.
Located near Boston’s bustling Quincy Market, the Millennium Bostonian Hotel is sleek and stylish in design. Hit up nearby attractions such as the New England Aquarium, the historic North End and the many outdoor and indoor shops and restaurants that make up Faneuil Hall Marketplace. Afterward, rest up on your comfy pillow-top bed.
If you’re trying to find discount rates without sacrificing quality, consider a stay at the Clarendon Square Inn. This quaint boutique bed and breakfast is located in the artsy South End neighborhood. Amenities include a rooftop hot tub and a 24-hour espresso and tea bar.
Along with New York and Chicago, Boston has one of the best public transit systems in the country. Known as the “T,” this system is home to the first subway in the U.S. The subway, which consists of five separate lines, carries travelers throughout downtown Boston and beyond. If you’re flying into Boston’s Logan International Airport (BOS), you can take the system’s blue line into downtown.
Boston also features an extensive system of buses, a regional commuter rail system and several ferry routes out of Boston Harbor. Because the Boston’s downtown area is fairly compact, walking from destination to destination is an easy and affordable way to see the city.
