Bostonians are a proud pack -- and why shouldn’t they be? The Hub is home to some of America’s richest history (hello, first subway system in the U.S.), best food (if only we could all cook like Barbara Lynch) and winningest sports teams (can you say dy-na-sty?). Depending on what brings you to the area -- the endless crannies of Instagram-worthy cobblestoned streets, overflowing bowls of New England clam chowder, or the colleges on every other corner -- making a choice of hotel can be daunting.
Luckily, Boston is a pretty walkable city (you could feasibly make it from the North End to the Museum of Fine Arts in a day), so you can’t go wrong wherever you’re staying. Make sure to look for a nearby train stop since parking can be a pain -- and aim for something near the MBTA’s Green, Orange or Red lines.
