Some opinions about places to stay in Boston.
"Quincy Market/Harborfront, and the Back Bay are probably the two most popular areas for tourists to base themselves. There's tons of restaurants, stores, shops, and city landmarks in both areas. Both are very lively, quite safe areas, with a good mix of locals and tourists."
"Back Bay would be best IMOP. Downtown crossing is pretty seedy but the seedy part is only like 200 yards of Washington street so it's not a big deal....but still with the choice Back Bay is better."
"Boston is absolutely a walking city -- no matter where you stay, you'll be able to get around easily. And, if you don't want to walk, the subway is simple to use. Near Boston Commons is the heart of the city if that's what you have in mind, but pretty expensive."
"Back Bay, Copley, Downtown - are some of the words used by guidebooks and sites to describe tourist area downtown. Any would be walking distance to almost everything."
Some opinions about the hotels and the locations:
Boston Harbor Hotel: "We stayed at this hotel for three nights to see the sights of Boston for the first time before heading up to Maine for a family vacation. The location of the hotel was perfect for us. Since it is located right on Rowes Wharf, it's within walking distance to Quincy Market, Feneuil Hall and the North End."
Mandarin Oriental Boston: "First time at the Mandarin Oriental and the place is magnificent: the location is perfect; the staff is friendly and helpful; the spa was exceptional and there is not one thing I can think of that needs improvement! Although it was quite expensive, for a special occasion this is the place to stay!"
Hotel Commonwealth: "We didn't know much about Boston, but the Commonwealth Hotel was an excellent choice. It is centrally located which made everything easy to get to. The hotel itself is well appointed, very clean and the service was so professional and very pleasant. I will defintiley go back and will recommend the place to my friends."
The Lenox Hotel: "What a great place to stay in this wonderful city, this is old fashioned hospitality at it's best, bedrooms delightful and staff could not have been more helpful. Don't think twice about where to stay when you are in Boston - the Lenox is the best!"
XV Beacon: "Great location, close to: the start of the Freedom Trail and most of the historic landmarks on the Trail; Faneuil Hall for food/shopping; downtown; the pier and the Legal Seafood in the area; the T and a few of its lines; a convenience store. We will stay here again on our next visit to Boston."
The Back Bay Hotel: "The location is terrific (easy walking distance to Copley Square, the public gardens, subway, etc). I would highly recommend and would stay there again."
Fairmont Battery Wharf: "First visit to this hotel and what a great choice. It is in a great location for the waterfront and a short walk to downtown. Definitely good place to stay for a business or personal trip."
Ames A Morgans Original: "Great service. The staff was friendlyh and helpful. We were in town to see a Sox game. The location provided us easy access to Quincy Market, the North end, The Commons, and the T. Would definately stay here again. Nice rooms and great baths."
Nine Zero Hotel: "Nine Zero is a small botique hotel perfectly located for a family tour of Boston. The location couldn't have been better - walking distance to many attractions and close to the subway for others."
Colonnade Hotel: "The Boston "T" or subway is right out the front door and three stops away is the historic Freedom Trail. Across the street is the Duckmobile Tours that go around the historic sites and downtown as well as on the Charles River. They start in front of the Convention Center(across the street) which has plenty of shopping, hotels, restaurants, as well as a nice food court. Ideal location and fantastic place to stay!"
Four Seasons Hotel Boston: "The location of the hotel is as good as you can get in Boston, directly opposite the Commons. There are wonderful restaurant options both within the hotel and nearby. he beautiful, historic Beacon Hill part of town is directly across the Boston Commons from the hotel. There are so many nice and interesting places within an easy walk. Great city and a great hotel."
The Inn At St Botolph: "The location in a lovely old neighborhood was excellent, being a stones throw from the Prudential Centre and Copely Plaza shopping malls, as well as the restaurants and shops in nearby Newbury Street. Grate place to stay in Boston."
Radisson Hotel Boston: "The hotel was located in just the right spot for us. We were able to walk to it from the Back Bay train station and we were able to access the public transportation easily. We like to walk so two blocks to a station was not an issue. There were plenty of taxi cabs and buses available although we did not need to use them. The roof top area is the perfect place to unwind and chill out after a busy day site seeing and shopping in Boston."
Courtyard Marriot Boston: "We loved the hotel because it was close enough (within a couple blocks) to walk to the subway, Boston Commons, entrance to the Freedom Trail, Trolley stop, bars/restaurants and in the heart of the Theater district. Now that I am familiar with the city, I would definitely stay here again."
Marriott`s Custom House: "Excellent location near Fanuiel Hall and Boston Aquarium and Boston's North End restaurants. Great views of Boston Harbor and surrounding area. There is no pool, but it is possible to swim at the nearby Marriott Long Wharf (just across the Greenway)."
Chandler Inn: "Stayed here for the first time it it def won't be the last.A lovely little boutiquey hotel which was perfect for a few nights in Boston to explore. Close to where I needed to be, the area was nice and I felt safe, I came back to the hotel late one evening well past midnight."
