Boston Hotel Insider
Fans cheering at Fenway Park, schoolchildren marvelling at historic Faneuil Hall, academics sweating it out at one of the city’s many universities, or musicians in black tie gearing up for an evening at the Pops are all typical sights and sounds of Boston, a historic New England ... read more
city that has long been a top American destination. Here’s our guide to the best places to stay, whatever your price range.

Luxury Hotels in Boston
Boston’s best luxury hotels are also some of its most historic. The Fairmont Copley Plaza was built in 1912 and combines history with modern day amenities like a rooftop health club. Try their Oak Bar for a hand-crafted cocktail. The neighboring Lenox Hotel was built in 1900 for just $1 million - a fortune at the time. Gold interiors and heavy drapes give off a classic air fit to make anyone feel rich. The luxurious Omni Parker House, first opened in 1855 and situated along the Freedom Trail, also invented the Boston crème pie, making it a great choice for a luxury family getaway. All three are also excellent choices for business travellers. The Boston Harbor Hotel is located on one of the oldest wharfs in the nation, making it a great option for those who want to delve into the city’s fascinating history without sacrificing any amenities.

Mid-Range Boston Hotels
There are many mid-range hotels within the city limits as well, including the large chains Best Western, Courtyard by Marriott, Hampton Inn, Hilton, and Hyatt Regency. If independence is more your style, choose from one of the many privately-owned lodging options, including The Charlesmark, The Harborside Inn, and the Seaport Hotel Boston.

Families traveling to Boston might consider such family-friendly hotels as the Colonnade Hotel in the Back Bay area, which often offers weekend getaway packages for those traveling with kids; the Royal Sonesta in Cambridge, which hosts a Summerfest during July and August; and the Doubletree Guest Suites, ideal for parents looking for a little more privacy during their vacation. Mid-priced hotels in Boston range in cost from about $150 to $225 per night. Lower priced options are available but prices under $150 are rare except during shoulder seasons.

Hotels by Neighborhood
The Freedom Trail is a stretch of brick pathway that winds through the city and visits 17 significant historical sites including Old North Church, the Boston Common, Paul Revere House, Faneuil Hall, the Massachusetts State House, the USS Constitution, and several burial grounds. Hotels near the Freedom Trail include the high-end, Beaux Arts-style XV Beacon, the mid-range Boston Marriott Long Wharf, or the very affordable, and even pet-friendly, MidTown Hotel.

Exploring Cambridge’s Harvard University, buzzy Harvard Square, and the quaint streets of the area right up to the Charles River is another popular focus for a trip to Boston. The Ivy League institution is close to a number of cool hotels. The Charles Hotel is a perfect spot and includes a lively jazz club and an ice skating rink during the winter months. Similarly, the Hyatt Regency Cambridge is just steps from Harvard Square and features the good service and lovely facilities you’d expect from Hyatt.

If you’re coming to Boston for the baseball and the chance to watch a game at historic Fenway Park, you’ve chosen well. This 1912-built park is the oldest in use in Major League Baseball. The historic Boston Hotel Buckminster, in the Kenmore Square neighborhood, is walking distance to the park. The Hotel Commonwealth is our pick for luxury, but if you’re feeling a bit more frugal the Howard Johnson Inn Fenway Park is a perfectly good choice.

    Liberty Hotel

    Swanky! We stayed here on a Friday night and the lobby was jumping with a young hip crowd. The fact that it used to be an old prison is really cool, and they've done a great job using that to create a very stylish place to stay and hang out.

    I avoid Logan when I can. It's an old, crowded airport that's hard to get to and get away from, and picking up a rental car is a pain. However, it tends to be much cheaper than the alternatives.

    Birthplace of the Boston cream pie! Well, it didn't quite live up to the excitement, as the pie was tasty but not spectacular. The hotel itself is upscale and elegant.

    This is what I think when I hear the phrase “luxury hotel”: a roaring fireplace in the lobby, old-fashioned bellhops, a décor heavy on gold. The rooms are slightly old-fashioned in style, with paintings and carved wooden headboards instead of the kind of sleek faux-modern style you’ll sometimes see in a lot of higher-end resorts. I did think the fitness ...

    Unlike so many of today’s major hotels, the rooms and lobby here are colorful and bright as opposed to dull and blandish brown. I really appreciated that touch, and it kind of extends to the whole property, which manages to walk the line between stylish and ridiculous more or less successfully. The building itself makes a statement: you’ll notice it ...

    In a brief visit to the XV Boston, I was really impressed by the style, understated elegance, and friendliness of this little boutique hotel. I've spent most of my time in Europe over the last few years and so have had limited contact with American hotels, but this one made me proud to be a Yank.

    The harbor view rooms are very nice and allow you to take in the entire waterfront, not just the canal. The architecture of the hotel itself is worth at least a few pictures, both outside and in. Everything feels wonderfully stately and old-fashioned, from the wooden dressers to the paintings on the walls. There’s a floating stage that has live ...

    One of the most prominent hotels in downtown Boston and it’s certainly jammed with luxuries. The amenities for each room are impressive: robes, soaps, safes, even umbrellas (these may be indispensable if you come between February and May). The restaurant has a nice rotating menu with a bunch of different seasonal specials and is open late. The location is clearly ...

    I don't think I've ever come to a city to give out so many five star reviews as I have for Boston. Despite it's high price tag on its own website, the Ames Hotel is quite reasonably booked through Orbitz or other travel sites to find deals. My friends have even had great luck on priceline by naming their own ...

    To the person who managed a $90/night for this place on priceline, SCORE for you! Although I keep telling myself I don't like chain hotels which is mostly true, I find that the Westin or W hotels are mostly exceptionally nice and almost belong in a boutique-ish chain hotel of its own along with the InterContinentals and Ames (sort of). ...

    The setup of this hotel is a little unique, as each of its three buildings are connected by criss-crossing walkways. This might be a little confusing at first but there are plenty of signs. It’s not a huge skyscraper but it certainly doesn’t feel outdated. In fact, there are attempts to be state-of-the-art (the minibar is motion-activated: really cool) but ...

    I haven't stayed overnight at the Copley, but I did attend a function held in The Grand Ballroom which was, to say the least, breathtaking. The crystal chandeliers, balconies, and gilded framework make it seem like something straight out of a Disney movie. If you're looking for a place to have a wedding or wedding reception, this space is something ...
