You really don't need a car in downtown Boston. In fact, you don't want a car. Parking is expensive.
There's an MTBA
stop right (Aquarium) right next to the hotel. Aquarium, on the Blue Line, is only two
stops from Logan Airport (a $2.00 ride). Or, for a special experience, you can ride the Logan Ferry
the Airport right to the hotel at Long Wharf (a seven-minute trip) for $1.70. A taxi from the airport will
cost about $20, including tip.
Right across the street from the hotel is Faneuil Hall and Quincy Market
, one of Boston's main shopping
and dining attractions. Here's a list of some 50 restaurants
within easy walking distance, many of them
in the market, others close by. Faneuil (pronounced "fan-yoo-il") Hall is on the world-famous Freedom
Trail (here's an excellent map
) which includes Old Ironsides, Paul Revere's House, and several other historic
points. The Aquarium
is next door to the hotel.
You'll want to bring a warm jacket. Daytime highs average in the low fifties, nighttime lows around 40.
Snow is rare in April, but rain isn't.
