2011 Spring SIW Location Information

Travel tips

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 from
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.

Nearby attractions

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.
