Boston Hotels and Accommodation
(Boston, Massachusetts - MA, USA)
Hotels in Boston tend to be amongst the most expensive in the USA, although the high lodging rates are certainly seasonal. Boston accommodation is especially pricey during the weekends of May, when college graduations attract large numbers of visitors to the city.
The summer months are always a busy period in Boston, when the more popular hotels soon become full. Early autumn is also popular, with crowds of tourists coming here to marvel at the wonderful New England fall colors each year. Worth noting, many hotels do tend to cater for business visitors, and so may reduce their rates at the weekends, when they are at their quietest. The cold winter months are the best time to vacation here if you are looking for cheap accommodation and big discounts.
Many visitors to Boston choose to stay in the city centre, with hotels being particularly close to Copley Square, the Faneuil Hall Marketplace and the Back Bay. The South End district is known for its highly affordable B&Bs and guest houses, which are grouped around West Brookline Street.
Also worth considering are the hotels within the Theater District of Boston, which tend to be slightly cheaper than their equivalent accommodation in the Back Bay and are conveniently close to the Public Garden on Arlington Street, and the enticing Chinatown district. Alternatively, nearby Cambridge is a sensible alternative to downtown Boston, being well connected by the 'T' subway and home to the famous Harvard University.
