Hotels in Boston

Boston’s hotels are widely varied to accommodate travelers on all different types of budgets. Luxury hotels like the Revere Hotel (named for Boston’s most famous midnight rider) and the Hotel Commonwealth offer premier locations and 5-star amenities, while recognizable chains like Best Western and Embassy Suites start at lower price points. Small bed and breakfasts are also a nice option to look into. One to consider is the cozy, four-room Encore B&B, which is located in the South End neighborhood and within walking distance of Copley Square and Back Bay.

If you’re looking for a low-key hotel in Boston, try A Friendly Inn at Harvard Square. Here, experience the picturesque New England town of Cambridge while still having access to the T (Boston’s metro) that’ll take you into downtown Boston. If you’re planning on sightseeing, The Constitution Inn is a great option. Located in downtown Boston, it’s situated right at the start of the Freedom Trail—a 2.5 mile-long route with 16 historical museums, churches, cemeteries, and meeting houses. With 143 rooms, a fitness center, pool, and convenient location, the Constitution Inn is one of the best hotels in Boston.
