We'll be flying in and out of Boston (Logan Airport) on a trip next summer. We'll be staying in Boston (downtown) at the beginning of our trip and touring New England, and then ending our trip in Newport, RI before flying home from Logan Airport again.
Our flight leaves at 10AM, so I am trying to decide if we should drive up from RI the morning of our flight or leave RI a day earlier and overnight in a Boston airport hotel. I've heard rush hour traffic in the Boston area can be really bad, so I am thinking of the airport hotel. The Hilton Logan Airport looks nice, but at $300. just to overnight, that's quite ridiculous.
