Alternative Hotel close to Sheraton Boston (39 Dalton...

Hello,

For a conference at the end of October I need a hotel for a week in Boston. The conference will be held in the Sheraton Boston (39 Dalton Street, Prudential Center), but the prices there don't really meet my budget.

Which more reasonably priced (that's not necesarilly cheap, but cheaper than the Sheraton :-) ) are there near the Sheraton?

Cheers!

Check out the Boston Park Plaza hotel. It's on Arlington St. and is not a far walk from the Pru Center.

There's a Marriott and a Westin in Copley Place. Both of these can be pretty pricey but they may have packages available.

There's also the Courtyard Copley Square that is getting very good reviews on this site.

There is a Westin and a Marriott at Copley Place which is attached via a walkway to the Prudential Center which the Sheraton abuts. You may want to try the Back Bay Hilton - the Colonade Hotel (on Huntington Avenue) or if you're looking for a budget stretcher you can try the Midtown Motor Inn which is next door to the Colonade but definitely not in the same class as the others mentioned. Good Luck

Thanks for your replies.

I noticed on the map that for example the Courtyard Copley Square is located north of the highway and railroad.

I will have to walk to and from the hotel to the conference centre, is there a special safe passage or will I need to first dodge cars and speeding trains to arrive ;-)

The turnpike is underground in the Pru/Hynes area. The commuter-rail lines are right next to it. Where it's at ground level, every major street has an overpass. No worries there.

The Copley Square Hotel is another "budget" alternative that's a hop, skip, and jump from the convention center. Bear in mind that it, along with the other less-expensive hostelries such as the Park Plaza, Midtown, et al, draw decidedly mixed reviews which have a negative slant.

For a smaller scale of accommodations, there's the Oasis Guest House to consider. It's one long block and one short block west of the Sheraton and the Hynes, not far beyond Mass. Ave but you'd never know it was that close from how quiet it is. The major disadvantage of it is that there are no "good" restaurants in the immediate vicinity, just run-of-the-mill pizza/sub shops and chain outlets.

Just about any hotel or B & B with an address in zip codes 02115, 02116, or 02118 would be an easy walk from the convention area.

I also have a conference at the Prudential Center, but mine is in late November. I ended up booking at the Copley House. It actually rents small apartments ranging from studios to one bedrooms ranging in price from $85 - $135 a night. I am excited about having a kitchen and being only a 5 minute walk away from the conference. You might want to check it out. Their website is www.copleyhouse.com
