We'll be doing some college visits next week and need to stay overnight in Boston for morning visit to Emerson and afternoon visit to Harvard. I don't know the proximity of one college to the other. Can we stay in a Cambridge location and easily get to Emerson for the morning visit? It seems the hotels in the Theatre District are a little more pricey than ones in Cambridge. I'm basing this on 3.5* to 4* Hotwire rates.
Any recommendations are welcome. If everything is easily accessible by foot or a reasonable taxi rate then I won't feel locked in to locations near Emerson (since it's the first visit in morning). If Cambridge is a cheap taxi away than we'd rather stay in less expensive hotel.
Just don't know the lay of the Boston land.
