We are considering a trip to Boston August 14th - 18th and I am trying to find a hotel under $150 per night that is in the suburbs but within walking distance to the T. Ideally, the hotel would have a pool as well. I have already looked at hotels in town and they are over our budget especially with the $30-$40 per day parking fee for our car.
I do not like to use Priceline or Hotwire for family travel because I have been burned a couple times be getting stuck with a smoking room, a room with one bed for four people, or the worst room in the hotel (Next to elevators, above the bars etc...)
We have two kids - 7 and 10, and we plan to do the Aquarium, a whale boat tour, and the freedom trail for sure plus some of the other kid friendly museums and activities.
I spent 30-40 minutes looking at threads that popped up when I searched "Hotels close to T" and either get threads that say to search "Hotels close to T" or discussions of hotels that require shuttles to get to T station. I specifically want to be able to walk to T station.
Thank you in advance for all of your help! We are very excited to visit Boston as it will be our first visit to the New England area. We are hoping to get to know Boston and then stay a couple nights on Cape Cod or on a beach in RI before heading home.
