My husband and I are travelling to Boston in July with our 16 month old. I am looking for a reasonably priced (under $170/night) hotel with free parking that is walking distance (in a safe area) to the subway. We have travelled a bit, are not really picky and don’t need a fancy hotel. Ideally, we don’t want to spend a long time on the subway to get into downtown.
Can anyone recommend a hotel that fits these criteria?
I was looking at the Holiday Inn Express (69 Boston St), and it seems like it is close to the subway, and it’s about a 10 minute ride to Boston Common, so that is the frontrunner at the moment (assuming my research is correct about the location and subway ride). Are there any major issues with this hotel? Am I correct in assuming that downtown is only a short ride away?
I was looking at some hotels near the airport, but those seem to be at least a 30 minute ride away.
Thanks in advance for your help!
