My husband and I plan on spending a weekend in Boston enjoying the historical sites and the other things the city has to offer. We are stuck between staying at the Harborside Inn on State Street (across the street from the Quincy Market) or Hotel 140 which is located near Copley Square in the Back Bay area of the city.
Can anyone tell us which one of those hotels/areas of the city would be best centrally located for us to leave our car parked and walk/take the subway (if it's safe, is it?) to the historical areas and other areas of the city? We'd certainly like to do the Freedom Trail, see the Boston Harbor and Granary Burying Ground (graveyard).
Any comments on the hotels themselves?
