I'm planning to visit Boston with my family during the Easter Long weekend. I'm having a dilemma on which hotel/area to stay in (i'm trying to avoid staying in downtown due to expensive hotel). so far I have 3 options:
1 - Stay in Waltham area (Best Western Tlc Hotel for $66 a night)
2 - Stay in Burlington Area (Hyatt House Boston/Burlington for $79 a night)
Drive and park in the city/downtown for these 2 options. How expensive is parking during the weekend in Boston? $15 a day?
3- Stay in South Boston (Courtyard Boston-South Boston for $99 a night)
Take subway for this option. Andrew Station is 6min walk from the hotel. How safe is this area? Will it be dangerous to walk in the neighborhood at night?
I'm leaning towards option 1/2. I feel like I can pay for the downtown parking by saving the $20 on hotel per night.
