Help needed to find good hotels in Boston..

Hi All..

we are reaching Boston on 16th July and planning to spend 2 or 3 nights in boston .. We'll have our 10 yr old and 15 yr old daughter with us ( Total 4 Pax) ... Will need a hotel with a minimum of 2 queen beds -- perhaps a sleep sofa or room for a cot...

Any hotels to recommend ..??

If we stay in town.. what are the best family friendly hotels..?

Our budget is around $200 per night ...

$200 for a room for four in a Central Boston location is going to be very tough, especially waiting until the last minute. Boston hotels are generally more expensive than that, and your dates are particularly popular. Quite a few suitable hotels are completely sold out this close to travel time, and others have hiked their rates.

I did take a look at LastMinuteTravel.com, looking only at rooms categorized as "available" ("on request" is an extreme long shot). There is very little availability and really nothing suitable within your budget.

Taking a look at Expedia, the Residence Inn Back Bay has a great rate of $207 (+ tax) for a one bedroom suite. That includes full breakfast and a kitchen. It's near Fenway Park and just a bit removed from Central Boston activities, but you can easily take the T and there's interesting stuff do do in the immediate neighborhood as well.

One caveat about this hotel is that they are scheduled to open this month, and I'm not sure that they've opened yet. Delays could affect your booking. I'd check with them. This may be why the price is so much lower than anything else.

Another reasonable option for just a bit over budget would be Holiday Inn Brookline at $217. This is near the T and the immediate area is pleasant, with shops and restaurants. Brookline is just outside of Boston.

The Hyatt Place Medford is available for $159. Two double beds (or one king) and a sleeper sofa, includes breakfast buffet. They have a shuttle to the T.

Will you have a car? If so, that changes things quite a bit. Hyatt Place has free parking. The others don't. You would also have the option of staying in a more distant suburban hotel and driving in, or driving to a T stop.

That is a tight budget for a Boston hotel, especially for 4 people. Do you have a car? If so, you might consider staying in a suburb and driving in, paying to park. Booking.com has the Buckminster Hotel, in Kenmore Square near Fenway Park, for your three night stay for about $737 total, which is a bit over your budget, but that is it.
