How much luggage and how many people?
Do you have enough hands to manage the luggage? I would skip the water taxi if you have tons of luggage.
Sorry, I'm not quite clear on this. Option 1 is drive to the the Lenox to drop off the luggage, then drive to Logan to Logan to drop off the rental car, then take a taxi back to the Lenox?? Wow. Sounds like a big extra step to me. By the way, the Water taxi is of no help to you. The Lenox is in Back Bay, so you'd have to take a taxi from the Harbor - yet ANOTHER step. So unless you have a lot of people traveling with you, just get rid of the car and take a taxi. BUT one more question. Can you leave the car Downtown instead of at the airport?? That would make this work much better.
Hey Alanm thanks, not thought of trying to leave car downtown!
Great idea will look into it.
If you take luggage on the T to or from Logan. From Airport you take a free bus to the Blue Line Terminal. Take the Blue Line to Government Center and transfer to the Green Line. Take the Green Line to Copley station. A one block walk to the Lenox.
The key is how many bags do you have. I was travelling with my 11 year old son. Had two suitcases, his carryon duffel and my carryon briefcase.
You will need to lift your luggage on to the shuttle bus Up a few steps and on to the luggage rack.
The Blue Line is easy - luggage rolls right on. The car and the loading platform are the same level.
The Green Line is a pain. Most of the green line cars are trolley cards. They do not meet the platform and they have three steps up to get into the car. More lifting of the luggage to get it up.
There is an escalator up from the Copley Station to Boylston Street. But no escaltor down for when you leaving. More picking up and carrying bags.
If you are in decent shape and have enough help - you can carry all the luggage on the T - but if you may have more bags than able bodied people to carry them - you may want to reconsider.
