I too have sticker shock looking at the prices of nice hotels in downtown Boston. We are just starting to plan our trip for mid August. Wondering if anyone can suggest a nice suburban hotel very close to the "T" that might be a 10-20 minute trip into downtown that might be more affordable. We are a single mom and teenage daughter. We will be returning late some evenings so a close location to the T and safe area to walk back to the hotel in will be important. $200/night is a comfortable amount. But, will go higher if necessary.
Thanks so much!
