We're taking a fall foliage cruise out of Boston in Sept. 2015. I know it's too early to book a hotel, but I thought I would get some ideas here.
We'll also be spending a couple of days after the cruise with our daughter who will be a grad student at Tufts University. Flying out from California.
So, for the night before our cruise all we want is the cheapest hotel/motel or B&B within close taxi proximity to the port. We won't be doing any sightseeing that day. Just a clean, but simple place to sleep before embarking the next morning. I'm even up for something like a Motel 6! ;)
Last year I was fortunate to find Last Minute Travel here and booked the Marriott Copley Place for 4 nights last August. I'm going to see if I can find something similar for a couple nights AFTER the cruise. Since our daughter will be in classes most of the day, we would like to stay in the city and venture out to Medford to see her.
But, as I said, we just want a basic room the night BEFORE our cruise to save a few dollars. I doubt they would have anything like that on LMT. :)
