Hi everyone. I was last in Boston in January and I was on this site quite a bit since the advice and tips on hotels, restaurants and sites is always so good. So, any help would be greatly appreciated.
We (two of us), are either driving from NJ on Friday or flying into Logan on Saturday morning. In either event, we will be leaving Sunday, either mid-afternoon if we drive and early evening if we fly. I think we are going to stay at either the Ritz (not sure which one---but probably the one with the fireplace(s) or the Four Seasons). I hear, or rather read, that one of the Ritz is in a so-so location and the other is old and ehhh. I also hear that the Four Seasons is great. By the way, before I start with my question----we got a great deal on those hotels because a friend of mine gets discounts (i.e. approx. $250-$375 per night, depending on the size and view in the rooms). So, my question would be, which Ritz is better....and how does it compare to the Four Seasons? Secondly, does anyone have an opinion on either staying at a decent room at, let's say the Four Seasons, or a suite at a lesser hotel, i.e. Fairmount Copley or Jury's?
Also, since we will only be in Boston for 2 days max....any ideas on where to spend our time? Anything in Boston that "can't be missed?" Does the Duck tour operate in early November?
Any ideas on a good place for dinner? When we were last in Boston, we ate seafood at a hotel near Fenway. I do not remember the name of the restaurant or hotel....but the restaurant was great.
Any other tips/advice on anything else regarding Boston would be great. Thanks so much for any help.....
