Hipmunk City Love: Economical Boston Hotels
Traveling to Boston can make for an expensive trip, though there’s no need to shell out too much for the place you choose to stay. Routinely ranking as one of the cities with the highest hotel rates in the US, hotels downtown can commonly cost well over three hundred dollars a night.
Though for those willing to sacrifice a few bells and whistles to find a great deal downtown, it’s still possible to find accommodation which is comfortable, clean, and an affordable place to stay. The following hotels will save you hundreds of dollars. Spend the savings on dining out, shopping, or taking in a game.
Boston Hotel Buckminster
In a great area of Boston incredibly close to Fenway Park and Boston University, the prices at Boston Hotel Buckminster can’t be beat! Less than a block away from Fenway Park, other attractions within walking distance include Museum of Fine Arts, Charles River, and Boston Common.
A true bargain hotel, although with dated furnishings and décor, guest rooms are comfortable. (The rates might be pricy when games or concerts are happening at Fenway.)
Traveling to Boston for the marathon? Charlesmark Hotel is directly opposite the finish line! In a great spot in Boston’s Back Bay, this is a small European style boutique with modern furnishings and décor, and a range of great amenities including an extensive library offering movie rentals for guests.
A bargain hotel with luxury touches, be sure to book well in advance. With only 33 rooms, the property usually sells out.
Another bargain hotel in a fantastic area, Hotel 140 is a boutique property on Claredon Street between Boston’s trendiest neighborhoods, Back Bay and South End. It’s easy to reach John Hancock Tower, as well as the Theatre District and Copley Square.
Occupying a beautiful building which was once the site of the first YWCA, the building itself is on the National Register of Historic Places. It features a grand lobby and staircase which dates to 1929. Rooms are small and basic, though they include contemporary amenities such as air conditioning, Wi-Fi and LCD televisions.
Affordable and centrally located, this popular hotel in the Back Bay area is a former 1950s-era motel. Décor reflects a retro design from the 50s, though all rooms include contemporary amenities such as flat screen televisions, Wi-Fi, and coffee makers.
The closest hotel to Jordan Hall and Symphony Hall, Midtown Hotel is a convenient base for access to the Museum of Fine Arts.
Chandler Inn Hotel
A stylish hotel which is much more affordable than most located downtown, Chandler Inn offers a great deal of class at an incredibly low cost. A European style hotel with 56 rooms, each guest room is contemporary and chic, offering iPod docks, wireless Internet access, and marble bathrooms and walk-in showers.
A limited service hotel, there is no on-site parking, business center, restaurant, or spa. These services and amenities are all located nearby, and the front desk staff are available 24 hours to help you with your stay.
