The best places to stay in downtown Boston

Posted On: 09/23/2019

The city of Boston was founded in 1630 by English Puritans fleeing religious persecution. It has since turned into a sprawling metropolis, a city of almost 700,000 inhabitants sprawling more than 230 kilometers. Boston’s rich history and the important place it holds in global education, politics, and sports, means that its a city full of architectural magnificence — from traditional, centuries-old brownstones to modern glass monstrosities. Its hotels are no different — we’ve pulled together the very best places to stay in Boston, for styles and tastes of all kinds.

The Verb Hotel, located at 1271 Boylston Street, was once a motor inn, founded in 1959. Today, it’s a beautifully and stylishly restored boutique hotel that draws retro inspiration from its automotive history. This hotel is bright, fun, and filled with nostalgia. There’s also a pool, sundeck, and pool-view rooms. It’s also incredibly affordable, but fills up fast.

If you’re in town for sports, there’s no better place than the Hotel Commonwealth, a colonial-style yet modern hotel located a stone’s throw away from Fenway Park. This hotel is the one for you if you’re looking for a quintessentially New England experience, as well as big rooms, pet-friendly accommodation, and incredible onsite restaurants. The Hotel Commonwealth is also located incredibly near Boston University and the Museum of Fine Arts.

For something more elegant, The Eliot Hotel is one of the most old-world grand hotels in the city. The grand neo-Georgian building has been there since 1925, and its limited number of rooms (95 in total, most of which are suites) means that you’ll receive top-notch personal service.

For those who want all the amenities with no extra fancy bells and whistles, almost every major hotel chain has a Boston residence. From the Hyatt to the Hilton and everything in between, you’ll be able to find a spacious, clean room for a reasonable price.
