These are the most central hotels in Boston, best for sightseeing on a first visit: Boston Common, the Freedom Trail, Faneuil Hall Marketplace, the Aquarium & more.




Boston Common is the center of life in Boston, as it has been for centuries. If you're coming to Boston for sightseeing, consider hotels near Boston Common first.

Most of what you'll want to see in Boston is within walking distance of these hotels, and most of the rest, including train and intercity bus stations, major art museums, Harvard Square and Cambridge, are on direct subway lines from Boston Common's Park Street Station, the central crossroads for Boston's MBTA subway (Metro) system.

The Visitor's Information Center is on the Common, as is the start of the Freedom Trail.

Boston Common is a big 50-acre (20-hectare) park. These hotels are located around its edges, each with different advantages (and disadvantages).

Fifteen Beacon Hotel

This 5-star, 60-room luxury boutique hotel at 15 Beacon Street is one short block off the Common near the top of Beacon Hill and the Massachusetts State House (capitol). You're only two minutes' walk from the charming streets of Beacon Hill, the Robert Gould Shaw Memorial at the edge of Boston Common, and four minutes' walk from Park Street Station. More...

Nine Zero Hotel

Its name is its address: 90 Tremont Street, a 4-star, 190-room modern hotel next to historic Tremont Temple, right across the street from the Old Granary Burying Ground, and one block from Boston Common and Park Street Station. Government Center is a few minutes' stroll northeast along Tremont Street.

Boston Omni Parker House Hotel

A landmark 19th-century 4-star, 551-room hotel with sumptuous traditional decor (lots of shining gold and glittering glass), it's at 60 School Street, corner of Tremont, right across School Street from King's Chapel at the foot of Beacon Hill, on the Freedom Trail two blocks northeast of Boston Common. More...

Beacon Hill Hotel

This tiny 3-star, 13-room hotel is at the foot of Beacon Hill at 25 Charles Street, two minutes' walk (1-1/2 blocks) north of Boston Common, the Public Garden and Cheers restaurant and pub. It's a half- mile (800-meter), 10-minute walk across Boston Common to Park Street Station, and a slightly shorter walk through the Public Garden to the Green Line subway Arlington Street Station. More...

Ritz Carlton Boston Common Hotel

The 5-star, 192-room Ritz Carlton Boston Common, 10 Avery Street, is not actually on Boston Common, but on a narrow side street between Tremont and Washington streets, though some rooms have views of the Common. You're a short walk from the Theater District and Chinatown, Park Square and of course the Boston Common. More...
