Logo   Hotels in Historic Central Boston MA




The center of historic Boston, wirh Boston Common, Beacon Hill and Faneuil Hall Marketplace, is the best place to stay if you're coming to Boston for sightseeing, family fun, to walk the Freedom Trail, for the theater, or to see the Boston Celtics or Boston Bruins.

Besides these pursuits, central Boston includes the New England Aquarium, the Financial District, the North End, North Station (and the TD Garden), South Station, and Massachusetts General Hospital.

You can easily find a hotel within easy walking distance of all these activities:

Boston Common

The very center of Boston, with Beacon Hill north of it and most of the city's historic sights around it. The Freedom Trail starts here. Park Street Station, the center of the MBTA subway system, is beneath it. More...

Beacon Hill

Crowned by the Massachusetts State House (capitol), Beacon Hill's quaint 18th- and 19th-century houses and streets are a must-see for any visitor. Right next to Boston Common, it's a good central location. More...

Faneuil Hall Marketplace

Boston's restored marketplace centered on historic Faneuil Hall, the "Cradle of Liberty," is a mecca for shopping, dining, and street performers. Friday and Saturday an open-air produce market fills nearby streets, and the North End, with all its Italian restaurants and cafés, is just across the Rose Kennedy Greenway. More...

Theater District

Boston's lively theater scene is concentrated in a few streets south of Boston Common near Chinatown and Tufts Medical Center. Hotels here are just steps from almost any theater. More...

Financial District

If you're coming to Boston for banking business, stay where the banks are: around Post Office Square not far from the waterfront and the Aquarium. More...

North Station/TD Garden

TD Garden, home of the Boston Celtics basketball and Boston Bruins hockey teams, and a major venue for mega-concerts and meetings, is built above North Station, terminus for MBTA Commuter Rail trains to towns north and west of Boston (Salem, Rockport, Concord), and Amtrak's Downeaster to Portland, Maine. More...


The waterfront just across the Rose Kennedy Greenway from Faneuil Hall Marketplace has the New England Aquarium and docks for Boston harbor cruises, as well as a direct subway connection to Logan Airport. More...

South Station

South Station Transportation Center is Boston's terminus for intercity trains and buses. It's on the edge of Chinatown, just across Fort Point Channel from the Seaport District, the Children's Museum, and the Boston Tea Party Ship & Museum. More...

Massachusetts General Hospital

Boston's West End is packed with the medical buildings of "Mass General" and other great hospitals. More...

Back Bay Hotels

West of the historic center, the 19th-century Back Bay district has dozens of fine hotels near Copley Square, Hynes Convention Center, , Newbury Street, Fenway Park and hundreds of shops. More...

Seaport District Hotels

Southeast of the historic center, across Fort Point Channel, the Seaport District holds the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center, World Trade Center, Institute of Contemporary Art, and Black Falcon Cruise Terminal. More...

Cambridge Hotels

Across the Charles River, the city of Cambridge has lots of hotels near Harvard Square, Kendall Square, and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. More...
