I am going to fly into Boston the day before my cruise in Septemer. Looking for a nice hotel within walking distance to shops, pubs, restaurants, etc. Any suggestions of where to stay and what to do for an afternoon and evening.
If you want to stay right in the middle of things there is the Bostonian which is right in between Haymarket and Faneuil Hall or there's the Boston Harbor Hotel.. this one is a nice old restored hotel that overlooks the harbor. That is across the 'big dig' from Faneuil Hall. From both of these hotels you can walk to the downtown, boston common, fenway, and take the 't' to anywhere.
