Boston Common Hotels
Interested in Boston Common hotels? Good choice. This is one of our favorite areas of Boston. If you tend to get overwhelmed in big cities, staying near the Common allows you to get a dose of trees and fresh air whenever you need it. It's a great place to let the kids release some energy or to picnic, read a book or just relax.
In addition, the Boston Common is the beginning of the Freedom Trail which is really a must-do if you're a first-time Boston tourist! If you haven't yet checked out our Boston Common page, it has loads more info on the Common's significant history and attractions.
Below is a list of our top tips on Boston Common hotels. These are the places we know of that we'd be happy to stay ourselves.
As you can see, the list is pretty short at the moment because we are only comfortable mentioning places that we or people we're close to have personal experience with. If you have experiences or recommendations of your own (or suggestions of where not to stay), we'd love to hear them so we can make them available to other visitors. Please let us know via our contact page. Thanks!
Omni Parker House
While the official address (and valet parking drop off) is on School Street, there's an entrance right on Tremont Street just a quick walk from the Park Street T-stop in the Boston Common.
Ritz-Carlton Boston Common
As you'd expect from any Ritz-Carlton hotel, it's on the higher end of the price scale, and you get what you pay for as a top-end Boston luxury hotel experience. It's also one of the more kid friendly Boston hotels at this level of accommodation (see kid and pet friendly Boston hotels).
Club Quarters Boston
Location is what you get in spades here... less than half a mile from Boston Common, and even less than that to many of the Freedom Trail stops - Faneuil Hall is two blocks away. Kids aren't the specialty here and pets are not allowed. Couples or solo travellers looking to spend longer in Boston may find this an affordable option.
An inside tip... when you're checking into the Club Quarters Boston ask what room upgrades are available - often for a very small fee!
