Boutique Hotels Boston

Cambridge, MA by Globetrotting Girl @

If you will be heading to Boston but don’t necessarily want to stay in the heart of the city, there are many options available that are a short distance or drive away. Staying outside the city can often offer a long list of dining, shopping, or attractions that you might miss if you stayed right in the heart of the city. Staying outside the city also offers great accommodations at a lower cost.

Easy Access to Boston

The Crowne Plaza Boston is far enough outside the city to provide a tranquil stay but close enough at just 5 miles away to let you head into the city and be part of all the hustle and bustle the city. It’s an ideal location to visit many historic sites around Boston including Fenway Park, Harvard Square, Boston Common, Chinatown, and Quincy Market, and to enjoy dining all throughout the area. All rooms are spacious and offer comfortable bedding. Guests will not need to rent a car since the hotel is located directly on the MBTA bus line and connects easily to Boston’s public transportation.

Modern Amenities in a Victorian Bed & Breakfast

An 1860s historic Victorian bed and breakfast, the Harding House is full of modern amenities. You can start each day with a hearty breakfast, which is included with your stay. You will be a convenient 16-minute walk to Harvard and a 5-minute walk to the “T” that will take you right into the heart of Boston. The Harding House is also within walking distance of many shops and dining options. The rates, starting at $235 per night, vary depending on the season and room size.

A Harvard Home Away From Home

The Irving House at Harvard Bed and Breakfast is a great choice that offers easy and convenient access to public transportation, restaurants, and shops, as well as the culture and museums offered by Cambridge and the Boston area. Daily breakfast is included in your room rate and offers a wide array of some breakfast favorites. The Irving House was converted from an 1890s family home to a guesthouse in the 1920s and offers several room types to meet the needs of individuals, couples, or families. Many of the rooms offer private baths. This is a charming location with many modern amenities and a reasonable price.

Classic Cape Cod Luxury

An early start as a semi-private hunting lodge for the wealthy, the Chatham Bars Inn boasted in 1914 of having electric lights, steam heat, and private bathrooms. Under the current owner, only the third owner in the last century, the inn has undergone a $100 million renovation that included newly renovated guest rooms, public rooms, and restaurant. The cottages, completely reconstructed, offer every modern convenience and amenity while still keeping their old world charm. The grounds of the inn offer visitors a wide range of activities. During the summer months, a children’s program operated by certified counselors allows parents to get away for some quiet adult time.
