Boston is a great city for visitors, full of historic sights, famous sports teams and great shopping. Visitors to the New England area can easily enjoy the sights of Boston as well as other cities along the eastern coast – like Washington D.C., New York City and Philadelphia – for a real tour of the more important historical cities in the East. You should plan to spend at least one night in Boston, however, to get a real feel for the city – so you will need to look into cheap hotels in Boston before you go.
Unfortunately, most of the accommodation options in central Boston – where the main tourist attractions are – are decidedly not on the cheap side of things. The good news is that this is a big city, and one with a good public transportation system, so even if you have to look at areas which are not right in the downtown area you can still book your cheap hotels in Boston and get around easily.
The city of Boston is divided into many different neighborhoods, and even some of the suburbs consider themselves to be part of Boston. When looking for cheap hotels in Boston, the following neighborhoods are the ones that make up what is truly within the city limits of Boston – Back Bay, Bay Village, Beacon Hill, Chinatown, Downtown, the Fenway, the Financial District, Government Center, the North End, and the South End. Generally speaking, the closer you get to central Boston, the more expensive lodging will get.
A few of the cheap hotels in Boston which are worth checking out are the John Jeffries House (B&B style inn with 46 rooms in historic Beacon Hill), Best Western Terrace Inn (74 rooms in the residential Brighton neighborhood with free breakfast), Courtyard by Marriott at Copley Square (81 rooms in historic Back Bay near Beacon Hill), Boston Marriott Burlington (more than 400 rooms near Boston Logan Airport, free on-site parking), and The Midtown Hotel (159 rooms in Back Bay with WiFi and internet connections in all rooms).
