Hotels in Boston

*Our wedding is over Columbus Day weekend, so be sure book your hotels soon before they fill up!*

Since hotels in Boston can be, shall we say, "spendy," we've provided a few different tiers of hotels, inns, and B&B's. For the places outside of Boston, we've made sure that they're in cool areas (we think!), close to a train stop, and no more than 20 minutes from downtown by train.

We didn't have enough people to register for a group discount anywhere, so we suggest just talking to your buddies and making sure you're all staying at or near the same place.

Also, as a final note, if the hotel prices are making it cost-prohibitive for you to come to the wedding, please send us an e-mail. We don't want this to be an issue for you and it might be that we can work something out.

With all that said, here you go!

Tier 1 : Brookline

All these places are close to Coolidge Corner in Brookline, MA. There's a little shopping area, restaurants, a movie theater, and parks. The closest T-stop is Coolidge Corner and it's about a 20 minute ride straight downtown and to the Museum of Science.

• Beacon Inn - $99 per night and up
• The Beech Tree Inn - - About $119/night
• The Longwood Inn - $114 - $135/night 

Tier 2: Cambridge/Harvard Square/Porter Square

Harvard Square is about 15-20 minutes from downtown on the T and requires 1 change of trains to get to the Museum of Science. It's a very cute area with lots to do and see - especially if you've never been to Boston before!

• Harvard Square Hotel - $229 and up
• Friendly Inn at Harvard Square - $97 - $197
• Bed & Breakfast in Cambridge - $75 - $190 - some rooms have a 3-night minimum, it seems.
• Mary Prentiss Inn - $129 and up - This one is closer to Porter Square. It's a little further out, but still a nice area. Near where I went to culinary school, in fact!

Tier 3: Downtown Boston

These three hotels are right in Copley Square, near the Boston Public Library, the Boston Public Gardens, and lots of shopping and restaurants. It's a short ride on the T to the Museum of Science and other museums.

• Copley Square Hotel - About $250
• Colonnade Hotel - About $250
• Westin at Copley Place - About $250
