Close to Logan

It is what I have come to expect from Holiday Inn Express hotels. Nothing fancy but a clean and comfortable room along with a descent continental breakfast.

Great Stay

The stay was very nice, and it was very nice that I was able to check in 2 hours early so I was able to get to a meeting across town. Very close to the T station, a good family breakfast/lunch restaurant next door, and a nice delivery pizza shop across from the T. Would recommended to a friend, and would stay again!

Good value, comfortable, clean

We spent three nights here when visiting Boston. We wanted somewhere clean and comfortable to return to each evening, and the hotel fitted the bill. Staff were very helpful and friendly, and the breakfasts were a bonus before heading off for the day. Located a 10 minute walk from the subway station it was quite handy to head into Boston, and a cab fare home later at night was not overly expensive. We hired a car for a couple of days and it suited us not to be in the centre of the city, and relatively easy to head onto major routes. Make sure you have the driving directions for return as Boston traffic systems can get complicated

Tough go

Basicly ever turn I made there was a little issue with everything. The fact that you have to return to your car after filling out the vehicle info card and place a tag on your rear view mirror is beyond me.

Great hotel, and close to T-station

Went to the Sox/Yankees game, and toured the town. Being near the T-station made getting around easy and affordable.

Holiday Inn Expess 69 Boston Street,

Very good directions from staff; this was a great location as the T was just around the corner and over a hill. Van available for $5 each for trip to airport. Across the back parking lot was a huge strip mall with a very large Target and Applebees and Olive Garden Restaurants. Beantown Trolley makes a stop in front of this hotel and Old Town Trolley stops in front of hotel next to it. Beantown delivers you back to the hotel; Old Town does not. Good breakfast daily; Really liked this hotel. It isn't a brand new hotel, but it's a really good place to stay for the prices. Seemed to have just enough parking.We would stay here again. It seemed to be handy for us--whether we used the T or drove the rental car. We used the T for getting around in Boston & the car to drive out to Lexington/Concord and to drive up to New Hampshire--not far away. This was one of the best hotel experiences we've had. I was really surprised at how helpful and friendly the staff was. They didn't give us a parking pass at check in, but that turned out to NOT be a problem. A pool would have been nice, but we were not there to use one, anyway, and I would rather have the parking spaces than have the pool, anyway. Parking in Boston is a rarity. If you drive, make sure there is a place to park when you get there; otherwise, take the T--you get there faster, with the T, too.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

Shopping center right behind the hotel: Target, Applebees, Olive Garden, grocery store. If you forgot something, Target has everything. Room had a microwave & refrigerator. We stocked up on soft drinks and snacks for each night we got in. Had them in the fridge & microwave ready. HANDY & cheaper, too.

use the T in Boston you can buy a pass for 1 or 3 day or week pass. We bought a week pass for $15/person. Kids under 11 were free. Well marked stops and maps everywhere to get you to all attractions. The ferries over to USS Constitutions are included in the pass as well as city buses. Great value.
