We visited the Wyndham Boston in September 2005 and booked via the Wyndham’s own website, which not only guarantees the best rates (and this is true, as I did a LOT of checking!) but also entitles you to membership of Wyndham By Request, whereby you specify your room-type preferences, such as bedding, and also get a free welcome drink and snack upon arrival, a nice touch! We paid about $160 for a twin room, including breakfast. If you can be flexible with dates, then you can get some great deals on room rates. We arrived at about 1pm after a long flight and had to wait about an hour for our room, but by the time we had grabbed a quick bite of lunch, the room was ready. Never having stayed in a Wynd...Read More

When I visited Boston in September 2005, the most convenient way of getting there was to fly with American Airlines, which offers a nonstop service from Manchester, UK, where I live. Booking is easiest via the American Airlines online website, which offers the most competitive prices most of the time (although I would recommend shopping around on other sites, such as Airline Network, etc.). The site also allows you to pre-reserve your seats, although not all seats (i.e. emergency exit seats, etc.) are available for booking. We paid approx £300, excluding taxes, per person. When I booked there was only one class (economy) offered for this price, but the plane shown also features a premium economy ca...Read More
