A July 2000 trip
to Boston by Free Spirit
Quote: Fourth of July weekend 2000: I traveled to the Boston area with my husband. Our hotel was in Burlington near Lexington and Concord. I am interested in history, literature, and art. The area was perfect for me. Weather-pleasant. People- helpful.
Hotel | "Sheraton Four Points"
The room and the hotel were clean. The weaknesses were the limited number of television channels and the cramped size of the bathroom. The location of the hotel is excellent: one block from I-95 (Exit 32A/B for Burlington), 5 minutes from Lexington and the Battle Road to Concord. If one has a military ID, the hotel is minutes from Hanscom AFB, which is right off the Battle Road between Lexington and Concord. We easily drove our car to a nearby transit station, parked, and rode the metro into Boston. The quality of assistance provided by hotel personnel varied according to time of day and from person to person and overall was average. There is an adequate exercise room and an indoor pool. Do some research about prices of rooms. Location and seemingly clean, safe rooms are the main recommendation, especially if one is interested in exploring the area surrounding Boston and is willing to utilize the transit system.
