Quick Tips:

Best Way To Get Around:

Boston Marriott Copley Place

Hotel | "Marriott Copley Place"

Quote:
This was a suite in the Copley Place, so single rooms are likely much less expensive. But this is a beautiful hotel, with several great restaurants and bars. The concierge lounge on the 27th floor is lovely, and offers continental breakfast and cocktail hour. The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful! The hotel is attached to 2 great shopping centers- Tiffany''s is practically in the lobby! So you can stroll right from your hotel room to Saks or Neiman Marcus without putting on a coat or braving the Boston snowstorms.

Union Oyster House

Restaurant

Quote:
A great historical place for traditional clam chowder and Boston seafood. Supposedly the oldest restaurant in America. See JFK's favorite table as well as where a king of France once boarded and gave French lessons! Lots of history and fun right in the center of town. Very family-friendly.
