Right next to the Charles/MGH stop, the John Jeffries isn't only easily accessible, it's affordable—a veritable home run in this city. The turn-of-the-20th-century building, across from Massachusetts General Hospital, was once a housing facility for nurses. Now it's a four-story inn with a Federal-style double parlor that serves afternoon tea or coffee. Rooms are full of handsome upholstered pieces; nearly all have kitchenettes. Triple-glazed windows block noise from
the busy Charles Circle, and many rooms have river views. Nearby Charles Street is home to lovely cafés, specialty stores, and antiques shops.

The Charles Street T stop is right out front making it exceptionally useful for those who don't want to deal with a car in Boston (and no one should). Rarely a problem with noise, charming location.
