Advice on where to stay in Boston

Jump to last reply

We will be in Boston in late April, early May probably 3-4 nights. We will be coming from Maine by car and plan to drop our car at Logan. We have a flight to Dublin leaving on a Saturday (May 3rd) at 9PM. So here is my question:

We would like to have a few days to visit Boston but don't want to drive into the city or stay in the city with a car. Would it be better to just schedule the car drop off at Logan a few days prior and then find a hotel in the city and arrange transport back out to Logan on that Saturday-I am hoping since it is a Saturday and our flight leaves late, traffic may not be too horrible. Or we could stay somewhere outside of Boston closer to the airport and then drop the car ourselves the evening of the flight, and commute in to sight see.

Everybody's input would be appreciated. I am kind of leaning towards just ditching the car a few days early and figuring out transport to the airport separately. If that were the case, would it be more fun to stay in someplace like Cambridge or the waterfront or some other neighborhood? I am not so much interested in seeing the historic Boston as just being in a cool neighborhood for a few days with good restaurants, coffee shops and people watching, but also in a neighborhood where it isn't impossible to get to Logan on that Saturday. If we don't have the cost of the car, we can splurge a bit on hotel or a suite or apartment with kitchen for example. So any suggestions of hotels or suites would also be welcome.

Anyway, since we are west coast people help from those folks who know Boston would be greatly appreciated. We are still far out, but I would feel better if we had a plan for that last stop before we catch our transatlantic flight :)
