Boston lodging

Thanks to a poster here I found a nice inn in Brookline for $75 shared bath or $100 with private bath. It is the Longwood Inn, very nice and quiet and 2 blocks from the "T" stop green line.

Linda, I'm looking for lodging either in Boston or in Brookline... have you just made the reservation, or you're back from your trip?

I did Priceline for my last Boston hotel. Loved it. Ended up at the Hyatt Downtown for $64 a night (incl fees). There were a few remarks about the safety of the area, but I never felt unsafe and loved the location. Great for walking or riding the T.

I'm glad you had a good stay. My parents stayed at the Longwood Inn maybe 7-8yrs ago and they enjoyed it too. Brookline is a very nice neighborhood, plus just a short ride on the T to downtown/backbay.

FainaAgain, I am back as tracys2cents said. I had a great time in Boston and at the convention! Longwood Inn has air conditioners in each room so you can make it as cool as you want. I went to the "T" one morning and met Gov. Dukakis waiting for the train to go to a state's breakfast.
The people in Boston were great, friendly and very helpful. They deserve a lot of credit for a great time and the weather was even good.
I ate at Durgin Park (very good and a tradition according to my transit rider friend), The Naked Fish (Cuban style seafood and Mojito-Cuban drink recommended by the police near there as very good) and Atlantic Fish (good food but the waiter tried to add $10 to my bill until I called him on it). I had eated at Legal Seafood, NoName and Anthony's before--all very good. Not living on the ocean, I have to eat seafood.
