One of the Godfrey's greatest strengths is its location in the middle of it all. Downtown Crossing is just a short walk from the Financial District, Boston Common, Beacon Hill, and shopping on Newbury Street. The Godfrey is also just steps from several MBTA subway stops, with the Downtown Crossing stop on the Orange Line being the closest. Keep in mind that finding a parking spot in Downtown Crossing is essentially impossible, however there is a garage under Boston Common if you're wiling to pay the price.
Dotted with some of Boston's best hotspots, the Downtown area where the Godfrey is located is a short distance from Yvonne's (3 minute walk) a modern day supper club, and No. 9 Park (5 minute walk) a Barbara Lynch fine-dining classic.
Stoddard's Fine Food & Ale (1 minute away) is a popular bar just around the corner, while jm Curley (2 minutes away) is a bar/restaurant that serves up creative food and drink.
