Hotels in Boston

Boston is a city renowned for its history, culture, and universities. Call it what you want: the Cradle of Liberty, the Athens of America, or simply the City on the Hill: whatever name you choose, it’s still one of the top city break destinations in America. Whether you’re cheering on the Red Sox at Fenway Park, or paying your respects at the JFK Museum, there’s plenty to do during a visit to Boston.

Boston is at its best during spring, summer, and autumn. The weather is pleasant; perfect for discovering everything this compact city has to offer. It’s also ideal for enjoying al fresco lunches in the pretty parks and gardens. Hotel prices do dip during the winter months, but there’s a reason for that. New England winters can be extremely harsh, making it a less popular month with visitors.

Culture vultures will adore a trip to Boston. Historical attractions abound, but there are plenty of arty things to do too. A visit to The Museum of Fine Arts is a must. The building hosts one of the world’s largest art collections, with a huge range of impressionist paintings. It’s worth getting tickets to see the world renowned Boston Symphony Orchestra, too.

Boston has a packed cultural calendar, and whatever time of year you visit there’s sure to be something going on. Some of the events are world famous, and hotels are in high demand while they’re going on. If you’re not planning on getting involved, it might be worth rescheduling your trip to save a bit of money. Otherwise it’s worth spending the extra cash to enjoy the spectacle.

During the summer the city goes crazy for Independence Day, hosting a week’s worth of celebrations which include an elaborate fireworks display and the award winning Harborfest which celebrates the city’s leading role in the American Revolution. Boston also has a huge Irish population, so St Patrick’s Day is quite a big deal: especially in South Boston. There’s a huge parade (the second largest in America) which is broadcast live on TV. Another massive event is the Boston Marathon; one of the most prestigious races in the world.
