      First hand experience please?

      Boston Oct 12, 2016 at 6:17 AM

      I found very good deal for visiting Boston including flights, hotel and some sightseeing.
      Now it's advertised as Luxury Holiday and the Hotel is Boston Park Plaza in cozy room.
      That "cozy" description baffles me and I'm bit worried. So my question is: can anybody who stayed there give me idea what cozy room is?
      I am very tempted to book but need some reassurance before I do.
      Many thanks

      We are a family of four adults 54, 55, 24,20. We would like to know the best things to do on NYE, do we stay in a hotel on the waterfront or downtown? Also do we splash out on one of the hotel packages or is there enough to do around the waterfront/copley square with the first night celebration. We are there for five nights, is everything open, what itinerary would be best and can anyone recommend any mid range hotels and restaurants? Thank you

      Take me for a short walk.

      Boston Sep 13, 2016 at 10:22 AM

      I will be in Boston on Friday, December 16. I am having a colonoscopy at Tufts Medical Center (800 Washington St) and they insist that I have an escort meet me after the procedure to take me home. I am staying at the Milner Hotel (78 Charles St). If we exit through the parking structure onto Tremont Street and cut across Eliot Norton Park to Charles Street, the walk would be well short of a quarter mile. I am a solo traveler and do not know anyone in the Boston area. Is there any VTer out there willing to escort me home in the afternoon on Friday, December 16? Thank you very much.

      cheap accomodation in boston and generally usa

      Boston Aug 3, 2016 at 6:03 PM

      Hallo my friends. We are travelling to USA on November. Do you have any general advice on cheap accomodation? We will start our trip in Boston. I know for example that in Italy there are some hotel-type places that belong to monasteries or to the catholic church and we were accomodated at some of them for a low price. Anything similar or whatever in USA, or Boston specificaly? Or shall I start searching as usually? Thank you very much.

    • Whale watching tours

      Boston Jun 14, 2016 at 4:29 AM

      Hello folks,

      We plan to make a weekend trip to Boston for Whale watching (we are in NYC), with our 8 YO. I wonder, if there are any recommendations about Whale watching tour company (or any that we should avoid). Plus, what other things we can do apart from Whale watching during the weekend that will entertain a 8YO.

      Thanks in advance.

      Travel from Conneticut to Boston

      Boston Jun 1, 2016 at 12:17 PM

      Hi folks!

      Hope someone could give us some advice. We're a family of four (kids aged 13 and 16) who needs to travel from Stamford CN to Boston. when we search for train tickets, Amtrac trains ends up really expensive as the kids seems to count as adults if over 12. Are there any cheaper, but still fairly comfortable ways of travelling. Suggestions of websites, companies and good deals would be most welcome.

      We are planning to hire a car in Boston for 100 days, so one option would be to hire the car in Stamford or tthe surrounding area and return it in Boston before we fly out. To rent in one place and return it in a differentcity seems fairly expensive too, but maybe there are some good deals to be found?

      Anne :)

      How to avoid terrible experiences in Extended Stay America hotels

      Boston May 29, 2016 at 11:02 AM

      Not most, but a large group of people who were in Extended Stay America hotels, suffered terrible experiences, in this hotel chain

      Just read reports published on the internet. If what the propaganda of this hotel chain says were true, it would be the ideal Hotel for those who cannot waste their money.

      Help with location to stay in Boston

      I will attend a large international conference in Boston (at the Boston Convention and exhibition centre) which attracts thousands of participants. Hotels are at a premium near the convention centre. I was thinking of two alternatives, a hotel little further away but with good transport connection either through Public Transportation or Uber or Air BnB. I am not at all familiar with Boston geography and would greatly appreciate any help in choosing a location. Thank you

      Some days in Boston and then where???

      Boston Mar 1, 2016 at 11:13 AM

      We're a family of four from Norway (kids aged 13 and 16) who'll be spending a a week in NYC and Conneticut, then a few days in Boston in early July - after that we'd like to go somewhere nice by the sea for a week. Any suggestions as to what area would be nice to visit? We've looked at Maine a bit online, it looks really nice, but quite similar to parts of Norway - so maybe not the most exotic location for us. We're happy to travel up to five hours from Boston, either by hiring a car or getting on a train. We're flying out from Boston, so could also visit Boston towards the end of our stay - if you have suggestions for somewhere that would make that a better solution. Hoping for lots of good advice :) Kind regards from Anne and family :)
