We're planning a reunion of graduate school friends in Boston the first weekend in May. There'll be about 16-18 of us (mostly couples). Ideally, there's a place we can all stay at that can cater a reception and dinner (downtown area) or, a place that can cater a reception and dinner that's walking distance from downtown (Back Bay area) where we can get hotel rooms. We're in our late 50s or early 60s, but enjoy a good party. Any suggestions would be welcomed and appreciated.
