Navigating the T

Is it difficult for a family with rolling luggage to make it from Logan to the Marriott Custom House via the T? The trip appears to be quite short, but I am wondering about climbing stairs, getting through turnstiles, crossing a busy road, etc. Any input would be great. Thank you.

We've done that trip with rolling luggage (albeit carry-on sized) and had no problems. You will have to carry it up some steps to get on the free bus that takes you from the airport terminal to the Airport T station. However, there are escalators at the T station and the turnstiles at the Airport station are wide enough to accomodate luggage. You would take the train 2 stops to Aquarium where there are escalators and an elevator. While the regular turnstiles there are not wide, at each station there is an entrance/exit that is meant for disabled people but you can use it if you have luggage.

The Marriot Custom House is very close to the Aquarium T stop. You shouldn't have any problems getting there. Exit the station at the forward end, i.e., in the direction the train is going.
