When we first looked at staying in Boston our preference was for a city centre hotel, right in the middle of things within easy walking distance of the attractions. However, during autumn or 'The fall' prices increase substantially which prompted us to look just outside Boston in an effort to find something cheaper. The Hyatt Place in Medford fitted the bill well.
We flew into Logan airport from the Uk and took a free shuttle from the airport to the nearest T station (Boston has a great underground similar to London with colour coded lines). Here we bought a $15 Charlie ticket which allows 7 days travel on the underground plus local buses plus the inner city harbour ferry. We took the tube to Wellington station (About 15 mins with one change). Here, there is a bus station where we picked up a 134 bus which dropped us directly outside the Hyatt Place (about 10 mins).
The Hyatt Place is clean and comfortable and the staff are generally very friendly and helpful. There is a free courtesy bus which will take you to one of 2 T stations, either Wellington or Davis Square. The rooms are nicely decorated with a huge 42 inch wide screen TV and tea/coffee making facilities. The swimming pool whilst not large did provide a welcome break from the huge amount of walking we did round Boston seeing the sights.
The free Breakfast consisted of Bagels, muffins, toast, jam, honey, peanut butter, cereals, juices, tea and coffee (Starbucks). You could pay extra for set menu hot food such as scambled eggs and bacon if you wished. The eating area was small and did get a little congested from time to time but didn't bother us particularly.
There are 3 free internet PCs located next to the breakfasting area which are available 24 hours a day and the free apples at the front desk tasted very nice.
Overall a great value place to stay if visiting Boston with easy transport to the city.
