The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where, during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting children and eager tourists through the pond. Have your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.

We had previously stayed in W Hotel San Fran and whilst the staff we met were fantastic and the Hotel was lovely, we had items stolen from our room and the response from Starwood Hotels was extremely poor. This trip used compensation points we were given and our cash to top it

Off the beaten shopping path, the W Boston is not as crowded as Copley Square during convention week. We were delighted at the spacious and well appointed rooms. We loved it being close to Back Bay Station, great restaurants and theaters. Breakfast service was super friendly and

"In order to use our site and services, you must be 18 years or older. This means you cannot create an account to travel or host unless you are at least 18 years old. It's up to each Airbnb host to determine if infants or children are allowed at the listing during the reservation.“ This is likely due to the fact that someone under 18 cannot legally enter into a contract. So if I have an Airbnb and knowingly rent it to someone under 18 and they trash the place I would have very little recourse as the contract is not valid. Technically they could allow it with an adults authorization, but they likely just don't want to deal with it.

If anyone could answer: How big is the tub? Does it fit two people?

Hello Sam T, For Mediterranean flavors, consider Barcelona and Doretta, for seafood lovers, explore B&G oyster or Ostra, for fancy steakhouses, you'll find STRIP and Grill 23. We are also so close to Chinatown, where we love Shojo, Penang and Peach Farm

"Higher the better - on the 10th floor we could just about hear the nightclub - no issue for us, but lower floors possibly."
"Upper floors completely neutralize any street noise"
"I wish I could give it higher than excellent rating. The shower was huge and could be accessed in a wheelchair."
"Corner suites give you space, and great privacy"
"Top floors - great views"
