Car hire (again)

I'm staying in Boston for 2 days in October and as everyone says how bad the driving/parking is wouldn't it be better to hire the car from the hotel (is that possible?), or head back to Logan(?) to hire after 2 days in town? Or even take the T to a suburb (I'm heading to the White Mountains after the 2 days)?

The airport is easy to access via the subway "Blue" line from downtown.

Alternatively, there are car rental agencies downtown, including at the Park Plaza hotel and at the Prudential Center. I'm sure there are others easily found, too.

Even if not at the hotel, most car rental agencies have office Downtown as well as the Airport. Just make sure you get prices for both, as one may be cheaper.

I did a similar thing a couple of years ago and picked up the hire car in Cambridge somewhere - the office was near a T station so it was easy to get to from our hotel and offered an easy-ish escape route, especially heading north. Obviously it will also be easier for you if you pick up 10-ish after the worst of the early morning traffic has dissolved
