1. Re: accomodation

The Downtown area is relatively compact, so that you can easily traverse it by walking or, if need be, take the "T". There are three main areas that you could look at: Downtown, the Waterfront, and Back Bay. The one thing you need to be aware of is that the South Boston area near the ocean may also be called the Waterfront, although locally it's now called the Seaport District. That is generally not considered Downtown and may be a little (or a lot) of a walk.

The Back Bay puts you in a great spot for dining, shopping and sightseeing with lots of hotel options such as the Back Bay Hilton, Sheraton Boston, Westin Copley Place, Marriot Copley Place, The Lennox, The Colonade and Boston Park Plaza just to name a few. Closer to Fanuiel Hall and the Waterfront are the Marriot Long Wharf, Boston Harbor Hotel, Boston Millinuem Hotel. Boston is an easy City to traverse by walking or public transportation (subway or the T as it is known by us locals). You really have lots of options.
