We're Boston Marathoners that come to Boston every year for the race. We were so turned off by the cost and availability of hotels downtown this particular year, we decided to expand our search. We were very fortunate. Trip Advisor guided us to Taylor House, and we were very pleased with our choice. Here are the pros. Dave is an incredible host. He had info and was so pleasant. Room was available at 9am when we arrived, and he invited us to breakfast. Daryl's breakfast was always delicious. Jamaica Plain couldn't be any more charming. Great...I mean great....restaurants (Vee Vee, Ten Tables, Centre Street Cafe). City Feed is great for coffee and supplies. There's a terrific bakery in town. Only a few cons. In April the weather is still a little dicey for those from warm weather climates, so the 10 minute walk to the T Station was a bit uncomfortable on a few occasions. First shower was an experience until we figured out the proper steps to avoid water all over the bathroom.
We weren't initially thrilled with being so far away from the Expo and Finish Line, but in the end it really was a minor inconvenience. We'd stay again!!
