We were fortunate to have a hotel near the Back Bay. This area is central to many essential BOston Sites including the Freedom Trail and Fenway Park. Many. many restaurants and shops here. Boston is expensive, though so be prepared!

We stayed in the Back Bay, because our main focus was going to Fenway. We highly recommend as it saved us lots of travel time to and from the games. Clean neighborhood, lots of fun, good restaurants, great hotel.
