About half of the group was over 21 and could therefore go out. They chose to go to a rooftop party in the Empire State Hotel and judging from the pictures and the stories they had a pretty good time partying New York style. Meanwhile, all the underage peeps took the subway to 78th street and went to a comedy club! We had tickets for the 11pm show and laughed our asses off until around 1.30. Most of the comedians I recognized from Comedy Central and they ...
Within half an hour of leaving LA we see snow for the first time. By the time we arrive in Boston it is dark and snowing, it is 4.30pm. We soon work out where our shuttle leaves from and head to our hotel nearby.
After arriving at the hotel, we settle in and head down to the hotel restaurant for dinner. During the course of dinner Jay spots Mike Tyson's and Michelle Obama's doppleganger's. Whilst he agrees the Mike Tyson guy is a bit of a stretch, it takes ...

... bundles of multi-coloured leaves littering the streets. Very idyllic. Bunker hill itself is a monument to the battle that the British undertook to take the hill, which ended in victory (get in) but at the cost of hundreds of soldiers. This battle sounded like the script of Les Mis, with Paul Revere riding through the streets, chased by the British, to inform the revolutionists of its immanency. And boy, does Boston like Paul Revere. The Freedom Trail coming back into town is ...
Part of the plan for this morning, was to visit Fenway Park. In fact, it ended up being all Ang and I did. After some breakfast in Theo's Cosy Corner, and a misunderstanding with the T -waiting for a D train on the green line when only C and E trains appear for 30mins-, we found ourself standing outside Fenway Park. We walked the perimeter, snapping photographs here and there, then decided to join a tour of the park, which Ang insisted would be fine for her foot. We ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Appleton Street - Herbst Haus Boston
Very nice typical Boston house
We enjoyed our stay in Boston in this Country Inn very much. We felt like 'at home'. Breakfast was very nice (fresh fruit salad, muffins, toast, juice, marmelade....) We had nice discussions with the owner and got good recommendations for the town.
After our trip through Maine and Vermont we even returned to the HerbstHaus in Boston for our last night before departing.
My husband and I visited Boston in the fall of 2003 and had a great stay at Herbst Haus. We were doing a lot of sightseeing while we were there and the location of the inn can't be beat. It was really conveniently located near a "T" stop and a lot of cross-town buses - very important to the budget traveler or certainly anyone who doesn't want to drive in Boston.
For my first visit to Boston I was attending a continuing education course and I wanted to stay somewhere more personal and quiet compared to a larger hotel. After searching the internet I located Herbst Haus and contacted Kay Herbst. I spoke with her several times before I made my trip since I was travelling alone and I was a bit nervous. I was elated when the trip from the airport to Herbst Haus was rather easy.
Herbst Haus Bed and Breakfast
Herbst Haus has a great location. Very safe and easy access to the subway, siteseeing, shopping and downtown in general. It is in a quiet neighborhood that is safe. The owner Kaye is very friendly and accomodating. You can come and go as you please.
For a lovely location and comfortable amenities Herbst Haus is an ideal Bed and Breakfast location to stay in while in Boston.
We stayed at Herbst Haus during our visit to Boston in September 2004. We found the B&B on the internet, and the lovely welcoming site with pleasing pictures of the two bedrooms available appealed as we didn't want to stay in "just another hotel".
HERBSTHAUS, AT HOME IN BOSTON
Imagine attending a professional conference away from home and wanting some time for yourself to relax. Well, while I attended my medical conference in Boston I made the best decision in staying at Kay's B&B HerbstHaus. It was just perfectly located close to shops, restaurants and transportation. The neighborhood this B&B is located in lends itself for nice walks any time of day and night. The staff was very friendly, the rooms were cozy, clean and comfortable. The breakfast was nutritious and healthy and Kay, the innkeeper, was the most resourceful person you'll ever want to meet when visiting a new city. No doubt I would stay here again and again...
The most amazing place to stay in Boston is the Herbst Haus!!
From the moment I arrived, I knew that I would never stay in any other hotel in Boston again! Kay Herbst has created a charming, comfortable, and warm inn, where one can get to know new people and/or enjoy a nice conversation with Kay. The Herbst Haus is located in the perfect spot: the South End of Boston within walking distance of Copley Square and all of its excitement. One can also be at the public transportation within minutes, which takes one to all the sights and sounds of historical and modern Boston!! The rooms are big, but cozy...and very clean. The breakfast Kay offers is generous and delicious, and comes fresh with a smile. Herbst Haus is reasonable, convenient, and a wonderful place to spend an evening while in Boston.
Charming, friendly, affordable, convenient
We stayed at Herbst Haus for 2 nights in early November 2004 and found it quiet, extremely comfortable, and very convenient. Kay Herbst, the owner/host, made us feel so welcome and helped with recommendations and reservations for restaurants, neighborhood places to park, directions and maps--both driving and walking--to our favorite places like Symphony Hall and the Museum of Fine Arts. Breakfasts were excellent--good coffee; healthful and delicious fruits, nuts, yoghurt, plus excellent coffeecakes or rolls. We look forward to returning in the spring.
