... dorm all to myself - AMAZING. Later on in the morning me and a guy from Spain that I met on the walking tour decided we wanted to go and have a free tour of MIT (a uni here in Boston, one of the best), which was actually quite enjoyable, although it still doesn't make me want to go to university! The heat was crazy on Tuesday so we decided to go back to the hostel, make some lunch (pasta of course), I needed to pack AGAIN and get ready for the baseball game. ...
Ha! and you thought we had heard the last of the beloved bagel.. but no...
Late rising once more, I managed to use the time lost in bed as a valid reason to catch the shuttle down to the T station..
Off in Boston, straight to Starbucks, Latte and danish, coming to grips with the differing taste in coffee here...
She, right are we going to the Aquarium now? are we huh?? NO.. my turn to be a kill joy...
You can see fish ...
... heading back to the right spot.
We finally ended up at the Boston Common and WOW. So many people, food carts everywhere and SQUIRRELS!!! They are so tiny, I was a little stunned. Deciding to walk down to Faneuil Hall, I think I bit off more than I could chew. The two cemeteries along the way were so old, then we picked up a cheap phone to keep in contact with people before continuing onwards. Lunch at Faneuil Hall was a wake-up. ...
... away. We plan to arrive in Seattle on the 25th of May, and here we will split up so that it is just Claire and I going to California while the guys head to Alaska to do some more camping and bear-spotting. This is where Francesca joins the girl gang and the three of us will then explore San Francisco, San Diego and Los Angeles together. After about 10 days of living the California beach life and enjoying the summer vibes, Francesca will part from us again and it ...
... there called Boston Commons to people watch before heading back home for dinner and to sleep. Ate at a pizza place called Sal's. They have them quite frequently located but the pizza is cheap and very good. They had about 9 different pizzas you could choose from to order by the slice but one slice is literally 1/4 of the pizza. only $3.49.Was a nice relaxing day.
Hope everyone in Washington is enjoying their sunshine. :-)
Love you all,
Mercedes and Andrew

Historical Traveler Reviews Beacon Hill Hotel and Bistro Boston
My wife and I stayed for one night. The suite was the only room available and we took that. The room was very large, but the walls of the room had clearly seen wear, and the throw pillows on the bed were very stained. Our guess was the suite, with the roll-out couch included, attracts more families. Hopefully the other rooms were not as beat up.
I stayed in Boston with my company and got a recommendation for this hotel from a friend.
I am extremely disappointed with the management of this hotel. Though I have not stayed here, I think readers deserve to know how poorly I was treated after I booked my parents at this hotel.
We spent several days at the Beacon Hill and had a mixed experience.
Stayed here in summer of 2004 -- very hot outside but had the A/C on high in the room. Boston is one of those cities that if you're there in the summer you're not spending much time in the room anyway. I definitely appreciated how true the hotel was to the neighborhood --- "quaint elegance" --- it was right on Charles Street in the middle of everything and I felt like I was staying in a friend's home in Beacon Hill.
If Location Is Everything, This Hotel Has Everything
The convenient and scenic location led me to choose this hotel for a special visit to my old home-town. Nothing we found once we arrived was worth a second glance- not the food, not the room, not the service. If we had intended to spend any time in our hotel we would have been very disappointed.
Small and comfortable hotel with smallish but pleasant and clean rooms and bathrooms. Perhaps not appropriate for a long stay as limited closet and clothing storage. No lobby although there is a small sitting area. The reception doubles as the restaurant's desk. The Bistro restaurant offers good food but they tend to serve hot food on cold plates so clarify when you order that the plates have to be warmed in advance, else your food will arrive at best lukewarm. The location on Charles Street is wonderful. Very charming neighborhood and within easy walking distance of everything a tourist could want including the Common and Public Garden, Freedom Trail, shops (Boylston Street etc), even business district, and the subway. Very nice people! Peter, who seems to be the head receptionist, speaks a number of languages and has much to say about Boston and places to eat.
It made our trip
We found this little gem walking down Charles Street on an earlier trip to Boston. We had a superb dinner there and took a tour of the hotel. Three visits later, one for business and two with my wife, we have made this our home away from home. The rooms are clean and precious. The views are great. It is absolutely the best location in Boston. (We have been travelling to Boston ever since we lived there in the 80's.)Best of all is the staff. From the breakfast waitresses to the managers, we just love them. Last trip, they arranged for Yankees tickets in advance of our arrival - not bad at all.Thank you Beacon Hill Hotel and Bistro.
Loved the Beacon Hill Hotel & Bistro
The Beacon Hill Hotel and Bistro is a superb small hotel in a great location. Reminds me of London. The staff was fantastic -- helpful with directions and reservations. Great selection of teas. Our room was splendid. Perfect point of departure for visiting Boston for the first time. We'll be going back for a second visit in the Spring.
Great hotel, great location
The rooms here are not palatial, but they're very comfortable. The flat-screen tvs are a nice touch. Also, the hotel's restaurant is fabulous-- breakfast is terrific! And you can't beat being on Charles Street.
