We touch down at Logan International, Boston just shy of midnight. At least we are here and a nice soft bed with feather down pillows is beckoning at the Courtyard Marriott Boston South (thanks Eliza).
Two more boxes to tick and we can finally lie vertical for the first time in a day and a half.

Wednesday morning Dee & I drove 100 miles east to Boston and we arrived just before lunch at Fenway Park, home of the Boston Red Sox baseball team. It was bitterly cold with the wind and made it about -15 deg C. We took a guided tour of the oldest baseball park in the US built in 1912 and over the hour we listened about the history of the park …
After coming in on the red eye, we needed to kill some time at the nearby shopping area by picking up a few things we didn't want to pack. We had just popped into Circuit City to look for batteries or something when we noticed that it had started to rain outside. Great. Well, it didn't just rain... it super-rained. We must have waited at least 20 …
Pretty much the entire purpose of the first half of this trip was to catch the Antonio Lopez Garcia show while it was in the United States. The Museum of Fine Arts in Boston had assembled an impressive amount of the artist's work from the 50's to the present day in three medium galleries. Antonio Lopez Garcia is my preferred living artist. His …

Historical Traveler Reviews Courtyard Boston-South Boston
Our check-in experience was less than desirable at the Courtyard South Boston. We reached our room and found that the roll away bed we requested with our reservation was not there. I went to the desk to request one, but was informed that they could not put a roll away bed in my room as it was a fire hazard. They claimed roll away beds were only available in suites, but it did not say this anywhere on their website. After a bit of arguing and showing them my reservation confirmation, they offered me a second room at no charge. I also requested that our room be moved from the first floor and this request was honored quickly and without a problem.
Great Value for the money
We spent 2 nights in Boston at the Courtyard and found that the hotel was well above average especially given the room rate. The room was fantastic, very well appointed, large and clean. The beds were very comfortable too! The staff made our stay enjoyable and were well acquainted with places to see, restaurants, shopping etc. The hotel is out of the CBD but is an easy taxi ride into downtown on the I93 (expect a $10 - $15 fare). Also close to the subway if you want to catch a train but not sure how safe that would be at night.
I've stayed at this Courtyard by Marriot South Boston a couple times now, and I really like it. The hotel is actually easy to get to, once you know the tricks of the one-way streets, and free parking & internet will save you a bunch too. It's a couple blocks' walk from the Andrews Square T subway station, so while it's not walking distance to downtown Boston, it is only a few minutes' ride on the T. The hotel isn't more than a year or two old.
This hotel is certainly above expectation
This Courtyard is not in downtown Boston nor by the airport, but is not far from either.
For a nightly stay of $169 plus taxes the hotel offered a very clean and cmfortable stay. There is no gym or restaurant, but the hotel does provide free Internet access and parking.
As well, the rooms are either new or recently renovated and are quite clean. Additionally, the staff is friendly and accomodating.
stayed 3 nights end of August 2006, hotel out of town but no great inconvenence only short taxi ride away or use nearby T. rooms large enough for two adults and 2 children, well equiped and spotless, pool wonderful for children. Breakfast pricey but diner only short walk. Large shopping mall almost completed next door. Staff very friendly and helpful, had a really relaxing and enjoyable stay can truly reccommend this place.
Nice hotel, not the most convenient location
Stayed at Courtyard South Boston for 3 nights in July. We had two rooms which were connecting. The rooms were nice and good size, I assume recently remodeled, with very comfortable beds. The staff was friendly and helpful.
The shuttle bus picked us up from the airport and also took us back there. Otherwise we used the subway to get to downtown which is only few stops away. The subway station is a little walk away thru not so nice neighborhood. I would not like to walk thru the area by myself at night.
We used Marriott Point Saver points for our stay so the price was right for us. I would stay there again even though the location was not the most convenient.
Great hotel but you may leave hungry.
The hotel is very nice and the staff is excellent. Shuttle from the airport was great.
There is a shopping center next door with a Target, a grocery store, and a Home Depot, but there are very few options for food. I walked about 1/2 mile in several directions and only found one small local restaurant and two fast food chains. There is a Denny's style restaurant in the Holiday Inn next door but it looked pretty run down.
The subway station is not too far from the hotel physically but it is a difficult walk with traffic and no direct path. I believe that the hotel shuttle will take you to it if it is available.
For Boston, the rates at this hotel are pretty good. Just hard to get around to anywhere.
I am so glad the room at this courtyard was nice because the weather certainly wasn't. Since it was rainy Fri thru Monday in Boston this weekend 6/23-6/26 we were stuck in our room a little more than planned. The standard king room that we stayed in was huge for the $189 per night we payed. We had a sitting room with couch, tv, desk and small kitchenette(microwave and frig!) plus a very big bedroom with another tv and a nice sized bathroom. The staff was extremely nice and the small bar in the lobby was a plus too. There is a breakfast every morning in the lobby that we never made it to as well as a snack stand with soda, icecream, cookies etc. that is open 24 hours. The rooms were cleaned daily and the hotel was very clean in general.
We spent Friday & Saturday nights here 03/31 - 04/01. The room we were in was great. It was very large with one King bed and a sofa. There was a desk an armoire and a refrigerator with a small bar above it. The bathroom was very large for a hotel room and had the curved shower curtain rod which was nice. The bed was the most comfortable hotel bed I have ever slept in. The only bad part of the room was that there was absolutely no water pressure in the shower. I was looking forward to using the nice looking massaging shower head but when The water came on I was very dissappointed, I could have dumped a cup of water over myself and got more pressure.
My wife and I spent a Sat night here and enjoyed the new-looking room and bedding - one of the most luxurious and comfortable beds we've ever slept in. The indoor pool is small but no one else was swimming in the morning when I went in Sun morning. Breakfast buffet was great with eggs cooked to order and Belgian waffles, etc. Staff is friendly and helpful.
