Today we are up early and we go to the second best breakfast spot in the city "My Diner", which is typical diner food but the sandwich is really good.
Then, we randomly decide to go to the Boston Museum of Fine Arts. Half of the museum is under construction until November, but it still costs $20 to get in. Poo on that.
The upside …
The drive to Bostonia is beautiful, but my little car can't handle all of the hills. I have to shift down a lot, but I guess that's how she goes in the Adirondacks.
I get to the hotel right on time. It's exactly 8:30 when I show up and Owen is not even there yet. I had this wonderful plan to have lunch with my friend Jeff, but it was a …
... The houses suddenly changed from brick to large wooden homes.
When we exited Back Bay Station in Boston one thing we noticed was where were the people. We have been so used to pushing and shoving and suddenly we had a clear path.
We once again walked our cases to our accommodation. We had couple of very twee streets to go down and what a noise 4 lots of wheels made as by now we have 2 cases each.
The next 2 nights are ...
... about this beautiful part of the world that I found on the Internet. Northampton is known as an artistic, musical, and countercultural hub. It features a large politically liberal community along with numerous alternative health and intellectual organizations. Based on U.S. Census demographics, election returns, and other criteria, the website Epodunk rates Northampton as the most politically liberal medium-size city (population 25,000–99,000) in the United States. ...
Started the day by a long walk from Cambridge, through Harvard University, along the banks of the river Charles. Didn't feel too shattered, since there's only a 5 hour difference & we'd slept surprisingly well at our lodgings. Very welcominging & homely-made our own brekky and helped ourselves. Having informed Brian that we were 'walkers' he suggested we walked into Boston. We began our first day in America full of optimism...and it didn't disappoint. ...

The hotel had nice rooms and was in a decent location for the trains. The manager had an attitude. When I asked if we. Old get a discount for the night another person working there said she could give $20 off but her manager interrupted her and said no for no reason at all.

Historical Traveler Reviews DoubleTree Club by Hilton Hotel Boston Bayside
I agree with most of the prior posts on this hotel, except that we didn't find the walls paper thin -- we had no problem with hearing others.
Convenient to transportation
We found the hotel to be clean and quiet. The proximity to the Red Line made travel around Boston quite convenient. The hotel shuttle to and from the airport was prompt.
Unpleasant surprise for a Doubletree
The hotel in the middle of nowhere. If you should happen to get there you will find no amenities. No pool, No restaurant. Only an Au-Bon-Pain take out or in. If you want to watch a 5th run feature on their movie channel it's a whopping $13.00 The subway is close by and you must change trains to get to the downtown nightlife. The rooms however were spotless.
This has to be the worst hotel to sleep in that I've ever been in. We were woken up at 1:00am by a hotel guest that had just entered the room adjacent to us. The walls are paper-thin and her conversation on her cell phone could be heard as clear as if she was in our room.
Simply the best!
We thought this was very good value: reasonably priced, clean and spacious rooms and great staff. The shuttle to and from the airport was a bonus and saved us a lot of hassle. Breakfast was available in the cafe for a small additional cost. The T metro is a short walk away and you reach Downtown Boston in no time. The main reason for recommending this hotel though is the friendly and helpful staff, who could not do enough for us.
We thought we were getting a value on this $82 a night Doubletree hotel. Now I know why--the hotel had no emminities worth mentioning. No pool, no restaurant, not even a continental breakfast at this hotel which has NO restaurants near it. Check the fine print before booking this hotel--the website is deceiving. The free shuttle that takes you to downtown only takes you to the doubletree near the theatre district.
Transportation a plus
We stayed here for two nights, one before and one after our visit to Maine. The staff went out of their way to get us from and to the Airport on time. In addition we needed to go to South Station to connect with our transportation to Maine. This was not a normal destination for them. The van driver tracked down the manager and got it okayed. On the way he pointed out the subway stop at South Station and told us it would actually be much faster to take it back to the stop near the hotel. He was right it was painless and took only about 10 minutes. We took the subway later on to downtown and that was a snap as well. Rooms were fine and with the subway we had access to great bars and restaurants.
We checked in here on May 26, 2003 The room was very clean and well maintained. No need to look for broken floor tiles in the bathroom or ripped wallpaper, you won't find it. During the evening a painting crew was redoing the hallway ceiling on our 4th floor. The ceiling looked fine before the painting. This hotel seems to take pride in its looks. Here's a biggie... free parking. Other hotels in Boston can charge over $30 per day to park and if you have two cars.... A few things didn't work. The bathtub took about 10 minutes to drain. The coffee maker in the bathroom kepts breaking the gfi electrical plug. The front desk gave us 2 certificates for free coffee at the little bistro that was in the hotel lobby. Our kid's Nintendo playing on the tv never got off the ground dispite 3 visits by a friendly worker who tried hard to fix it. The public transportation is about 3 blocks away and buying a days visitor pass for $6 on the internet was a great way to get around. Would we do it again? Absolutely ! Although not perfect, it is definately worth the $89 we spent to have a good clean room with friendly staff.
A little out of the way, but a bargain
The hotel is a little far from all the tourist sites, in an area that is fine during the day but dark and deserted at night. The subway runs frequently and late into the night, but it's about a 15-20 minute ride into downtown. Compared to what other downtown hotels charge for comparable rooms, the Doubletree Club Boston is a real bargain.
This hotel is about 3 miles from Boston city center and just next to the tube train running into Boston. The hotel was a delight to stay in, the staff were friendly and helpful and the rooms immaculate. A hotel shuttle drove us free of charge to and from the airport and into the city. Highly recommended.
