... They arrived at the tip of Cape Cod (now called Provincetown) in November 1620 and spent a month exploring the surrounding area before choosing Plymouth which is named after Plymouth, England where they had set sail from. 102 people made the 66 day voyage from England and by the spring of the following year only 51 of them survived. We walked through the older part of town along the waterfront, named Water Street, where you can see the replica of the Mayflower (Mayflower II) ...
... been planning before his assassination. He had teamed up with the popular superman comic book and created an edition to promote his fitness/ healthy living program; much like Michelle Obama is doing today. The edition included a cartoon JFK calling on super mans assistance for a challenge so big he wasn't sure whether even super man could face it! The company had completed the edition in sketches which were in show and had created the first page in colour when Kennedy ...
... of individualism and self righteousness among the Americans. Again, there were many exceptions to this, but generally. I also found them a lot more over-the-top, no surprise there, but really a contrast to the Canadians I'd been around.
After the first afternoon I thought, I cannot wait to go back to Canada. Plastic money, tea readily available, $1 and $2 coins, no 1 cent coin, orderly ...
... pottery bowl that had thick sides but looked thin from various angles (mum - take note). There was also a sculpture hanging from the ceiling that was made of foam cups but from far away, you could not tell it was made of cups! There was also live music with a bell ringing group which was certainly something I had not really seen before. I was surprised by how diverse the museum is; 'fine art' definitely provides a different expectation. But as with all these grand, old museums, ...
... to the Institute of Contemporary Art. Our budget leaves little room for galleries and museums, but as entry was free in the evening we treated ourselves to a little culture. Modern art can be intriguing, it can be beautiful, or it can leave you questioning whether the label of "art" is appropriate. In the case of the exhibition we saw, it was the latter. I'm nowhere near an authority on the subject, but I think an artist should have some ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Boston Downtown / Faneuil Hall
If you are looking for a first class hotel to stay at in the downtown Boston area, this is the hotel for you. It is located in the financial district and within walking distance to everything. We didn't have to take a cab anywhere while we were there. The hotel concierge was wonderful and gave us directions to any place we needed to go. He also made wonderful recommendations for dining which was very also helpful.
We spent 3 nights at the Wyndham Boston over the July 4th weekend. The location is fantastic, we walked everywhere, over to the Northend for some great Italian food, a 15 minutes walk to China Town for some wonderful and reasonable Chinese seafood, Quincy Market is just around the corner. Even the airport is only 2 stops away on the T. You definitely do not need a car at all if you're staying at the Wyndham Boston. In fact, you don't want to have a car, since they charge $22 a night for valet parking.
Best Hotel in Boston
This is a great hotel to stay at in Boston. I have stayed there 3 times in the past year, just got back today and will be there next weekend with my family. The service at the hotel is tremendous - always - they are always very helpful - from the front desk to the housekeeping staff. Joining Wyndham by Request is a must. A short walk to Quincy Market, the Aquarium and the North End. This is my favorite hotel to stay in by far.
Wonderful experience from front desk to check out

Stay Here! Greatest Hotel In Boston!
I travel to Boston very often and I always stay at this hotel. The service, staff, and accomodations can't be beat. HIGHLY recommend joining the WYNDHAM BY REQUEST PROGRAM.. Its free and if available you get a free room upgrade.. I have always been upgraded. I love that there is a personal note and snack of MY choice waiting IN MY ROOM when i check in!! How cool is that?? The concierge is TOPS!!!! The location of this hotel is perfect!! Is it obvious I love this place?? Stay here you wont regret it!!
We stayed at the Wyndham Boston on 4th April for 3 nights. We were all totaly delighted with the spacious two room suite that we were upgraded to with 'Wyndham by Request', we also enjoyed the complimentary cookies and soda. Any extras are very expensive, so dont drink the water in the room on arrival, wait until the turn down lady arrives (about 5-6pm) she has free bottled water, chocolates, extra toiletries (soothing eye pads ... mmm). Nothing is too much trouble to the concierge - we booked the boston duck tour through them, lost our ticket and had a replacement immediately. Book through expedia for very low rates. And don't forget to sign up to Wyndham by request via their web site before you travel.
Get a 2 room Suite
Great location, great service, great room, etc... The room was spacious and Wyndham By Request really works well.
join 'wyndhambyrequest' and you will not be disappointed....they give members the 'best room available' when you check in and we had a very nice suite for $99 a night this past weekend (1/24/03 to 1/26/03). the hotel is in the middle of the financial district and within walking distance of the north end, the waterfront, quincy market, the common, beacon hill, downtown crossing, the theater district, chinatown...it was a great visit for us. the staff is very courteous and professional, particularly the housekeeping staff, and the hotel is really very nice. we had a great view of the harbor from our room and the only complaint we had (and it is really minor--borderline picky) was that the carpet in the room seemed kind of old and cheesy. we will definately stay at the wyndham again in the future.
I spent last weekend at Wyndham Boston and enjoyed my family's stay immensely. I would also like to thank previous reviewers as they provided a preview of all the positives I would find at this hotel as well as the potential pitfalls(ex. cost of water bottles in room and valet parking). The hotel's "By Request" program is a must. The hotel allowed us to check in early without added cost. We were provided a complimentary small fruit plate, bottled water and soda in room. This is available on-line at their web site. The staff was very friendly,helpful and kind to our family (2 adults and 3 children under age 8). They were always available with unprompted questions for us (Do you need directions? Do you need dinner recommendations? etc.) The room was well appointed, very attractively furnished and comfortable.
I recently stayed at the Wyndham Hotel in Boston.We reserved three rooms- two kings and one double.When the first party checked in they were put in the double as "no kings were yet available."When the rest of the party checked in the clerk tried to have us switch rooms to accomodate the beds we had requested?Considering that the people who were asked to "swap rooms" do not know eachother very well,this is unacceptable.Also,we had provided the hotel with a credit card for each party in which charges were swapped(my parking went on the other people's bill and the room they paid for went on mine?)We are still sorting out the bills.
