Oh my word, it is hard to describe the cold that we faced on our return to Boston. The weatherman said it was -12C, but with the wind chill it felt closer to -15C! It was that kind of cold where it makes your body ache like a fever, and the air is painful to breath. But we were determined to get out there and explore a city that we had been told we …
... sick yet. But they must expect me to get sick because I have three nausea meds prescribed. My first chemo infusion will be on Monday. It is 4-5 hours, once it starts. I’ll need to be there several hours before it starts too.
The first treatment challenge is whether I’ll tolerate the chemo without a rash or allergy. I saw two very bright physicians last week specifically to address my past medication adverse events. We ...
... Then the similarity to an old photo of Colditz struck me and my fears knew no bounds...
After the chowder and beer roused our flagging enthusiasm we retired to our room with armfuls of tourist brochures from the lobby.
A planning meeting was held... She wanted to see the Aquarium and I wanted to see the site of the Boston Tea Party.. etc, etc..
Compromises were made... by me I might add...
The next morning ...
... big paper hats called "*********s" and write nasty things on them then force the diner to wear them! Mine said "ADD HAIR HERE". He did me a favour as my poor head was getting a tad red.
From there we headed back to Park station at Bostpn Common. To save Sams sore leg, we took a bicycle cab - a rickshaw type of setup. I will feel eternally guilty a the work we made that poor rider do to earn his tip! SHAME, IAN, SHAME.
... watch 2 games between the Boston Red Sox and the New York Yankees. Fenway Park was built in 1912 and retains many of the original elements and is a great stadium with a real intimate feel and atmosphere. I could really feel the sense of occasion as these two great rivals faced off. The Red Sox are having a great season and are playoff bound, so the sense of ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Chandler Inn Boston
Old but Decent
It's difficult to find an affordable hotel in Boston. This one is adequate. The rooms are small. One admonition...make sure that you don't get the room closest to the antiquated and LOUD elevator.
Comfortable hotel with good location
We stayed at this hotel in May 2003 and found it clean & comfortable.
The building is old and the design/size of the rooms are influenced by this. There is a bit more character than some of these modern concrete hotels. Although the bar is principally for gay clientelle this did not appear to affect the actual hotel itself. Location was excellent for going into Boston centre or down to the Back Bay area which was very interesting. We'd certainly give this hotel consideration on a return visit to Boston.
Clean, cosy and comfortable
Stayed at the Chandler Inn in November. Rooms are small, but very clean and stylish. Staff were helpful and directed us to a yummy local resturant. Good value for money and quiet location that is still handy to everything. I would stay there again. Much more character than the chain hotels. I'm glad I ddin't take the negative reviews too seriously.
Be careful booking on line
small rooms, sheets and towels were once upon a time white! it smells... no parking secured for the guests. with a gay bar. worst experience......
Central, clean and quiet
I spent four nights at Chandler Inn recently and my feelings about the hotel are generally favorable. Contrary to what is said on the internet and in at least one tour book, the hotel does not serve a continental breakfast. Coffee and tea are available in the lobby throughout the day.The location is excellent; the staff has little to say and it is an overstatement to say that they are "friendly and helpful". I would recommend this hotel to the traveler who wants a quiet room at low/moderate cost.
Chandler - A nice place to stay but not a luxury hotel.
I stayed at the Chandler a few years ago. It was a nice, clean room, though a little small. The staff were professional. A little old-fashioned, like they make you leave your key at the front desk when you leave and the elevator's pretty old. I'd stay there again. I paid a great price for what I got .
Good basic hotel
You must understand what this hotel is! It is not a resort hotel, but it a good, clean, centrally located, friendly accommodations...at a fair price. Caters to a gay clientele, and the open minded. Attached is a nice friendly sports / neighborhood bar Fritz that welcomes everyone (Best bartender is Andrew - great sense of humor) Brunch every Saturday and Sunday--
Unfriendly, not very helpful staff. Rooms very small, not much heat, even in very cold weather.
Great Hotel-Very Friendly
Hotel is great for the price. They tailor to your needs. Very private. Very homey. Close to train, theatres, the trolley, and shopping.
I would recommend for a relaxing vacation.
very bad hotel for that price
