4. Inexpensive Boston Hotels
Even though Boston does have some of the highest hotel rates in the country, you can find cheap hotels in top central neighborhoods.
There's usually a "catch" - small rooms, dated decor, or perhaps lack of an onsite restaurant.
In other cases, the "catch" is availability - inexpensive hotels in highly desirable areas, such as near the Boston Marathon Finish Line, book up far in advance.
But if you don't require high thread-count Italian designer linens or last-minute reservations in sought-after neighborhoods, take a look. You can save lots of money with NO tradeoffs related to location or convenience.
