Boston Insider Tip: Theatre District Hotel Locations
Boston’s Theatre District stretches along an L-shaped area Boylston and Tremont Streets, and Washington and Stuart Streets (check the hotel map below in case this doesn't make sense).
All of our recommended hotels cluster within a block or two of at least one theater - and none are much more than a 5-minute walk from all of the theaters.
And just as an FYI, the Theatre District overlaps with both Chinatown and the area along Washington Street known as Downtown Crossing - so mixed in among the theaters and hotels are lots of terrific restaurants, wine bars, coffee shops/bakeries, stores, and residences, making this one of Boston's liveliest neighborhoods.
From its neon sign and enormous electronic billboard to the food truck housing a photo booth in the lobby to the free welcome cocktail offered to guests, Marriott's new Moxy Hotel in Boston's Theatre District exudes a fun and welcoming vibe just one block away from Boston Common.
The 24-story micro-hotel next to the Wilbur Theatre and across the street from the Wang and Shubert Theaters offers 340 small guest rooms, many with spectacular views, affordable rates, a fitness room, and even foosball in Bar Moxy on the ground floor. Special guest-only bonus: The Mezz, an indoor year-round rooftop lounge with fantastic views of the Common and the Massachusetts State House.
The Doubletree Hotel sits a bit beyond the center of the Theatre District, but its affordable rates make it popular with business travelers who want a convenient Downtown Boston hotel and savvy leisure travelers looking for a bargain near the theaters.
The Doubletree is close to the Wang, Shubert, and Wilbur Theaters, and the Charles Playhouse.
