Where to Stay near City Hall Plaza, TD Garden, Faneuil Marketplace, & the West End
If you're looking for hotels near Government Center, City Hall Plaza, TD Garden, Massachusetts General Hospital, the Museum of Science, and Faneuil Marketplace, you'll find a number of excellent choices in Boston's interesting West End neighborhood.
In addition, most of these West End hotels near are a reasonable (ie, 10-12 minutes) walk to Boston's Museum of Science, the North End, and Beacon Hill.
Frankly, this part Boston used to be an eyesore - mainly because City Hall Plaza was both an eyesore and almost worse, a wind tunnel, and everyone loathed the 1950s Brutalist style government buildings dominating this part of the West End.
But in recent years, improvements to the Plaza (still on-going, but exciting as they unfold), a sparkling facelift to the Government Center T (subway) station, better pedestrian walkways, lots of new restaurants and hotels, and a slightly astounding new-found appreciation of Brutalist architecture have combined to make this area trendy, vibrant and popular.
The Government Center hotels featured in this article put you close to TD Garden (book as far as possible in advance when the Bruins and Celtics are playing), the Big Night Live concert hall, and other Hub on Causeway dining entertainment venues.
As a bonus, the Rose Kennedy Greenway is practically at your doorstep on the other side of Faneuil Marketplace - perfect for picnics, strolling through the gardens, and a fast game of frisbee on one of the expansive lawn areas. And just beyond the Greenway is the Harbor if you want to hope on a whale watching or sightseeing cruise.

Boston Insider Tip: Why Choose a Hotel near Government Center
Need another reason to stay near Government Center?
You're surrounded by Boston's increasingly-famous Brutalist architecture, a global trend during the '60s and '70s.
Because Boston's massive urban renewal efforts of the old West End neighborhoodresulted in lots of investments in new buildings during that period, we have more examples of this style of architecture than any other U.S. city. You can decide whether you love it or hate it!
You can get good views of the Brutalist buildings around City Hall Plaza and toward TD Garden if you walk over to the historic area around Marshall and Union Streets. (Be sure to visit the historic pubs, walk through the Holocaust Memorial, and have lunch at the Union Oyster House while you are there.)
Another interesting example of Brutalist style is the New England Aquarium, about a 5-minute walk across the Greenway.
