|Subject: Re: Boston|
My wife and I visited Boston last May. I used priceline.com
(http://www.priceline.com) and ended up with a room at the Sheraton Back Bay Towers
for $80 plus taxes. In using their service one can't specify the hotel, but
instead, the general area and the general quality. I specified a 3-star and
made my bid of $80 per night and it was accepted within one hour. Since then
we've used their service twice for hotels in San Francisco and have secured
lodging in nice boutique hotels in the Union Square area for $65/night. So
far we've been very pleased with their service.
I'm looking at a map of the T(subway) in my Boston Access book and
it looks like the Green Line runs out to Boston College in Newton. I'd say
it probably makes it through Brookline as well. Perhaps our resident
Bostonian, Pat DeCuir, can confirm this.
