Subject: Re: Boston Accommodation
In May, if your friend doesn't mind the suburbs, there are a few... I am presently looking in AAA and:

Cambridge: Irving House - 617-547-4600 - $89 - $225 (singles) - AAA says it's basic.

Newton: Susse Chalet - 617-527-9000 $67 - $100 - singles

Boston: Midtown Hotel starts at $109 - 617-262-1000 (near Symphony Hall)

Newbury Guest House in Back Bay - starts at $120 (great location!) 617-437-6776

Everything else was over $135 -- and the HoJo's in Boston are not ideal for walking around late as far as I know. What about B&B's? Hope this helps, Susie Newton, MA
