Don't do the duck tours. It's a very unsafe operation. I'd go with the hop on hop off. Even better a Segway or walking tour. Boston is small, you really don't need a bus to see all of it.

Need assistance on where (safe) to stay? Is there a specific area name I should look around for rooms?

Either the Back Bay or near Fanuiel Hall are the best options.

Dangerous?

I got a pass for Ducktours and Museum of science package for 4 people for about $140 I think. Theres 3 locations. On at the Aquarium, Museum and Prudential.

There's really no unsafe areas where most of the hotels are.

I'm talking about the duck tour vehicles, not Boston itself.

Where did you buy the pass at? Where did you stay? Thanks

Either Downtown or the Back Bay is convenient. Boston is small, you can walk and take the subway to where you need to go.

On booking websites, any 3+ star hotel in the Back Bay, Financial District, Beacon Hill, Government Center, Downtown Crossing, Theatre District, or Aquarium/Waterfront area (not seaport, though thatís not bad either- just a little further removed) will be fine. All of those locations are central and walkable with good T access.
