Are there any hotels or motels within 10 miles of the Hynes Convention Center that are under $125 a night and aren't crack shacks? I'm going to be in town for the Magic Tournament and need a room for Friday, Saturday and Sunday, but everything that's close is really expensive. I'd be willing to go further than 10 miles outside the city if it's near an mtba station.

You could be within a five-minute walk of Hynes if you stay in the Boston Hostel, it's a very affordable option in Back Bay with lots to do nearby. The Midtown Hotel is another low cost option within walking distance. I always see large groups staying there, so it can't be that bad.

Also, try priceline.com. Someone here recently said they got a room at The Park Plaza (not a crack shack and within walking distance) for $90 per night.

The Park Plaza is not a great hotel; you can do better with some luck. But Priceline is a fantastic tool. Go to BiddingForTravel.com - The informed Priceline Travel Bidding Forum to learn how much to bid and how to work the system.

What's wrong with Park Plaza? That's where we got our room ($60/night!) and now I'm worried.

Now I'm no hotel connoisseur, but I've spent a couple nights at the Park Plaza, and thought it was very nice. It's an old hotel, so it may lack some of the modern amenities the newer luxury hotels offer. The room was also on the small side, but was as clean as can be. You won't beat the location. Right between the theater dist and the Back Bay, a block from the common. A very safe area. It's a steal at $60 a night, and I guarantee you will not be disappointed.
