What are your thoughts on these hotels and their location in boston: Club Quarters? Milner House? 82 Chandler Street Bed & breakfast? Adams bed & breakfast? Appleton Street-Herbst Haus B&B? Chandler Inn? location of Copley House on West Newton St? Hotel 140? and then the most expensive Boston Park Plaza Hotel?
Are these in good locations near bars and clubs and safe areas?

Milner House, Park Plaza- Boston Common Area (Arlington St, heart of touristy/historic area, close to everything)

Club Quarters- Financial District (bigger buildings, less touristy, still very close to the back bay etc...15 min walk to common)

82 Chandler, Appleton St- Copley Place (3 blocks west of the common, lots of restaurants and bars)

Adams B&B, Copley House-Prudential (couple blocks past Copley, large very nice mall, shops, restaurants, still only a few T stops back to the Common)

these are all very close as Boston is a small city, id say 30-40 min walk or 15 minute T ride from any of them to another


not reall sure where Hotel 140 is, sorry...

I will share with you my experience with the Milner Hotel. I stayed there last summer.

PRO- Great location! Really can't beat it in my book.
Reasonable rates

CONS- They started from the moment I checked in to the moment I checked out. Terrible front desk staff. We took the teeny tiny elevator up and down 6 times before the girl realized she had given us the wrong room key. And we only got attitude from her. The room was not clean when we got there. The shower was broken. Elevators were down half of our stay. No AC (it was August) running throughout the common areas of the hotel our entire stay.

Don't confuse my misfortune for the Milner with the city. I LOVE Boston. It is the best! Just not the Milner. I have had great experiences at the Courtyard Marriott near the Commons, Ritz Carlton (both Tremont and Arlington) and Doubletree in the Theatre District.

ENJOY BOSTON

I read some bad things about the Milner. Now you have confirmed it. Thanks
Still unsure where to stay. hotels are so expensive in boston. Don't want to take any public transportation just walk around at night and day and looking for a safe location at night.

I promise you I am not one to complain either. That general area worked out well for me. I did not need public transportation and felt quite safe in the evening. I'm not sure of your budget but I believe Radison and Doubletree which are near the Milner are supposed to be middle of the road rates. Actually Milner has had similar prices to these properties at times. And no comparison!

Are there any particular attractions you have in mind yet?

not me, my fiance it's always a hassel. if we don't stay close to the places we want to be at night he will not want to walk far at night. so whenever i book hotels, i book them close to the night attractions-bars, restaraunts. It's just easier that way.
