Surely, whenever and wherever you travel, it’s smart to keep up with the latest deals and destination offerings — whether it’s a last minute hotel rate, or a pre-fix meal, it’s always nice to have a few budget-friendly options. When it comes to Massachusetts, the budget-conscious traveler will find that our “Deals” section and “50 under $50” offerings are a great place to start.
And in the spirit of budget-friendly travel, for those interested in traveling to or weekending in Boston this February, make note of Hotel Week Boston!
From February 16 through February 23, Hotel Week Boston will introduce steep discount packages at some of Boston’s finest hotels, with each establishment reducing its best available rate by up to 30%. The hotels will partner with several attractions around the city as well, giving travelers the chance to stay and explore Boston at a bargain.
So, whether you’re planning a winter break on the road or even a belated Valentine’s Day getaway, here’s a look at a few of the places you can save.
The Hotel Commonwealth occupies a special place, sitting at the crossroads of Back Bay and Fenway, with quick access to the downtown area just a train ride away. If the weather is agreeable, a walk on the Esplanade, which traces the Charles River, is a nice way to spend the day. There’s plenty of fine dining, as well as shopping, nearby, too. Rooms will be marked down 30% from the best available rate during hotel week and you can take a look at them here.
