Need some advice..

hi, everybody
I plan to take a 2-day or 3-day trip in Boston in the end of May.
never been to Boston before.
I heard people say that it is very convenient to take public transportation in Boston.
My plan is: drive to boston,find a hotel which I can park my car in there
then take public transportation
anybody know any good quality/reasonable price hotels which have parking spaces and near to subway stations??
thanks

the farther you go out from boston, the cheaper parking will be. i wish you good luck trying to find "reasonable" parking there. it sucks.

Cheap boston hotel? I can't think of any. As you head out of Boston, you certainly can find them. Lots of them around Natick/Framingham area with free parking. You can then either drive in and park at a reasonable lot ($10 lots across from South station or $8 lot near world trade center) or take the commuter rail in...

Commuter rail could be a good bet. I think it's a few bucks a day, no?

Parking in a hotel garage in Boston is ~$20-$30 night IIRC..

Maybe a good start would be to tell us about what you want to spend per night? Is this good quality for an adult or good quality for a college student (not on the sidewalk )..

Usually, yes. They fill fast with commuters on the weekdays. Weekends aren't too bad unless there's a ball game in Boston.

If I were you, I'd go out a bit further west, unless you're dead set on staying in the city. There's a nice garage at the Alewife T stop in Cambridge, and you're just a couple of stops away on the red line from Harvard.

We usually have our out of town guests stay at the Millenium Hotel at Faneuil Hall, the Omni Parker House, or Hotel at MIT - closer to $150 per night or less if you can get a deal. A little more, but located in nice location. AAs for parking downtown, you can park in the lots, but that runs about $30 per day for indoor, or $24 for outdoor. These are non-valet.

That Holiday Inn is a little ways out, and if you drove into the city, you would probably be using Storrow - not recommended for newcomers to Boston because fo the traffic and turns. OF course, I love driving it since it reminds me of driving lower Whacker Drive in Chicago
