Hello guys! I will be traveling to Boston on October. And i would like to ask for any hotel recommendation. And also what are things to do and where to go to in the city? I will only be staying for a week because i will be going to other cities like Houston ans San francisco.

Do you have a car or using public transportation? Boston has expensive hotels. You can also use cheaper hotels in towns just outside of Boston. Boston has commuter rail service that can bring you into the city for small money compared to using an overpriced hotel. Commuter rail service goes from Boston to Providence, RI. You could choose a hotel outside the city and commute to Boston. Parking in Boston sucks if you are driving. Bus and commuter rail is pretty good in the city. Commuter rail available from Logan Airport too.

When you ask for hotel help you should include a price range.

Boston is not cheap at all!

Boston does have quite a few Filipinos living in the city or nearby. There may be an organization you can use for accommodation help.
