Hi Boston Bees, FH and I are getting married this coming Spring at the Museum of Science. We’re looking into hotel blocks for our guests and — yikes! — they are expensive!
Just wondering where other Bees booked their hotel blocks. Did anyone find something for under $300 per night? Our guests won’t have cars, so we’re looking for places within reasonable taxi distance of the museum.

Olympia: The Boston Park Plaza had a really reasonable block for my guests that was $215 a night

Olympia: Boston hotels are pretty pricey – Ive found them for about the same price. I had a really bad experience at Boston Park Plaza – stayed there 2 nights and wouldn’t recommend it (unless you get a really nice suite). Try Hotel Buckminister, it’s a touch far (in Kenmore) but not too bad of a taxi ride (Storrow Drive). They recently did a reno on some of their rooms so it may be worth looking into. Suggest some alternatives like airbnb or homeaway if you really can’t find a reasonable rate.

Olympia: I booked a hotel block at Nine Zero, which is right by the Common. I booked a couple months ago, so not sure if this is still the case, but each room is less than $300. They also host a complimentary wine hour every night, and provide in-and-out valet parking for a fee. They were super responsive and even added a couple more nights at the same rate for my future in-laws.
