Boston but not Boston

Good variety for breakfast (included with your stay). Close enough to Boston and right at a metro subway station (Kendall/MIT). No car needed, just get your daily or weekly metro pass (good for the buses too) from an automated kiosk at the metro station. 7-day passes were only $15. Kids 11 and under are free with an adult. Use the Metro website to get subway/bus connections to just about anywhere from this hotel including Bunker Hill and the USS Constitution which are long hikes along the Freedom Trail. The Metro website has a mobile addition so you can keep up with schedules from your web-enabled phone. First, go into to the Visitor's center at Boston Common - Park Station on red line. Temporary location is on Tremont Street at the time of our trip, but it is still just across the street from where it was. Ask questions, get information. They are very helpful. Follow the Freedom trail all around Boston especially the old cemetaries and up to Copp's Hill. From there (Downtown Crossing station actually), we used the Metro bus to get across to Bunker Hill and USS Constitution. BEFORE YOU GO, make sure USS Constitution is at the dock that day as they do still take it out for a sail. It is still a commissioned Naval vessel. Take red line to Quincy Station and visit all that was John Adams (take the tour) - the BEST part of the trip. Walk into their crypt at the church, and you can stand right next to the granite tombs of both Adams Presidents and their wives, take pictures, etc. Please make a generous donation to that church once you take the tour and have paid your respects. Second best part was the Old North Church (take the tour), then go back out to the Colonial Printer's shop behind the church and learn how they did it "way back when". The gentleman owner of the shop is awesome and will show you how it is (and was) done. Salem is a waste of time IMO. The Salem Witch Museum is not a museum (i.e., no artifacts, just life size dioramas and a placard timeline). Don't confuse this with the Salem Witch History Museum which we did not visit - maybe it is better. The ferry ride over from Boston is pricey but at least narrated on the way over. The maritime museum and ship was the only value for us in Salem. Best places (value and quality) for luch and dinner were Irish pubs especially the one up the street from the hotel at MIT. Yes you can take your kids in to them. Once you splurge once for a "seafood" dinner ($100+ for a family of 4), the pubs still beat them out. Check menus at the entrances to the restaurants and pubs.

Irish pubs offered us the best value and quality combination from anything else. Get the Metro pass - only $15 for 7-day pass and is good on subway and buses. Get from electronic kiosk at the stations any time of day. Children 11 and under are free with an adult. You do NOT need a car in and about the Boston area. Plan using their web site.

Super Comfortable

The hotel was located near a subway station, which made transportation around Boston fairly easy. It's in an out of the way place however, so dining or having a beer at the end of the day is quite comfortable away from the hustle and bustle of the city center. Excellent room size and amenities, its great to have a big refrigerator, and all other kitchen utensils in case you are traveling on a budget. Internet connection is also excellent.

Excellent hotel

I like Residence Inn hotels in general, but this one was top notch for what you pay for the hotel. Nice clean rooms, friendly personnel, good food, and central location. I recommend it to families with children as well as business travelers.
