Newton, Massachusetts is near several colleges, including Boston College. Crowds multiply and rates go up during graduation season and back-to-school season as parents flock to the campuses. Similarly, Boston College holds Parents' Weekend usually in late September. Any of these family events will cause crowds and difficulty booking a hotel room.
Stay Near Public Transportation
Just because you're not staying directly in Boston doesn't mean you'll need a car. Two Newton hotels offer convenient access to public transportation. Stay at the Hotel Indigo Boston - Newton Riverside, which offers a free shuttle to the subway, or give the Crowne Plaza Boston - Newton a try. It sits directly on the MBTA bus line.
Save on Boston Visits by Staying in Newton
If you want to spend your money sightseeing and eating great meals in Boston instead of on your hotel room, stay in Newton rather than directly in Boston. You'll be conveniently close to the city without paying the premium of a downtown hotel.
