Luck of the Irish! St. Patrick’s day is just about two months away, and if you plan to party it up that weekend in Boston, Massachusetts, you’d better get a move on. It’s on a Tuesday this year, so you could make a long weekend of it. (Can you tell I’m a planner?) Unless you’re got the luck of a Leprechaun and can snag hotels at the very last minute, plan a head and think about booking one of these now:
A beautiful hotel very close to the Boston Common. It’s been around since 1855, and the hotel recently underwent a $30 million renovation, so everything’s in tip top shape inside. The Early Bird rate is $187 online at the moment! It’s on the Freedom Trail, and you can easily get to South Boston, where the parade is held, on the T.
I’ve stayed here before, and it’s a really reasonably priced hotel located smack in the middle of everything – literally a few blocks from the Boston Public Gardens. There are several restaurants on site, the beds are super comfy and the staff is really helpful. Rooms are around $150 for St. Patrick’s Day weekend, which is a steal!
You can walk to Faneuil Hall from here, as well as to Little Italy and the Boston Common. The decor is classy and modern, and there’s a great tapas bar inside called the Flatiron Tapas Bar. It’s super easy to hop on the T from here, too.
