The GreenHouse Apartments
Since we have stayed long we prefered renting a fully furnished apartment close to Copley and Prudential Malls.
We definitely suggest the place if you plan to stay longer than one month in Boston.

One of the best-kept secrets in the city. The Copley Inn is a pretty little townhouse tucked away on a quiet side street, about a 30-second walk from the Prudential Center. Its décor is comfortable and tasteful. Each of its 21 rooms is scrupulously clean and equipped with a fully stocked kitchenette. Smokers be warned, however: the owner insists on a smoke-free environment. There's no parking either (but no one needs a car in Boston).
The Holiday Inn, Worcester (I think??)
I stayed for 3 nights in the Holiday Inn in Worcester (not sure on the town?). This was a nice hotel on the outskirts of the town but close to a shopping complex and some restuarants. The hotel had an indoor swimming pool, fitness room, bar and restaurant. The rooms were located around the swimming pool and were either on ground level or on the first floor with a balcony. The rooms were comfortable and big (alot bigger than European hotel rooms) with 2 double beds, television, telephone, ensuite bathroom and tea/coffee making facilities. The restaurant in the hotel was quite expensive so we opted to eat at the nearby Denny's for breakfast and dinner. The hotel was quite noisy during our stay as a children's birthday party was held in the swimming pool and the following day there was a teenage beauty pageant.
There are lots of B&B's in Boston - one on Edgerly Road in the Fenway area is cheap. Also the hostel on Hemenway is nearby Fenway Park and all the music schools.
There are two great pools in the city - one at the Sheraton on Dalton Street in the Back Bay and the other is at Boston Harbor Hotel by the waterfront.
We always stay with my aunt in Framingham, sorry I don't think she is renting rooms... But I would recommend going to www.priceline.com and bidding on hotel rooms--you can get great hotels right in the prime areas for nearly half price!
On my first visit to Boston I stayed with my buddy Biju and his wife Rekha. They live about 20 minutes southeast of Boston in Quincy (pronounce "Quinzee"), Massachusetts. Here's Biju drinking a Samuel Adams lite and surfin' the web!
Carolyn's B&B is a cute Victorian home located in a wealthy residential neighbourhood in Cambridge, bordering Belmont. It's about a 20 minute walk from Harvard Square. It's a short subway ride into downtown Boston. It's in a relaxing, quiet neighbourhood and we enjoyed it immensely.
Carolyn is an artist so of course there was a wonderful amount of art history books, sculptures and paintings in her living room. As it was a casual B&B we could come and go as we pleased... breakfast was served between 8 and 9 (which included a bowl of fruit salad, granola, muffins, scones or bagels, orange juice, coffee or tea). Our room was cute - we had a Queen size bed, our own little fridge, a TV, a closet, dresser, our own private bathroom, 2 windows facing out into the garden, and a lovely ceiling fan that we used when the air got too hot. We hung around in that room whenever we were too tired from walking around town. It was cozy and it felt like a second home to us. I actually miss it now that I'm writing about it!
Note: I stayed here in June 2002, however I don't know if this bed & breakfasts exists any more as there seems to be no web presence except for this review - hence the lack of contact info.
