Where to Stay

We like the Westin Copley Place, Boston for both its family-friendly attitude and great location. It's also close to several activities and the subway (Copley Station for the Green Line and Back Bay for the Orange Line).

The Boston Library is around the corner, and a walk to Boston Common takes about 10 minutes.

Check out their Westin Family ( ) packages that include free meals for children under 12, an activity book and journal, and depending on the time of year, you might find a teepee in your room.

If you need more help in planning your Boston visit, check out the Greater Boston Convention and Visitors Bureau. They can help plan your trip, and give you great advice on additional spots to spend your time, no matter what your family's interest.
