Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

On the northern edge of the quiet Beacon Hill neighborhood, across the street from a major hospital

The hotel sits on the northern edge of Beacon Hill, a gorgeous residential neighborhood full of brick Federal-style homes. A quiet area with hidden gardens and more than 40 antique shops, Beacon Hill is a bit less tourist-focused than much of Boston, even though the nearby Acorn Street claims to be the most photographed street in America, and 84 Beacon Street, formerly known as the Bull & Finch Pub, was the inspiration for the show Cheers.

The hotel, however, is just north of the scenic part of the neighborhood, with a massive hospital across the street and major expressways nearby. Still, it's only a short walk to shopping and restaurants on Charles Street.

  • Two-minute walk from the nearest stop on the T (Boston's subway system)
  • Whole Foods, Starbucks, and a number of restaurants within easy walking distance
  • 10-minute drive to Fenway Park, home of the Red Sox
  • 10-minute drive to Harvard Square and Harvard University
  • Five-minute drive to Faneuil Hall, a historic tourist marketplace with more than 100 shops and cafes
  • Five-minute drive to Boston Common and the start of the Freedom Trail
  • 15-minute drive to Logan International Airport

The outdoor pool, comfortable beds and free Wi-Fi are highlights, but the small bathrooms, tube TVs (in standard rooms), and outdated furniture make it worth comparing rates elsewhere.
