We will come up to Massachusetts, where I lived for a long time, for a summer visit. I just want to let those who know the metro area or who will be needing a place near 93 and 128: We found out that the Burlington Marriott, which was recently re-done, I believe, and which offers free parking, is offering a really good deal: If you have AAA, you can get breakfast for 2 and a double or king bed room for only $107. I checked all around metro Boston for a 4 star hotel (or a 3 star) and this full service Marriott is a steal. We are going to take it!
(I hope that this is not an advertisement. I don't mean it as such. I just think it is a steal.)
It is an easy drive off the Mass Pike going North and wonderful if you are planning a day trip to Charlestown or Salem, but also great, in my opinion, for visits anywhere to Boston. An easy drive.
It's very close to Lexington and Concord, for those who need to know, and an easy drive up from Boston in about 20 to 25 minutes each way, and one can park at Wellington in Medford (it will be $6 for all day parking there) and take the Orange Line into Boston.
I am an old hand at traveling in the metro Boston area and this rate, if you count a full breakfast (eggs, fruit, oatmeal, etc.) in, this is as much as $100 a night savings over Boston hotels.Edited: 25 June 2012, 16:32
