Depends on when you go and if you enjoy crowds, but if you can get past that, the restaurants have great food and it's an experience you won't find anywhere else! I stayed several times up the north end at the Shelborne and loved it! It's kinda quiet compared to other places. Then we would taxi down to the heart of things at night. Make sure, if your not a college student on break, stay away when they are off break is my recommendation, other wise it's awesome!
