Worth the trip to see the library and trinity church. Everything us all right there. Given I would highly recommend just going to see these two sites - it’s worth walking around the square.

Snazzy mall... wide variety of shopping for all budgets. The same applies for eating options. The hotel has a connecting bridge, which is easy access. Thankfully I traveled for business, so I had to limit my shopping :)

The mall is solely composed of high priced, 5th Ave. type stores, connecting hotels in the most confusing manner imaginable. The square itself is worth a brief look. Take public transit as parking is very expensive.

The first calling point here has to be the Trinity Church but the Square is surrounded by other historic buildings. A must-see location in Boston.

Not that many stores and most were to snooty for us. To my wife who is a professional shopper it was a waste of time. It’s pretty but.

Wander around this quintessential neighborhood in the
heart of Boston for high-end shops, restaurants, and
the feeling of city bustle. Its most identifiable
skyscrapers, the Prudential Center and John Hancock
Tower, are highlights of the city skyline. Visit
Newbury street to explore unique and trendy boutiques
– as well as every other kind of store imaginable –
all housed in beautiful brownstone buildings. In nice
