We stayed in the area and really enjoyed the shopping and hanging in this area of Boston. Highly recommended.

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.

Located in front of the Fairmount Hotel, this little square is very active. During our stay in Boston this little square hosted the Mexican Day of the dead celebrated on November 1, a farmer's market every Friday, weather permitting with an amazing selection of mushrooms...More

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.

Sat adjacent to the Trinity Church and took in the atmosphere. Despite large buildings and roads around the periphery it did feel pretty peaceful amongst the greenery.

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

Honestly I would try to stay close to the city or close to a T station. Unless you have a car, Chelsea, Woburn & Peabody are hard to get to and you will waste too much time travelling. I think your best bet is to go for... More
