    5/5 for Mr Franklin! can't detract a star for "progress" in the area but somewhat sad that the old city hall and his land his statue sits on are now part of a chain steakhouse propertya

    It's a good statue to celebrate one of our Founding Fathers. Each side has a unique image celebrating the life of Franklin. It's a little bit hidden and a steakhouse now sits just outside of it.

Where to stay in Boston

To stay close to where most of Boston's tourist action is, book a room at one of the many hotels located downtown, near the center of the city and state governments, businesses, and shopping. For a more affordable option, consider a budget-friendly boutique hotel or small bed and breakfast in one of the city's diverse residential neighborhoods. If you plan to stay longer and need a real home away from home, explore Boston's short-term rental options, which include private villas, waterfront lofts, and luxury apartments scattered across the city's historical districts.
