A small city park in a great area. Near the best shopping mall, hotels, and a beautiful church on one side. Nice flowers and such.

Copley Square offers high-end shopping combined with boutique shops. While the stores are filled with friendly staff, the restaurants are not filled with delicious meals. Be sure to eat in Boston's Little Italy before heading over to Copley Square.

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 –

Chelsea, Woburn & Peabody will be the best option for you & should all be at around $170 a night. They are all a little outside of the city, maybe 20-25 minute train ride into the city.
