Help me pick out a great hotel in Boston

So I have never visited Boston and am looking at hotels for a visit this month, I plan to book one night on Hotels.com and one night on Priceline(Waterfront Area).

I have narrowed my search down to the following hotels via Hotels.com:

Nine Zero Hotel, a Kimpton Hotel
Revere Hotel Boston Common
Millennium Bostonian Hotel Boston
Battery Wharf Hotel, Boston Waterfront


I am leaning towards the Nine Zero with skyline view...

There's lots of great hotels in Boston, but everyone's definition is different.

Do you have a specific area you want to stay in? A price range? Services (spa, great dining, a pool, etc)? You mentioned the Waterfront area, but only the Battery Wharf hotel is near the water.

Let us know what you need and we can better answer this question.

Hey,

I actually just want to stay one out of the two nights on the waterfront and would like the other night to be located somewhere else. I don't have many needs when it comes to services, it won't be a deal breaker for me. My only stipulation is to have a nice view and be decently close to good dining and shopping.

Price Range: Up to $250


Thanks!

I am not sure how acclimated you are to cold weather, but I would be cautious of "decently close". Distances in Boston can be much farther than they seem when it is 20 degrees with 30 mile an hour wind gusts. In January I would go with the hotel that offers the best location, if all else is equal to you.
