Boston Airport to Faneuil Hall Hilton suggestions?

Is there a simple way to get from airport to Hilton Faneuil Hall for 4 ladies?
Should we use the rapid transit or bus or taxi? Thanks so much.

The simplest and fastest is taxi. The cheapest is public transportation, a free bus (silver line) followed by a 10-minute walk. (The blue line will get you slightly closer, but requires you to take a shuttle bus to get to the subway.)

State Street won't get you to the Hilton.

You could take the water taxi from the Logan dock. It's a bit pricey ($12 a head) but no traffic and it's definitely the coolest/most scenic way to make the trip. You can grab a shuttle bus to the dock from the terminal. Have them drop you at Rowes Wharf then it's a short walk.

If not opting to take Uber or Lyft (cheaper than taxis), I would take the Blue Line shuttle ---> the Blue Line toward Bowdoin (inbound) --->Aquarium, and exit the T to walk to the Hilton. Google maps says the walk fro the T is 5 minutes.

For four people, if you can all fit into one taxi or Uber/Lyft car, I'd normally opt for that over the T. The OP didn't say what day of the week or time of day this is, though. In rush hour the T has some advantages. If it's evening rush hour, it shouldn't be mobbed going into the city.

Uber X can pick up at BOS, it's probably the cheapest option. Or the blue line but that's a bus to the T to a walk....https://www.uber.com/airports/bos/

But beware...ever since the last set of restrictions on ride-sharing services picking up at Logan, it's much harder to get an UberX.

Lyft has stopped picking up from Logan Airport entirely. Uber vehicles can still pick up from as long as they have the appropriate license. All UberBlack vehicles comply, so it's still quite easy to call one of them. Nowadays, I've found it harder to find UberX vehicles that are allowed/around to pick up at BOS. (Over 50% of the time when I check, it just says "no cars available." And often when a licensed UberX does pop up on the radar, it gets snatched up within seconds.) YMMV.
