I'm planning a 2 day trip to Boston.
1. What are my best SPG hotels?  (the Liberty-which seems to be the best is booked  :( )
2. Where to leave my car? From reading Dan's TR it seems that all food is a drive into the Brookline community. Am I better off leaving my car downtown and taking the light rail?
no, plenty of parking by food. I think there's a nice Westin downtown, try to hit up the basketball hall of fame on way there or back, very cool

If by adults, you mean a couple, Boston Common is a gorgeous park.
When somebody thanks you for a favor you've done, respond "my pleasure", not "no problem".

It seems that I am left with a choice between the W & Sheraton Boston. Or 1 night at  those  and one night at The Liberty- is the Liberty worth switching to mid trip?
Also, between the W & Sheraton, what's better?

Any recommendations between some of Boston's top SPG properties - the Westin Copley, the W Boston and The Liberty Hotel?

The Liberty deff. seems nicest based on tripadvisor. I just snagged 2 free nights  there for 24k, though I also have the Westin Copely and W booked.

The Liberty does look the nicest - but any insight into the best location between the three for typical Boston tourism sights?

based on g-maps The Liberty seems to be the best for that too. Seems to be walking distance to a the navy yard science museum
and all downtown attractions.

Definitely a nice location (although in the heat it may be a little far to walk, but definitely closer than the other ones
Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.

Thanks guys! Every Boston tourism site I was reading was raving about being near Copley Square. From looking around Google maps, I wasn't buying it.

For good reason, they're right.

Unfortunately, the best part of Boston no longer exists. The Harpoon people used to have a free beer "tasting" where you basically came and drank beer. A lot of beer. And it was the good expensive lines also.
But now they got too popular, so there's a tour which costs 5 dollars you have to go on, and then you don't get nearly as much beer.

Sam Adams also has a tour for 2 dollars, and you drink a couple beers, but not the cool ones.
