Thinking of staying there myself next week. How was it?
horrible. Though if you're trying to get a free stay it's a great location .

I only stayed there due to extra company we had. To really enjoy, splurge on The Liberty. At 12k a night its really a deal.

Has anyone stayed at the Crowne Plaza (Newton)? I combined the Daily Getaways deal for Priority Club points with the PointBreaks on that hotel, netting me 3 nights for $90. Plus, I did it with a Platinum account, though it probably won't get me anything extra. It seems pretty close to food and minyan, but not so much to everything else. Also, are there any attractions worth driving to, maybe allowing us to do 2 days walking/public transportation and 1 day driving around?

Go whale watching if you can. It's about 45 minutes away and there's a groupon. Remember to make sure there's room in advance!

A friend whose wife has family in Boston and goes often also put whale watching at the top of his list. But I probably should have mentioned we're going with a 20 month old and a 3 month old.

Any good ideas of what to do in Boston for a day?
Flying (with Avios) from NYC to BOS arriving at 9:25 am,
then flying to TLV at 6:30 pm.
Basically what can I do from 10:00-4:00?
