Any advice on getting a good last minute suite in Boston (downtown)? I have suite upgrades for Hyatt (only hyatt), just wanted to see if there are any affordable/ easily accessible suites in more exciting hotels.

Thanks.

Family trip to Boston today:

Left Motzei Shabbos, stayed by relatives in Newton, 20 min out of Boston.

On Sunday, we started by heading to nearest target that carried RC and bought up :). We then headed into the Boston Harbor area. We parked in the underground garage of International Place (87 Purchase St Boston, MA 02110). Parking was flat $10 for the day on weekends (It's a gov. building so you have to show driver's license). It was a really nice day. We walked up Purchase St. up to S Market St. The kids went on the merry go round, we saw street performers (which is always nice), then went to Quincy Market. Visited Cheers, which was very cool, saw a lot of cute boutiques, and just hung around the area.

We then headed to Taam China for dinner. (No lunch specials on Sundays :(). Here's the rundown: It's a decent Chinese atmosphere. Waiters could be nicer (like Dan said). Some of us needed the bathroom afterwards. Main Course portions were smaller than usual, but their prices were appropriate. Now, the food:

Appetizers & Soup:
Egg Roll (2.75) - Smaller, nothing amazing, but great for its price
Beef Teriyaki (8.95) - sweet glaze on them, which complimented the beef sticks nicely
BBQ Spareribs (12.95) - Expensive for only 2 pieces, but amazing, came with honey glaze ??? (possibly due to asking for the food to have no msg)
Pecking Ravioli (pan fried) (7.25) - Really good, thick dough, juicy meat, sweet & spicy side sauce
Chicken Fingers (7.50) - Very oily, no taste
Egg-drop Wanton Soup (2.95) - Classic, very good
Hot & Sour (2.95) - Perfectly spicy, definitely would get again

Main Course:
Chicken with Fresh Mushroom  (12.95) - Very good, chicken decent, mushrooms very good, interesting sweet white sauce
Beef with Broccoli (14.95) - a little too much glaze/sauce but still good, beef very tasty, broccoli crunchy and tasty
Happy Meal (15.95) - Very Good, chicken, beef, veal, veggies all great
Szechuan Crispy Beef (15.95) - Amazing, very crispy, pieces are bigger than usual, and a little spicy which makes it perfect
Chicken Lo Mein (8.95) - Nothing special, simple thin noodles, with bland chicken

Desert: (for Birthday) got a slice of cake (5.95) - After tasting it, I apologized to the birthday boy for getting it for him

After dinner, we headed back to our relatives' home, and left shortly after, to go back home

No restaurants open on Pesach in Boston.
The Butcherie is the general go-to for kosher food. They'll be open C'H.
Fenway park, especially if you can see a game, but I also hear the tour is fun even without seeing actual play.
For little kids, both the Museum of Science and the Children's Museum are good for a few hours each.

Fenway if they're into baseball. Duck tour can be really nice in good weather. But really it depends on the kids. Do they like museums, even the more kid oriented ones? Will they revolt if you go on a walking tour, or other more history oriented activities?

Do the one from Cape Ann. Closer to the feeding grounds. Look for a groupon or something. Take dramamine. Bring a lot of food, bring a sweater.
