3.5 star hotel
1.24 mi from Semitic Museum
Best Rooms: For a good view of the river, request a room facing west on floors 10 - 16.
Best Rooms: Although, you get to choose between a Victorian or Contemporary Room, the Inn has limited views unless you book a corner room towards the east side of the hotel. In that case, you'll enjoy more of a street view.
Best Rooms: Located along the highway and surrounded by other buildings, views at Hampton Inn Boston Cambridge are limited. However, rooms on floors 6 - 7 facing Monsignor O'Brien Highway offer a better city view.
Best Rooms: Rooms at the front of the hotel have the best views of Newbury St., and these rooms can be booked in a variety of categories. The higher the floor, the better the view will be.
Best Rooms: Both sides of the building offer great views of either downtown or the river; towards the west, you can see Fenway Park. Every floor has at least two rooms with panoramic views that face the city. * The Superior rooms are on floors 23 and up.
3 star hotel
Area: Prudential - St. Botolph, Boston
2.65 mi from Semitic Museum
Best Rooms: The side of the building facing Boylston St. offers decent city views. Rooms ending in *05 (i.e. 605, 705) sit at the corner of Blagden and Exeter Streets, and depending on how high of a floor you're on, you may be able to catch a glimpse of the Charles River; these will likely be the best views offered from the hotel.
