Welcome to Boston!
Below you can find a list of hotels that are currently accommodating guests while following recommended state guidelines for health and safety.
Face Covering Guidance
City of Boston, effective Saturday, March 5, 2022 residents and visitors to Boston will no longer be required by the City to wear a face covering in indoor public spaces, such as gyms, bars and restaurants, museums, and entertainment venues. Individual operators may still choose to require masking. Public transportation, health care settings, and congregant care settings are still subject to state and federal mask orders.
Commonwealth of MA, effective February 15, 2022: The Department of Public Health has issued an updated mask advisory: a fully vaccinated individual should wear a mask indoors if you have a weakened immune system, or if you are at increased risk for severe disease because of your age or an underlying medical condition, or if someone in your household has a weakened immune system, is at increased risk for severe disease or is unvaccinated. Masks are still mandatory for all individuals on public and private transportation systems (including rideshares, livery, taxi, ferries, MBTA, Commuter Rail and transportation stations), in healthcare facilities and in other settings hosting vulnerable populations, such as congregate care settings. View the list of mask requirements in certain locations.
