Best way to get to Down town Boston from the Airport?

Hi  my husband and I are staying at the Omni Parker House  at the end of April and want to get there from Logan Airport.  Is it best to get a cab?  How much is it likely to cost?  We are in Boston for 3 nights , any recomendations for casual dining in the area of the hotel?

The best bargain in Boston is the shuttle bus from Back Bay to Boston Logan International Airport.  It costs $7.50, runs about every 20 minutes and will take you directly to Copley Square. From there with luggage, probably grab a cab or Uber for a short ride to the Parker House, OR, from the airport, take the T for $2.75, as suggested below, to the Government Center stop on the Blue Line (you can see the Parker House from there!)  The cab ride in will probably be closer to $30, as you are charged the tunnel and airport fees.

For casual dining, walk to the Union Oyster House near Quincy Market/Quincy Market--it is quintessential Boston.  Lots of pubs near there, too.  You are staying in a great central place for walking to everything.  Have a terrific stay in our wonderful city!

The Omni Parker House is very centrally located and not far from the airport. Most of the time it is a $15 or so cab ride. You can also take the airport shuttle to the Metro station, get off at Aquarium and walk up State St to Tremont but it's a lot if you're hauling bags.  

As for meals there are many options near-by and of course the Parker House itself is famous and good. You are close to the Italian North End and Quincy Market. So many good options including Union Oyster House. Enjoy - Boston is a wonderful city.

The hotel is right in the heart of downtown, so you can easily take the T there. Silver Line to South Station then Red Line to Downtown Crossing is an easy trip. A cab would likely be cheap since you're only going 3 miles, but it could take a while depending on the time of day and traffic.

Silvertone Bar & Grill is a good casual spot on the other side of the block from the hotel. jm Curley is a couple blocks away. It's an area with a ton of businesses and weekday lunch spots that cater to that crowd, so you won't have any trouble finding something decent just by wandering around at those times.

We have done Uber and train and prefer Uber. I don’t know about your hotel area but our favorite restaurant in Boston is Myers+Chang. Boston has great food so you really can’t go wrong anywhere, except maybe the touristy places.
