I'm looking for hotels or nice areas outside of the city with easy access to The T?
Hi Terri! The Courtyard Boston Brookline is 20 feet away from the Green Line and an easy walk to Fenway Park. In Brookline, you'll be surrounded by great casual restaurants and cafes - great for starting the day before hitting Boston proper.

I am originally from Back Bay and totally agree with all the suggestions here, also is the Westin at Fanueil Hall. Request a room with a view and you can see all the action going on at night streetside. Walking distance to the T and amazing good food across the street, shopping and the comedy clubs. When I go back to Beantown, it's where my husband and I go for a few nights of "us" time!
I would recommend
