Boston's Logan International AirportThe most convenient airport to attend our conference is the Boston Logan International Airport.
Travel from Boston Logan Airport to Westin Copley Place HotelThe Logan airport website outlines the many different options available to travelers:
Taxis $25-$30 one way from the airport to the Westin Copley Place (including tolls/fees)
Hotel Shuttle Buses There are a number of different companies that run hotel shuttle buses/vans (a service shared by a number of Boston hotels, including the Westin Copley Place). Fares range from $12 - $17 per person. Many companies do take reservations, but this is not necessary.
Blue Line "T" (subway) Take the free airport shuttle bus (outside each terminal) to the airport subway station ( the Blue Line of the MBTA). Take the Blue Line to Government Center, transfer to the Green Line for the Copley T-stop. Exit to Dartmouth Street, and follow Dartmouth one block over to the entrance of the Westin Hotel (the hotel lobby is one floor up). The cost of the one-way subway ride is currently $1.25.
Other Area AirportsOther New England-area airports include the T.F.Green Airport in Providence, Rhode Island and the Manchester - Boston Regional Airport in Manchester, New Hampshire. These airports are each at least 60-90 minutes away from Boston and would require renting a car or taking a bus or train into Boston (and then taking a taxi from the station to the Westin Copley Place Hotel).
