Getting From Here to There
Once upon a time, the city of Boston was served by four major terminals, each built to serve its own railroad coming in and going out of the city. In 1897, the Boston Terminal Company was charged with simplifying this design by putting everything under one roof. By booking a stay at any one of the fine hotels near Boston South Station, MA, you will be only moments, in some cases footsteps, from the hallowed halls, enormous waiting areas, and constant motion of the results of that effort.
The station was build two years after the request was made at a staggering $3.6 million (for 1889). Though the station was handling around 125,000 passengers a day by World War II, it saw a slow decline in the years after due to the closing of various railroad services that ran through it. In 1978, the remaining original architecture of the historic station was sold to the MBTA, and they completed an overhaul in 1989 that opened up 13 tracks and direct access to the Red Line from the lobby. Six years later, the bus terminal opened in the station, and with the completion of the Big Dig in 2004, the Silver Line was added as well.
Today, your room or suite at the hotels near Boston South Station, MA, will gain you access to the northern terminus of Amtrak’s Northeast Corridor, the southern and western termini for the MBTA rail system, the Red Line to Downtown Boston, the Silver Line to Logan International and the Seaport District, and local bus service.
