There are practical options and adventurous options for getting from Logan Airport to the Marriott Copley Place.
Please keep in mind that there are other Marriott hotels in and near Boston including the Marriott Long Wharf, so you may need to be specific about which Marriott hotel you are going to.
First, let me recommend that you not rent a car at Logan Airport. If you haven’t driven in Boston before this isn’t a good time or way to start; leave driving in Boston to the locals. Parking at the Marriott Copley was $44/day when I checked.
If you want to do it in style, there are various executive car and limo services; your executive assistant will be able to find them with Google.
Taxis are readily available at taxi stands outside baggage claim. Look for the signs. You should anticipate a fare of $25 to $35.
The familiar blue and yellow SuperShuttle does not operate at Logan and the Marriott Copley does not operate a hotel shuttle. There are other shuttle services available curbside outside baggage claim. They claim to be less expensive than a taxi and include:
For a little more adventure and time (and a lot less money) it’s wicked easy to take the T from Logan to the Marriott Copley Place. For general information on taking the T, see here. There are two options, and both end the same way:
- From curbside outside baggage claim take the free blue and white MassPort Shuttle Bus on route 22 or 33 to the subway station (Airport stop on the Blue Line). (Route 11 does not go to the subway Station.) Take the Blue Line on the subway towards Bowdoin and at the State Street stop change to the Orange Line towards Forest Hills.
- Instead of taking the MassPort Shuttle Bus, take the MBTA Silver Line bus to South Station. At South Station get on the Red Line of the subway and go one stop towards Alewife, getting off at Downtown Crossing to change to the Orange Line towards Forest Hills.
Either way, get off the Orange Line at Back Bay (South End) Station and go out the Dartmouth Street exit. Cross Dartmouth Street, enter the Copley Place Mall and take the escalator up. Go straight through the Mall and when you get to the pedestrian bridge over Huntington Avenue, the Marriott will be on your left.
Looking for Adventure?
Consider taking a water shuttle or taxi from Logan across the Inner Harbor to downtown. Since planning and preparation are part of the adventure, I’ll skip the details and give you two links as clues instead:
