We’re centrally located in Boston’s historic South End, and we absolutely love our neighborhood! When you stay with us, we want you to experience the best that the South End has to offer, which is why we’ve put together a 12 hour guide to help you make the most out of your time! Sunday is easily our favorite day of the week, with a general laid back vibe in the neighborhood and the weekly SoWa Open Market taking place in the warm weather months. Since we’re ideally located you can easily take trips back to your room for a breather at any point. A lot of enjoyment comes from exploring the streets and discovering hidden gems, like beautiful brownstone entryways, community gardens, public parks, and more. Check out some of the items that we recommend if you’re here in the South End on a Sunday:
