The Boston Marathon is one of the biggest events in Boston, drawing over 27,000 runners and 500,000 spectators every April. Each year we look forward to hosting runners and their families over marathon weekend. With close proximity to the Finish Line, the Inn is the perfect place for marathoners to stay. We’re also one of the only hotels in Boston with a full kitchen, making it easy for runners to store and prepare the meals that they’ll need before and after the race. In preparation for the upcoming 121st Annual Boston Marathon, we’re sharing a recipe from the cookbook “Run Fast, East Slow: Nourishing Recipes for Athletes,” that can easily be made in your suite at the Inn. Written by world-class marathoner and 4-time Olympian Shalane Flanagan and chef Elyse Kopecky, the ladies recommend this burrito recipe as a “hearty postrun breakfast.”

The city always feels magical during the holiday season! From viewing the twinkling lights lining the trees on Commonwealth Ave, to enjoying a seasonal show in the Theater District, there’s plenty to do in the city in the month of December and beyond. We’ve pulled together our recommendations for the best holiday activities in Boston below.

Ice Skating on the Frog Pond

One of our favorite activities in the winter is to lace up for a skate on the  Frog Pond on the Boston Common! Renting a pair of skates and spending time on the ice is a wonderful way to pass a winter afternoon. The Frog Pond has skate rentals available as well as skating aids for children who are just learning, and is open 7 days a week, typically through mid-March (depending on the weather conditions).
