Despite chilly weather, Boston sparkles this time of year with holiday decorations, a dusting of snow, and trendy cocktail lounges and cafes to warm up at. Plus, plunging temps usually translate into plunging prices. We especially like the recent Renaissance Boston Waterfront promotion, which takes advantage of the city's craft-beer scene, as an example of why travelers should head to Bean Town in the coming weeks.
The savings are best in December. We found the $189 rate available December 18-21 and December 25-29. Stays during November 27-30 and December 11-14 are just $10 more, while December 4-7 weekend will cost you $229.
That said, if brews aren't you're thing, you can skip the package and save even more. Pay just $143 for pre-paid, non-refundable stays from November 25-29, or $135 from December 19-30.
