Anyone who's done Boston, or familiar with the weekend

Going next year and trying to figure out a budget for races. Didn't think to check the rates of hotels prior to this years race to get an idea. What's a hotel near Boylston St (walking distance) going to cost me a night? Not needing a high end hotel, but need to find something my wife can get to without having to worry about getting a stroller/kid on an off the T.

    Boston Marriott Copley Place.  About a block over from Boylston but you can walk thru the Copley Plaza mall to get there.

    Any idea what the rates are that weekend? Hoping I can stay in the $300/nt range, preferably lower but I'm not delusional. I was looking at the Courtyard Copley

    I think normally in the low $300's but not sure if they jack it up during the race.

    It is $499/night with a two night minimum for the Sheraton, Marriott, or Westin. More if you stay at the Lenox.

    It's expensive. It's worth it to be within walking distance of the finish.

    Friend did it this year $100 per night for a bunk in an 8 person hostel room in buttfuck nowhere - so don't hold your breath on pricing in the $300s

    Use airbnb. I stayed within 15min (by bus) from the finish line for $236/night. I booked very close to the race so I'm pretty sure you'll find something closer and cheaper if you start looking early. 
    The cheapest hotel close to the finish line was Copley House ($340 including tax) when I checked.
    BTW... we have a young one too and had no issues with the stroller on the T.

    This sounds pretty exaggerated. I work for a luxury resort, and while not in a city, our highest rates for a standard room are going to be about $800. That's just for a single weekend. If your friend paid $100 along with 7 other people to stay in a hostel bunk then they got what they deserved. While I haven't been to Boston I'm confident I can do better than that

    Just to bump this back up. Reservations just started booking and Marriott Copley is 315 a night. Not as bad as I thought it'd be

    Yup. We're booking the Westin out through Marathon Tours, which gives us cancellation through Dec. 31st. $449/night per room. Not terrible.

    Marriott sold out while I was waiting on approval from the wife. Got the Hyatt for $315 with the same cancellation policy. Hopefully 3+ minutes is enough and I won't have to worry about that
