How to Get to Boskone
By Car The Sheraton Boston is at 39 Dalton St. in Boston's "Back Bay" area.
From the North: Take Interstate 93 South to exit 26 (Storrow Drive). Proceed on Storrow Drive until you come to the Fenway exit which will be on the left. Stay to the left (this will be Boylston Street) and go through 5 traffic lights. At the fifth light, take a right onto Dalton Street. Proceed to the hotel.
From the South: Take Interstate 93 North to exit 18 (Massachusetts Avenue). Take a right at the bottom of the off-ramp onto Massachusetts Avenue. Continue for approximately one mile, and then take a right onto Huntington Avenue. At the second light turn left onto Belvedere. The hotel is on the right.
From the West: Take Interstate 90 East (Massachusetts Pike) to exit 22 (Prudential Center/Copley Square). Stay to the left to Prudential Center. Once above ground on Huntington Avenue and at the first set of lights, take a right onto Belvedere. The hotel is on the right.
A note on parking: Since we are in a major city, parking costs are going to be very expensive close to the hotel. The garage attached to the hotel charges $28/day ($33/day for valet parking). The hotel does not own the garage, so we can't negotiate a better rate. There are alternatives. Consider parking in one of the large lots at the end of the subway or commuter rail lines, and taking the subway in. Riverside Station, on the end of the 'D' spur of the Green Line, has a large openair lot where parking costs $3.25/day. Alewife station, at one end of the Red Line, charges $4.50/day for parking for its multi-story garage lot (not suitable for tall vehicles). Alewife is a little closer to the hotel than Riverside is, but you will need to change trains at the Downtown Crossing Station for an Orange Line train going to Back Bay Station. See directions below for "by the 'T'."
By Air if you fly into Boston's Logan Airport you can take a shared ride van to the hotel, or take the 'T' (subway) Blue Line train to Government Center, and change there for a Green Line train to Prudential Center ('E' spur only). Or take Back Bay Coach for $9 per person to the Sheraton Boston. Other similar coach services are roughly the same.
Amtrak The closest Amtrak stop is the Back Bay station (Amtrak's station code BBY). The station is at 145 Dartmouth St. (the second-to-last stop, before South Station). To reach the hotel from Back Bay, you may either walk to the hotel (several long blocks) or take a cab (~$8, according to the Sheraton concierge).
If you are planning to take public transportation, the closest subway stop is Prudential Center on the Green Line. Be sure to take an E-labeled train.
For Amtrak information, see www.amtrak.com. or call 1-800-USARAIL.
Commuter Rail If coming from the south or west, take a commuter train to Back Bay Station. From the north, take a train to North Station and then see below for "by the 'T'".
By the 'T' There are two reasonably close stops: Back Bay on the Orange Line, and Prudential Center on the Green Line (the'E' spur of the Green Line). See www.mbta.com. or call 617-222-3200 or 1-800-392-6100.
