The 2009 International Conference on Fatigue Management in Transportation will be held at the Boston Marriott Long Wharf Hotel. The Boston Marriott Long Wharf Hotel is located on Boston Harbor at the historic Long Wharf in downtown Boston. The hotel is within walking distance of some of Boston’s most historic and popular attractions, including Faneuil Hall, Quincy Market, New England Aquarium, Italian North End, Boston Common, the bustling downtown shopping area, restaurants, theaters, coffee shops, and the MBTA that will transport you to different neighborhoods. Visit the See Boston page for links to more information about sightseeing and entertainment opportunities awaiting you in Historic Boston.
Recognized for top-notch service, the Boston Marriott Long Wharf Hotel features breathtaking views of the Boston Harbor. Guests can enjoy an indoor swimming pool, fitness center, flat screen TVs, wireless high speed internet and MP3 technology, just to name a few.
The Massachusetts Bay Transit Authority (MBTA) operates the public transportation system composed of light rail and subway. This system, known as the “T,” provides excellent direct service to almost anywhere in Metropolitan Boston. The five main lines—Blue, Green, Red, Orange, and Silver—all run into the downtown area and out to different neighborhoods. Trains generally run from 5:30 a.m. to 12:30 a.m. Fares start at $2. To locate the MBTA, just look for signs with the big black “T.” Additional information on routes, fares, and “T” daily passes can be obtained on the MBTA's Web site at www.mbta.com.
For added convenience free Massport shuttles scoot passengers between the terminals and Airport “T” station, exiting the airport about every ten minutes.
A fleet of taxis can be found outside every terminal. Depending on traffic rides to downtown last 15-20 minutes. From the airport to the Boston Marriot Long Wharf Hotel, the taxicab fare is about $25 one-way. Taxis charge a flat rate for all destinations exceeding a 12-mile downtown radius. Should you be traveling beyond 12 miles be sure to agree to an exact rate before entering the cab. The Boston Police Department posts a list of flat rates at: http://www.massport.com/logan/getti_typeo_taxis.html#ratechart.
If you opt to rent a car be advised that downtown is not conducive for driving, especially if unfamiliar with Boston's maze of narrow one-way streets.
For a shuttle bus/van, call the reputed Back Bay Coach ( +1 617 746 9909 ) which provides a shared van service to most downtown hotels.
Boston Marriott Long Wharf Hotel parking fares: $42 USD daily for on-site and valet parking.
