Area Accommodations

We know that driving into downtown Boston for medical care can be intimidating, especially if you and your friends or family have to stay overnight. That's why we've provided the below accommodations guide for patients and families who need to find lodging nearby. Download a PDF version >

Valuable Tips

Always ask for the "TUFTS MEDICAL CENTER RATE" when making hotel reservations for patients and/or their family members. This will ensure that the patient or family member receives the lowest rate possible. To guarantee this rate and to receive immediate confirmation, call the local telephone number of the hotel.

Website addresses have been included in this listing to give access to more detailed information on individual hotels including directions, amenities, etc. Be careful to note any cancellation policies, restrictions or fees, which may apply. If you have problems booking through the internet, please call the hotel. 

All Boston hotels are subject to Massachusetts tax @ 14.45%. Please note the hotel rates listed in this guide are pre-tax rates.

Parking at Tufts Medical Center is less expensive than at downtown hotels and is available at the Tremont Street Garage, 274 Tremont Street, next to the Citi Performing Arts Center (Wang Center), or the Washington Street entrance, both with direct indoor access to Floating Hospital for Children, outpatient care areas and inpatient floors. The Tremont Street Garage (617-636-5580) is open 24 hours/day. Valet parking is available on Nassau Street, adjacent to the South Building at 860 Washington Street. "Valet Service" (617-636-8970) is free, open from 5:45 am6 pm, Monday to Friday, and the parking rates are the same as those for the Tremont Garage. Garage office hours are Monday to Thursday 7 am–6 pm and Friday 7 am4 pm.

*Patients should have their parking tickets validated for reduced parking rates.
