I have managed to get a qualifying time for the BostonMarathon next year (only just) so am hoping it is enough to get me a place for 2013. I was just wondering if anyone had some recommendations of hotels/ apartments to stay in at a reasonable (ish) price? I have looked at the sports tours packages but at nearly £3k for two of us for 4 days it is a bit more than I was hoping. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

Stayed here - 5 mins walk from T-line metro, 10 mins ride to downtown Boston. Trains begin early enough to get to buses for Hopkinton on race day.

I'm in the same boat Hayley, Can't believe how expensive the hotels are and how quickly they are selling out!

I think we stayed at the Hilton this year but I went with a travel company. Boston at marathon time isn't cheap for hotels or flights I have to say but worth every penny

I have booked hotel and flights now so seriously hope I get in! Pretty good flight and hotel deals through British Airways website.

I haven't used it myself, but all of my US friends have been talking about airbnb recently. Accomodation in private homes rather than hotels, but might be an avenue to  explore.

I stayed AirBnB this year and it was ok. In 2013 going out with two pals so we've rented an apartment via VRBO. Whole trip costing under ??900 and staying in a great part of town near the Common (and buses). Brookline last year was fine as T is quick into town.
