PLEASE NOTE: Boston hotels and motels are somewhat pricey. However, the city is well served by the “T.” Those who are seeking less expensive accommodations might consider searching the usual hotels sites, Kayak.com, OR https://www.airbnb.com/, and so forth, for any hotels near MBTA (the “T”) subway stops. You may be able to find something within 20-30 minutes of BU. But check soon: April 5-7 appears to be a popular weekend. Feel free to contact the conference organizers if you are trying to find another person to share the cost of a hotel room with as well.
