From a convenience standpoint, it’s hard to do better than the Hilton Boston Logan Airport. The hotel is attached to the airport via an enclosed walkway, so you can walk from your gate to the check-in desk. Guests can enjoy their business center, indoor pool and gym, and a 24-hour shuttle service to the subway and water taxi. For award nights, keep in mind that Hilton no longer publishes an award chart and uses a dynamic pricing model for all of their hotels. With that said, you can often redeem a free night at the Hilton Boston Logan Airport for around 60,000 points per night.

The Renaissance Boston Waterfront Hotel is just a short drive from the airport and located in one of Boston’s most popular areas, the Seaport District. The hotel offers great water views of the harbor and is within walking distance of great restaurants, the TD Garden, the Boston Convention, and Exhibition Center. With the new Marriott peak/off-peak pricing, the points needed will largely depend on the time of year that you visit with off-peak dates at 40,000, standard dates at 50,000, and peak dates costing 60,000 points per night.

The Hyatt Regency Boston Harbor offers breathtaking views of the harbor and city skyline. The hotel offers a complimentary airport shuttle for added convenience. The hotel is a short walk from some of Boston’s most famed historical sites, dining options, and public transit options like the MBTA Train and Water Taxi. Award nights at the hotel cost 15,000 points per night.

If you’re looking to top off your points to stay at any of these options, see our guides on the best ways to earn more HyattMarriott, or Hilton points.

Final Thoughts

With a passenger traffic increase of 41% between 2010 and 2017, Boston Logan International Airport has seen significant growth and is making improvements.

Although construction work has started on various projects, disruption has been minimal; however, BOS does say that passengers will experience disruption over the next 5 years as more significant enhancements are made. This will include projects such as building an airside connection between Terminals B and C, expanding Terminal E, and an additional 5,000 parking spaces.
