To and from Logan Airport
The airport's quite close, maybe a mile away, on the other side of the harbor, accessible by tunnel. It's quite easy to get to the hotel from the airport. The options are: taxi $25-32; shuttle $17; subway $4. There are several shuttle services. The hotel recommends the 'Go Boston' shuttle. It stops at baggage claim and goes to several Boston hotels. It runs from 6:30 am to 5 pm. (on the return trip, if you're leaving after 5, the bell staff can find you a shuttle to the airport by another carrier). To take the subway, you catch a free shuttle at the airport that takes you to the airport subway stop, you take the Blue Line to Government Center, change to the Green Line and go to Arlington Street.
Most convenient and most expensive: valet parking with the hotel itself, $46 per day
Close and less expensive: the Motor Mart Garage, across the street. Various rates and plans. $10 for up to three hours, $31 for 12-24 hours.
A little farther away, but cheaper: the Boston Common Garage. Weekend rates as low as $12 overnight, $24 Saturday to Monday
