Getting transportation to and from the Boston Logan International Airport from nearly anywhere in town is relatively easy. There are a number of Boston hotels that offer airport shuttles, but most charge an additional fee. For the best deal, look for a hotel that offers complimentary shuttle service.

Hyatt Harborside

You could probably walk to the airport from this hotel but there's no need. The contemporary hotel offers guests a complimentary, 24-hour shuttle to and from Logan International. The modern, 270-room property sits on the Boston Harbor, with water and city views. Soundproof rooms are decorated in soothing neutral tans, browns and whites and have marble bathrooms; many have windows overlooking Boston and the harbor. The hotel has a fitness center with an indoor pool and sauna, and a jogging and walking trail runs along the harbor, in front of the hotel. Guests can relax on the waterfront outdoor patio or lobby lounge.

Marriott Courtyard Boston Logan

Guests at this chain hotel, located about a mile from the airport, can take advantage of the free, 24-hour shuttle to and from the airport. The hotel also offers free overnight parking and stay-and-park packages. Hotel decor is modern; the lobby features blue carpeting and red leather chairs with a mosaic tile fireplace as its focal point. Rooms have neutral tan walls and orange and coral fabrics for accents. Bathrooms feature granite counter tops. Other amenities include a free breakfast buffet and free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel.

Hilton Boston Logan

This is the only hotel that is directly connected to the airport terminal with glass, enclosed walkways. But guests can also hop on the hotel's free, 24-hour shuttle for greater ease. The AAA four-diamond hotel has floor-to-ceiling glass lobby walls and glass atrium, along with an indoor pool, sauna, steam room and whirlpool spa. Rooms are contemporary in design with wall-to-wall tan and white patterned carpeting, off-white walls and dark brown and red fabrics. A short, 0.10-mile running path is located in front of the hotel.

Embassy Suites Boston at Logan Airport

This East Boston property offers the extra room of a suite and complimentary airport shuttle service. Two-bedroom suites have separate living and dining areas, and kitchens with microwaves and refrigerators. Other wallet-pleasing amenities include complementary hot breakfast and evening manager's receptions with free snacks and beverages. The hotel also has a fitness center, on-site restaurant and lounge.
