Transportation Information



The Hyatt Regency is located in the heart of Boston’s Theater District. The hotel does not provide an airport shuttle. A taxi from the airport will cost around $25 each way. The hotel is also within easy walking distance of the T. The closest stop is the Downtown Crossing station on the Red Line/Orange Line, but the Green Line’s Boylston Street Station is nearby as well.

From Logan Airport, you have two choices. You can take the Silver Line bus to South Station and transfer to the Red Line (towards Alewife), or you can take the Blue Line subway to State Street and transfer to the Orange Line (towards Forest Hills). Either way, get off at Downtown Crossing and walk south on Washington St. to Avenue de Lafayette. Turn left on de Lafayette. The Hyatt will be on the left at the end of the first block.

From South Station (trains and buses), take the Red Line (towards Alewife) to Downtown Crossing and follow the walking directions above.

Bus transportation will be provided for the Saturday evening closing reception at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum.


Parking is available in the Theater District but can be expensive. The Hyatt provides parking for guests and conference participants at the rate of $38/day ($55/day for valet parking). See the hotel website for additional information: There are other parking structures nearby (see Street parking is not recommended, as it is hard to come by, metered for two hours only (from 8 AM – 6 PM), and heavily patrolled.
