    Ive got an interview at NECO coming up this friday and was wondering which hotel you guys would recommend. Also, any shuttles/what transportation you used. Ive never been to Boston so any help is greatly appreciated! :)

    NECO sends out a list of hotels they recommend, which I thought was helpful. If you want to spend some time in Boston and have more restaurants, shops, etc. within walking distance, I wouldn't stay that close to the school. I stayed at the Park Plaza, which was across the street from a T stop. It took only about 20 minutes to get to the school on my interview day, and I got to explore the city for the rest of my time there. I suggest you make a reservation yesterday; I tried to get a hotel room two weeks in advance of my stay and most places were fully booked.

    I stayed at the Best Western, which wasn't the closest hotel out of the ones listed, but they gave a 20% discount if you mentioned that you have an interview at NECO. I took a taxi from the hotel and it took about 10-15 min (w/ morning traffic) to get to the school...overall it was pretty nice!
