Hotels in Riverside Near the T

1484271751_08_thumbs_upRecommended Hotel: Hotel Indigo
Why: Free Parking, Outdoor Pool

In the Riverside area of Boston, we recommend the modern Hotel Indigo. Rooms average $198 per night. Parking is free, which is a rare perk in Boston. Hotel Indigo has two restaurants: Bokx 109 American Prime and Phi Cafe. Many guests complain that the bar is noisy late at night and you can hear it from rooms close to the bar so request one far from the bar/restaurants. Rooms are small, but big enough for staying a few nights if you mostly plan to be out sightseeing. Guests enjoy the outdoor pool in the summer.

About the Riverside Neighborhood Near Boston

Who is best for this location?

Families and couples who like good food and outdoor activities.

Riverside is located in the Auburndale section of Newton, Massachusetts. From Riverside, it takes about 45 minutes to get to downtown Boston on the T. The Auburndale area is home to two country clubs and several parks. It’s a great area for mature couples and families who like to spend time outdoors.

Hemlock Gorge is a lovely place to go hiking and kids like to hear their voices echo under the stone bridge. Boating in Boston and Charles River Canoe & Kayak can both help you rent a boat for the day. In warm weather, Crystal Lake is a wonderful place to swim.


There are plenty of hearty eateries to enjoy before or after all of the outdoor activities. Knotty Pine serves breakfast daily until mid-afternoon. Judith’s Kitchen is a casual cafe where you can grab a quick sandwich and a coffee or beer. If you’d like to celebrate a special occasion, Lumiere Restaurant is the place to go and the chef offers a blind tasting menu if you trust him (you should).
