Located in the historic Charlestown Navy Yard, 3 blocks from USS Constitution and Boston National Historical Park. The Navy Yard was closed as an active naval installation in 1974. Since then it has undergone major renovations. New buildings built along the waterfront are upscale condominiums. Many of the Navy building were repurposed as office and research and design space. The Massachusetts General Hospital is the largest tenant here. The Navy Yard is also the site of the Boston National Historic Park, part of the National Parks System. Charlestown Ferry and Partners' buses connect the Inn with downtown Boston and the city's subway system. (No shuttle service on weekend evenings.) If you arrive early and want to visit downtown Boston, we recommend taking the MBTA’s Charlestown Ferry. The ferry leaves from the end of Pier 3 (ask the Front Desk: it’s a 5 minute walk) and takes just 10 minutes to travel to Long Wharf in downtown. (The New England Aquarium is located right at Long Wharf, as is Legal Sea Foods restaurant, and Faneuil Hall is just across the “Greenway.”) The ferry costs $1.70 each way (.85 cents for seniors) and you can pay cash. The ferry runs every fifteen minutes during commuter hours and every half hour at other times. The last trip back to the Navy Yard is at 6 on weekend nights, and 8 on weekday nights. You can also ride the free, and open to all, Partners’ Healthcare Shuttle which makes regular trips between the Navy Yard and Massachusetts General Hospital. The Partners’ Shuttle will take you to North Station (Green Line and Orange Line) and Charles/MGH Station (Red Line). Ask at the Front Desk for details about riding the Partners’ Shuttle.
