PROPERTY DESCRIPTION

The Red Roof Inn Boston - Framingham is located off exit 13 of the MA turnpike, about 18 miles from Boston. Located near the hotel is the largest retail gathering in New England. It starts with the Natick Mall that includes high end shopping like Nordstrom's, Niemen Marcus, Macy's, Sears, Lord and Taylor, and JC Penny. Its biggest claim is the American girl store as there are only 5 in the United States. Downtown Boston is a short drive where you can visit sporting venues like Fenway Park to watch the Boston Red Sox or watch the Boston Bruins and Boston Celtics play at the TD BankNorth Garden. The New England Patriots play in Foxborough MA which is about 45 minutes away. If you like history we are right in the middle of it all. From the famous battle sites of Lexington and Concord to the famous Faneuil Hall we are just a short drive away. Downtown Boston has it all if you are looking to see Paul Revere's house, Sam Adam's burial site, Freedom Trail or maybe just want to see a whale watch right outside the New England Aquarium. There are a large variety of restaurants in the area that can range from fast food to elegant dining. One of Framingham's secrets is Ken's steak house. It has been a staple to the community for over 60 years and continues to deliver Ken's famous salad dressing. If steak is not your desire, there is also a variety of fish restaurants like Legal sea foods, and we also have Brazilian BBQ and other choices like Aegean (Greek style), Samba (Japanese steakhouse), and Margarita's (Mexican) are all very close by. So whatever your choice is for food chances are we have it. No matter what brings you our way, we thank you for choosing Red Roof Inn, Framingham, and hope to make your stay memorable.
