Airport/Ground Transportation

The Marriott Copley is approximately 4 miles from the Logan Airport. Affordable options for transportation are as follows:

Rental Cars - Alamo, Avis, Hertz and Budget are at or near the airport. We strongly recommend that visitors rent cars from their hotels or downtown locations only for day trips or trips to the outer suburbs.

Taxis - Cabs are available outside all baggage claim areas. All destinations within a 12 mile radius of the airport are metered. The average charge to the Marriott Copley is $15.35.

Shuttles - Shared ride vans are available and stop at most major downtown hotels. Please be aware that there may be multiple stops depending on the number of passengers. Back Bay Coach (617-746-9909) and Logan/Boston Hotel Shuttle (617-561-9500) are just two companies offering this service at a rate between $8-20. Information for these can be found in every terminal's baggage claim area. Advance reservation is not required but recommended.

Information on additional transportation options such as the subway, bus, limousine, and water shuttle can be found at www.massport.com/logan.
