When traveling to Boston, the Bertram Inn serves as an oasis from the hustle of downtown Boston. Located two miles from the heart of the city and one block from public transportation, guests are able to remain close ...More to the cultural and business centers of Boston yet return to the tranquility of a bed and breakfast.
