Marathon Tours & Travel is the official travel agency for the Boston Marathon. We offer the lowest rates at a wide variety of three, four and five-star hotels in the best locations. Many properties are just a short walk from the finish line in Copley Square.
Managed by the Boston Athletic Association (B.A.A.) the Boston Marathon is the world's oldest annual marathon, ranks as one of the world's most prestigious road racing events and is the only Abbott World Marathon Majors race that requires a qualifying performance time. Held annually on Patriot’s Day, a holiday celebrated in Massachusetts and Maine in observance of the beginning of the American Revolutionary War, the Boston Marathon is rich in history and tradition. The legendary point-to-point course starts in rural Hopkinton, passes through numerous quaint New England towns before finishing on Boylston Street in the heart of Boston.
We recommend booking your hotel early as they sell out quickly!
We also offer a Boston Marathon Special Hotel Package with a three-night stay at the Boston Marriott Copley Place. The package includes a pre-race pasta dinner with a special guest speaker, and a private coach bus transfer from the Marriott to Athletes' Village in Hopkinton.
I just wanted to express my thanks to you and your entire group for an incredible weekend. I mistakenly assumed your package would simply ease my burden of a hotel room and transportation; however, it was so much more. The talks by Kathrine and Roger did so much for me and my nerves the night before my first Boston Marathon. Their talks and books with continue to inspire my passion for running. The friends I made at the dinner and my entire experience were enhanced by your hard work.
Thank you for all of your hard work that led to a wonderful Boston experience for us. The hotel room was perfect. The dinner and the talks from Kathryn and Roger were wonderful and inspiring. Also the bus transfer situation was just fine, with no problems whatsoever!
