Housing and Meals




Accomodations are provided at The Constitution Inn, located less than a five minute walk from the Museum. A room block has been set aside for NEH Summer Scholars for a rate of $159/night from Sunday through Friday night of each workshop week. We are grateful to The Constitution Inn for extending the government per-diem rate for Boston, MA as rates in the city during the summer months are often very high.


The Constitution Inn has been recently refurbished and rooms come equipped with refrigerators, microwaves, air conditioning, and wireless access. King bed, Queen bed, and double bed rooms are available. The Museum will arrange for room sharing should any Summer Scholar wish to share a room with another participant. A single participant should expect to spend $954 on room accomodations if they arrive Sunday and depart the following Saturday. A participant sharing a room should expect to spend $477 on accomodations. Stay before Sunday and for the following Saturday cannot be guaranteed at the reduced rate; Summer Scholars who wish to extend their stay in Boston may be asked to pay the standard rate charged by The Constitution Inn.




A whole host of amenities are included in your stay. Guests have full access to the on-site YMCA fitness center including a 25 yard pool, cardio and strength training equipment, and access to the sauna. A meeting room has been reserved for Summer Scholars to use as a quiet reading and work space. The Museum will provide any required resources and books in this space. A lounge area is available for social gatherings with vending machines and seating. On-site laundry facilities are also available. 


Summer Scholars will be on their own for most meals throughout the week. Boston is home to a rich assortment of restaurants that cater to every taste and budget. Information will be provided to participants upon arrival on their meal options. Lunches in the area immediately surrounding the Museum are approximately $8 - $12. As a large city, dinners in Boston can be as simple as fast-food for ~$6 to elaborate gourmet meals for ~$60+. On average one can expect to pay about $20 for a sufficient dinner meal. There are many options in the immediate neighborhood of the Museum and hotel. Within a 20 minute walk is the famed North End neighborhood, Boston's Little Italy, with over 100 restaurants in less than a half square mile. Boston is also famous for its seafood and New England clam chowder - don't miss it!
