The Residence Inn Boston Logan Airport / Chelsea invites you to discover our little city during your stay.Chelsea is a historic inner urban suburb of Boston measuring a mere 1.8 square miles. It is the smallest city in Massachusetts, but its location – directly across the Mystic River from Boston – has made it a natural stopping point ever since the first European settlers landed in 1624. Known as “Winnissimmet” by the Native Americans, it is considered to be the first permanent settlement at Boston Harbor. Today, Chelsea’s diverse and densely populated community of 40,000 welcomes visitors from across the river and around the globe. Modern shopping, lodging and residential developments blend with charming old architecture, waterfront parks, walking paths and green spaces. Once here, you can stroll down the cobblestone street where our country’s first ferry service began or enjoy views of the Boston skyline from historic Admiral’s Hill to Powderhorn Hill.
Spanning across the Mystic River into Boston, the Tobin Bridge is a dramatic landmark, and just one of three bridges that highlight Chelsea’s traditional role as a gateway into Boston. Chelsea’s proximity to Logan International Airport – just a three-mile drive – also makes it the perfect choice for visitors who want to experience Boston without paying downtown Boston prices.
