Kendall, Central and Harvard Squares, and Beacon Hill/Charles St just across the river are chock full of restaurants, pubs and bars of all stripes. This is a short listing of some recommended restaurants in Kendall Square.

This is a list of hotels in the area that are accessible by public transportation. However, we haven't checked these for availablity for the Mashathon dates.
If you're planning to drive to the WorldCat Mashathon Boston, be sure to factor parking costs into your trip. Parking at the NERD center is a flat rate of $27/day, so we strongly encourage you to take public transportation if you can.
Also, be aware that many of the hotels in Boston charge fees from $30-$50/day to park, too. Be sure to check parking fees when you book your hotel.
