Why It’s a Deal Round-trip airfare between Chicago and Boston starts at $170 in mid-September (American Airlines), according to Kayak. Add to that $889 per person for accommodation ($211 for two nights at the Marriott Quincy, $178 for two nights at the Cape Codder Resort & Spa, $64 for one night at Comfort Inn & Suites Hartford, $98 for one night at the Holiday Inn Rutland, $242 for one night at the Omni Mount Washington Resort, and $96 for one night at the Clarion Hotel Airport in Portland), and you’re looking at $1,059 just for airfare and basic accommodation. For $530 more, this package gets you the airfare and eight nights’ accommodation, but also includes daily breakfast plus one lunch, a comprehensive touring itinerary to some of New England’s most scenic locales including transportation and entry fees, and all taxes and fees included.
