Parking and Directions


Parking

Directions assume you're coming down Arlington St. from Storrow Drive/the Public Garden.

Free Parking
(There are a handful of guest spaces in the neighborhood)
Come down Arlington and go left onto Piedmont (it's just after you pass the castle). You can start looking for visitor spaces on Piedmont. Take your first right onto Church – more visitor spaces on the right – then go right onto Melrose -- there's a few more on the left. Melrose takes you back to Arlington. Go left onto Arlington and follow Meter Parking directions below.

Meter Parking
Go straight down Arlington St. As you pass Melrose, there are four meter spaces on the right. If those are taken, go over the bridge over the MA Pike, look off to your right at the CVS. If you see a meter open, go right and park there.
If not, continue straight (Arlington St. turns into Herald St.), go left onto Washington, then left onto Marginal St. There are usually open meter spaces along Marginal.
If there's nothing there, you can take a right onto Charles. There are spaces a short ways up on the left.

Parking Lots
Just after you cross Stuart St. and pass the Smith & Wollensky castle, there's an outdoor lot on the right.  The Revere Hotel has a large indoor lot at 200 Stuart St. Directly across the street from the Revere, there's a Motormart garage as well.
