Hotels Brace for Boston Marathon Influx

    As the Boston Marathon fast approaches, hotels are prepping for an influx of runners and spectators. A total of 36,000 athletes are expected to officially participate in the April 21 race, which is 9,000 more than last year. According to this article the Boston Globe, Marlborough, Mass., hotels are offering blocks of rooms and transportation for runners and spectators looking for a less expensive option than staying near the finish line. Approximately 80 to 100 rooms are being added to hotels in Natick, Framingham, Westborough, and Milford, Mass., where participants and their families have traditionally stayed. Following last year’s bombings that killed three people and injured more than 260, the race has become a symbol of the Boston area’s resilience. Read more over at the Globe.
