From inside Boston Logan Airport
If you're flying into Logan, you can either walk to the hotel through enclosed skyways or take the free Hilton shuttle.
Walking From the Airport Terminals A & E
Terminals A & E - From Terminal A & E follow signs for "bridge to central parking" and "pedestrian bridge." Take this walkway until the parking elevators. Proceed to second floor and into the Hilton Hotel via skybridge.
FYI, Delta and Continental fly into Terminal A; Terminal E welcomes international flights. The walk from other terminals is possible, but long...especially with luggage. We recommend the shuttle for that.
The skybridge is open 24 hours a day, and is right next to the New England Ballroom, home of the Smofcon consuite and major program items.
From the Airport by Hilton Shuttle
Follow signs to baggage claim area of terminal. Go to courtesy phones and press the button for Hilton. Go out to the curbside area that says "courtesy buses". Look for the Hilton silver and blue shuttle, which arrives every 15 minutes.
