I said a few things about this in the plenary, so here are the
details.  The September T10 meeting is in the Doubletree Hotel
in Westboro, MA.  This is in the Boston suburbs, near I-495
and the Mass Pike (I-90) - 5400 Computer Drive, Westboro, MA:

r+Drive,+Westboro,+MA&sll=37.0625,-95.677068&sspn=52.68309,79.013672&ie=
UTF8&ll=42.28531,-71.561937&spn=0.048576,0.077162&z=14
The hotel is actually located on a frontage road off of Route 9
- if headed west, take the first exit after I-495 and double back
to your right.
Providence (TF Green - PVD) is a more convenient airport to deal
with than Boston (Logan - BOS).  If all other things are equal, I
suggest using Providence *if* it doesn't require an additional
plane change.  Manchester Airport (MHT) is over an hour's drive
to the north - Providence is about an hour south, and Boston
Logan is about 45min to the east.  All of these travel times can
be much longer during rush hours.
>From Boston, Dan Colegrove has confirmed that the hotel's shuttle
will pick up/drop off at the Southborough commuter rail station.
The train schedule from South Station, Boston is here:

The fare (Zone 6) is $6.75.  If you're not arriving by train,
the MBTA Silver Line bus runs from Logan Airport to South Station.
In Boston, buy your ticket before getting on the train, as there's
a surcharge for paying onboard.
The hotel's shuttle will **NOT** pick up/drop off at Logan
Express Framingham (express busses to/from Logan airport every
30min), but if a friend has a car this can be convenient:

The hotel recommends Knight's Airport Limo for service to/from
all three airports: http://www.knightsairportlimo.com/ .
We look forward to seeing you in September.
Thanks,
--David
