You are very close to the Lincoln Plaza on Lincoln Street and could practically walk it. The street the hotel is on joins Lincoln Street. The mall has a Japanesse , Mexican, and Italian restaurant in it along with Target, Barnes & Noble and a couple of small eating places. Also in the close area is a McDonalds and a supermarket. Worcester State is on the other side of town, I would guess about 6 miles.
WE do not have a shuttle but we do have cab companies that we work with closely and we can provide train information for the Worcester train station. It takes about 1.5 hours from Worcester to downtown Boston on the train. Its a great ride on the weekends.
