Need some Boston info

I'll be flying to Boston in late August to give my Hercules talk at SHARE. The conference is at the Hynes Convention Center. I'm not about to rent a car. (I understand that driving in Boston is like driving in Manhattan, with the added insanity of roads that were all originally cow paths, instead of Manhattan's (mostly) neat grid.)

I need to know how easy - or even possible - it is to get from Logan to the convention center area, and from there to wherever I find a hotel by way of mass transit. I also need suggestions for areas of the city on Hotwire's list (Back Bay/Copley Square, Boston Common/Theater District, Airport, Quincy Market/Financial District, Chestnut Hill, Medford/Somerville, Cambridge, and so on) to look in; the best deal is in the Quincy Market district, but is that going to work, transportation-wise?

I'm arriving Tusday evening and departing Thursday afternoon, so I won't have a lot of time while i'm there...
