Frommers came out on top as it is very comprehensive and as a result long - 660 pages plus. It covered all the places I would have expected and a lot more besides. For the places I knew, it described their main attractions sufficiently for it to point you in the right direction for a visit. It did suffer from the drawback of most of this type of guide ie there was limited coverage of places to stay for each location. I thought everyone headed straight over to Tripadvisor for this info these days! Also the places to eat listed were extremely limited by space restraints and, in my opinion, did not necessarily cover the best value and quality dining. However, again that is almost a universal drawback of this kind of guide.
If you are visiting a new area, this sort of guide is a must have. Even if you have visited before there is a lot you are likely to have missed. However, if the area you are visiting is limited geographically eg Boston, then you will really do better to get a specialist city guide. For a general guide of New England I do think Frommers has the edge over the others though.
