I've been to Boston numerous times but never stayed here. It was a last minute trip and this was a reasonably priced hotel so we booked it. To my surprise it was one of the nicest hotels I've stayed in - such character and elegance of old time Boston. The high ceilings with the pipes running through only added to...

This place was exotic to me, being from the South. It's an older building with winding hallways and mysterious doorways. The front staff is outstanding. I love them to bits and pieces. The directions I received were that the parking garage is across from it. It's not. It's on the same side of the street about one block down. This...

My husband and I stayed at this hotel when we went to Boston for a Jays/Red Sox game! It is literally a stones throw from the stadium...we could see it from our room. It had so much character and the rooms were not like standard hotel rooms...they all looked a little different. The restaurant in the hotel was DELISH!!! We...

The room is great for 1 night MAXIMUM. Very small rooms, almost like an old bedroom feel. Outdated furniture. Nice staff. Parking is an additional $45. $100 holding fee on top of paying for the room which I wasn't too thrilled about. I was there for a holiday party at Fenway so it was super close to walk to and...

I greatly enjoyed a one night stay at the Buckminster. I arrived early on a train from NYC at the Back Bay Station, so couldn't check into my room right away. The lobby was full, but I found a place to sit after checking my bag with the front desk. They have wifi in the rooms and lobby, so that...

Our stay at the Buckminster Hotel was very comfortable. Check-in was smooth and without incident and were offered an upgrade for an additional $20 on check-in and accepted the offer. A good choice because the room was huge and had a fantastic view of the xmas tree in the street. The room came with a full kitchen and living room...

The Buckminster Hotel was very convenient for my 2 day stay. The hotel is very clean and the staff was extremely accommodating. It is near the "T" and therefore was easy to travel to get to my destination. I had never used Uber before and the staff at the front desk was willing to help me get started (they strongly...

Our stay at the Buckminster for a long weekend in early December was very satisfactory. The hotel was within easy walking distance of most of the places we wanted to visit, and just up the street from the T which was convenient and easy to use. We'll definitely return!

We stayed at the Buckminster last night, it was very nice. The room was very large, the bed was comfortable and the room was very clean. The staff was friendly and accommodating.

Staying in Fenway / Kenmore

Neighbourhood Profile
Fenway / Kenmore
The Curse of the Bambino may have ended years ago, but loyal Red Sox fans will continue to infiltrate this home to historic Fenway Park, where you can find victory banners, people yelling in stereotypical Boston accents, and lots of sports bars. Located within Kenmore Square, the old gas station Citgo sign is another Boston skyline classic seen throughout the city. In addition to a hectic and diehard sports mentality, this neighborhood is also home to some of Boston’s many universities. Move from Boston University territory to that of Northeastern, and spend time at the famous Museum of Fine Arts. For more culture, check out the smaller but equally beautiful Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. Continue off the beaten path and check out the green space in the Back Bay Fens, a pretty community garden. This diverse neighborhood has a mix of universities, sports, culture, and more residential green space.
