“Great Location!”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

I was just there this past July. I loved the hotel! First of all, the location was amazing! I could see Fenway Park from my room! I was there on a baseball trip, so that was awesome. The rooms and hotel was clean and every single person that I encountered that worked there was very nice and helpful! I love that breakfast included, nothing out of the ordinary, but satisfying. The rooms were very spacious as well, there's a kitchen but I did not use it at all.

I selected the Residence Inn at Fenway as part of a stay-cation plan. We had tickets to the Red Sox (day game) for 4th of July and decided to arrive the night before to avoid the hassle and wake up right where we wanted to be, car parked and ready to go to the game. This hotel was THE perfect choice for us, with oversized rooms/suites that allowed our family to stretch out and a virtually brand new property so everything was clean and new - kudos to the new urban-style Residence Inn..very sleek and stylish. The location - you are literally right in the middle of Fenway action (although noise was not an issue). In addition, there are so many amazing places to eat and play immediately at your door step. There is a Bar Louis right downstairs and our favorite, Sweet Cheeks BBQ - the best and not to be missed - within a couple blocks. Kids enjoyed ice cream at Emack and Bolios up the street and the new ping pong place below Game On. We also visited Beer Works which was also very close. Other notable restaurants in the area are Island Creek Oyster Bar (the best) and Eastern Standard. While the Residence Inn is in the heart of the Fenway, it is also a great location to explore the rest of the city. We were able to walk to the T (about a 5-7 minute walk) and go to the Museum of Science and also very close to Back Bay. A couple of hidden benefits about the hotel are the pool (indoor) and while small, it was something to do while we were waiting for fireworks to start and then best of all - the near rooftop deck, with comfy seating, bar service and amazing views (I think it was on the 11th floor). We were able to see the entire Boston fireworks display from this vantage point and it was amazing. Lastly, the service was great. Front desk check-in, very friendly and helpful and the valet service was actually really fast. Yes - parking was costly, but honestly, parking at the hotel for the night was less than or at least equal to parking for a Red Sox game so we felt like we came out ahead. Breakfast was the typical buffet and somewhat crowded, with seating spilling out into the lobby but it was 4th of July so the entire area was packed. Ironically, the game was rained out that day but based on how much fun we had just being tourists in our own city we weren't even that devastated. Residence Inn Fenway - great choice - great location - clean, new, roof deck - great Boston stay.

Room Tip: High floor facing Fenway if possible

It was my first time back to Fenway Park in more than 20 years, and the first visit for my wife and 12 year old son. Having this hotel in the backyard of the ballpark was wonderful! I loved the beds and it was more quiet than I expected or had heard.

The best of the hotel is the acess to metro, and a spacious room, with a kitchen. Famíly friend indeed. Average breakfast to the European standard.

The negative's-the frontdesk is only professional, not friendly.

This hotel is a great location, very nice rooms and great staff! However, I was very uncomfortable with the crowds of people gathering in the lobby, at all hours. It was clear to me that most of those people were not guests staying at the hotel. It gave me a very uneasy feeling.

Great location for our trip to a game at Fenway. Within a nice walk to transportation anywhere in town or to Commonwealth Ave with a nice stroll through the brownstone area towards Boston Common. Room with a very comfortable king bed and nice kitchenette. Great layout for working in room if required.
