The hotel staff was very accommodating and the housekeeping personnel were very responsive in delivering a roll-a-way bed and setting it up. The sofa bed was a little uncomfortable as are most sofa beds, but the regular queen beds were very comfortable.

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
