Great staff, easy easy walking distance to Fenway and good quality bars and restaurant. Super close to the train stop. Staff really nice. If you book through the hotel you get a food voucher for their restaurant where we had a delicious breakfast.

I had a procedure scheduled at Beth Israel that required an overnight stay. The proximity, comfort of the hotel, and reasonable price made this a worthwhile choice. The parking was convenient but typically a Boston price, $35.

This was me and my boyfriend's second time staying here. It is a really welcoming and accommodating place. Room was clean and the view of Fenway Park was awesome. It's also perfect walking distance to the House of Blues. I would highly recommend.

Having stayed in New York & Cape Cod in the days prior to our visit to Boston we were expecting Hotel Buckminster on par with the other hotels given the cost (more expensive than both) however we were very disappointed! The hotel was very dated, the rooms were very small with lots of exposed pipes and weird noises, infact our...

I booked a Deluxe Queen room with Two queen beds. The suite was spacious but unfortunately it stank of cigarettes and mould. I wish I took heed of the reviews on TripAdvisor and Booking.com! The building is very old and in serious need of renovations. The furniture was old and worn out, the bathroom was small with stains in the...

Stayed at the Buckminster the night of the Billy Joel concert. Walking distance to Fenway and local pubs. We had a smaller room. Comfortable bed clean environment good secure parking. I believe they do some package deals as well. I will be calling them in the future to check out the package deals.

Hotel is conveniently located to everything. Easy walk into Back Bay shops, restaurants and activities. Across the street from Fenway Park. Friendly staff and accommodating to special requests. Parking is available next door. A little pricey but worth having it there.

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.
