For those who likes baseball, this hotel is the perfect location. The hotel location is not just near the Fenway park, but also near the subway station, so it was very convinient. Regarding the room, size was good enough to stay two people and was very clean.

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. We had a room with two bedrooms plus a bathroom as we were 3 people travelling. Let me point out the positive aspects first: -location (1 block away from a subway station) -quiet room Negative aspects: -We asked for a no smoking room, however and for some reason, in the bathroom, in...

We booked this hotel based primarily on it's closeness to Fenway Park. What an amazing experience. We were just a few minutes walk from Fenway and it sure helped not having to deal with the crowds after the game trying to find transportation to go anywhere. It goes without saying this is an extremely old building, thus, you are going... More

Rating this average, simply because I expected more for the money. I've stayed in hotels like this before, but not for $400 a night. Our room was on the 5th floor, smelled like pot, shower barely worked, but it was clean enough and it was fine for a night. I've stayed in hotels in NYC for the same price and... More

Only thing good about this hotel was it's location. I would rather stay farther away then stay here again, for the price this hotel falls way below the standard, from the sub par "just remodeled" rooms to the older "in desperate need of repair rooms" (we changed rooms 3 times) this whole hotel is in desperate need of a makeover...

Definitely will stay again! Room was clean and had lots of space. Staff was superb. Great location with Fenway 5 min away and the subway just steps from the door. Highly recommend for all travelers. Can't wait to go back!

We're it not for the location and quirky old-school charm, I would have rated it a zero solely for the inept and argumentative management. Ironically, the inability to process a 3rd party travel app payment, the unwillingness to research a solution (which other properties have before), and the argumentative and confrontational demeanor of the "manager" led to an abrupt afternoon...

We had the two bed unit which was great for our group. Our room was large and clean. The hotel has a charm about it which we found refreshing after mainly staying in the holiday inn/Hampton inn type hotels on our road trip. The parking next door is easy but quite expensive. It is a short walk to Fenway park... More

Pretty hotel, very clean helpful staff just wish we were told $100 security deposit would be taken off debit card and held on for a few business days even after room was paid for in full initially. Pretty hotel, small room but quaint

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.
