My girlfriend and i spent our anniversary here this past winter during the largest snow storm of the year. While everything else in the city was shut down, they had a restaurant and bar open by the lobby. The food was very impressive (but also expensive) as well as providing a good selection of drinks. However the waitstaff were EXTREMELY... More

This hotel was the perfect blend of historical culture as it's an older hotel but we stayed in an updated "superior queen" room. We had a view of Fenway just a block's walk away. The subway station is less than a minute away so very easy to get anywhere in the city. The staff was all very friendly.

Great hotel the staff was friendly and very helpful and rooms were clean. Awesome view of Fenway from our room which is why we choose this hotel. The hotel is old so keep that in mind when booking if you are looking for new and trendy this isn't your place but the charm of the building was great and like... More

Awful and rude front desk staff. None were polite or friendly, except I did notice a significant shift in attitude when the manager was around. The location is the only good thing about it, as it's really close to Fenway. Old amenities in the room, poor lighting. Was clean enough however.

I stayed at the Buckminster on a Thursday-Monday for a relative's graduation from Boston U. Room 413 was the smallest category with a queen bed and the features others have described. The view was onto the interior courtyard containing the hotel's mechanical equipment (no street view). There was plenty of sunlight and breeze. The equipment noise could be bothersome to... More

The Hotel Buckminister is one of the oldest hotels from Boston and has a slightly funny shape like a boat with roads on both sides, one side is quiter and other noisy.. rooms are of different sizes and since I was there for conference and was away from 7 am till 10 pm, I chose a smaller one, so no...

Stayed at Hotel Buckminster while looking for apartments for grad school. It is an ideal location to Boston University and the hub of Kenmore/Fenway area. Room was a two room suite with two queen beds in bedroom and a sleeper sofa in living room. Actual room was older and in need of some cosmetic work, But the location is what... More

We stayed here 2 nights to see a game at Fenway. We had a great room looking dead at Fenway park entrance. Rooms were huge (jr. King suite) and beds real comfortable. Only complaint is the pizza joint downstairs had music blaring until 2am and started up again at 8am so we didn't get much sleep but still had fun.

We stayed at this beautiful historic hotel last Summer (2014) We went for a baseball game against the Toronto Blue Jays and Boston Red socks. The stay was comfortable and clean but for the price, the TV could have been upgraded to a more modern TV (it was a small 20 inch tube TV) The bathroom was very large and... More

I have used the Hotel Buckminster for a room block before, because it is located right near my apartment and we walked in and had no problems booking and our guests had no complaints. This time however, was a nightmare. We booked 10 rooms, for our wedding guests, two of which I reserved for my mother and one for my... More
