I would have given the Gryphon House an excellent rating if the breakfast would have included something warm and gluten free. Unlike most B&B's, there was no cooked eggs, meats, pancakes, etc for breakfast. Gluten free selections were yogurt, fruit and hard boiled eggs. The staff was friendly and helpful and yes, I would stay here again because the place... More

Gryphon Inn is my go-to place to stay when in Boston. Have now visited 3 times in 3 different rooms. All rooms are incredibly spacious, including bathrooms, offering deliciously comfy beds, mini-kitchen alcoves and lots of amenities, from soaps, hairdryers, mirrors, ironing boards, etc. I don't like the sterility of large urban hotel chains. I much prefer the charm and... More

Gryphon House has been a consistent great spot to stay in Boston for us at least 5 or 6 times. We use it to meet with friends, take in Boston's many wonderful opportunities before moving on to other destinations. Rooms are very clean, noise from other guests is rare, staff is responsive and breakfasts are just right to start the... More

This B&B inn is meticulously maintained. It's very obvious that the owners take pride in decorating and furnishing each and every room. The staff is friendly and sincere. They always go out of their way to accommodate.

The Gryphon House was a nice bed and breakfast. Our room was very large and included a kitchenette - which would have been nice to use if we had been able to stay longer. We went to a Red Sox game, and the hotel manager was very nice and actually walked us down the street to show us how to... More

I have stayed all over Boston and this is the best! First of all the Kenmore location is perfect. You can take public transportation anywhere. The restaurants are excellent. The house itself is very well appointed , the staff is very accommodating and the environment so relaxing. I heartily recommend this place!

Staying in Fenway / Kenmore

Neighborhood 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.
