Needs update but its perfectly located and a good buy. easy walk to Museum of Fine arts. Room ok but everything old and musty. staff very nice and helpful. Few nearby dinner spots. Trattoria Toscana is best we found. lots of patient parents staying here with sick kids nearby.

I am a VIP Expedia Member. I booked three nights in May 2014 at the LongWood Medical for my wife. Her sister was having an operation at the adjacent hospital. Upon check in, my wife noted that she may check out a day early because the date of discharge for her sister was unknown. The Longwood staff informed my wife... More

Please accept our apologies for having to pay for a night you did not use. I agree I would not use Expedia in booking a hotel. It seems always better to book direct with the hotel. Please let me know if you are coming back to this area. Would like the opportunity to make this up to you. Please contact... More

If you need accommodation near one of the Boston Hospitals, this is the place to book. And the food court next door just adds value. Our conference was at the Harvard Medical campus around the corner and since there are no other hotels in the vicinity, we booked in advance at The Inn. No regrets. The Inn is now linked... More

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.
