This hotel is just amazing. The staff is super polite and professinoal. We came here in March first and our first choice of hotel was this hotel for the return visit now. We will definitely come here again. The location is also amazing , next to Target and Marshalls 5 stars

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.

Stayed there because a colleague did Had room on second floor which was quite nice (wood floors and all) and clean and large and wifi functioned also well. It came at a steep price (of more than 300 dollars) but it was only for a night, so that was that. Location -- near Fenway Park -- is good and only...

The two-bedroom suite was spacious and clean, friendly staff, and we had a short walk to Yawkey Way which led my sister and I to many restaurants and bars...having Fenway Park adjacent was pretty special, too! We would highly recommend the Boston Hotel Buckminster to our friends and family.

The building is a bit tired and worn. Not worth the price we had to pay. Staff was friendly and helpful. But little things like the first room they gave us was way at the back of the building right next to the Mass. Turnpike - noise was deafening! They did move us..no full length mirror in the room and...

We really like staying at the Buckminster Hotel because it is a nice Hotel and it is convenient for when we visit our daughter who is attending Boston University. The only complaint i would have is the constant and sometimes large fluctuation in the room rates.

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.
