Brand new hotel as close to Fenway Park as you can get. The roof top lounge was great. I wish the bar would have stayed open past 9pm. There are several restaurants within walking distance. The Yard House is directly across the street. Very safe area. I would recommend this hotel to friends and family.

The hotel is very nice and new and we had a great time, but they really skimped on the beds. I woke up every day with a backache and neckache. The breakfast was great, never a problem getting a table. The patio is a very nice place to hang out - actually heard an entire concert that was held at Fenway. The swimming pool is extremely small, but probably nice for a few kids to enjoy. The staff was excellent and no problems with the room, actually more than we needed - a refrigerator, stove, microwave, couch, desk, dishwasher. The beds may be a deal breaker though because with all the walking we did, it's not easy without sleep! (stayed 4 nights).

Thank you for taking the time to let us know about your stay at the Residence Inn Boston Back Bay – Fenway. It was really nice to learn how much you enjoyed our accommodations, our staff and the complimentary daily hot breakfast buffet. We were however disappointed to find out that you did not find the bed to be conducive to a great night’s sleep and for this we are sorry. We hope that the next time you are visiting the area you will allow us the privilege of welcoming you back.

My husband and son and I stayed here this weekend. It was nice to stay in a new hotel, the rooms were clean, well appointed, nice tiles in the bathrooms, big shower (though a small space for shower and toilet). The nicest attraction is a rooftop deck that overlooks Fenway Park (you can't see in) with a nice view of the Back Bay. Big outdoor furniture with a bar. Small but nice indoor pool. We did not want to go out to dinner because we were tired from a day of touring, and what is nice is that you can purchase microwave items in the lobby and fix them in your room, at least ours had a small but nice kitchen. I would highly recommend this hotel for families, and you cannot be closer to Fenway. Very nice, I hope they keep it well maintained. Friendly car valet. Very nice lobby.

My family of 4 (two under 5) stayed at this new property during its opening week. We only stayed one night as we were going to a game at Fenway, but I was very impressed with their operation. The hotel was immaculate as it should be given it was just opened. The rooms were nicely equipped for a traveller that was planning a longer stay. The complimentary breakfast was good. You can't beat the location if you're planning to catch a game or 2 at Fenway and the cost per night was very reasonable for the area.

We stayed here for 10 nights and were very impressed with the hotel and the service. The Kenmore T station is just a 7-10 minute walk from the hotel, which is very convenient to go all over Boston. If you're in town for a Red Sox game this is the perfect place to stay. Fenway is just a couple minutes walk from the hotel. The roof top terrace is a great place to sit and look out at Boston. The room was a nice size for the 3 of us and the kitchen is a nice feature to have. The free breakfast is good, nothing over the top but they have eggs, waffles, cereal, fruit and coffee. My only complaint is that I think 9 am for breakfast to be over is a little early. Our room was always clean by the time we got back and were never bothered on the days we slept in. The manager, Michael, is a true professional and really added to our wonderful experience at the hotel. Before we booked the hotel I was nervous that the hotel would be too out of the way but it's not and the short walk to Kenmore station is nice. We were out at all hours and came home very late on some nights and never encountered any problems. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to anyone visiting Boston.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the 8th floor.

This hotel just opened up and everything was very clean and neat. We had a minor issue with the AC but the maintenance manager came right away to fix it - apparently if you want your AC higher than 74 the heat kicks on. My son fell on the treadmill in the fitness room and cut his leg and the staff quickly got him bandages. The staff and conceirge didn't know much about the restaurants and shops within walking distance so we had to figure things out for ourselves. Hopefully that will get better with time. Breakfast is complimentary and the main dishes change each day.
