Our stay at the Buckminster Hotel was very comfortable. Check-in was smooth and without incident and were offered an upgrade for an additional $20 on check-in and accepted the offer. A good choice because the room was huge and had a fantastic view of the xmas tree in the street. The room came with a full kitchen and living room...

The Buckminster Hotel was very convenient for my 2 day stay. The hotel is very clean and the staff was extremely accommodating. It is near the "T" and therefore was easy to travel to get to my destination. I had never used Uber before and the staff at the front desk was willing to help me get started (they strongly...

Our stay at the Buckminster for a long weekend in early December was very satisfactory. The hotel was within easy walking distance of most of the places we wanted to visit, and just up the street from the T which was convenient and easy to use. We'll definitely return!

We stayed at the Buckminster last night, it was very nice. The room was very large, the bed was comfortable and the room was very clean. The staff was friendly and accommodating. There is a lot around the hotel, even though Fenway was empty. We hope to stay there again when we can walk around more especially when the weather...

I was accused of smoking in my room which I did not. People went outside to smoke. Instead of them confronting me about it they waited two days later to charge my card for $150. I am having my attorney handle this because I feel a case of discrimination brewing up.

Not clean, really outdated, and way to expensive for what it was. When booking a room a "two bedroom with two king sized beds" means you have a living area and then a bedroom. Make sure that you book online if any because the hotel staff will mess it up not once but three times. Save yourself the time and...

Portsmouth, New Hampshire
Reviewed 26 December 2016

The only good thing about this hotel is the proximity to Fenway and Boston area hospitals. The room was so gross, the carpet in areas looked like it hadn't been vacuumed in 20 years, the bathtub was full of rust. I would never stay here again. Some sites called this a four star hotel and that is laughable.

Staying in Fenway / Kenmore

Neighbourhood 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.
