Older style hotel but easy to get to from Logan Airport and it's walking distance to Fenway Park. Staff were great. Our window overlooked Fenway Park and you couldn't hear the traffic or noise. Has hotel laundry on each floor too which was convenient.More

I can not really say, the parking garage is quite large. I suggest you call the hotel and ask them. Having the measurements ready may help. Sorry I can not be more accurate
