Welcome to Boston Hotel Buckminster located in Kenmore Square, a few steps away from Fenway Park. Built in 1897 this hotel takes you back in time with its old world elegance. A historic hotel that hosted a speakeasy in the 1920's and hosted jazz legends including Billie Holiday and Charles Mingus.

Our 132 guestrooms and suites have been tastefully designed for simplicity, elegance and comfort. All accommodations include complimentary Wi-Fi, HD Flat screen TVs with HBO, microwaves, mini-fridges and large soft beds. For the best views in the house, ask for our City View rooms overlooking Fenway Park, the iconic Citgo sign and the Boston landscape. Boston Hotel Buckminster is within walking distance to Boston University and House of Blues. Come join us for a relaxing stay where the crossroads to history and baseball collide in an elegant fashion.

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.

Very pleased with staff, room clean and bed very comfortable. Able to walk to many attractions Fenway Park very close. Many restaurants nearby. Limited parking and costs $35 but for this area price not bad. Would stay here again.

We stayed at the hotel in order to attend an event at Agganis Arena which is a quick jaunt down the Green Line on the T. The parking lot was right next door, and there are several restaurants and fast food places in close proximity. Uno's (a pizza place) handles room service for

Wondering about oversized parking at the adjacent parking garage? We have a large SUV and concerned about parking on a downtown parking garage. Thanks.
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

Do all of the rooms have their own private bathrooms, or are there some that share?
Every room that I have stayed in has it's own bathroom. I've stayed in a different room every time we visit which is about 7 times.

I see some reviews say there is a coffee maker, and some say there isn't. Could anyone confirm if there are coffee makers in the rooms, and if so, what style, Ie, packaged filters, K cups, etc. I ask because we usually take extra coffee with us rather than requesting from maid in order to have 3 or 4 cups in the morning, so we need to know what type of coffee to take. Thanks in advance.
We have coffee makers in all rooms. We also supply 2 regular and 2 decaf per day.

"This time I took a suite on the second floor. Very quiet. The Staff could not be nicer or more helpful. T"
"Fenmore Grill needs to be open in the evening & the $10 per day coupon needs to be reactivated. "
"Cool down 520!"
"Rooms are run down. During my 6-night stay they did not bother to repair the phone in my room, so I was not able to call reception even. "
"Top Floor Rocks"
