Built in 1897, the historic Boston Hotel Buckminster was one of the first hotels built in the Boston area. The hotel was designed by renowned architect Stanford White, who also designed the Boston Public Library as well as many of the elegant Back Bay townhouses on Beacon Street. The hotel is located on the triangular intersection of Beacon Street and Brookline Avenue in Boston's Kenmore Square. Today the Boston Hotel Buckminster stands as the "Heart of Kenmore Square", offering 116 guest rooms and suites as Boston's only true Budget Hotel. The Boston Hotel Buckminster's location is second to none in the City of Boston, as it is the closest hotel to both Fenway Park and Boston University. The hotel serves visitors to the Back Bay and Downtown Boston areas year round and provides easy access to the Kenmore Station on Boston's Subway System and is within a short walk to the vast majority of Boston's attractions. Parking is available for a fee.

Great location/Good Place to Stay

I've stayed at the Buckmister about 5 times and consider is a solid "good place to stay." I've always received a good rate, the location is perfect for me, and the rooms have everything you need. In my experience some rooms are nicer than other rooms (some have new TV's and furniture and some have older) but all the rooms are clean and comfortable. The one thing I think they could improve is making outlets easier to access to plug in a laptop or charge a phone.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Take a walk over to the other side of Fenway park to Kilmarnock Street & Peterborough and check out the food there. Thorton's Grill and El Pelón are great!
