    Baseball fans will love this hotel’s proximity to Fenway. But even if you aren’t a baseball fan, there’s still something to be said for being in the center of all the excitement that comes along with gameday in Boston. I happened to be at the Buckminster when the Yankees were in town and had a good time watching out the window as hoard of fans came up from the T and turned the corner over to the park, while vendors and ticket scalpers aggresively peddaled there wares. The location of the Buckminster is also ideal for BU students and their families, or anyone interested in shopping and dining, as there are tons of excellent restaurants nearby, and newbury street is only a short, pleasant walk away. The rooms here are decent, but nothing especially jaw dropping. The décor is a bit sparse and some of the carpeting looks like it ought to have been replaced ten years ago, but you get what you pay for. Remember that this is an older building, so don’t expect the elevators to be high speed or the windows to be soundproof.

    First to Review

    The first thing you'll notice about this hotel is its awesome location right next to Fenway Park and Boston University. There are so many great restaurants and shops within walking distance that you probably won't even want to spend much time in the hotel anyway. But this hotel has a lot of character, from its unique, rounded exterior to its non-cookie cutter variety of room types. There are quite a few suite rooms that have more than one bedroom, which is ideal for families or larger groups of friends that want to split one room cost instead of getting two separate guest rooms. The entire second floor of the hotel has been newly renovated to include only superior king and queen rooms, which have full kitchens and nicer upgrades like hardwood floors. They don't offer room service, but they will bring deliveries from third parties to your door, which I thought was nice. However, they also offer complimentary breakfast and there's an Uno restaurant attached to the hotel if you still get hungry!
