Highlights

Century-old Kenmore Square hotel near Fenway Park, historic Back Bay, and downtown Boston

Hotel at a Glance: Boston Hotel Buckminster

Built more than a century ago, Boston Hotel Buckminster’s red-brick façade still commands attention in Kenmore Square. The venue has hosted performances by jazz legends including Billie Holiday and Charles Mingus. More notoriously, it was the site of the planning for the 1919 baseball-fixing scheme known as the Black Sox Scandal. Nowadays, nearby Boston University and downtown Boston offer more wholesome diversions.

  • Fenmore Grill serves classic American fare. The restaurant is open for breakfast, from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m..
  • Elegant guest rooms evoke colonial Boston with period decor but also feature flat-screen TVs and free WiFi.
  • Faneuil Hall Marketplace opened in 1742 and features a slew of candy shops, craft stands, and old-timey Irish pubs in downtown Boston.

Boston’s Kenmore Square: Fenway Park and Cultural Institutions

Kenmore Square—sometimes called Fenway–Kenmore or simply Kenmore—is a vibrant neighborhood about 3 miles north of downtown Boston. It’s home to one of the city’s most iconic sites: Fenway Park, home of the Boston Red Sox. Another Boston landmark, Back Bay Fens, is just across the street. The large public green space, designed in the 1870s by legendary landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted, contains numerous gardens and water features connected by meandering paths.

Many cultural institutions make their home in Kenmore Square as well, including the Boston Symphony Orchestra, Boston University, and the Museum of Fine Arts. With nearly 450,000 works, including several photography collections, it’s one of the most comprehensive art museums in the world. There are plenty of restaurants and bars to check out in the area, too, especially on the BU campus, which is centered on the neighborhood’s namesake square.

My only complaint about our room was it was extremely hot and we could not get the heat to a reasonable temperature unless we opened the window!
