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. More notoriously, it was the site where the 1919 baseball-fixing scheme, the Black Sox Scandal for the World Series was planned. 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.

The Buckminster is not your standard chain hotel. It is charming, well apportioned and staffed with folks who make you feel at home. We had a booking issue prior to our last visit, but the staff worked things out as always!

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
