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, hotel guests can walk to iconic Fenway Park to take in a more wholesome ball game. Boston University and downtown Boston are also nearby.

  • Fenmore American Bistro serves boston cream pie, classic American fare, and local brews. The restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
  • Elegant guest rooms evoke colonial Boston with period decor but also feature iPod docking stations and wireless Internet access.
  • 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 Back Bay: Victorian Architecture and Historical Landmarks on the Charles River

Boston’s Back Bay used to be just that—a literal bay that extended into the Charles River. In the mid 1800s, developers added landfill and created the grid-style neighborhood that remains today. Victorian brownstones and kempt gardens line the wide avenues of this waterside enclave that lies just west of Beacon Hill. Boston is a highly walkable city, so you’ll be able to get to several other neighborhoods from Back Bay as well.

Often called the Rodeo Drive of the East, Newbury Street stretches eight blocks east from Massachusetts Avenue to Arlington Street. The quaint tree-lined street is home to dozens of high-end retailers such as Chanel and Cartier, as well as vintage boutiques and consignment shops. Between Newbury and the Charles lies some of the most desirable real estate in Boston; the historic brownstones are worth checking out. The Esplanade, a 3-mile jogging path along the Charles, is especially popular in the summer. There you can take sailing lessons or sip lemonade on a sunny afternoon.

The famed walking path known as the Freedom Trail begins a mile east of Back Bay in the Boston Common, and it’s a must-see for history buffs. The 2.5-mile trail wends through cobblestone streets, bringing Revolutionary history to life with stops at the Old South Meeting House, where plans for the Boston Tea Party were secretly hatched, and the site of the Boston Massacre.

Customer Reviews

This was great! Rooms were HUGE, location was amazing, staff were very friendly and helpful. The property is a bit old but is very clean and comfortable. We will definitely be back.

Easy to get to, hotel room was clean, subway a very close walk
Camilla P. · March 30, 2017
Location was good, but the room was tiny and the bed was a full size, too small and uncomfortable mattress and pillows...to me. Unfortunately we were on the inside room with a terrible view of the inside walls.
