So Much History!!!

Reviewed 8 september, 2020

We stay in the Buckminster every year when we fly into Boston for Red Sox games. Yes, it is old, but they take great care of the property. One time in dozens of stays we had and issue and the staff addressed it immediately. You can stay in the room where the Chicago Blacksox Scandal was put into action. You can sit in the same bar(basement) where Babe Ruth used to get drunk before games. The walls have heard so many things in this place over the years. We will stay here until we can't come to Boston any more. You cannot stay any closer to Fenway.

Overpriced and terrible management

Reviewed 26 march, 2020

The window had a broken pane that was covered with cardboard, the room smelled kind of foul, and air conditioning in my room didn't work after complaining two days in a row. When I asked the manager if it had been addressed, she had no idea. Also, this woman, who is apparently the general manager, stands outside the front door on the sidewalk and smokes. Gross. And on top of it all, a colleague who used to work at Buckminster and left (with no apparent drama as I understand it but this manager doesn't like her) came to meet up with me at the hotel, and the manager apparently called her afterward and told her that she was trespassing and the police would be called if she came there again. What on earth? Totally crazy behavior - the hotel should be embarrassed by this conduct. Overpriced, poorly managed, and kind of decrepit. I travel for a living and have stayed in hotels all over the world, and I would never stay here again.

Clean and great location! Had a great stay. The room was clean, cozy, and the perfect size. No complaints. I plan on staying again. The restaurant at the hotel is a great place for a quick and yummy breakfast

Clean and pleasant

I was in town to visit my son at BU. The room was very clean and pleasant to stay in. The staff was friendly and very helpful. The hotel is right on the BU campus which made it very convenient. Right across the street from Fenway if you are hoping to catch a ballgame. I would stay there again!
