A convenient Kenmore Square base designed by Stanford White, just a short walk from the subway

It's hard to get more central than Hotel Buckminster Boston. This convenient property is located in the heart of Kenmore Square, near Boston University; historic Back Bay; and the MBTA’s green line, to shuttle you to other parts of the city. Baseball lovers will rejoice in the proximity to historic Fenway Park, while the sartorially inclined will doubtless enjoy spending an afternoon at the famous shops on Newbury Street. And if you need some exercise, but would prefer to skip the handy on-site gym, you can take a walk along the river, just up Deerfield Street.

The hotel is a great place to spend your Beantown break in general, too; it's considered a destination unto itself, and not just because of its stylish American grill. One of the first hotels in town, it was designed by Stanford White, known for a certain local library (as well as New York’s Columbia University campus). The notorious Black Sox Scandal was hatched here, the first network broadcast in radio history took place here, and jazz legends from Louis Armstrong to Billie Holiday performed here. No need to go out and sightsee at all, really; when it comes to Boston history and culture, you might say the (ahem) buck stops here.
