Boston Hotel Buckminster, Boston
Hotel is in a great location close to the metro, Fenway Park, and Boston University and not far from shopping areas. Rooms are small and simple and bathrooms are outdated and in need of some maintenance. Fine place for a weekend stay solo but probably would not be ideal for a special couples or family vacation.
A Traveler, us2 night trip
Boston Hotel Buckminster, Boston
The first room was VERY SMALL & VERY HOT. Thermostat was broken & we couldn’t bring the temperature down 🙁 So we took an upgrade. Than it was a bit Cold. Again thermostat was not working and we had to call the front desk in the middle of the night. This hotel has it’s charm being so old, but there MUST be some RENOVATION. It’s character can be preserved with a few modern twist....A must I think. If not, it will fall apart. Heating system - Add more Electic Outlets - Add TV in master Suits - Fix Ventilation in Bathrooms - Change Sofa Beds ( A MUST) - Change some of the pillows ...: Also I will suggest to include breakfast in lieu of parking. Why deprive your clients of both.... Chipper hotels can do it. Get on board..... Staff was pleasant and helpful 😊
