Fenway Night Stay
Everyone was super friendly and accommodating. My boyfriend and I spent the night here after a baseball game at Fenway, bed was super comfortable and entire building was spotless. We had breakfast downstairs in their restaurant and it was to die for. Heather at the front desk was a delight. We will defiantly be back sooner rather than later!
