The Curse of the Bambino may have ended years ago, but
loyal Red Sox fans will continue to infiltrate this
home to historic Fenway Park, where you can find
victory banners, people yelling in stereotypical
Boston accents, and lots of sports bars. Located
within Kenmore Square, the old gas station Citgo sign
is another Boston skyline classic seen throughout the
city. In addition to a hectic and diehard sports

Very pleased with staff, room clean and bed very comfortable. Able to walk to many attractions Fenway Park very close. Many restaurants nearby. Limited parking and costs $35 but for this area price not bad. Would stay here again.

We stayed at the hotel in order to attend an event at Agganis Arena which is a quick jaunt down the Green Line on the T. The parking lot was right next door, and there are several restaurants and fast food places in close proximity. Uno's (a pizza place) handles room service for

Wondering about oversized parking at the adjacent parking garage? We have a large SUV and concerned about parking on a downtown parking garage. Thanks.
I can not really say, the parking garage is quite large. I suggest you call the hotel and ask them. Having the measurements ready may help. Sorry I can not be more accurate

Do all of the rooms have their own private bathrooms, or are there some that share?
Every room that I have stayed in has it's own bathroom. I've stayed in a different room every time we visit which is about 7 times.

I see some reviews say there is a coffee maker, and some say there isn't. Could anyone confirm if there are coffee makers in the rooms, and if so, what style, Ie, packaged filters, K cups, etc. I ask because we usually take extra coffee with us rather than requesting from maid in order to have 3 or 4 cups in the morning, so we need to know what type of coffee to take. Thanks in advance.
We have coffee makers in all rooms. We also supply 2 regular and 2 decaf per day.
